As the wedding season enters its peak, the chances are you’ll have been invited to at least one wedding this year, or will be taking part in several upcoming nuptials as a supplier. If so, we want to hear from you – introducing The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation’s ‘Summer of the Wedding Selfie’, launched in collaboration with Johnsons the Cleaners.
The ‘selfie’ has played a massive role in fundraising circles this year so far. The trend of the ‘No make up selfie’ raised a staggering £8million for Cancer research in just six days back in March, while the more recent ‘Thumbs up for Stephen’ campaign helped the inspirational teenager to raise more than £4million for the Teen Cancer Trust.
We loved seeing so many selfies raising money for such worthwhile causes, and would like to encourage you all to keep on snapping – say, “Cheese!” Whatever your role in the upcoming nuptials, be it as the bride or groom, as a bridesmaid or groomsman, vicar, guest, or supplier, we can’t wait to see your selfie; the funnier they are, the better! Perhaps you’d like to involve a whole group of people, a la Ellen’s Oscar Selfie, or are a gentleman keen to don a wedding dress of your own; the sky’s the limit!
How will my selfie help The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation?
We hope that your Wedding Selfies will help to raise much-needed awareness of The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation; let’s get sharing! We are also asking that you make a small donation of just £2 along with every selfie submitted. It may not seem much, but can you imagine how much we could raise if every guest at a wedding sent their selfie and donated £2? Your donation will help a couple affected by a terminal, or life-limiting, illness to experience the wedding day of their dreams. It really will make all the difference as they start a new chapter of their lives together.
Having recently renewed her wedding vows, our very own Naomi would like to kick start the campaign with her own Wedding Selfie; what a gorgeous couple, and a very cheeky Devon in the background! Feeling inspired yet? Then get out there with your camera and enjoy the day!
Here are a few more wedding selfies to inspire you…
I’ve taken my selfie – what should I do now?
You can send your selfie to The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #wedwishselfie. To donate, please text ‘WISH09 £2′ to 70070.
We’d love for the Wedding Selfie to spread far and wide this summer. Once you’ve taken yours, why not share it with Facebook or Twitter to encourage friends, family, or even celebrities to follow suit? We can’t wait to see your pictures!
