Emily James and Michael Bendon were announced as the winning couple at the South Wales Echo & Wales Online's Win a Wedding competition.
The childhood sweethearts have been together more than a decade after meeting in school. They planned to get married in 2020 but jumped at the chance to enter the annual competition run by the South Wales Echo. The couple got engaged in July last year when Michael surprised Emily by dressing their newborn son, Zach, in a top which read: “Mummy, will you marry daddy?”.
The couple will wed in March 2018 and have been given a whole host of things to complete their day, including the wedding venue and decor, a wedding dress, formal suits, a videographer to capture their day, the cake and so much more.

The private event room was also decorated with vintage bunting.
