We met at school and we have a one year old baby boy called Archie. We are both 25 and are currently saving for a house so a wedding has been put aside for a while. We have been engaged for 5 years.

Amanda Andrews & Robert Platt Amy Walker & Luis Cascan Longford Nuneaton A friend from work matched Amanda and I as a blind date!

I'd returned home for my birthday celebrations and met James on a night out with friends. We instantly hit it offand have been together ever since. I moved back to Rugby and we now live together with our two children Jaxon and Lincoln, and have baby number three on the way. We'd love the opportunity to win a dream wedding at Coombe Abbey. We often visit there for family days out and it would be amazing to get married there!
We met at the War Memorial Park in Coventry for coffee and a chat, then went for a walk round the park. Two hours later we departed and arranged to meet again a week later, at a local pub in Coventry. After a couple of drinks, chat and laughter we got on very well and arranged to meet again.
Bethan Morgan & Nick Millears Cara Bemrose-Williams & Peter Towers Earl Shilton Eastern Green We spoke online then met at a bus stop, went on a drive to Peterborough and got lost in the villages. We've been together for 4 months -it was love at first sight.

Amanda Watson & Lewis Hartwell Bedworth We met through a friend of mine not long after I came out of a bad relationship and thought I'd never find love again. We've been together for 17 months and I'm currently 5 months pregnant! It was a surprise, but we're over the moon. We had booked our wedding for 27th June this year, but the money we had saved the wedding is now going on baby stuff.
Amy Fallon & Daniel Bentley Location We were introduced through mutual friend at our local shop. I instantly fell for Daniel, and spent the next year trying to win him over. Almost 7 years later we're still together. Daniel is my best friend and partner in crime, I couldn't imagine life without him.
Warwick We met through friends and have been together for 7 years. We have two beautiful kids; a son aged 8 and a daughter aged 6. We have been engaged for 6 years but haven't had the funds to get married -we would love to get married.
Carly Knight & William Houston Finham Carly and I got together at my brother's wedding.
I proposed in Barcelona in June 2014 and booked a wedding in Greece for June 2016, but had to cancel as the wedding budget didn't cater for the big family I have that wanted to attend. I want Carly's Mum to see her only daughter get married and to give her the wedding that she dreams of and we both deserve. This was Joshua's (my step son's) idea -he just wants to wear a suit!
Charlotte Pearsall & Lee Westwood Chelsey Wilson & Geoff Wheeler Aldridge Erdington Me and Lee met through some friends years ago. We added each other to Facebook and sort of forgot about each other. I then joined Plenty of Fish (the dating site) not really looking for anyone, and Lee messaged me saying what are you doing on here. After that we got on Facebook and met up for a drink -it obviously went brilliantly. We've been together for 2 and a half years.
He was my courier and I was his customer. I couldn't take my eyes offhim! I dreamt of being with him and all the girls used to laugh when he came in the office and I went bright red! He rescued me from my past and has been my rock ever since. I cannot wait to marry the man of my dreams!
Chloe Gouldie & Daniel Westlake Christine Domville & Carl Richards Coventry Nuneaton Daniel and I met at a works Christmas party at the Ricoh with a lot of wine involved!

