Could bells ring for you?

NATALIE Murphy became the first hopeful to enter this year’s Bride of the Year competition but there’s plenty of time to put yourself in the running.

Why not follow the example of the 30-year-old from the Throston area of Hartlepool and give yourself the chance of a perfect day 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.
