Singles whisked away at Wallace Wants a Wife

LOVE was in the air at last night's Wallace Wants a Wife, with more than 400 singles joining in the fun and hoping to find their perfect match.

Taking place at the Wallace Hotel, the yearly singles event brings together people of all ages with a night of matchmaking.

With men and women aged between 25 and 95 years old, there was someone for everyone to shack up with.

Organiser Andrea Wilson said people got into the spirit early, with plenty of singles dancing and enjoying the live music.

She said there was a good chance the event might have brought together some new couples.

"I reckon there might be," she said.

"As they were going out the door they said 'yep' or 'maybe'. I think there might be a few more couples at this one."

Plans were already being made for next year's event, Ms Wilson said, which will be the fifth Wallace Wants a Wife.

"We are going to do something special, we're not sure yet. We're going to come up with an idea suitable for the fifth year."

Those who attended this year's event will be contacted in January next year to see if they're still single and want to have another crack.

Ms Wilson said hopefully a few people met the one this year and don't need to come back. 

"That'd be really nice," she said.
