This is one incredible giveaway that we just had to share!
Luxury wedding show company Bridelux has partnered with Rosewood London, one of the finest five star hotels in the city, and HELLO! magazine to offer a complimentary, once-in-a-lifetime wedding, for one deserving couple and up to 150 guests!
The competition is open to those working as key workers, NHS staff or carers during the current COVID-19 crisis, with a wedding package worth over £100,000 up for grabs.
James Lord, Bridelux and founder of the initiative said:
In these uncertain times, I am very proud of the UK wedding industry to pull together to create this phenomenal wedding for key workers. Everyone jumped at the idea. It’s the least we all could do to give something back.
Nearly 30 suppliers from florists to cake makers, and stationery to styling have kindly donated their time and expertise to create the wedding of a lifetime for the chosen couple. Award-winning wedding planner Melanie at Cranberry Blue will work alongside bespoke caterer Jimmy Garcia, who has produced events for Google, Vogue and Facebook. Internationally renowned florist Farima Perry will create the flowers for the day and celebrity favourite Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium will design the wedding cake of dreams.
The wedding will be held in the grand Ballroom at Rosewood London, which has catered for numerous VIP weddings, events and parties. The couple will stay in one of the hotel’s top suites for their wedding night, with breakfast served in the morning.
Michael Bonsor, managing director of Rosewood London, said:
Rosewood London is delighted to be a partner of this amazing initiative to be able give back and help NHS staff, carers and key workers who have been working so hard to keep us all safe in these exceptional times. As a hotel, we have long supported the NHS and recently, our teams have been working to provide meals to NHS staff.
