Win­ning cou­ple en­joy dream day

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP - CHRIS SLATER

AY­OUNG cou­ple are be­gin­ning mar­ried life to­gether af­ter their dream wed­ding.

Rick Tay­lor, 30, orig­i­nally from Prest­bury, and Jenni Booth, 31, were the lucky cou­ple who came out on top in the Win a Wed­ding com­pe­ti­tion run by our sis­ter pa­per the Manch­ester Evening News.

And they said they were over the moon af­ter ty­ing the knot At St Peter’s Church in Prest­bury on Fri­day.

The cou­ple col­lected the most to­kens from the pa­per to beat more than 400 other en­trants to scoop the fan­tas­tic prize worth more than £25,000.

From Jenni’s dress, hair and make-up to the wed­ding cake, flow­ers and pho­tog­ra­phy, no ex­pense was spared as part of the pack­age to en­sure their day was one they will never for­get.

They are then set to jet off on a mini-hon­ey­moon to Lake Como in Italy be­fore later em­bark­ing on a lux­ury trip to the scenic is­land of Saint Lu­cia in the Caribbean, also part of the prize.

Sales trainer Rick and re­cruit­ment con­sul­tant Jenni be­gan dat­ing three and a half years ago af­ter they met whilst work­ing to­gether 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 Tur- key.

Their cer­e­mony was held in front of 60 friends and fam­ily in­clud­ing Rick’s mum Carol.

This was fol­lowed by a glitzy bash for around 100 guests at the Wors­ley Mar­riott Ho­tel and Coun­try Club.

The cou­ple, who live in Droyls­den, said af­ter win- ning the prize in April that it had trans­formed their lives, as they had been able to marry much ear­lier than ex­pected and save for a house.

Jenni said she could never dreamt of a wed­ding like this.

Speak­ing af­ter the wed­ding Rick told the Ex­press: “It was just a won­der­ful, won­der­ful day. We’re so happy.

“We just want to thank all the spon­sors, who have been ab­so­lutely amaz­ing.

“We couldn’t have done it with­out them.

“To have the chance to sit them down and talk to them and use their ex­pe­ri­ence, has meant the end re­sult re­ally has been our dream wed­ding.

“We’re just so thank­ful to them for their help and sup­port.”

“And also to the M.E.N who have given us a wed­ding day we will re­mem­ber for the rest of our lives.”
