WEDDING day dreams are about to come true for one lucky couple - with a chance to win your big day on us!

The Star has teamed up with the prestigious Mercure St Paul's Hotel and others to give away everything from the cake to the honeymoon - worth a staggering 10,000.

The main prize is a 5,000 reception at the Mercure St Paul's Hotel. It includes a wedding day breakfast for up to 40 people, based on its 30 menu and 18.50 drinks per person package.

Our winners will also get an evening function for up to 80 people, based on the hotel's 15 per person finger buffet.

The Mercure is also giving five complimentary junior suites for the night - one for the bride and groom, the bride's parents, groom's parents, best man and chief bridesmaid.

You'll also get 40 bacon butties, either on arrival or at the end of the night.
