The competition was organised by Thorpe-le-Soken-based florist and venue stylist Rosie Obeney of Rose Decor Styling – – who wanted to give something back to NHS staff working throughout the pandemic. "I have a big list of amazing people I love to work with in the industry, so I put the feelers out and the response was incredible," she says. "I was inundated with amazing businesses offering up their services to one lucky couple."

In total 26 multi-award-winning Essex wedding suppliers teamed up, from the photography and videography right down to flowers, bridal hair and outfits. Held at Tuffon Hall Vineyard on 3rd March, 2022, Natalie and Mark were gifted wedding stationery, catering, decorations, transport, entertainment, occasion wear and more.

"Our wedding day was perfect from beginning to end," say the newlyweds. "We are so incredibly grateful for all of the suppliers coming together to give us this unbelievable gift, and making our wedding day so special."

WANT TO SEE THEIR INCREDIBLE DAY? Look out for the couple's fantastic wedding, exclusive to An Essex Wedding, in our July/August issue, available from June, 2022.
