Today to Giveaway A Top End Wedding

A nationwide search will begin today to find one lucky couple who will have an all-expense-paid dream wedding and honeymoon in the Northern Territory.

In a spectacular television event, TODAY is teaming up with Tourism NT to give away the ultimate wedding package in one of the most alluring and magical places in the world. Every detail will be looked after, with the prize including flights and accommodation for the lucky couple, and their closest friends and family.

The prize will include a wedding planner, celebrant, photographer, cars, florist, hair and make-up artists, the dress and the ring. And then there’s the entire reception including the cake and catering – and for those who can’t make the wedding, it’ll all be broadcast live on TODAY later this year.

With the Top End being one of the diverse regions in Australia, a bride and groom could find themselves tying the knot in Kakadu; walking down an aisle of gum trees in Katherine Gorge or overlooking the turquoise waters of Darwin.

TODAY has a long tradition of hosting “Marry in the Morning” competitions that stretch back to 2003 when Tracy Grimshaw and Steve Liebmann were hosting the program. Locations for previous TODAY weddings include Hayman Island and Sydney’s Botanical Gardens.

Nine’s Director of Morning Television, Steven Burling, said: “This is such an exciting competition and one that every newly engaged couple should get involved with! It’s an opportunity for a happy couple to say “I DO” in front of family and friends, at one of the most spectacularly beautiful locations on earth.

“We want to thank Tourism NT for supporting this competition, I think we’ll be absolutely inundated with entries.”

To enter, viewers are encouraged to go to from today (Monday, February 11) and tell us in 50 words or fewer why they deserve a Top End wedding, and upload a short video.
