I’m a little late sharing this but I still wanted to send our love & show our support for the wedding industry; our amazing friends who are also suppliers and also our wonderful brides. 💕

“🌎 WILL YOU PLEASE STAND. 🌍
Today we ask our global community to please post this image, and all join together across social media to stand up for weddings.
Stand up for weddings. Stand up for engaged couples. Stand up for suppliers and venues. Stand up for creatives. Stand up for culture. Stand up for society. Stand up for artists. Stand up for your friends or family.
The global wedding industry employs millions of people in every corner of the world. It is dominated by female led businesses who contribute billions to economies. It creates millions of memories in the minds and hearts of people in every part of society.
In most countries we are still heavily restricted or banned from working during the pandemic. In the U.K. we have been closed in all but name since March 2020 without any meaningful or targeted financial support. Couples have not been told when they can marry again, or in what capacity.
We ask our leaders for financial support and guidance on reopening. We must not lose our talent. We must not lose livelihoods. We must not forget the importance of love and commitment.
Will you and all your followers please stand. Encourage others to join in. Tag your guests and supplies, your colleagues and your friends. Tell your story. Let’s ensure we are seen and heard.
STAND UP. Stand up for weddings. 💕
