Help Laura & Owen Get Hitched!

Hi! We are a group of friends raising money so that our dear friends Laura and Owen can have their dream wedding. 

This gorgeous couple met the Christmas before lockdown and in the space of a few short months fell madly in love and moved in together. Not long afterwards Owen was diagnosed with colon and liver cancers. Shortly after that, Laura found out she was pregnant with their first baby! 2020 was a heck of a year!

Luna Hope was born in December 2020 and Owen proposed in the delivery suite. Very shortly after that they were given the devastating news that the treatment of his cancers wasn't working and there was no more they could do, except look for clinical trials.

This BBC segment on their story filmed in December shows their heartbreaking and hopeful story, and what a beautiful little family they are.

They will marry on May 17th, which means they don't have much time to arrange their dream wedding.  Because of Covid restrictions many of their friends will be unable to attend and the wedding will be small... but we are determined it will be fabulous!!!

We initially thought of asking wedding suppliers to gift their services but we realise that times have been tough for this industry. So this is where we can all help! 

Please donate to help fund their dream wedding, and give wedding suppliers some much needed income after a very tough year. 

We are so determined that this day is as special as possible, and creates the happiest of memories. Anything you can give is a gift of love. Thank you so much xx
