To our wonderful suppliers: A great big thank you…

Christmas is a fantastic time for reflection, and for celebrating the things we have achieved throughout the year. The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation has experienced a remarkable 2013, filled with laughter, tears, tremendous pride, and – most importantly – some truly magical wedding days. Watching a special couple say, “I do” is the reason we exist; their happiness is our inspiration, and the very centre of our operation.

While fundraising is absolutely key to our foundation, we simply wouldn’t be able to organise these amazing weddings without the dedication, generosity, and downright brilliance of our suppliers. Whatever your talent or speciality, you have approached the foundation in your droves to offer support, a helping hand, and your expertise – for that, we can’t say thank you enough.

Each and every one of our suppliers is a shining star, an inspiration in their field. Thank you for being a part of something amazing; for helping The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation to flourish.

A very Merry Christmas to you, and a prosperous New Year – we look forward to working with you in the year ahead.

To all wedding suppliers: Can you help?

As a New Year dawns, we need the help of our suppliers – new and old – more than ever. We are hoping to make 2014 our best year yet, filled with abundant happy memories, love, laughter, and even more fantastic weddings. We receive hundreds of applications from deserving couples, each of them affected by terminal and life-limiting illnesses; it would be amazing to think that, in 2014, we can help to organise and fund their nuptials.

Whatever your talent or service – floristry, wedding invitations, dressmaking, venue decorating, chauffeuring, wedding planning, or more – we need to hear from YOU. It doesn’t matter how small or large your contribution; with your help, we can help more couples to marry and enjoy the special day they deserve.

If you would like to be added to our supplier database, please email us on info@weddingwishingwell.org.uk. Be sure to include details of your company, as well as your website and contact details.

We look forward to working with you in the coming year.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Calling all Christmas Angels; give a little this festive season

With only eleven shopping days (that’s twelve sleeps!) until Christmas, the chances are you’ve bought the vast majority of your gifts already. However, if you’ve yet to find that perfect present, or would like to make all the difference to a special couple this festive season, become a Christmas star and consider making a donation to the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation.

The Foundation works tirelessly throughout the year to ensure that couples affected by terminal and life-limiting illnesses are able to enjoy the wedding day of their dreams. Helping to overcome the financial burden of illness, while aiming to take away the strain of organising a wedding, the Foundation relies on the generosity of its suppliers, fundraisers, and those who make donations – either on a one-off basis, or via direct debit.

Your donation could buy a wedding cake for one of the Foundation’s couples, cover their transport to and from their venue, or even be used against the cost of a caterer; there is no better gift than that of a smile and your donations, and those made in honour of your loved ones, will make all the difference to the couples we aim to help.

Donate your Dress

Did you get married in 2013? Congratulations! We hope you had an absolutely fantastic day, full of lots of happy memories. If you now find yourself with a wedding dress, shoes, jewellery, suits, or bridesmaids outfits that are simply gathering dust in your wardrobe, why not gift them to The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation? Your item could play an important part in another wedding, helping to create wonderful memories for a very special couple.

To donate your dress, suit, shoes, or accessories, please pop into your local branch of Johnson’s Cleaners; they will be happy to pass it on to us.
