After seeing the impact of Coronavirus, photographer Andy Griffiths, along with a group of friends in the wedding industry decided to team up to give one lucky couple something to look forward to – a dream wedding – whilst raising much needed funds for the NHS.
Working with a large number of suppliers from across the North-West, Andy, from Rainford, has launched a competition for one lucky couple to win an all-expenses paid wedding which will take place at the prestigious Cheshire wedding venue, Mottram Hall on Saturday 23rd January 2021. The prize, which has been valued at £30,000, also includes food and drink for the day, rings, outfits for the bridal party, entertainment for the whole day, a mini-moon and a whole lot more.
The campaign #TieTheKnot4NHS simply asks couples to make a £25 donation for the NHS via a JustGiving page and then complete a form via a website. All the money raised will be donated to the NHS. Any couple that are front line workers within the NHS such as doctors and nurses, and wish to enter are exempt from making the donation and can enter for free.
Other suppliers include: Butter Cup Cakes, Champneys, Your Ceremony, Rockside Holidays, Lasting Memories by Alison, James Tracey Wedding Films, Salon Maghull, Hayley Mcgaroty, Emma Rose Wedding Stationery, Liz Hendry Piano, Sam Fitton Magic, The Distance, The Midnight Cats, DJ Gary Mills, The Word is Love, Smileomatic Photobooths, Isabelita Bakes, Lottie’s Bridal Boutique, Whitefield and Ward, Diddibox Flowers, Ainsworth Jewletters, Rachel Simpson Shoes, Laurellime and Moments Candle.
Andy Griffiths, photographer and owner of Andy Griffiths Photography said: “The impact that Coronavirus has had on everyone has been overwhelming and I really wanted to do something to help by putting a smile on people’s faces and giving them something to look forward to.
“As a result of the health crisis, all my wedding work was cancelled so I had time on my hands to plan something really special – a fundraiser for the NHS. I came up with the idea and then contacted all the amazing suppliers I work with and between us have been able to put together this offer of a dream wedding.”
The nomination and donation have to be received by 30th May and the winner will be announced 31st May.
