Love will be in the air this summer as 1000s of couples seek out the chance to win a wedding worth £2,000.
The winning couple will celebrate their special day in style with a ceremony and reception, including a gourmet meal for up to 60 people, at either Huddersfield’s or Dewsbury’s stunning Victorian Town Halls.
Our Town Halls and Registration Services have come together to offer this fantastic prize, which can be won by taking part in The Big Wedding Treasure Hunt.
The treasure hunt, which runs until the 23 August, will take participants around some of the district’s beautiful venues in search of hidden letters that spell out a special word.
Once couples have found the word, they can email it over to the council, for a chance to be included in the grand finale. Twenty couples will then be selected at random to compete in a live on-stage quiz called the Couple’s Challenge at 3.30pm on 7 September 2019 at Dewsbury Town Hall.
During the Couple’s Challenge, twenty couples will go head to head to find out who knows each other best. The three couples with the highest scores will then compete in a surprise final battle to win the wedding of their dreams.
The competition aims to showcase our venues which include everything from museums to town halls as places to visit and celebrate special occasions.
Cllr Rob Walker Cabinet Member for Culture said:
“Kirklees is incredibly lucky to be the home of some stunning town halls, and many people simply don’t realise that they cater for weddings, receptions and other celebrations.
With their impressive sweeping staircases, wood panelling and beautiful ceremony and banqueting rooms, our town halls offer all the grandeur of a stately home but at a fraction of the price.
This competition is a fun way to get couples to visit some of our venues, and see what we have on offer – I would encourage anyone planning to getting married to take part.”
The competition is open to couples living in England or Wales, who are looking to hold their wedding before the end of 2020.
