If you didn’t know already we love a good wedding here at Tower Bridge and we were lucky enough to give one away, free of charge to a lucky couple!
We were inundated with countless emails, tweets, Facebook messages and Instagram posts from loved-up couples with touching stories to tell which made us wish we could host weddings for every single one.
But there could only be one winner, so without further ado we’re very proud to announce that we have chosen John Paul and his partner, Antonio as the winners of our wedding competition after receiving this touching entry:
“Antonio and I met where he used to work, when I was holiday in Spain and it was love at first sight. We just knew it then and he eventually decided to move to London to be with me.
When he arrived, he fell in love with London and we both decided to choose a place to live that was fairly close (E1) to an iconic London landmark. As we’re both Engineers, the bridge was the perfect choice as it amazes us with its beautiful steel framework, magnificent hydraulics, decoration and history, which we’re lucky to witness every day.
Why should we win? Because we have both always wanted to celebrate and mark our relationship with a beautiful wedding amongst family and friends but the simple reason why we can’t is MONEY! London is stunning but an expensive place to live and that makes it even harder to save up for the wedding we’ve always dreamt of.
To win would mean the world to us… as I type this message I dream about it. I doubt we’d ever be picked but if we did it would make the most important day of our lives a lot more special.”
We’d like to say a massive congratulations to John Paul and Antonio on behalf of all of our suppliers and the Tower Bridge team on winning and we can’t wait to help you plan your dream wedding at our venue.
Our brilliant events team will be keeping everyone at home updated with everything from the planning, to the big day on our social media channels so we’d love for you to come along for the journey!
