Echo win a wedding competition

Echo win a wedding competition: Now you can make their dreams come true

THE judges have spoken and the final nine couples for your Echo’s Win a Wedding competition, in association with Park Inn, Southend, have been chosen. Now it’s over to you to select the couple who will win a £12,000 wedding.

Call the number given with each case study if you want that couple to win.

Kayleigh Middleton and Bill Lawrence, both 23, had been saving up for their wedding when Kayleigh fell pregnant.

Their attentions quickly switched from saving for the wedding to providing for their baby but they are now hopeful of still having their dream day.

Bill proposed when the Wickford couple were on holiday in July 2013 but just a few months later, in December, Kayleigh fell pregnant with their son being born last August.

She said: “Getting married would make us a proper little family.”

Bill, a trainee surveyor, and Kayleigh, a carer for disabled children, first met outside a nightclub nearly four years ago and are now looking for a place to buy in Wickford.

Kayleigh added: “We have been looking to move for around a year.

“If we won then the money have from not having to save for a wedding and a house, could all go into one thing and it would make us so happy.”

Kirstie Hayward and Codey Lime first met at the beach in Leigh when they were teenagers, and now just a few years later they are hoping to get married.

The couple live together in Leigh but, like many others, are struggling to scrape together enough cash for a deposit on a house.

Kirstie, 20, has been working as a relief manager at Havens Hospice for eight months while Codey works for a car company.

They have been saving for a wedding since they got engaged two years ago but their target still seems a long way off.

Kirstie said: “Trying to save for both a house deposit and a wedding just isn’t possible at the minute, it doesn’t work.

“We have looked at a few places that we would be interested in having the wedding but it would take another couple of years to save up for them – even just with the basic packages.”

Dan Lovegrove feels getting married to his fiancée Ashleigh Monksfield would complete his life.

The couple already live together in their own home in Rayleigh with their 18-month-old son Kellan and another they have another baby on the way.

Dan, 28, now wants to complete their family by getting married to Ashleigh, 25.

He said: “I entered the competition initially and didn’t think we’d get anywhere near winning it – but I guess someone has to.

“We have been together for nearly five years now, have one boy and have another on the way, so the wedding would be the perfect way to our lives and our family.

“We’ve looked at other places to hold the wedding and were thinking about maybe doing it in 2017, but winning this would be amazing and mean that money could go on providing for our children.”

Graeme Gibney and Rebecca Moran moved into their first home together, in Wickford, last April, and are looking to cap off the year by getting married.

The couple have been together for more than four years Rebecca said: “It means the world for us to be getting married.

“We are quite young so it would be a massive benefit for us, to not have to worry about the financial burden of a wedding.

“We have both come from very secure families, both our parents are still together, and it has always been a life-long dream for me to get married.

“The location would be great as well, we have very big families so to have somewhere with accommodation would really help us out.

“Getting to see the place made it all more real as well, I’d never been to the hotel before but it was so beautiful, I’d love to get married there.”

Sam Harding, 22, would like nothing more than for her two-year-old son Toby-Jay to walk her down the aisle at her dream wedding.

Toby-Jay suffers from the rare genetic condition tuberous sclerosis, a condition that means he suffers around 50 fits a day and rarely sleeps.

His development is also slowed and while he cannot quite walk yet, his mum Sam cannot wait for Toby-Jay to walk her down the aisle to meet his step dad Graeme Segrave, 27.

Sam said: “We have so much going on with our day to day life that it would be nice to have a happy day.

“I don’t have any parents so to have my son walk me down the aisle would be amazing.

“Graeme is his step-dad, but he calls him daddy.

“Toby-Jay is in and out of hospital every other week and I always have to be there to give consent, so it would be great for Graeme to be officially his dad and be able to be a part of things.”

At the ESPYs red carpet, it's a mix of bling, sweat and cheers

So much of life is plain ugly (cell towers made to look like trees) or vaporous (Masahiro Tanaka's elbow, or that little Italian village I just purchased on eBay).

But then you run across something genuine and serene. Yes, it's the ESPYs I'm talking about.

I'd rather pass a gallstone than wear a full suit in 90-degree heat, yet here I am on the red carpet at ESPN's annual awards show Wednesday night at the Nokia Theatre.

Look, there goes Russell Westbrook in baby blue pajama tops.

Maria Sharapova, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Over there, Marcedes Lewis is wearing a kilt/skirt/pantaloon combo (no, you can't get these at Target).

And here comes Kevin Durant in a shade of green usually found only in Jell-O or chem labs. Hey Kev, were they out of cheetah?

The 49ers' Stevie Johnson is wearing glitter shoes and so many necklaces it looks like chain mail.

At the ESPYs, bling is the new black.

When did athletes start dressing like Elton John and Lady Gaga? And what would Ted Williams say?

Oh. there's Russell Wilson in a tie and conservative dark suit. What does he think he is, an adult?

Pay attention, Joan Rivers, and I'll show you how to handle a real red carpet.

Me: "Who are you wearing?"

Jermaine Jones: "John Ford."

Me, I'm wearing Chevy.

First impressions? This red carpet is moving slower than an Idina Menzel national anthem.

If you've never been, what happens on these red carpets is this: The participants step directly off their MTA bus -- or whatever they drive -- and enter a tent, where security wands them. The ones who don't pass get to go down the red carpet.

Soon, they pipeline into a crush of stars and publicists and are wearing a sheen seen only in Turtle Wax commercials. Along the way, they stop at various booths, where TV types (who strangely never sweat) ask them about their clothes, careers and upcoming movies.

Then they stop for more photos and interviews. The ones who don't pass out in a puddle of their own gravy are allowed into the Nokia for the show.

A red carpet in July is much like the two-a-days you used to have in high school. Not everybody makes it. Women have given birth in the time it takes to walk this gauntlet.

cCommentsGot something to say? Start the conversation and be the first to comment.ADD A COMMENT0An hour in, I look like the night manager at an iHop in Short Pump, Va. Maria Sharapova either sneaked by me or melted directly into the ESPYs red carpet.

My own winners Wednesday night:

-- Most legendary: Jim Brown

-- Best reception: Members of the U.S. soccer team.

-- Sexiest: Pro surfer Hannah Cornett.

-- Blingiest: Stevie Johnson.

-- Weirdest: Floyd Mayweather Jr.

-- Coolest doctor: Julius Erving.

-- Best moment: When Jim Brown hugged Michael Sam.

-- Best line by TV host Drake: "If CenturyLink Field got any louder, Westbrook would be wearing it."

Yeah, sure it can be unsettling how much we deify these athletes, but they always seem willing to make a mockery of themselves, don't they?

And I don't mean that in a mean-spirited way, only that they take themselves less seriously than the fans often do. Maybe that's a relief.

Really, what these awards salute is ESPN's trademark irreverence. Last thing I'd want is a 24-7 sports network that treated everything as if it were "60 Minutes."

What's left to say about all this? It's a divine excess, really, this giving of awards to people who already are among the most-rewarded people on the planet. The new royalty. We used to have war heroes, and now we have sports stars.

If it all seems specious and vainglorious, so be it. In the end, they're just ballers. If they're overcompensated and a little too worshiped, that's our fault more than theirs.

So give them their night. The ESPYs – now in their 22nd year – have become sports' Tower of Babel.
