Wedding with Thanks has been designed and organised by Delapré Abbey – to thank and celebrate carers, key and essential workers in Northamptonshire who have gone above and beyond during the coronavirus crisis. Only individuals who are deemed to be a key worker under the UK Governments COVID19 definition can be nominated for this competition.

Many couples have had to put their weddings on hold as the pandemic has swept the globe. That is why we have launched Wedding with Thanks – to give one lucky couple a wedding of their dreams at no cost in 2021.

Nominate yourself, a friend, colleague or family member. One or both of the nominated couple should be a carer, key or essential worker. This is our way of giving back and saying thank you to those who have worked tirelessly to make an extraordinary difference during these challenging times.

Here is a copy of the competitions Terms and Conditions.
