CHILDREN, parents and staff from Selworthy School in Taunton were among he VIPs at the wedding of James Holgate and Emily Sparks today.

The Taunton couple won our £22,500 Win Your Wedding competition, run in association with Taunton School and Buff Urban Day Spa.

A ceremony in the Old Library at Taunton School was followed by a blessing in the chapel where supporters from Selworthy School, the workplace of bride and groom, gave them a rousing reception.

They are enjoying a day where competition sponsors have provided every element, from the rings to the fireworks.
