PUBS are inviting couples getting married on Royal Wedding day to raise a toast with them as part of their celebration plans,

The Porch House and The Sheep on Sheep Street in Stow-on-the-Wold have complimentary bottles of fizz on ice for newlyweds who share the Royal Wedding date.

The pubs are also offering any couple called Meghan and Harry or Henry and Rachel getting married on the same day an overnight stay and dinner.

Duncan Craig, general manager of The Porch House, which is certified as England's oldest inn, said: "The 19th May is a special date not only for Prince Harry and Meghan, but for many other local couples who will also be tying the knot and we want to help them celebrate their future happiness."

He added: "The first five couples to contact us and bring in their marriage certificate to the pub will receive a bottle of fizz. We also hope there is another Meghan and Harry or Henry and Rachel out there to claim the fantastic overnight stay."

Tom Marshall, general manager of 17th century inn The Sheep on Sheep Street said: "We hope our delicious hampers, teapot cocktails and commemorative beer will help get people in celebratory mood for the Royal Wedding. We look forward to customers enjoying these in the lead up to this exciting national celebration and on the day itself when people can watch the wedding here."

To claim a free bottle of Prosecco, couples getting married on Saturday May 19 should email with ‘I'm Getting Married on 19 May' in the subject line and provide their name, address and phone number.

Couples called Meghan and Harry or Henry and Rachel who also share the Royal Wedding date should also email with ‘We are called Harry and Meghan' in the subject line and provide contact details.

Couples must also produce a marriage certificate when visiting the pub to claim their prize.
