Engaged couples could win £1,000 towards their dream wedding by sharing their love stories.

Northumberland wedding venue Matfen Hall Hotel is calling on anyone who has successfully popped the question – or said yes – to share the story of their proposal.

The story judged to be the most touching, funny or romantic will win its contributors £1,000 of upgrades for their Matfen Hall wedding, from props and enhancements from Gosforth’s Finishing Touch Company to extended food and drink packages. The competition, running until Sunday, May 1, is in its second year. To enter visit www.matfenhall.com