We met at Nuneaton railway station back in February 2013 and have been together for a little over 2 years. We had an unlucky year in 2014 when Christine was diagnosed with epilepsy. We are really hoping 2015 is a better year for us.
Claire Pritchard & Jason Barrett Claire Littlewood & Richard Merrall Holbrooks Barrow Close We met while I was doing my weekly shopping in Tesco as Jason works there. I knew I just had to marry this man, I couldn't wait to see him and made regular shopping trips just to see him. Luckily enough he felt the same. I already had 2 children and Jason has a son and now together we have our beautiful daughter who is now 6 months old. Winning this competition would make ours and our childrens dreams come true.
Rich was my first love at the age of 18. We went our separate ways, both going on to marry and have children, but we ended up getting back together almost 20 years later. We recently got engaged on New Year's Eve at sunset on the beach in Cape Verde.
Chloe Warden & Glen Baynham Stoke Heath Glen's way of flirting with me was to screw pieces of paper up and throw them at me across the room. One day he took my notepad from my desk without me knowing and wrote his number in it; I only noticed he had it when he put it back. I then found his number written with love hearts and stars around it. I texted Glen saying 'Here's my number' and he texted back saying 'So call me maybe'. Our first kiss was at Coombe Abbey when we were walking the dog together.
Claire Wibberley & Darren Martin Wyken Me and Darren have been together 9 months and we met at my local, he was working on the doors as a doorman. The attraction hit straight away. He proposed just before Christmas 2014 and our wedding date is booked for the 8th August. Darren is 22 and I'm 37 we spend most of our time at the gym working out together, we are not just partners we're best friends.
Danielle Taylor & Craig Sweet Atherstone We met on a Saturday afternoon in a pub that we'd never normally go in, 5 years ago. Despite our 8 year age gap, we've been inseparable ever since, so I guess you could say it was our destiny to be together. To top our fairytale offwe now have 2 amazing kids together too.
Danielle Gordon-Stuart & Steven Marsh Danielle Cronin & Paul Jones Coventry Bedworth We went to Primary and Secondary School together I knew who he was but never spoke to him. After leaving school I started working in a pub where he drank and we started talking and ended up together. 8 years later I love him very much and I want to spend the rest of my life with him. We have a loving family home with our beautiful little girl. We have been engaged for five years, but we have not got married as we are saving to buy our own home.
We met on holiday, love at first sight. We've been together for 4 years. We have a 2 year old son called Taylor. We live together in Bedworth; Paul relocated from St Helens down here so we could start a family. I moved from my family home in Bulkington. Paul is a truck driver and I'm a stay at home mum. We also have a Jackchi called Pixie. We've been engaged since September 2014 and can't wait to get married!
Danielle Easton & James O'Brien Demi-Leigh Arrowsmith & Luke Bell Bedworth Binley We knew of each other during school, then met on a social night with friends a few years later and things developed from there. We have now been together for 4 years, got engaged at Reading Festival and have a child together with our first family home recently purchased.
We met at school and have been close friends for about 7 years. We've been togther for 3 years in March -we haven't been engaged very long. We're best friends as well as lovers.
Danielle Watts & Zac Fotheringham Coventry Me and Zac were set up on a blind date by our best friend and have never looked back. We have now been together for 3 years and I was lucky enough for him to get down on one knee last June when we were on holiday in Turkey. I still have butterflies now!
Donna Tully & Mark Mcintosh Willenhall Together for 4 years, we had seen each other previously in a pub, although we didn't realise this until we got together and spoke about that night. When he mentioned wearing a Kappa T-Shirt I realised I'd seen him before, as I remember thinking "Kappa? So 90's!!" Donna Sharman & Lee Bailey Elizabeth Parker & Clayton Emms Coventry Tile Hill Met my soul mate on Facebook 3 years 3 months ago and on Valentine's Day just gone we got engaged. He is my everything, he is my strength. We've been through so much; we've both been married before but now our life is complete since we found each other. Now it's our time. I love him more than the stars.
Lee was a regular in the flower shop where I worked, I always had to ask my colleagues to serve him as i felt embarrassed but one night i met him in Jumping Jacks and after a bit of Dutch courage here we are still together 13 years later.
Emma Harris & Mark Shannon Emma Shilliday & Dean Pugh Walsgrave Warwick We knew each other as kids, then bumped back into each other in 2012 and remained friends. In this time I became pregnant but did not remain with the dad; Dean supported me with the pregnancy and we grew close. He asked me to be with him and wanted to be a dad to my little girl. I gave birth in 2013 -he cut her cord and thinks of her as his own. He proposed in June 2014 and we have been saving to get married ever since; to me he is an amazing man and I love him so much.
Mark & I met in 1994, when I was dating his brother-in-law. After both of our marriages ended we met up after losing contact. Now after nearly 5 years and 2 more children (which makes 7 between us) we'd like to get married.
Emma Weedon & Richard Lewis Emma Tremayne & Matthew Thomas Great Barr Coventry We met online and got chatting.
We met 11 years ago and Matt lived next door but one to my best friend. He is now my best friend and soul mate. We have been through a lot together and came out the other end stronger.
About a week later we had our first date in 2010 at our local cinema. We got engaged in London at the Charing Cross Hotel where I had treated her to a weekend in London for her birthday to see everything she had always wanted to see of British Heritage.
Emma Chapman & Carl Jones Emma Stroud & Mark Bagshaw Tile Cross Erdington Myself and Emma have been together for 9 years.
We've been together 15 years this year. We bought our first house together in 2004 and had our first son in 2008 followed by another boy in 2009. We both work very hard to give our children everything they need. We got engaged in 2012, however we cannot afford to get married and have just found out we're expecting again. We are a strong loving family and being able to have our wedding would complete the jigsaw puzzle.
We have two children, Jack is 6 and Annie is 15 months. We would love to get married but would never be able to afford it at the moment.
Faye Turner & Kyle Edwards Faye Williamson & Robert Hancock Stockingford Green Lane We met 10 years ago at school -it was love at first sight. We have been together ever since and got engaged on Faye's birthday on the beach. We are true high school sweethearts.
We met 20 years ago but finally got together 2 years ago after meeting again in a Coventry pub. I have children with disabilities and Robert has taken to the kids' needs brilliantly and is a great role model and step father. He is my soul mate and I love him to bits.
Emily Smith & Ryan Walsh Meriden We met on a Thursday night in October 2011 in bar in Sutton Coldfield. It was a blind date arranged by 2 of our friends and the rest is history as they say. We now have a young son of 20 months called Jude who is our world.
Emma Garthwaite & Matthew Secomb Hinckley Matt and I have been together for 8 years and he is my knight in shining armour. I never thought the day I was proposed to would come. Matt had asked my Dad's permission and this meant so much to me. He asked me in Dublin in the church restaurant on 15th February. I 40 in October and would love to be married for the first ever time before then. My daughter dreamed this would happen and it has. I would love our dreams to keep coming true.

