A wedding venue in Northampton has launched a competition to give a key worker couple their dream day.
Delapré Abbey wants to thank and celebrate key and essential workers who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic.
The ‘Wedding with Thanks’ giveaway will grant one couple, made up of at least one key worker, the opportunity to say ‘I do’ in the Bouverie Suite at the historic home.
Many other elements of the big day will also be included in the package and will be provided by local businesses.
Richard Clinton, chief executive at Delapré Abbey, said: “Romance is most certainly alive here in Northamptonshire.
“We have had scores of wedding enquiries in the last two months from couples looking beyond COVID-19 who are wanting to start planning and booking.
“Many couples have had to put their weddings on hold, so 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.”
The wedding package will include a three-course meal for up to 70 people, courtesy of Tom Hewer Catering, as well as wedding rings from Michael Jones Jewellery.
Photography by Sky Photography, a Gardners Bakery three-tier cake, wedding stationary by Tangerine Red and a hair stylist from Seckingtons for the bride, will also be included.
Additionally, flowers and styling will be provided by Florry and Forevermore events, as well as a DJ from Potter Group events and a 90-minute set from a wedding band courtesy of White Room.
Richard added: "At Delapré Abbey we are passionate about supporting and working closely with the local community – and encourage friends and families to enjoy the grounds, share our facilities, join us and be part of our future.
“We are not just a historic home – the Abbey is here to add wellbeing, culture, and heritage to everyone’s lives. And of course, weddings.”
The couple must live in Northamptonshire and at least one must be a key or essential worker.
