A LOVED-up Solihull couple will have their dream wedding after winning a national competition.

The catch is they will be holding it in front of hundreds of people!

Lucky duo Hayley Oakley and Garry Drew will be tieing the knot after becoming the National Wedding Show’s bride and groom.

The prize for the 25-year-olds will include a star-studded wedding, with TV stars Jackie and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen introducing the blessing live on the catwalk.

Hayley and Garry will both look picture perfect thanks to fashion guru Caryn Franklin, with the bride being given a dream wedding dress courtesy of a top UK designer.

Additionally, every aspect of the ceremony from cakes to rings will be covered by organisers of the show, as well as a honeymoon for the fortunate couple.

Hayley and Garry have been together for four-and-a-half years after meeting through Garry’s twin sister, who worked with Hayley.

On what was meant to be their third date, Hayley was rushed to hospital where she underwent emergency surgery for an 18cm ovarian cyst.

Garry stayed at her bedside - even though they had only known each other for a week.

“It means the world to us, I get to marry my best friend and soul mate in October,” said Hayley.

“I can’t quite put into words how this has made us feel.”

The pair will appear at the National Wedding Show in Earls Court on October 3.