Gemma Mason & Phil Sheepy Keresley We met about 19 years ago when I moved in two doors away from Phill! We became good friends and even though I moved house we stayed in contact. Then 5 years ago we went on our first date! And 2 years ago we moved in together! Phill popped the question in August just gone! :) Gemma Baylis & Peter Jones Gemma Crampton & Dean Bonner Newbold Halesowen We met through work and it all started by staring over PC screens. We then bit the bullet and got a bottle of wine in with a movie and after that first "date" neither of us looked back as we both knew that we were both the one person we'd each waited for.
We met online 20 months ago. As soon as we met we both knew this time it was different. We moved in together after 6 months and got engaged 9 months later. The picture is at a family friend's Coombe Abbey wedding last year.

We enjoy travelling, going to gigs and comedy gigs. We're both living at home at the moment and starting to save for our own place. Richard proposed to me November last year. The proposal lasted 18 months!
We met 10 years ago on the internet but to be honest we know each other since High School. My boyfriend proposed to me in Mexico in front of 700 people. It was so romantic and emotional. I was in tears and he was too. It was the best day of my life and I am still so happy.
Hazel Conroy & George Wilks Helen Nath & Ian Killeen Wyken Bedworth George and I met over 14 years ago; I was 24 and he was 18. We've got two gorgeous children but we've never even been engaged as money has always been tight. We have talked about getting married for so long but just never had the money as something else always came up. This would totally be a dream come true for both of us and would be a wonderful opportunity to complete our family.
I met Ian and fell in love in the ice cream aisle of Bedworth Tesco on June 1st 2013. A few months later I was pregnant after never thinking I could have children, and in August 2014 we got engaged. This was my Mum's last wish for me before passing last year.

We`ve been through a lot of highs and lows since being together -we recently lost our 1 year old daughter, but everything we have been through has made us stronger and that to me is true love.
Helen Shillito & Mathew Shillito Burbage We got engaged after 11 Weeks and had a baby 8 months later. Mathew was out in Afghanistan serving during my pregnancy.

