The prize includes a full ceremony with your choice of music and readings in the historic Tudor Hall at the Old Municipal Buildings in Somerset’s county town of Taunton. Invite up to 100 friends and family to be guests at your special day at Somerset’s most popular wedding venue. Capturing it all will be Who Is Benjamin Photography, who will also whisk you away to nearby scenic locations for a post-ceremony couple shoot. Your photos will be fully edited and uploaded to an online gallery for you to share, and digital files for you to print.

Normally priced at £350 for a full ceremony at Taunton Register Office, plus Who Is Benjamin’s Ruby package at £499, this is a fantastic opportunity to win your wedding day essentials. Set in the heart of Taunton, there are some brilliant local venues like The Cosy Club or The Castle Hotel just minutes away where you can carry on your post-ceremony celebrations. Check our Supplier Directory for inspiration.

The ceremony will need to be booked between March and June 2020 at Taunton Register Office in The Tudor Hall, excluding Sundays and Bank Holidays, and depending on availability. Don’t worry – both Ben and ourselves have plenty of dates available to choose from.
