To say the response has been good would be the understatement of all understatements! I have never been so touched, moved and humbled! There are parents nominating their children - sisters nominating one another; cousins and in some instances almost strangers! I cannot wait to share some of the stories! The selection committee has their work cut out for them that is for sure....if it were up to me, I would grant them all of course - and who knows? perhaps over time we will indeed be able to do so. But for this event we can only select 10. ONLY ten, she says like that's a small number :)
The response from vendors has been equally as humbling - within minutes of the story airing on Channel 4 my phone quite literally lit up with emails, texts and missed calls. We have been very fortunate to have so many wanting to be part of something so magic and inspiring.
In less than one month - 20 days to be exact - we will be notifying our lucky couples of what is in store for them. I wonder if they have any idea of what we've been able to accomplish so far - and it's no one person - it's the work of many individuals inspired to give what they can to make a dream come true.
If you know of a couple who has given up hope of their dream wedding, we are still taking nominations. Use this link to nominate them:
