APP’s first purple wedding took place on 2nd January 2013, when Jo Thorpe married Will Grace at Holdsworth House in Halifax, West Yorkshire. After recovering from PP in 2010, Jo married her partner Will, whom she met whilst they played music together in a band, with their beautiful daughter, Marya, as a bridesmaid. With purple ties, purple flowers, purple jewellery, purple bridesmaids and a purple wedding cake it made a spectacular purple party! Even some guests showed support by dressing in purple too. It was a very special day, with many friends and family who travelled from far and wide.
Due to their PP experience, she and Will are passionate about the work of APP and decided to raise funds with a donation to APP instead of providing wedding favours. On the wedding tables they placed printed cards with the message “To celebrate the marriage of Will and Jo on the 2nd January 2013, a donation has been made to Action on Postpartum Psychosis, a charity close to our hearts”. Jo and Will also received a generous wedding gift of a cheque to APP. We would like to thank Jo, Will and their friends and family for their generosity and thinking of us on their special day. Congratulations to you both and wishing you all the best in the future!
