Our Patrons

The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation gratefully acknowledges support from our patrons for their very generous support during 2012, 2013 & 2014.

Since the start of the foundation, our patrons' generosity has been critical to our

development, exposure & growth.

We thank them for their ongoing support.

Oliver has also been in the period Drama Mr Selfridge, as well as many theatre productions.

Heidi Watson

Heidi is the Account Manager for the Dorset Wiltshire & Hampshire Bride Magazine as well as organiser of the Bride Wedding Show which is held twice a year at Westpoint Exeter. She has been a big supporter of the charity since we started in 2012.

Chris Dooley

This photo is of Chris on his wedding day in December 2011.

Just 3 short month later his wife Claire passed away she was just 30 years old.

Claire was someone I knew from on line cancer forums, and although I never had the priviledge to meet her she was one of my reasons for setting up The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation

Chris knows first hand what it is like to to live with cancer every day in a relationship and just how important it is to some to marry when the know the end is getting closer.

Chris has accepted our invitation to be our patron and we really look forward to working with him and leaving a legacy for his beautiful wife.

The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation

Jo Rowley - Hertfordshire

Jo has been a fundraiser since Spring last year when she held the competition Win A Hertfordshire Wedding.

Her dedication to the charity since then has been second to none. Having her own events company means that Jo has many contacts in the Herts & Beds area which will no doubt come in handy when organising future weddings and events.

We are thrilled to have Jo on the team.

Louise Baker - Derbyshire

Louise has been a real asset to the charity for many years now.

As a very talented writer she has helped to write press releases, speeches and website content for the charity.

She also helped Naomi to write her book No Ordinary Wedding Planner back in 2014.

Louise & her husband Adam have also raised money for the charity by taking part in running events where they live in Derbyshire. A real achievement as they both class themselves as "non runners"

Caroline Searle - Hampshire

From 5km to 26 miles there is no distance that Caroline won’t run in aid of The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation; this amazing lady has tackled everything from shorter distance 5km runs to the London and Yorkshire marathons earlier this year, as well as completing the 10km Great West Run and Great South Run in the space of a single week. If she can run it, Caroline is there! We are so grateful to have Caroline on board as an ambassador; whether she’s running, representing our cause at a wedding fair, or organising people in a Bake Off style competition, Caroline's hard work and dedication to the charity is unending.

Emma Tanner - Dorset

I am sure you will all agree that we have got some fantastic

supporters this year!
