Eskmills Venue, an award-winning wedding venue just outside Edinburgh, has teamed up with its suppliers to offer NHS Scotland frontline clinical workers the chance to win an all-inclusive wedding, worth around £12,000.

The competition to win the wedding, which will take place on Friday 12th February 2021, has been set up as a way of giving something back to the nurses, care assistants, doctors and other health practitioners currently risking their lives on a daily basis as they help and treat Covid 19 patients. It has been launched by award-winning caterers Hickory, the company that manages Eskmills Venue and a portfolio of venues.

The prize offers the winning couple exclusive use of Eskmills Venue, a converted riverside mill building in Musselburgh, for 80 day guests and an additional 40 evening guests. The prize includes drinks, canapes, a 3-course wedding meal, a live band and a photographer.

Also included is photography and videography from Tony Marsh Photography, classic wedding car from Edinburgh Classic Wedding Cars, a wedding dress from Christina Rae, a bagpiper from GD Bagpiping, kilt hire from 8 Yards, stationery from 2Flux Stationery Studio, flowers from Liberty Blooms, and a 3-tier wedding cake from Truly Scrumptious

Any NHS Scotland hospital-based health practitioners planning to get married are invited to enter the prize draw HERE.  It’s an easy online form and entrants just need to provide contact details and a photo of their NHS staff ID.

The wedding winner will be announced on 14th May.

Stephanie Stubbs, Deputy Managing Director of Hickory, said: “We want to honour the amazing NHS frontline teams who are so committed all year round and particularly at the moment.

“We think they deserve something to look forward to, and so we came up with the idea of offering a free wedding at one of our flagship venues complete with all the trimmings.

“We approached our brilliant suppliers and together we have organised everything from flowers and photograph, to kilts and stationery to give one NHS Scotland health worker their dream wedding day without them having to lift a finger – it’s the least we can do to say thank you!”
