Not only is today Dydd Santes Dwynwen, but this year, the prestigious Royal Welsh Show is celebrating its 100th show… and we want to share the love.

Along with a number of other commemorative touches to this year’s event, we are offering one lucky couple the opportunity to have an all-expenses paid wedding*, here on the showground, during the first day of our 100th Royal Welsh Show.

Surrounded by an intimate group of friends and family, the pair will tie the knot in our picturesque bandstand, in the heart of the busy and bustling showground.

Following the ceremony, the couple can enjoying a glass of chilled champagne whilst relaxing in the Presidents Box of the main ring grandstand (best seats in the house!). After a few precious minutes to themselves, watching the main ring attractions, the newlyweds will then join their guests for a delicious wedding breakfast.

It will certainly be a wedding to remember. With the hustle and bustle of the event and the excitement of the wedding, the atmosphere will be incredible and the photos will be amazing.

Maybe you met each other at a previous show? Perhaps you attend every year with your other half? If the Royal Welsh Show holds a special place in your heart, this could be the perfect occasion for you both get married during this iconic event.

So, could Monday 22 July 2019 be your wedding day?
