Joanne speaking to reporters said: “Finding out we had won was incredible, at first I just couldn’t believe it.

“We had so much fun taking part in the competition, getting our friends and family involved.

“I am overwhelmed to be able to say I am getting married at the Old Course Hotel next year, it’s not something I ever expected to happen to us.”

Brian added: “Some of the challenges our friends and family voted for us to take part in were crazy.

“My first was to experience what it was like to be a bride – this meant everything from waxing to a bridal dress fitting.

“I went with my Dad for the fitting and we had a right laugh, so did all my friends.

“Joanne was challenged to face her fear of animals and this involved an extremely fun day at the St Andrews Aquarium.”

The prize includes a five-star reception and honeymoon, a bridal gown and three bridesmaid dresses, photography and flowers.
