A third person commented: "Amazing! You both deserve to win for your genuine loveliness and the fact that you take the time to answer emails to us folk in the UK. Hope you're going to do another series soon!" 

The good news comes after a busy few weeks for the couple, who recently opened up their residence to couples wanting to get married at the beautiful Château de la Motte-Husson. 

Dick and Angel had been forced to postpone events scheduled to be held at their 19th-century abode due to the coronavirus pandemic and had not hosted a wedding since 2019 until early May.

"Over the past few months, the Chateau's Orangery has been filled with love and celebration. The perfect setting for a vintage-inspired soirée."
