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!

James & Katie

Christmas day 2011, heavily pregnant with our fourth child and ready to drop, (Ethan arrived the beginning of January 2012).

James gave me a big box to open and inside was another small box.

James was behind me on one knee saying will you marry me, I was all emotional and the older kids Grace, Noel and Lily all excited shouting say yes, (obviously I did).

So the planning started however not long after Ethan, I fell pregnant again, so the wedding went on hold, sadly we lost our baby 16 weeks in.

I fell pregnant again and Rubi was born May 2013!

With 5 children now family life took over and wedding plans were firmly on the back foot.

All the kids now getting older we finally started planning again and here we are with a date (28th march 2020) that we are all counting down to, the day we finally become Mr and Mrs Wilson, its been a long and eventful wait but it is set and happening!


Upon finding out James & Katie had won Round Two they said;


“”Winning round one made it possible,
Winning round two was phenomenal.
We thank every one at Bespoke Weddings and the Valley Hotel for making our dream wedding come true.
We also hope everyone else has the fairy tale wedding they dream of.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
You have given us what feels like the world.
28th March we say I Do but today, it’s thank you.”ūü•į
