Here is a snippet of their story, which won the judges over, and resulted in them being selected as Round Two winners, for the Food & Drink Package!


When asked if he fancied me before we started dating, Josh said ‘she’s alright.

I suppose he’d never been a man of many words, so after almost 6 years together he knew he needed to come up with something special to pop the question. He’d planned cocktails and dinner on 21st March, but when the UK was locked down the night before, he had to think on his feet to make it special.

Knowing that I loved doing quizzes to pass the time, he created one based on my favourite singer, Taylor Swift!
I loved this quiz more than most when I found all of the answers were the names of her songs and the first letters spelt ‘will you marry me?’ He saved himself a romantic speech but still had me in tears with my own little Love Story!


Upon finding out Emily & Joshua had won Round Two they said;


“Just wanted to as a massive thanks for your support this year as we started our wedding planning – we still can’t believe we won round one, never mind round 2! Winning has definitely been some light in the darkness that has been 2020. It has got us very much looking forward to 2021 and finalising all the details of our wedding. When we got engaged, we never dreamed we’d be able to get married this quickly, but now we’re well on the way thanks to yourself and the judges at Bespoke Weddings for choosing us!”


Special thanks to the following WVSA Accredited Suppliers for providing prizes.
