Wonderful Wedding Wednesday • Share to show you care •
Last week I was overwhelmed with the feedback from my post about The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation.
You can read it here.
It detailed my visit to meet the founder of the charity and highlighted her own battle with cancer. Some of you may not have realised she is fighting this horrible disease and definitely may not have realised that Naomi will not be able to beat her cancer.
I was blown away by all the lovely comments and lots of lovely readers donating their £1 to help. And then something extraordinary happened.
I had mentioned in the post that I will be following the Foundation's next wedding, which will take place in Bristol, as a behind the scenes, series of posts. And a message popped up from the bride!
Initially, I had imagined the posts would cover the wedding from the Foundation's point of view, how they decide from the many applications who they help, how they find a venue, how they coordinate all the suppliers, to give a couple the wedding of their dreams. But I am so thrilled to say you will be able to follow the journey from both sides!
The bride is going to share some thoughts on my blog which I hope will be a wonderful reminder for them in the future.
I have sent her some questions which I hope to share next Wednesday, so for today, that is the theme, sharing.
I can't expect my loyal readers to donate each and every week, so what I would like to ask today is that you share this post. However you like. Share it on Facebook, share it on Twitter, share it on Pinterest, email or tell a friend to go on the internet and read it. And ask your friends and followers to learn a little more about the work of The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation.
Maybe they will feel compelled to donate £1.
In the meantime, an old school friend, Damien, who was at St George's College sixth form with Richard and I, is happy to share a few of his beautiful wedding photographs, to his even more beautiful bride Irena.
After getting engaged in Marrakech, they married in Prague and currently live in Guildford with their sweet daughter Eleanor. Damien is a pilot for British Airways so we always look out for him when we fly!
It is so wonderful when someone you haven't seen since you were 17 is happy to share their wedding photographs to support a charity. The magic of sharing a story.
I love that I can spot a good few of the boys we went to school with in this photo!
Do your good deed of the day and show you care, go forth and share!
ps. how cute is their little one?!
