The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation is a new organisation launched in 2012 with a single purpose- organising and funding weddings for terminally ill people. Box Clever Wedding is very happy to be a supplier for this wonderful foundations & looks forward to supporting the 1st of many weddings.
There are many men and women in the UK living with life limiting conditions or terminal illnesses who long to marry their special partner in life.
We, at The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation believe that few things in life can be more important or rewarding, than giving such a person a chance to have their dream wedding day, with all the excitement, love and happiness that brings. As we are fully aware that time can be precious, we are able to organise the arrangements against the clock where required.
We fund raise to ensure that as many costs incurred are covered as possible and we work closely with very generous wedding suppliers who kindly donate their services for free or at a reduced rate.
With their help we can help transform lives and make a real difference. For many families, the memory of a happy wedding day can be a cherished moment. Surrounded by family and friends, enjoying each other’s company and being full of joy and laughter; a wedding day is an occasion where everyone can look back and remember that special event, and smile.
We appreciate that none of this would be possible without our hard work and determination or without our suppliers and service provider’s generosity. These factors are integral to our success and we are constantly striving to ensure the organisation grows and flourishes so we can to provide such a service to all over the coming years.Currently, we are based in Wellington, Somerset and operate locally in the South West area primarily, covering Somerset, Devon, Dorset and Cornwall. But with more fundraising, continued support from generous suppliers and invaluable publicity, we aim to increase exposure to our profile allowing us to take the foundation across the whole of the UK, helping more and more people enjoy the wedding day of their dreams. We are still accepting applications from around the rest of the UK but the south west applicants will get priority.
Should you have table names or numbers at your wedding? You decide really, there is no hard & fast rule as to what you should have & many couple choose name to reflect a part of thier passion & personality.
undecided? When choosing your overall theme for your wedding day is there something that pops out at you? The one above is an example of a bride & grooms choice of retro sweets & there are plenty of those to choose from, if you have a beach theme wedding you could choose tropical Islands, fish or shells. Wild West could be saloons, outlaws or cowboys in film. Just make sure your chosen theme has enough names to cover the amount of tables you have.
Or you could just go for classic numbers in either a, digit, roman numeral or written word.
you don't have to have a matching number/name to your table plan either maybe you could have a complimenting design using mini planters & mini blackboard tags or huge wooden numbers free standing painted in your colours, these are more widely available in the UK now.
Whatever you decide just make sure you are both happy, remember its your day, don't be swayed.
Had some nice comments & interest in the "It's Fete" games & managed to get lots of networking with other businesses, Clair from Travel Counsellors, Mark from Floral Vintage & Pam Flower Chic to name a few.
our lovely new purchase has arrived & she is a beaut!
A dark green & chrome Olympia model very very heavy typewriter I am told is the same one most early typists would have learned their skills on at typing school, this retro chic could bring a lot of nostalgia to your wedding & everyone will want t have a go, a great way for your guests to record wishes to the happy couple.
My 9 year old is facinated with it so I have to buy her one now too!
both the cases have now been cleaned & restored the big black beauty needed little work as still had origonal lining, lift out tray & key!
Our mini case was the more challenging one, most of the interior was ripped out & rotten. Inside the original red taffeta lining on lid was all that remained but was so rotten had to come out too, the gold leaf name was Pittman Brothers of London so some history with this one, first I had to match the leather & hand stitch a new handle, I did manage to rescue the bridge from this, then I made a cushioned interior of white taffeta & gave it a lovely polish to bring out the shine.
I loved restoring this suitcase! do you know what? I bought another 2 today that need some TLC so will be a busy bee getting those ready!
so lovely to see orinonal lining & lift out tray!
This one has a crown & initials R.C but the inside is a complete mess, well worth a do up though. will keep you posted on progress
Wow website is up & running great!
On here I will be sharing my latest creations just got to get to grips with it all now! So this is just to say Hi There, can't wait to serve you.
