Video Blog from Wedding Saviours Hamilton-Niagara

We are launching a “Wedding Saviours Hamilton-Niagara” Team consisting of local Wedding Service Providers/Vendors/Suppliers who are coming together to donate Products or Services and organize a “Free Wedding Contest” to a couple in need. There have already been other successful chapters covered by the Media in Halton-Peel, Toronto, and Kitchener-Waterloo and we are launching the new Hamilton-Niagara Contest. Media sponsors already include Snap Newspapers, but our plan is to secure coverage with other Media outlets such as CHCH Television, Spectator, Post, and Wedding Industry Publications.

Wedding Saviours was founded by Brenda Holdsworth and Jane Dayus-Hinch (Celebrity Wedding Planner from the Television Show, “Wedding SOS”). The goal is to give couples who are unable to afford their own wedding, an opportunity to be part of a Contest that enables them to rally community support, organize food drives that “pays it forward” to a local Food Bank, in order to qualify. Other chapters have already provided (or are providing) complimentary Weddings, and our plan is to do the same for Hamilton-Niagara:

We are reaching out to community-minded “Restaurant/Dining Partners” who may wish to donate at least “ONE” Dining Experience for a “Table of Eight People” at the Winning Couple’s Wedding. (We anticipate that there could be up to 10 tables, and therefore up to a maximum of 10 participating Restaurant/Dining Partners.)

We are also reaching out to other Businesses in categories such as Catering, Décor, Favours, Financial Services, Flowers, Gowns, Health & Beauty (Hair, Makeup), Honeymoon, Hotels & Accommodations, Jewellery, Musicians, Parties & Stags, Photographers, Services – Legal, Services – Realty, Videographers, Wedding Attire, Wedding Cakes, Wedding Planners, etc.

We would give recognition not only at the event, but in all Press (Television/Newspaper) and Social Media Opportunities.

My own company, danceScape, is donating “Wedding Dance Lessons”, as well as the Location/Facility for the Wedding here in downtown Burlington. We are anticipating running the official contest in December and having the actual Wedding in March or April (a Friday or Sunday) based on Team Feedback.

As Hamilton-Niagara Team Leaders, we would work with participating businesses to secure joint Press/Media/Television coverage through an interactive online Contest conducted through directory as well as Social Media Marketing Awareness and Promotion. As well, we would plan Business Networking and Lead Generation Opportunities through the Wedding Saviours Online Team Directory.

If you could kindly advise if there is a specific Community Relations or Marketing Manager/Director with whom I could connect to provide more details, would sincerely appreciate.

Best Regards,
