Win Your Wedding

Win Your Wedding

 It’s time. To face. Theeeee music…

You know it’s going to be something pretty special when literally no adjective or compliment applied is big enough. The best, the biggest, the most anticipated, the most exciting, the most ridiculous, life-changing, the most over-the-top…take your pick and we’ll gladly accept it. The point is, our Win Your Wedding competition, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win everything you need for your wedding completely free, launches today!

My heart is pounding and my fingers are trembling with frenetic excitement as I type this but what we have on offer for you is SO GOOD that any other reaction would be lacklustre somewhat. All of the important terms and conditions are available here. Now sit back and see exactly what you can win, worth over £10,000, to make you dreams come true!

Firstly, your photography will be courtesy of the incredibly talented Sarah Wayte Photography. With a brilliant knack for capturing the moments that make your heart soar (whether major moments or fleeting miniscule ones) in the most natural and romantic way, she’ll leave you with memories to last a lifetime. Her photos have the ability to take you back to the moment like you’re living it again – and she’s an absolute delight to have around on the day.

Your dress will be provided by The Bridal Affair, a stunning boutique set in the picturesque town of Boroughbridge. Holding a collection of amazing designers including Veromia and Olivia Grace, in a range of sizes from 8 to 34, you’ll be treated to a consultation and fitting, before choosing the dress of your dreams – and it’s entirely up to you! Your shoes, possibly the most important thing, are from the fabulous Charlotte Mills. The beautiful Alexis Ivory, heart embroidered mesh peep toe sling backs with large structured bow and slim platform will be yours to dance the night away in. And, they have the all important signature silver sixpence to bring you luck on your special day. Bridesmaid dresses are sorted too, with the wonderful The Bridal Emporium gifting three Claire Elizabeth multiway dresses. These give you complete flexibility to fit in with the vision you have of your day, as on top of being completely versatile fitwise, they also come in 42 different colours, two different textures and two different lengths.

White Rose Cake Design will be responsible for a jaw-dropping (and tummy-satisfying) sponge cake. Whatever your styling ideas for a cake, Jo can make them happen and make them happen better than could ever be imagined: she’s equipped with such amazing artistry and skill that you’ll forget it’s even a cake and just stare at its beauty as a sculpture. (Good news is though, when you dig in, it tastes every bit as good as it looks!)

And there’s so much more too. As for styling, we have your flowers covered by the fabulous The Flower House Ossett, known for their amazing floral creations. Venue styling and set-up is being handled by the uber cool Redamancy Wedding Planning, who manage to transform any theme into a reality, whilst setting your wedding apart from the rest. Mode For… Events will wave the magic wand and co-ordinate all of your suppliers, meaning that not only is this prize cash-free, but it’s stress-free too.

Mix & Twist Bartending will host a cocktail reception for your guests, providing the bar, glassware, set-up, and a professional bartender to make the cocktail of your choice. Songbird Vicky Fee will be providing her “full day” wedding entertainment package, creating the perfect soundtrack to your special day.

Can there possibly be anything else? You cry. You’re already hooked, starry-eyed with the vision of what can be: but hold your horses, because we know no boundaries. The groom and groomsmen will be suited and booted by us, with rentals provided by Yorkshire Menswear, and Dick Beau taking care of bow ties for every personality. As a precursor, Victoria Edwards Make-Up is offering a free bridal trial, to give you an idea of what you would like on the day (including products to keep it there for the rest of the day!), including advice and tips. Emily Burton Hair Creations will be on hand to provide hair and make up on for the beautiful bride and bridesmaids on the day itself, whilst accessories are plentiful and provided by some of the best in the business. Sash & Veil will be providing you with a bespoke veil and garter, Glitter & Grace will be offering the bride’s headdress and matching jewellery, and The Bobby Pin will be providing a beautiful necklace and earrings for you to slip into in the evening for an alternative look. Extra Special Touch will be gifting personalised hankies for the bridal party, including the couple and their family for the perfect memento. Savon Claire are also taking care of wedding favours, with a personalised label to make it truly special.

This competition is all about you guys, and giving back the insane love you’ve shown us over the past few years. We want to be able to give you the day you’ve only ever dreamed of, and are so proud of what we’re able to offer. We’ve never been more excited – just to emphasise that one more time, this competition is really exciting—and can’t wait to share this with all of you! The names included speak for themselves – so why not make it your name that wins this all? Simply comment on the competition post, and the comment with the most likes is the winner. Easy as pie! The terms and conditions are all online here, we wish you the best of luck, and can’t wait to be a part of your special day.
