The Winning Couple of the Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel & Spa ‘Win A Wedding’ Competition 2017 worth thousands of pounds has been announced!
The team at Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel & Spa are giving away a wedding! The team meet so many couples throughout the year who dream of getting married, but when presented with the costs are not always able to afford it straight away.
When the opportunity presented itself to give away this prize the team thought why not?! It really is a fantastic prize and it is believed that is unique to Bryn Meadows, it is not something other venues in the area have been able to do. This has been supported by Pritchard & Moore, a boutique bridal shop based in Whitchurch Cardiff. Pritchard & Moore have a large selection of pre-loved and brand new wedding dresses, and alongside offering a luxurious experience all of their profits go directly to Cancer Research Wales.

“We have had fantastic support in our first year with more than 200 dresses sold to Pritchard & Moore brides. Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel & Spa have generously donated this fantastic prize to help celebrate our first anniversary and a local business sponsor has paid for the dress. We are delighted to be able to help Kerry and Jamie celebrate their special day in style.” Alison George, Pritchard & Moore Manager.

Couples were asked to submit their fairy-tale stories which included romantic proposal gestures, unconventional introductions and long lost loves being reunited. Lovebirds Kerry and Jamie along with Marisa and Adam were selected as the finalists and were invited to Pritchard and Moore’s 1st anniversary celebration on Thursday 27th July. Katrina Rohman from Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel & Spa had the honour of announcing the winning couple in front of a crowded room.
“It was my absolute delight to announce the winning couple at Pritchard and Moore’s anniversary celebrations. It was also extremely nerve wracking as I knew that I would have to say no to the other couple – if only we could have given them both the prize! The wedding team had an extremely hard job picking a winner from all of the different and interesting stories. We have a great reputation for weddings having been nominated and shortlisted over the last five years as ‘Best Venue’ in our region at the Welsh National Wedding Awards.” Katrina Rohman, Sales & Marketing Assistant Manager, Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel & Spa.

Jamie & Kerry
Kerry and Jamie met in 2011 shortly after Kerry moved to South Wales from Chester. Jamie was the one who plucked up the courage and asked Kerry out on a date, but she was reluctant at first as she had recently ended a relationship. After working his charm on her, she agreed and the couple went to a comedy club. They have had some hard times recently, which the couple find difficult to talk openly about, and are currently saving a deposit to buy their first home together.
