Our Top 3 Couples & results

Couple 1 - Kay Butler & Sara Goldsmith - 36.8%

I believe my partner deserves this, she does not know I am entering us for this. She is the kindest person on earth and has had a lot of heartache she has lost both her parents and put her life on hold and nursed her mother through cancer. She is one of life's givers, she feeds the homeless and puts everyone before herself. We plan to marry and have been engaged since 2017 but with putting our life and soul and every penny into our business we have just not had the funds, she even lost her engagement ring and we've not been able to afford to replace it. So this would truly mean the world to us both to be considered for this awesome prize.

Here's their chat with Mark to get to know them.

Couple 2 - Leah Clark & Andrew Vallance - 38.3%

We deserve this are we are 2 of the same we are soulmates destined to be together. We may not be each other’s firsts but will a million percent be each other’s lasts. This blended family is perfect. We got engaged a week ago today on my 44th birthday and I can’t wait to become his wife. I haven’t been engaged before but he has come along and swept me clean off my feet and we want to marry as soon as possible. Financially this could be a long way off for ourselves. When we announced our engagement I was overwhelmed with the amount of lovely well wishes we have received. Our children, our family and friends are right behind us and can see we have something special and worth the long wait. We wish we had met each other much soon but we were different people then.

Couple 3 - Sophie Jefferies & Dominic Yates - 24.9%

We have been together for just over a year, having met on Tinder in 2019. We have faced a lot of challenges as a couple, namely financial difficulties, but are finally coming out the other side. We both grew up around Bournemouth & Poole, and he has three children who live nearby. Both of us are quirky individuals who compliment each other perfectly. I fell in love with his loving & caring nature & he fell for my crazy personality.  In the next few years we hope to start a family of our own, but wish to follow tradition & get married first. This started with him proposing to me at the site of our first date on our first anniversary. Winning the Hot Wedding would allow us to celebrate our marriage with our loved ones without any worries. It would be an amazing start to our future as husband & wife.
