Celebrating the anniversary of the Royal Wedding, Oxfam are launching a unique online auction offering couples the chance to bid on exclusive items for their big day at a fraction of the retail price.
The online wedding auction will start on April 29 on eBay and run through to May 9. All proceeds from the auction go towards helping those who live in poverty around the world.
The auction will feature one off gifts worth up to £10,000, including wedding gowns by designers such as Sassi Holford, Tammam and Ian Stuart, a wedding hair styling session with celebrity hairdresser Errol Douglass, a fabulous eco-chic Sawday's honeymoon to the Lake District and much more.
The celebrated bridal designer Sassi Holford said: "I've been a long term donor to Oxfam's successful network of bridal shops, so I am thrilled to be able to donate a dress for this exciting online auction. There are some truly amazing items that have been donated and everyone has the opportunity to bid on any (or all!) of them at more affordable prices and with money going to a really worthwhile cause."
Since launching a weddings range Oxfam have raised over £1 million to help change the lives of vulnerable people living in poverty around the world.
The online wedding shop, which launched last year, offers a huge range of items needed for the big day including Oxfam Unwrapped wedding lists and favours that guarantee a life-changing difference for generations to come.
Brides-to-be can also visit one of their 11 bridal boutiques to buy dream designer and vintage dresses, all for bargain prices. The online shop also includes a special ethical 100% silver jewellery line, including elegant bracelets, necklaces and earrings.
