  • Bespoke Competition Winners at Normanton Park


Jon & Julie were selected as the Bespoke Competition Winners at Normanton Park, their prize included Venue Hire and a Food & Drinks Package! After being selected to win the Venue Hire at Normanton Park as part of Round One of the Bespoke Competition Jon & Julie were required to write a story of their background for the chance to win further prizes!

Here is a snippet of their story which helped them Win Round Two, their Food & Drink Package;

Having just come out of a bad, 5-year relationship, on my 23rd birthday night out with friends I said: “I am NOT meeting a guy in a bar!” The first bar we went in..My friend shouted she could see her single cousin and I was literally yanking my hand from hers saying I absolutely did NOT want to meet him or any man that evening!

She managed to introduce us… 5 years, 3 house moves and 2 beautiful boys later, He took me to my favourite beach in Cornwall on a big group family holiday (they were all in on it!) and proposed!

Upon finding out they had won Round Two of the Competition, Julie said;

“Jon and I cannot even begin to thank you all enough, for not only choosing us to win round 1 in the first place and be able to book such a gorgeous venue, but to win round 2 as well is more than we could have hoped for !!! It has absolutely made our year getting that news, and made a wedding like this actually possible for us.
Our wedding has changed from my original planned a small ceremony somewhere and party in my garden with 30 guests maximum, to a proper wedding in a stunning venue with the view of Rutland water. This now includes all of our extended families and friends, well over 100 guests!
We are so excited and eternally grateful for the day we are going to have. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH ( especially Maria who has been helping us plan our day, she is the best !!! ) All our love! X “
