*Win your Wedding!*

That’s right, we’re giving away a wedding ceremony as a great prize here on Nene Local! Worth up to £500!

You need to be able to marry or want to renew your vows next year (2015) and in Northamptonshire.

As part of the Great Thrapston Wedding Challenge we are marrying in Tasty Bite Victorian Cafe and having an English Tea Party, but we’d like to hear what you want to do….  Rachel from Danetree Ceremonies can marry couples anywhere at any time, and also does vow renewal too.

So why not get adventurous and plan an amazing day!

How to Enter;

You will need to send us the names of the people to wed (or renew vows), and a little bit about each person.  Enclose a photo if you wish.  Then we need to know your date, and place you desire to say your vows.  You can enclose drawings and sketches, photos, recordings, mood boards to show your theme, the bigger and bolder the entry the more likely it will catch the judges eye!

So do you want to renew your vows under Nine Arches Bridge, marry on Rushden & Diamonds Football pitch, or climb a tree at Stanwick Lakes and marry at the top?  Star Wars….Harry Potter….Pink…..
