The first charity partner

In addition, Bride: The Wedding Show has announced its first charity partnership with Cheshire-based Gift of a Wedding.

Set up in 2012 by wedding planner Patricia Harrison, Gift of a Wedding has the sole purpose of gifting weddings to terminally ill people in the UK.

With a dedicated team of volunteers alongside generous wedding suppliers donating products and services, they have managed to provide a dream wedding for more than 200 couples with precious time left together.

Patricia said: “Since setting up the charity, Gift of a Wedding has been the most fulfilling and challenging thing I have ever had the pleasure of doing.

"The charity would not be able to do its wonderful work without the support of its fantastic team of volunteers and the thousands of UK wedding professionals who gift their time and skills each year to make sure we keep our promise to fulfil wedding dreams and create some unforgettable memories.

“It is an honour and a pleasure to create this unbelievably special charity for some extremely deserving people and we are delighted to be partner with Bride: The Wedding Show 2020 at Tatton.”
