Our winning couple Victoria Emmerson & Luke Hastings knocked back a a coffee or two, (how else do you face a 5am start? 🥱) and spent their morning being showbiz darlings on BBC Breakfast to share their story, and talk about #WhatAboutWeddings.
'The #WhatAboutWeddings Campaign highlights awareness for the critical need for assistance and clarity for both the £14.7bn, seasonal wedding sector, as it navigates the issues and complexities of pandemic restrictions, and the half a million couples who are now waiting for restrictions to ease so that they can get married.'

Back in - the year that shall not be named 😂 - , we put together a competition open to only to people who worked in the NHS. To act as a small token of our appreciation, a group of fabulous suppliers from the Unveiled Network came together to offer their services to reward one lucky couple with the incredible badass wedding of their dreams at Charlton Hall.
Victoria has worked tirelessly for the NHS in A&E at The Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle tackling rising COVID cases in the North East. Even though Victoria suffers from degenerative eye disease that is slowly taking her sight, one of the main reasons she was nominated multiple times by family and friends, is that Victoria’s mother, Ann, has Huntington's disease.
This year has taught us that your world really can flip on a a dime, and so experiencing and capturing celebratory moments is more important than ever. After what seems like hundreds of lockdowns and date reschedules, we're back on track with a new date, can't wait to capture Victoria & Luke's most special day with all of their friends and family around them.
Us loving life at Charlton Hall :).
