Better get planning! Couple win £6k wedding

Dudley | | Published:

A couple have been crowned winners of a Black Country win a wedding competition after receiving more than 25,000 votes from the public.

Natalie Davies, aged 30 of Pensnett, and Chris Williams, 27 of Wednesbury, beat three other finalists to win the white wedding package, which is worth £6,000.

They will now start planning to get married in the historic and newly-renovated Grade-II listed Lye and Wollescote Chapels, near Stourbridge, which have been renamed the Thomas Robinson Building. The chapels have undergone a £1.2m restoration and will become the registration office for civil ceremonies.

Customer service advisor Natalie and warehouse worker Chris couldn't believe their luck after Dudley mayor Steve Waltho announced their names at the chapel on Thursday. Natalie said: "I can't believe it, it's absolutely amazing. It's incredible, I never thought we would win.

"I can't believe people of Dudley have voted for us, we are so grateful we can't really put it into words, I cannot thank everyone enough. for voting for us. I've took a lot of inspiration from my grandmother and grandad, who were married 55 years. Unfortunately grandad died last year, but for us to win this it's almost like he was looking down on us as a lucky charm."

Natalie has had health issues, and said Chris has 'changed her life' by helping her to overcome anorexia.

Now, on April 2, they will be driven in a 1933 Rolls Royce to the wedding as part of the package, which also includes a wedding breakfast for 40 guests at The Copthorne Hotel, Brierley Hill, a makeover for the bride and a wedding gown worth £1,000.

Chris said: "It still doesn't feel real at all, but we best get planning."
