Couples gear up for £10k wedding final
FIVE loved-up couples have been chosen to battle it out for a dream £10,000 wedding.
The finalists for Wave 102 and the Doubletree by Hilton’s Win a Wedding competition have been announced, sparking a frantic fundraising dash to victory.
The couples have until noon on Monday April 2 to raise as much money as possible for children’s charity Help for Kids, with the winner landing a luxury wedding at the Doubletree in Kingsway West.
Finalists Kerrie Law, 33, and Danny Foulis, 32, from Trottick, have been together for a year-anda-half, and have been engaged since September.
Danny said: “We wanted to do something for charity and I saw the Facebook post. If we win it then great but if not then we still helped a great cause.”
Childhood sweethearts Samantha Buchan, 22, and Paul Whyte, 22, from Douglas, have been engaged for three years. The couple have known each other since primary school before getting together when they were 16.
Samantha said: “It would be a dream wedding, it’s everything we were going to go for.”
Carey Sinclair, 29, and Gordon Halliday, 31, have been together for almost seven years and engaged for four. They have one daughter Chaise, four. The couple met on a night out in Canada where Carey was working in a gym and Gordon was over for a placement. Two weeks after returning home, they moved in together.
Carey added: “It would be nice to win but I enjoy fundraising. I’m having fun already.”
Mairi Kirkpatrick, 27, and Graeme Hind, 28, from Lochee, met at a university party and have been together for six years. They have a two-year-old son, Arran, and Mairi said: PAGE 16
“This will be his first time being involved with fundraising.”
Paul Wylie, 36, and Lianne Carr, 35, have been together for almost 10 years and got engaged in January. They live in Lochee with their six-year-old daughter Mia.

The finalists have their fingers crossed as their fundraising battle begins.
