A lucky couple are celebrating after they won their entire wedding for free.

Victoria Andrews and Daniel Handley from Chichester, scooped up the prize in a Win A Wedding competition.

The prize is a wedding worth more than £12,000.

Victoria and Daniel were among three randomly generated finalists who spent the day battling it out in wedding-themed mini games at the Weald and Downland Museum, in West Dean, near Chichester.

The games including cupcake stacking and toss the bouquet was the final stage of the competition, where the winning pair would be rewarded with a “dream” wedding package.

“It has been such a lovely day we have had so much fun,” said Victoria.

The couple were shocked and overjoyed to be the winners, and said they were planning on inviting the runners-up to their big day.


Victoria said: “Everyone is so kind and so nice and we will be inviting our fellow contestants to the wedding.”

Daniel and Victoria now have one more big decision to make.

Daniel said: “We had one date in mind and now we have to go and sit and think what will work the best now.”

Ian Crouch, programme controller at V2 Radio, said: “It has been tremendous fun today and to be able to see the smiles from Victoria and Daniel, really brings it home that this is what proper local radio is all about."

The radio station, based in Chichester, has teamed up with other local businesses to create the dream wedding for the winner.

Working together, they have organised everything from the hen and stag do, to a wedding cake, catering and wedding favours.

For her hen do, Victoria has won a tour and wine tasting for up to eight people at Ashling Park Estate.

Meanwhile, Daniel’s stag will be a raceday at Fontwell Park.

The wedding itself will take place at the Weald and Downland Museum’s very own venue.
