Lula Mai Big Day: Military wives to host a unique wedding in Oxfordshire

Jelly Rose is pleased to support this charity wedding. Thank you to the director, Rachel Williams, for allowing me to share the details on my family lifestyle blog.

Military wives to host a unique wedding in Oxfordshire

Lula Mai Events, in partnership with Witney Lake Resorts, are hosting a wedding on April 3rd 2015 at the Resort for a deserving couple from a military or emergency services background. 

Lula Mai Events is a team of military wives, based at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, specialising in wedding & event planning, and supplying goods & services to facilitate this. In January 2014, they took the decision to put on a wedding for a couple from the military or emergency services background and launched Lula Mai - The Big Day. 

Who can apply? 

The opportunity is open to anyone within the military (tri-service, Police Force, Fire or Ambulance Service, including Air Ambulance) that holds a valid ID or service number. As these are retained for life, it is open to retired members also. 

For further information or to request an application form, please email

The closing date for applications is 14th June 2014.
