Our story: 

We have been together for 12 years this November, we have two beautiful children however with our son being on the autistic spectrum life has not always been easy. We decided to move to Cornwall in January for a better life for our family and by February we had made that a reality! However by upping and moving our life we had to put wedding plans on the back burner. We are a fun outdoorsy couple who love a challenge and always ready to try something new! This would mean the absolute world to us! We run a reptile courier company together so work well as a team

Our Story:

Met 4 years ago in the most romantic place you can imagine L2 in Truro. Haha not!! Our first date was at Kfc another romantic one.. But as cheesey as it sounds it was love at first sight. So far we have had an amazing journey together. Live In a lovely house with our puppy, been on some lovely holidays.  Got engaged last Christmas Day, had absolutely no idea but it was perfect. At the minute we are trying to plan the wedding but as you can imagine things get in the way. I think we deserve this prize because we are a funny outgoing couple who simply love each other and just want that beautiful wedding everyone dreams of. So please pick us!! 

Thank you :)

Our Story:

We have been engaged for 2 years and not yet been able to afford to get married but it's always been my dream! My partner is in the army and not long ago done a tour of Afghanistan. He then proposed to me when he got home. We now have a 10 month old lil girl called Ruby which would make the perfect flower girl! We have just bought our own family home! Family is perfect we just need the perfect wedding now! We have known each other since we was kids so we are like best friends. We deserve this as we have been through a lot of ups and downs with Afghanistan and before he went I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks which destroyed us both. Please give us this chance would mean the world to us both, thank you !!! X