Jean Standley & James Goodman Yardley Wood We met nearly 10 years ago at a party. It was the age old cliche of "my friend likes your friend" but we ended up together! People didn't think we'd last but we have! He finally popped the question this year and I can't wait to become his wife.
Jen Hendry & Neil Hartwell Jennifer Kemp & Jack Cheetham Hinckley Kings Norton I'd recently split up from a guy and ranted on Facebook that men weren't honest. Neil asked if I'd been dumped -we chatted and went out a few times and got on so well that I gave up my home in Nottingham to move in with him in Hinckley. We went to Egypt and he took me to a jewellery shop and out of the blue said I didn't want a cheap ring as an engagement ring, so Egypt is special to us. We've argued only once in nearly two years and I couldn't imagine life without him.
We met when we went camping aged 13 and have been together now for 12 years, even though we live 90 miles apart. We have been engaged for 4 years and are finally buying our first house together. Who says childhood sweetheart, holiday romance and long distance relationship can't work? We're still as madly in love now as when we were teenagers :-D Jessica Swanson & Craig Turner Jessica Hudleston & Gareth Thomas Stivichall Binley We met when Craig was 15 and I was 16. We used to talk and I always had a softspot for him. He would come in the shop where I worked. We then re-met on social media and got engaged on his 30th birthday. We have 3 children between us and had the heart ache of losing a baby last year. We can't wait to be husband and wife and this would put the icing on the cake to have our dream wedding. I actually found an old picture of him the other day from when we were kids -it's definitely fate!
We met at work, shy at first but then turned into an amazing perfect relationship. We always make each other laugh whilst making the other feel loved and special. The bride's family are not going to be a part of it but we love each other so much that it doesn't matter Joanne Vernon & James Taylor Judy Godsall & Shane Quelch Bedworth Birmingham We grew up together on the Isle of Wight until I moved to Birmingham. I went to see a mate in 1996 and Shane was there -it was love at first sight again! We had a short romantic week until I had to come back home, and we lost contact until Shane found me on Facebook in 2014 and we got back together. We're now engaged and love feels like 1996 for both of us. He's moving up in May, leaving the Isle of Wight and his job to be with me. Winning our dream wedding will fullfil our life.
We met at work at George Eliot Hospital -he smacked my bottom! We have been together for 10 years and have 4 kids. Our son died at birth -we've had so many ups and downs and are still going strong, but getting married would complete us.
Julie Hands & Dave Mitchell Karen Jones & Edwin Takavesi Leamington Spa Hall Green We met 20 years ago and dated for a year, but we were young and went seperate ways. We met again 10 years later and have been back together for 8 years. I proposed on the leap year on 2008 and we have since had two wonderful boys, but my dream would be to get married on the leap year in 2016 if we could afford it.

Karen Tidman & Steven Edwards Katherine Bayley & Blake Nicholas Bedworth Coventry We met on a night out in Birmingham in the year 2000. I instantly knew that he was the one, but we both had not long been out of serious relationships so we both decided to date for one day a week, this continued for 11 years until 2011! Steven moved in with me, we are blissfully happy together and would love to get married but unfortunately money is an issue. We would love to win a dream wedding.
We met through a friend and a week later we were together. 18 months on we live together in Coventry.
Jessica Davies & Daryl Copleston-Jobling Binley Woods I work for Parcelforce in a customer service admin role and my now-fiancee was a customer.

Karen York & Tony Faulkner Lilbourne Tony and I have known each other forever -we grew up in the same village but I was a couple of years older than him.

Katie Hession & Andrew Gaynor Katie Thomas & Andrew Gadsby Chelmsley Wood Nuneaton It started from nowehere back in Feb 2012.

We're currently saving for our dream wedding but the pot is empty! We love each other dearly and want to show the world.
Kelly Ones & Darren Robinson Kerry Moore & Kieron Adams Keresley Holbrooks We defied the odds and are an online dating success story!
