Rosewood London has partnered with luxury wedding company Bridelux and leading wedding suppliers to offer a complimentary once-in-a-lifetime wedding for one deserving couple, working as key workers, NHS staff or carers during the current COVID-19 crisis.
Nearly 30 suppliers from florists to cake makers, and stationery to styling have kindly donated their time and expertise to create the wedding of a lifetime for the chosen couple, worth over GBP 100,000 (USD 124664.00).
The wedding for the bride, groom and up to 150 guests will be held in the grand ballroom at the hotel, which has catered for numerous VIP weddings, events and parties. The couple will stay in one of the hotel’s top suites for their wedding night, with breakfast served in the morning.
This initiative forms part of Rosewood Raise, a relief initiative launched by Rosewood Hotel Group developed in support of the group’s staff who have been impacted by COVID-19, as well as the communities in which the group operates. The relief initiative includes donating hotel rooms and meal preparation and supplies for essential workers.
Other initiatives include the Hospitality4Heroes Social Challenge, where managing director Michael Bonsor aims to raise GBP 10,000 (USD 12466.40) to support the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Appeal, while head chef of Holborn Dining Room, Calum Franklin and his team have been cooking hearty pies and meals for NHS staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital, a charity the hotel has supported for many years.
