The couple prepared Panzanella salad made from tomatoes, bread and potatoes that were thrown away by supermarkets and Moroccan-style vegetables from ingredients which had passed their best-before dates, Cambridge News reports.

However, wedding guests aware of the food source, applauded the meal prepared by a FoodCycle  charity for the couple.

"All the guests were aware and it went down really well, everyone loved the food and everyone loved the idea."

"All of that food was collected and prepared by a charity called FoodCycle in Cambridge – had that food not been used for our wedding it would have all gone in the bin," the groom said.

"We had little jam jars with candles in them, lots of bean cans with flowers in them and all the timber for the signs we put up was recycled. The wedding was entirely designed by ourselves. We got married outside on a cricket pitch and everything else we organised through people we know.

"We decided if we were going to pay someone to design and cook food for our wedding then it would be perfect if it was FoodCycle," Charlie added.

"By having FoodCycle cater our wedding we wanted to give them some publicity and at the same time have a wedding close to our hearts," the bride said.

"That's the first wedding we've done. It's always good to have a challenge and this was certainly a challenge. Zoe and Charles were very relaxed about it and knew exactly what they were getting themselves into. It was really good fun," Alex Collis, owner of FoodCycle told reporters.

"It was a really lovely day and showed what Food Cycle is all about. We got lots of compliments and somebody said to me as a vegetarian that it was the best wedding food she'd ever eaten", he added.
