LOUISE Lyons whooped for joy after discovering that she and her fiancé, Louis Nel, both of Howick, are the second finalists in The Witness Win a Wedding competition.

The couple were selected from the SMS competition line entries, and could be the winners of a wedding for 100 people at Shalwyn wedding and conference venue in the Tala Valley.

The winning couple will receive a variety of prizes.

There will be a three-course dinner and canapés sponsored by Hamblin’s Catering.

Then there are gown and suit hire from Belle and Bravado, hair and make-up by Craik Spears, photography by Paul Henman, and a video of that special day by Softlight Media.

A wonderful honeymoon is laid on, which includes game drives at The Windmills in Nottingham Road.
