WOULD-BE brides have just been given even more reason to enter a competition where they could win their dream day.

An extra sponsor has joined the Bride of the Year competition, run by the Hartlepool Mail in conjunction with Robert Usher Photography.

Snappy Shack – a photobooth hire company – has joined an already impressive list of backers for the competition. Their support now takes the value of the prize package to £12,810.

Snappy Shack, based in Billingham and Hartlepool, is offering its full, regular wedding package to our winners with the addition of a guest book.

That means one lucky couple will get a four-hour use of the Snappy Shack on their big day. The prize from the firm also includes unlimited double print photos and video messages, a USB of all photos and videos, a prop box, and a “Shack Servant” to look after the guests. It’s a prize which would normally be worth £520.

It is yet another reason for couples to enter the competition and put themselves in with a chance of winning their dream day.

Our ultimate wedding package is brought to you thanks to competition organiser Robert Usher, of Robert Usher Photography.

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.

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.
