What a wonderful day: Win a £10,000 dream wedding package

Win a £10,000 dream wedding package, including a luxury reception and overnight stay at Belfast's Ten Square, plus a gorgeous wedding dress from Blush Boutique.

Belfast's leading boutique hotel Ten Square will mark a massive makeover of its newly-refurbished Linenhall Suite with a wedding showcase next Sunday.

And to celebrate the sumptuous new surroundings at the chic city centre hotel, brides who are Belfast Telegraph readers can come along to register on the day and their details will be entered into a draw to win a fantastic dream wedding package worth £10,000.

This incredible prize will include a sumptuous reception and overnight stay at the hotel's suite for the newly-weds, with a designer wedding dress for the lucky bride, from Blush Boutique, worth £1,500.

Brides who register at the wedding showcase will be treated to cocktails and canapes in the hotel which overlooks the prestigious Belfast City Hall. They will also be entered into the draw for the luxury wedding.

The bridal package will include a reception for 100 guests, with a drinks reception on arrival, a four-course gourmet menu, a half bottle of wine for each guest, a sparkling toast, evening buffet and an overnight stay in the hotel's luxurious suite. The lucky couple will also receive a room design from Mood Events to make sure they have a perfect day, with a DJ from Vertu Entertainment to get the party started.

And then there's the stunning wedding gown from Blush Boutique. Ten Square's bridal events team will have the Linenhall Suite set up for a chic wedding next Sunday to give prospective brides an idea of what Ten Square would look like on their wedding day. Wedding co-ordinators will discuss bespoke ideas and themes and couples can liaise with the hotel's preferred partners, including Mood Event Design, Bradley Quinn Photography, Victoria Gault Florist, Cakes by James and Vertu Entertainment.

Wedding and events manager Lucy Anderson says: "From initial plans to the magic of the day itself, our wedding team at Ten Square Hotel will carefully co-ordinate every moment to make each bride's wedding an unforgettable experience.

"Couples will be able to peruse menus and wine lists and taste the culinary delights from the hotel's executive chef Chris Bell. Chris spent a year working at the seven star Burj Al Arab in Dubai and twice represented Northern Ireland on the hit BBC Television show Great British Menu."

Lucy can provide expert advice on wedding cakes, room design and floral design, and as Ten Square is a licensed venue for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, the hotel team can liaise with City Hall Registrars to make marriage applications.

Lucy adds: "Our exquisite 23 guest rooms offer luxurious overnight accommodation for the bridal party and guests at preferential rates, allowing the couple's special day to last all day or even over several days.

"Our experienced team of specialists will ensure that each detail unfolds according to the bride's desires and we look forward to January 24."

The win-a-wedding couple will be drawn at random by the hotel's general manager on the day and the winner notified by January 31.

Our photographers will be there to capture the moment and we'll follow up with photos from the lucky couple's big day when they get hitched.
