World and his wife at wedding party?

HASTINGS will be playing host to possibly the biggest wedding reception in the world next week.

George Watts, the UK’s official Wedding Fairy, launches National Wedding Day across the UK with the launch party being hosted by New Style Events at The Stade Open Space on Wednesday, August 1 from noon to 7pm.

Jo Brazier, from New Style Events, said: “All the vital elements will be covered with a twist, to raise funds for Cancer Research UK, with live music, entertainment, dancing, exhibitors and a host of other elements happening throughout the day.

“There will also be a catwalk show, which will take place throughout the day with models wearing clothes from the local CRUK shop and will be available to buy on the day.” Everyone who comes to next Wednesday’s fundraiser will have the chance to buy a pink ribbon and write a personal message, which will then be pinned, to a bride’s wedding dress.

Jo added: “This visual gesture is a way of reminding everyone exactly what the event is for and hopefully by the end of the day, our wedding dress will be covered in messages of hope. It doesn’t matter whether you were hitched years ago, or getting married tomorrow, planning a civil partnership or got married abroad, everyone is invited to this wedding reception with a difference, to celebrate those nuptials all over again.”

Jo recently organised a Pink Moon Auction with George Watts, which raised money for Cancer Research UK.
