WOULD-BE brides have been given a deadline to enter a competition with a £12,000 wedding at stake.

The Bride of the Year competition, run by the Hartlepool Mail in conjunction with Robert Usher Photography, will close for entries on Friday, March 1.

That means anyone hoping of winning our fantastic prize has 40 days left to put themselves in the running for a day to remember.

And if you havent entered yet, there’s still time to tell us you should win a perfect day, including taking your wedding vows in the Captain’s Cabin on board HMS Trincomalee on Friday, September 6.

Our ultimate wedding package – brought to you thanks to competition organiser Robert Usher of Robert Usher Photography – is worth £12,290.

Couples who have entered before – and whose dream of marrying has still not become reality – are welcome to enter.

So too are those who have never entered before and would love to enjoy a day filled with wonderful memories.

All will be equally welcome in this year’s Bride of the Year competition.

You just have to tell us why you think you deserve the title – and a dream wedding courtesy of the Hartlepool Mail and Robert Usher Photography.

Send the Mail a letter or an email explaining who you are and why you deserve to win.

Tell us your story and include as much detail as you can about yourself and your partner, how you met and why you should be chosen.

Send all your entries to: Chris Cordner, Hartlepool Mail, New Clarence House, Wesley Square, Hartlepool, TS24 8BX, or email

Please include contact address and telephone numbers.

Normal competition rules apply, for more details see Page 8.

The winning couple will be expected to take part in pre and post-wedding day publicity.
