THE Adver’s Win Your Wedding couple Daniel Harper and Leanne Warner spent an afternoon at the Marriott Hotel yesterday to try out the food for the big day.
The couple, of Pasteur Drive, were crowned winners of the £10,000 wedding package competition in September after forking out £3,575 to buy more than 5,500 newspapers in an effort to swing the votes in their favour.
Things have moved quickly for the couple, who met six years ago through colleagues at a private hire taxi company, and although there is still five months before the big day in August, everything has already been organised.
Leanne, 25, said: “Everything apart from the food had been organised, even the honeymoon. I can’t believe how organised everything is for the most unorganised people ever.”
The couple, who have two children together, Charlie, three, and Alfie, two, and Shannon, nine, who is Daniel’s daughter from a previous relationship, tested out three diferent choices in three different courses for the wedding.
The choice included chicken soup, ham hock terrine, or tomato and mozzarella salad to start, followed by pork loin, rump Welsh lamb or Meditteranean vegetable lasagne for main course and a mini trio of lemon cheesecake, chocolate tort, raspberry mousse or a fresh fruit salad to finish.
Leanne said: “I am very tempted by the lamb. Normally I prefer pork but the lamb was so delicious and tender that I might have to have that.”
