My story

Gift of a Wedding is a charity that I have been involved with over the years. As you all know I am a wedding hair stylist so I have had the amazing experience of providing this service for the amazing couples that Gift of a Wedding support. I have met some truly incredible and inspirational people who have sadly now passed away.

Weddings are an occasion that bring so much happiness to people, and its an industry I feel lucky to be involved in, so when you have the opportunity to give something back and be a part of an occasion that brings people so much joy in the moment.

During September I will be walking one mile a day to help support the charity. This is the only fundraiser the charity has been able to run this year due to COVID.

Gift of a Wedding help terminally-ill ladies/gentleman get married or renew their vows by suppliers across the wedding industry gifting their services, Gift of a Wedding then put it all together so couples can have their special days.

About Gift of a Wedding

Quite simply, our charity is about bringing joy, love and happiness to those with a terminal or life-shortening illness. We do this by gifting weddings and vow renewals with the help of the generous wedding industry and gifted volunteers all around the UK.

The idea for Gift of a Wedding started in 2012 when our founder and wedding planner at the time, Patricia Harrison, was approached by a young man aged 27 who had recently discovered that he was terminally-ill with brain cancer. Patricia and several other suppliers donated their services free of charge to put together the perfect wedding for this young man and his partner.

After realising that his case was not unique, Patricia set out researching the possibility of starting a charity that had the sole purpose of gifting weddings to terminally ill people in the UK. In 2013, Patricia made the charity her main mission and together with her team of dedicated volunteers has gifted over 200 weddings since.
