Bride competition winners enjoy wedding film cinema screening
19 Oct 2018
Bride and Showcase Cinemas teamed up earlier this year to grant one lucky couple a wedding prize to be remembered; here, we share the winners' story
Lizzie and Dave Boughen tied the knot on 28th July 2018 and the happy couple were lucky enough to have their wedding day filmed for free, thanks to a competition they entered on bridemagazine.co.uk.
Lizzie, a primary school teacher from Manchester, said: “We really wanted a videographer at our wedding, so when I saw the competition I knew it was meant to be."
And Lizzie struck lucky, scooping the videography prize for the big day at Our Lady and St Edward's Catholic Church in Preston which was followed by a reception held at Browsholme Hall.
Not only did Lizzie and Dave win their wedding film, but they also got to relive their special day at Showcase Cinema de Lux Leeds where a private screening had been arranged.
The couple were treated to a VIP experience with a champagne reception and popcorn confetti, before watching their nuptials back on the big screen from the comfort of the cinema chain's luxurious reclining seats.
Commenting on the experience, Lizzie said: “Watching ourselves on the big screen was strange to begin with, but as the film went on we got used to it – next stop, Hollywood. We’d like to thank Showcase for helping us remember our special day in such style, we’ll definitely be back to catch a movie soon."
Mark Barlow, UK general manager for Showcase Cinema, said: “We’re delighted to have played a part in celebrating Lizzie and Dave’s special day and that we could give them the opportunity to relive it in one of our cinemas. Our team have loved hosting the new Mr and Mrs Boughen in Leeds, and we’d all like to wish them a lifetime of happiness.”
