Marlow’s Diamonds, who has donated a set of platinum and palladium wedding bands to the couple, at a value of approximately £800

Crowdfunded wedding, The Alternative Wedding, has almost been entirely funded by donations and sponsorships. The couple have now received their wedding bands, as donated by Marlow’s Diamonds.

When Hannan and Danielle got engaged in 2013, the prospect of a wedding seemed quite difficult. Hannan and Danielle are the founders of a not-for-profit company and a registered charity, respectively. Despite working more than 80 hours a week between them, their household income is less than £10k per annum, making a traditional wedding difficult to fund. As a result, the couple began appealing to relevant companies for samples, seconds and surplus stock to put towards their big day. With the wedding set for Danielle’s 29th birthday, April 29th 2015, this unconventional Alternative Wedding has received over £10,000 in donations and products, entirely been funded by the generosity of others.

One of those sponsors is Marlow’s Diamonds, who has donated a set of platinum and palladium wedding bands to the couple, at a value of approximately £800. “We absolutely were overwhelmed with the response we got, and the generosity of the companies that we spoke to,” the couple said in a statement on their website. With just two weeks until the big day, the couple are keeping their sponsors informed via Twitter. “It doesn't seem real,” the couple announced after receiving their wedding rings, which you can view here. “We are getting very excited here and so looking forward to it!!”

Marlow’s Diamonds, diamond specialists and the company donating the wedding rings, takes a keen interest in unique weddings such as this. A spokesperson for the company has commented on the wedding, saying: “When we heard of Hannan and Danielle’s work and their problem in funding their wedding we were more than happy to lend a hand. Nobody should be without high quality wedding bands on their big day, especially when they have put so much time and effort into helping other people. We would like to extend our congratulations to Hannan and Danielle once more, and to wish them luck with the weather on their big day.”
