A massive thank you from Jordan and Daniel

We'd just like to thank everyone that offered to help with Jordan and Daniels wedding in August. They now have everything they need for their special day and would like to thank each and every one of you for being so kind and caring. We will get a list of all the suppliers that are helping on the day and put it up here with a photo of the new MR & MRS.  

Daniel was sadly diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at just 30 years old - his father died at just 35 and Daniel has been given a similar prognosis.

We're pleased to be able to help this lovely couple x

Richie and Laurie-Beth's 1st Anniversary

A year ago today we had the pleasure of putting on a dream wedding for Richie and Laurie-Beth. Richie had stage 4 Sarcoma, he was only 33 years old. To look at him you'd think he was a healthy young man with the world at his feet - on the inside he was battling this terrible cancer which was about to take his life.

We managed to give them the dream day they deserved before it was too late. Richie sadly passed away just a few months after their wedding - he left behind his little boy Alfie who was only 7 years old. Our thoughts go out to Laurie-Beth and all of the family today.

Thanks to everyone who donated their time to make this day possible. Thanks to Pam Hordon for these gorgeous photos - check out her blog post below for more photos of their day and a list of suppliers that helped.

Angel Gowns - Thank You

Thanks so much to Elsie Joyce Andrews who has spent a lot of time over the past year turning lots of your old wedding dresses into angel gowns for babies who are no longer with us. These gowns were sent to the SANDS Charity. Thanks to everyone that donated a wedding gown - we really appreciate it.

We really need to raise more funds so we can put nice packages together, or if you know of anyone that's willing to donate their time to make some please let us know.

We need more helpers, so if you're good at a sewing machine and in the Manchester area please email rachael@wishforawedding.co.uk

Thank you x
