Devon Teenager Daniel Holden, 19, popped the question to his girlfriend, after hearing they had won a £4,000 wedding.

Alice Johns, 18, said yes and the couple are now busy preparing for their 2014 wedding at St Andrew’s Church, Cullompton, to be followed by a reception at the Cullompton Venue next door.

The couple, who have been together for two years, had talked about getting engaged when they entered a wedding fair prize draw at the Cullompton Venue.

When they won Daniel took action. “As soon as we got home I got down on one knee and asked Alice to marry me,” said Daniel. “But it’s not official yet as I haven’t got the ring. I had been planning to propose on the 19 November as that’s our two year anniversary of being together and I will have the ring by then.”

Daniel works in customer services and Alice is a beauty therapist. They have won a package worth £4,000 which includes a free wedding from St Andrew’s Church, a free reception at the Cullompton Venue and voucher contributions towards the day from local businesses.
