IT’S known as the wedding version of Come Dine With Me.

Four brides go to each other’s weddings and secretly score them – complete with catty comments – with the winner getting a luxury honeymoon.

But Holly Foxcroft-Boyd and Kieran Boyd are hopeful they will scoop the top prize.

They tied the knot at the Square Tower in Old Portsmouth on Saturday in front of a TV crew filming for Four Weddings, which is shown on Living.

And they think their military theme made their big day stand out.

Holly, 24, of Coronation Road, Waterlooville, who is in the Royal Navy, said: ‘We were excited when we found out we were going to be on the show.

‘We just did it as a bit of a joke and then forgot all about it, so it was a real surprise when we found out.

‘It must’ve been the military aspect of it that they liked, because it was something a bit different.’

Holly has been to two weddings for the show and has one more to attend.

But the competition is now only between three couples, as one of the others pulled out.

Holly said: ‘I hope we’ve done enough to win. There’s still one more to go though so I’m not sure.

‘The other wedding was lovely but it was very traditional so I think we might have the edge because ours was so different.

‘Everyone had a lot of fun and there was a lot of entertainment for the guests so hopefully that will make our day stand out.’

Holly’s new husband Kieran, 25, of Agincourt Road, Buckland, serves in the army. He wore his Number One ceremonial uniform for the occasion, as did some of his closest friends.

Guests enjoyed a performance from the drum band in Kieran’s regiment, the 2nd Battalion The Princess of Wales Royal Regiment, during the reception at Southsea Castle.

Kieran said: ‘It was a great day. Everyone said they had a fantastic time because there was just so much going on.

‘It was everything we wanted it to be and more, and to win the honeymoon would just be a bonus.

‘But we won’t be too upset if we don’t because we had such a good time and that’s all that matters.’

The couple will find out the results at the end of October and the show will be aired in January next year.
