Newlyweds are left devastated after thieves sneak into wedding to steal all their gifts and thousand

A newly married couple were left distraught after thieves broke into their wedding stealing thousands of pounds in cash meant for their honeymoon and all of their gifts.

Carley and Paul Atkinson were married on Saturday on a farm near Corfe, on the Blackdown Hills in Somerset.

The cash, and other presents, had been left in a teepee and was going to pay towards their honeymoon in Canada.

'It feels like we've had an amazing dream and then someone's just come in and sort shattered little bits of it,' Mrs Atkinson said.

About 150 guests had given them cash gifts at the wedding held on Mrs Atkinson's father's farm.

'I can't believe that someone would actually come in on private land and take something so personal,' Mrs Atkinson said.

Her husband added: 'I'm struggling.

'It keeps getting me when I slow down and stop working, it does hit me that this happened.'

The couple put the cash in a box inside one of the teepees used during the wedding and left it while they packed away other items between 2am and 5am on Sunday.

My view: This is so strange,"The cash, and other presents, had been left in a teepee". It is sad how low people can stoop, someone must have been watching them during the ceremony.
