One lucky Norfolk couple who have put their wedding on hold to look after others during the covid-19 pandemic are being offered a chance to win their dream day, thanks to a group of local businesses.

Companies from all over Norfolk have joined together to offer a couple of key workers a wedding to remember – with invitations, flowers, the gown and bridesmaid’s dresses, stylish transport, make-up and hair, a fabulous cake, photographs… even entertainment including a singer and a magician to make the day truly magical.

The ceremony itself will take place at Thursford Garden Pavilion and will include a romantic night in the Holly Lodge Guest House and be tailor-made to the couple’s taste.

The competition was the idea of Amelia Hacking, whose Capture Lounge company provides photo booths for weddings and special occasions. She contacted 30 businesses who were only too keen to add their services to make up a prize worth around £25,000.

An engaged key worker couple could be in line for the wedding of a lifetime, thanks to a group of Norfolk businesses.

One, Charlotte Staff, of Charlotte Staff Flowers, said: “She wanted to put something together from our industry to say a huge thank-you to one lucky engaged Norfolk key worker couple who have put their own lives on the line by keeping on working during the pandemic.

“I think we all felt the same as she did and jumped at the opportunity to give something back!”

To be in with a chance, couples need to be key workers who are already engaged and living in Norfolk. They can be nominated, or can nominate themselves, and the organisers have used the government guidelines on who is classed as a key worker so that no sector is missed out.

The competition will be judged on the couple’s background story, saying why they deserve the prize. It won’t be judged on the number of nominations but nominate as many as you think might deserve it.
