Couple say ‘I do’ to wedding competition challenge

Published on: Monday, 20-July-2015

Huyton couple Tim and Emma Dwyer proved they were up to the challenge of ‘getting to The Venue on time.’

Tim and Emma were the winners of the ‘Get me to the Venue on time’ competition run by Radio City in partnership with The Venue in Huyton.

The competition – featured on the station’s breakfast show with Leanne and Dave – offered couples the chance to be married at The Venue during a live broadcast of Radio City’s breakfast show. The lucky couple were then treated to memorable daytime and evening receptions.

To be in with a chance of winning, Tim and Emma took part in a number of fun challenges, including a lie detector test and a psychic reading. The day before the wedding, they were sent to ‘secret’ locations and asked to make their way back to Huyton with no money or phones.

Tim used his powers of persuasion to make it back to Huyton from St Paul’s Cathedral in London, with the final leg of the journey involving hitching a ride in a pizza delivery van! Meanwhile Tim thought his bride-to-be had been whisked out of the country and had a nail biting wait to see if she would make it back in time.

After the wedding in front of an invited audience of family and friends, Emma confessed that she had spent the day before her nuptials being pampered at a nearby spa.

The newly-wed Mrs Dwyer said: “It’s been such an amazing experience, and we would like to thank everyone at The Venue and Radio City for making our special day so memorable.”

The Venue is the ideal choice for a wedding - offering anything from a small, intimate gathering or a celebration for up to 280 guests. And with all-inclusive packages starting from just £1,999, couples don’t have to wait to say ‘I do.’

As well as hosting stylish weddings, The Venue stages regular cabaret and tribute evenings and is a popular venue for conferences and business meetings. It’s also home to the Bistro café and bar offering top quality, great value food and drink. For more information visit www.thevenuehuyton.co.uk .
