The Wedding of Christopher and Georgina took place on Wednesday 31st August 2011 after they were winners of the Ella’s Memory Dream Wedding Competition, December 2010.
This was my idea to help raise money and awareness of a local charity, Ella’s Memory. Ella’s Memory has been established by Martyn and Emmillie Selley, in memory of their beautiful daughter, Ella who was stillborn. The aim of Ella’s Memory is to help parents of still born babies compile their own memories of their beautiful babies in comfortable surroundings. The competition was to win a Dream Wedding including a number of generous donations from local companies exceeding £16,000, below are a full list of details.
