Who We Are
Win Your Wedding Organiser & Wedding Cake Designer
Lou - Bake to the Future
Between seeing doctors and nurses on the news, hearing my sister talking about the impact on the nursing home she works in, seeing Tesco staff trying to raise everyone’s spirits when I go shopping and the emotional out pouring during the clap for the NHS every week, I felt such pride to live in a country that has something as special as our NHS.
I wanted to give back, inspired by the actions of other people in the industry I decided to bring together a super group of wedding suppliers to thank our NHS in the best way we know how – by throwing one special couple the wedding of their dreams! I couldn’t be happier or prouder to be a part of this and I’m immensely proud to know all of the suppliers who have come aboard and donated their time and resources to making this competition what it is.

Whitney - Loops and Letters
There are nurses, physios, GPs, midwives, paramedics and so many more NHS workers that are putting the nation’s health before their own each and every day. During this time of crisis, I could not be more appreciative of this. Like most people probably feel right now, I am so grateful to the NHS workers for their selfless commitment and wish there was something I could do to give back and show that appreciation. That is why when Lou came up with this idea, I jumped at the opportunity! Giving away a dream wedding to a deserving NHS worker is an honour and I am so happy to be a part of a team of amazing vendors offering this amazing gift!
Bridal Hair Stylist
Katie - Pretty Please By Katie
My job is all about making people look and feel amazing. A lot of the time brides tell me that they don’t know ‘how’ to look pretty, or they don’t ‘feel” confident, so by being a part of something like this, for someone so deserving, really means a lot to me. I’ve been styling brides on their wedding mornings for over 7 years now and every bride deserves to feel special – especially this one! All these small businesses, getting together like this, is our way of showing our appreciation to the NHS by sharing the skills that we have to offer and I’m proud to be a part of that.
Sarah - Strawberry Photography
Right now, the NHS are on the frontline facing this pandemic and fighting for us. They are all incredible and they are all heroes. They also brought my little girl safely into the world not so long ago and were just amazing. I will be doing the engagement shoot and I am so excited to kick off the wedding celebrations and set the lucky winners off on the path to what will be the best wedding ever! So many great suppliers have come together, and I feel blooming lucky to be a part of this and to be able to give back and say a big fat thank you to some individuals that have given so much. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Stuart - Stuart Weller Magic
The reason I’m doing it is as a gesture to say thank you to the front line key workers who have helped us all in our hour of need.
Sarah - Invicta Weddings
My husband is a front line key worker and so are many of our close friends. I have nothing but admiration for the job that they do, in particular the staff of the NHS, who have been selflessly and tirelessly committed to battling Covid when many of them did not sign up for that kind of undertaking. Their unwavering dedication has taken a toll on their own health and mental wellbeing that will affect them for years to come. I am very grateful to be able to show my appreciation for all they have done by coordinating this amazing wedding.

I think I echo everyone’s reasons for doing this. I feel the need to
show my appreciation for all the hard work the NHS staff are doing
for us every single second of the day during this incredibly troubling
and worrying time. It’s only in times like these do we appreciate our
NHS service. I am sure (I hope) once this is over we will have a new found
appreciation for the work they do.

I’m really excited to be involved with this fantastic project which just shows how grateful we all are for the hard work, sacrifice and dedication shown by those working for the NHS in Kent.

Wedding Ring Workshop
Natalie - Navette Jewellery
As the Studio is situated not far from the William Harvey Hospital near Ashford, I have had many clients who work there, some being nurses that have booked to experience the “Make your own wedding rings ” – workshop day. These past few weeks I have often wondered how they are and also if they are coping. Knowing how dedicated and giving those that work for the NHS are, I thought that I could in my small way, say to at least one couple…”Thank you for being there for us, we are now here for you.”
James - james-paul.co.uk
I have been in the wedding industry for several years, but on the side I love to build websites for small businesses and individuals, and I built this very website you are on!
I’ve always appreciated the professionalism of the NHS, and whenever I have needed to use their services it’s always been world class.
I would love to design your wedding website, which you can share with all your guests, so they can get just as excited as you both in the build up to your big day!
Bridal Hair Stylist
Danielle - Bliss Bridal
When asked to join award winning suppliers to take part in this project, I knew that it was something I had to be a part of. Each one of us, in one way or another, has been affected by this pandemic. Whilst we have sat at home to help the decrease of the disease, the winner of this prize will have been on the frontline. All of our NHS workers have gone above and beyond, I wanted to be able to thank and acknowledge what they mean to us all.

