With such awesome credentials and backing how could we at Lennox Weddings and events not be involved? Especially when Kath Murphy, our very own Collective member and celebrant is the head co-ordinator of the Northern region. We were beyond proud to become one of the generous and awesome Wedding Wish Suppliers, who without the work that My Wedding Wish does would never be possible. Like all the “Wish Suppliers” our collective is happy to provide our services and products completely free of charge, giving up our own time, products and expenses to help provide amazing weddings for the terminally ill.
