"It's amazing," said Tracey, 32. "It's been really hard work collecting the votes, but this makes it all worth it.

"To win our wedding takes away all the stress of saving up, so we can just enjoy planning it all now. We're really looking forward to it."
Electrician Mark, 30, said: "We've had so much support from our friends and family – we wouldn't have won without them. From what I've seen so far, the venue looks fantastic – I'm very impressed."
After some drinks and canapes, the couple were announced as winners at the hotel after competition entrants had been whittled down to the ten couples with the most voting tokens collected from editions of The Post.
Tracey and Mark both went to Lockleaze secondary school, but have only been together for 18 months. They have five children between them – Ceejai, 13; Kye, 10; Isabelle, four; Reuben, three; and their first together, six-month-old Alexis.
The excited kids have been collecting tokens through their schools while Tracey's mum Fay put up posters in St Mary's Church charity shop, Lockleaze, where she works, and even emptied her local newsagent of papers. Meanwhile, Mark's mum Georgina and family were also pulling out the stops and together they mustered a large box of tokens.
Tracey lives in Wotton-under-Edge while Mark lives in Almondsbury, but now the couple are looking forward to organising their dream honeymoon and settling down together without the worry of funding the lavish wedding they will enjoy next October.
Emma Collins and Daniel Thompson came second, while Billie McKeown and James Fritchley were third. Both couples got bubbly, flowers, and a goodie bag, with the other finalists also receiving goodie bags.
Bristol News and Media events manager Mike Coe said: "This is one of the most popular competitions we run and once again we've had a great response. We would like to thank all the prize providers, particularly the Aztec Hotel and Spa, which will provide a fantastic, luxurious setting for Tracey and Mark's special day."
The hotel's wedding co-ordinator, Lauren Manning, said: "We're delighted to be hosting Tracey and Mark's special day. They'll have the chance to work with us to plan their ideal wedding and we look forward to helping them create it."
