We're still collecting donations

On the 9th July 2020 we'd raised £81 with 3 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of NHS and Frontline staff. Together, we can help give something back. A wonderful wedding for the successful NHS/Frontline Staff would be a really great way to give something back and we are professional wedding and event suppliers - we know how to throw amazing weddings.

We have all benefited from the NHS – haven’t we? 

We have all seen what the NHS and Front line staff (and indeed all the staff) have done in working to keep the services going through thick and thin whilst we are going through this worldwide Pandemic. They have done us all proud, and keep saying that we must do something to pay them back.

My name is Shola and I have been a wedding planner for over 10 years, and I know how weddings can become quite expensive when you add all the individual components together.

In fact, it could make many couples not to even want to get married, as they simply can’t afford it- not on the wages of a general staff nurse or a newly qualified nurse or social worker. This competition is open to couples who have at least one of the couple working in the front line.

In London, the professionals have suffered and have had no real time to even think about themselves or their relationships whilst carrying out their life-saving roles diligently and with no real thought for themselves. We have lost over 100 dedicated NHS Professional who had a lot live for, yet they gave their lives to save as many people as they could in doing so. They have put all of that on the back burner to fight for us, and the NHS.

I have lost sleep thinking what can I do to “give something back”, and this has been playing on my mind and as a wedding planner, I have decided that the best thing to give to a deserving couple to help them make some sense of life and some happiness after all the sadness and trials they must have gone through over the past 3 - 4 months, is to get a group of 1st class wedding and event professionals together and offer a free wedding day for a really deserving couple.

Whilst I believe that everyone who has been working on the frontline deserves, of a brilliant day, we would like to gift a superb wedding day to one couple.

Crowdfunder is offering their creative platform to allow us to give something back and we would like your help and support to gift this to a lucky deserving couple. It would take all the burden from them and make 2021 a year for them to start their married life together ecstatic knowing they do not have to foot the bill for their wedding. In fact, we would go out to make it a special day to remember. 

We would like to offer the Bride's Wedding Dress, Groom's Suit, Wedding Venue, Catering, Event Decor, MC, DJ, Wedding Florals, Bridesmaids Dresses - and all the other things which go to make a wedding really wonderful.

What will you get from supporting us? - The good feeling from this crowd funder will be felt by all those around you.

  • We can collectively thank our amazing NHS couple, and let them some amazing memories for everything they have done for us all.
  • The Wedding Collective will be able to gift a really wonderful all-expenses-paid wedding and will aid the start of our business road to recovery, in what will be a tough year for the events industry.
  • We as wedding and Events professionals will have work to do to ensure this wedding is the best ever and would be the start of our wedding year in 2021.
  • Help the events industry, we work at thousands of venues across London, we want to keep our important social industry going for the good of all.

We appreciate all donations and we look forward to creating the most amazingly magical wedding for our NHS superstar couple.
