Young couple score dream wedding at Spurs!

Posted on 6 May 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

A young couple have won a fabulous wedding that most of us can only dream of!

21-year-old Catherine Jackson, who lives in south Wales whilst studying English Literature at Glamorgan University, entered a competition in Britain's biggest selling wedding magazine 'You & Your Wedding' to win not only a wedding but also a dream honeymoon, courtesy of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and their main sponsors Thomson Holidays.

Tottenham Hotspur's Welsh footballer of the year Simon Davies, presented Catherine and her fiancé Stewart Twidle, with a cheque for £12,500.

Despite never having won a competition before, Catherine jumped at the chance to enter, as both she and Stewart are lifelong Spurs fans. They had already discussed staging the wedding at Tottenham's White Hart Lane ground as the facilities are ideal for weddings, events and conferences, for up to 600 guests.

Catherine and Stewart, who are originally from the Medway area in Kent, have been together for three years and are now busy planning their wedding for August this year.

Their families and friends will watch the happy couple follow in the footsteps of their hero's as in true football tradition, they will walk down the players tunnel and get married at the side of the pitch!

Both Catherine and Stewart were overjoyed at their prize: "It's a dream come true to be able to combine our love of each other with our love of Spurs!"
