Winning couple enjoy dream day
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.”
