Local businesses step in to support key worker couples getting married

North Lincolnshire based video production company, KNOW and wedding photographer, Flawless Photography have teamed up to support deserving key workers by giving away £9,000 worth of wedding packages to two couples.

Pete Hewes, Creative Director at KNOW, said:

“We have been monitoring the current situation closely and wanted to use our skills in a way to give something back and thought we could offer something through our old wedding brand, The Cine Collective. We recently retired from wedding cinematography, however we decided to come out of wedding retirement and teamed up with James Revitt from Flawless photography. We had heard stories of weddings being cancelled and NHS workers struggling financially with rebooking so we wanted to step in and help relieve them of the financial pressures of paying a photographer and videographer; two of the biggest expenses at a wedding. This way their memories are captured forever by a team of professionals.

“Originally we were going to give one package away. However, we received over 100 nominations and it was really difficult to choose. Reading through them all had us in tears but there were two nominations that really stood out. One was a paediatric nurse who was going above and beyond outside of her comfort zone in an adult intensive care ward and also her husband-to-be is in the RAF coordinating supplies of PPE. The other nomination was a cancer nurse who has volunteered in a COVID-19 ward to help out. She regularly takes time to Skype her cancer patients though to see how they are doing, giving them messages of support.”
