Meet the contenders




What’s the prize?



The overall winners will not only claim the all-important Wedding of the Year title and a two-page feature in the magazine, they'll also win an indulgent two night stay at Chilston Park Hotel. The prize includes two nights accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis, with champagne afternoon tea on arrival, followed by canapés and a glass of fizz, with dinner and wine. The following day, the happy couple will enjoy dinner from the tasting menu with accompanying wine. Terms and conditions apply; dates are subject to availability.

Located in the idyllic village of Lenham, Chilston Park Hotel is a magnificent country house set in stunning gardens. The Grade I listed building is stuffed to the rafters with original fireplaces, four-poster beds and fine antiques. Couples can take their pick from two rooms for the ceremony: the Orangery, which is a beautiful conservatory with a 180-degree panorama of the grounds and is licensed for ceremonies of up to 104 guests or, for more intimate celebrations, the Star Room has charm aplenty and seats 30 loved ones. For the reception, couples can choose from a range of rooms, with the portrait-lined Fitzhammond Suite accommodating 96 of your nearest and dearest for a candlelit banquet.

    Readers' poll

    Who cares more about your big day - you or your hubby-to-be?

    Definitely me, all he has to do is turn up!
    He'll be doing the 'man stuff' such as suits and cars but he hasn't a clue about flowers.
    I've been surprised by how involved he wants to be - but the details are my domain.
    He's the original groomzilla - he has an opinion about everything.
