Cou­ple win their dream wed­ding

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A YOUNG cou­ple say their lives have been trans­formed af­ter scoop­ing an all ex­penses paid dream wed­ding cour­tesy of our sis­ter news­pa­per the Manch­ester Evening News’ Win a Wed­ding com­pe­ti­tion.

There were tears of joy as Rick Tay­lor, 29, orig­i­nally from Prest­bury and Jenni Booth, 30, were an­nounced as the lucky win­ners at the Wors­ley Mar­riott Ho­tel and Coun­try Club, where their cel­e­bra­tion will be held.

The cer­e­mony will be con­ducted at St Peter’s Church in the vil­lage.

The pair will then make their way in luxury over to the ho­tel for the re­cep­tion.

Re­cruit­ment con­sul­tant Jenni and sales­man Rick , who now live in Droylsden, col­lected more to­kens than any of the more than 400 other en­trants to claim the cov­eted prize.

And they say it is a ‘dream come true’ as they get ready to tie the knot in Septem­ber, a full two years ear­lier than they orig­i­nally planned.

The amaz­ing pack­age in­cludes rings, the dress, groom wear, flow­ers, cars, cater­ing and more.

That’s as well as a seven-day hon­ey­moon to the Caribbean is­land of Saint Lu­cia.

Jenni said: “I just can’t be­lieve it.

“We were over the moon just to be in the fi­nal three but we were hop­ing and pray­ing that we’d done enough.

“It took a while to sink in af­ter our names were read out.

“It’s go­ing to change our lives, it re­ally is.”

The cou­ple were joined by Jenni’s mum, Mar­garet, and step-dad John and sis­ter Adele as well as Rick’s mum, Carol, at the an­nounce­ment.

They be­gan dat­ing three and a half years ago af­ter meet­ing when they both worked at the tele­coms firm Vir­gin Me­dia.

They moved in to­gether a year later and Rick popped the ques­tion in July last year af­ter whisk­ing her off for a ro­man­tic break in Fethiye in Turkey.

But Jenni said she could never have dreamed of a wed­ding like this.

Rick said: “We saw the com­pe­ti­tion and just de­cided to go for it, and for the past month it has lit­er­ally been our lives.

“We’re so grate­ful for the help we had from fam­ily and friends. It’s go­ing to be an un­be­liev­able day and we just can’t wait now.