Claire - Couchman Bespoke
Couchman Bespoke are ethical tailors based in East London. We are dedicated to reducing the pollution caused from the clothing industry. Through the use of sustainable cloth being either natural organic or remnant sourced within the UK or Europe.
I wanted to be a part of the Kent NHS Wedding competition and provide the outfit for either bride or groom as the NHS work so selflessly even outside of such a crisis as we find ourselves in. My brother-in-law is a nurse and has stepped up to work the ventilators that help in the most server cases of Corvid19, which is the bravest thing I have ever heard. I feel it is only right that I give something bad myself and to give to such a brave NHS couple seems only right.
Karina - Simply Ceremonies UK
I am happy to support the NHS as they saved my daughters life when she was 15. They restarted her heart and I put the ❤️ into my ceremonies.

Ellouise - Flowers by EG
I’m not able to create masks, sew scrubs and I definitely wouldn’t want to put anymore stress on the NHS by cooking for them – so I’ve chosen to use my talents where best, by giving one deserving couple a wedding of a life time – they’ve served our country through an awful pandemic and what better way to give something than to create one of the most magical days of their lives and for me to bring lots of lovely florals together to give them a wedding of their dreams!
Wedding Day Photography
Florence - Florence Berry Photography
Hi, I’m Florence Berry Photography and I’m taking part in this incredible giveaway to help show our appreciation towards the frontline NHS staff who are battling the coronavirus pandemic. I have felt completely useless in the situation, I’m pregnant and have been self isolating as much as I can with my husband and toddler. A lot of my friends and family have been able to assist vulnerable neighbours and friends, sew scrubs or masks and even some of my self employed friends in the industry have been able to get jobs in keyworker positions to help. When Lou started to gather suppliers together for this incredible competition, I jumped at the chance to be involved. What better way to show my appreciation than to do what I love and help somebody’s wedding dreams come true!

Like so many of us I am in awe of the way in which our NHS staff go to work every day knowing that they face a very real threat to their own health and yet they continue to do so because they care and want to help.

I am very proud and excited to be a part of this fabulous team of people, working together to make your wedding day wonderful and memorable.

I am proud to be in a position to give something back to the wonderful NHS staff in Kent. Last year I spent over 5 weeks in hospital after 3 serious operations on my right leg. The care and treatment I received was amazing and I am convinced without the kindness and friendship of the staff my recovery would have taken considerably longer. It’s great to be able to offer something back and help make someone’s day.

Tim - TG Executive Hire
The reason why I wanted to contribute is that I was working in 2017 in a 5* deluxe hotel in Knightsbridge, London. Living in Gillingham and having very early start/late finishing times I got myself a motorbike to commute to work. On the 21st March I had planned to meet my wife for lunch at Bluewater and then go to work for my late shift. I had a freak bike accident at the Bluewater turn-off, that ended not too good for me. I got taken to 3 hospitals within 6 hours, the last one being King’s College crash trauma unit in Denmark Hill by blue-light and call-a-head. Nearly made it on TV as they were filming 24hrs in A&E there, but refused to be filmed. I got placed in a Taylor walking frame and spent the next 10 days in a High-dependency unit and a further 18 days in a ward. I got discharged by the Head of Orthopedy, having saved my totally smashed-up leg, and got told I would never be able to return to catering work and would not be able to walk for a year. I returned to part-time office work in December 2017 and now I’m able to use my fully recovered leg. Sadly this accident started the end of my working career in hotels and last year I started up my own company. What a year to choose this step…. I have since shelved the bike idea and only drive cars.
I had the great opportunity to thank two of my caring staff from King’s during a Christmas Party Night they held in the hotel in worked in after In Greenwich 2018.
Val - Appy Aces

Dave - Dave Brazier Sax

During this awful pandemic all NHS staff on the frontline are doing an absolutely amazing job and we can’t be more thankful for them, I have clients, friends and family all working on the frontline which are thought about everyday selflessly doing their jobs putting themselves at risk for the well-being of everyone else!
So if I can do even a little bit to help show my gratitude to them all I will and what better way then being able to do the job I love to make them feel pampered!

Emma - Party Bags Online
I create fun-filled personalised party bags for any occasion but specialising in children’s celebrations. Knowing only too well as a parent how stressful it can be to source, shop, and fill party bags with great items instead of throw-away toys, I wanted to make the process a dream rather than a nightmare so Party Bag Online was born. My bags contain no sweets or chocolates.
