East Riding Registration and Celebratory Services are offering one lucky couple the chance to win a civil wedding ceremony.

The prize on offer is a ceremony of choice ranging from the bronze, silver and gold package to the top-of-the-range bespoke platinum ceremony.

All the ceremonies can take place at any of the approved centres across the East Riding.

To be in with a chance of winning the ceremony, registrars want to hear from couples, and in no more than 500 words, give details of how they met and how the marriage proposal took place.
By entering the competition, couples are agreeing to their stories being shared on Facebook.

A shortlist of 10 stories will be chosen and they will appear on the council's Facebook page and the winner will be the one with the most likes, comments or shares.

The winning couple must be free to marry and the ceremony must take place before 31 December 2018 and be willing to provide regular updates on their marriage preparations, including photographs which will appear on Facebook.

The competition is open to all couples, including those who already have booked their ceremony with East Riding Registration and Celebratory Services.

Councillor John Barrett, portfolio holder for council corporate service and performance at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "This is a great prize for couples getting married. It also showcases the outstanding range of ceremonies that the registration and celebratory service has to offer."

Patricia Mann, MBE, superintendent registrar, said: "This competition is open to everyone, young and old and we are looking forward to hearing the stories of how people met and how the proposal of marriage took place."

Anyone who wishes to enter the competition should send their entries, along with a recent photograph of the couple together, by email only, to no later than Friday, 31 March 2017.
