Engaged and loved up!
Congratulations to Dr Thomas Robert Kerr and Miss Helen Frances Williamson for winning my competition for a free wedding ceremony.

They're getting married on 27 June 2015 in Ballyscullion Park, Bellaghy in County Londonderry exactly a year and a day since the loved up couple met.
Ballyscullion Park, Bellaghy

They crossed paths at Queen's University in Belfast where Thomas was working as a Research Archaeologist and Helen was doing a Post Graduate Diploma in Pain Management. 

They said: 'We quickly realised we were both on the same dating site and chatted online for a short time before deciding to meet in person. We had a lunchtime coffee one day and have been together nearly every day since then.'

Relaxing after the happy news
Thomas proposed just before Christmas on 22 December 2014 with Helen's niece, Jessica, looking on in panic because he had, very romantically, hidden the engagement ring in Helen's favorite food - a strawberry!

Helen had chosen her ring which was being sized, so she knew it was coming, but didn't expect it before the festive season.

It was the best Christmas present she could have wished for - apart from Thomas, himself, of course!

Helen said: 'We were absolutely thrilled when Lisa phoned us on Valentines' Day to tell us we had won the competition. It made the day extra special and we can't wait to exchange our vows during a really bespoke ceremony and in such a beautiful setting.'
