Blushing brides who claimed the sought-after honour won a range of top prizes including holidays, cosmetics, cash and discounts on their wedding dress.

In 1990 a stunned Maxine Eddis and husband David Roe had a happy start to married life after winning the title.

Her prize included a wedding dress worth up to £200 from Chesterfield Bridal Rooms.

The 25-year-old deputy tours manager from coach firm Skills said: “It will take a while for it to sink in that I have actually won.”

Beauty therapist Terie Quigley was chosen by judges in 1991. The 24-year-old of Chesterfield beat off 45 contenders and had her big day at Chesterfield’ Crooked Spire.

Her prizes included a washing machine worth £439 and 50 per cent off a wedding gown from Ladyfair. Runners up were Travey Clarke and Lisa Pembleton.
