Bec & Connor's story
The favours at Bec and Connor's wedding were Redkite pins. Redkite supported Connor on his cancer journey and on the most romanic day of their lives, the Finemores asked their guests to donate to Redkite in lieu of gifts

How do I tell my friends and family that we don't want gifts?

instead of gifts I have decided to ask

and send them some money, at this time of year"
