With all of the chaos, sadness, and hateful manifestation of opposing views that we see around us, it is nice to report on a positive story; especially today, Sunday 14th Feb.
London Ambulance Service Paramedic Paige Stride first met PC Rob Wilkins, who serves with the Metropolitan Police, three years ago during the early hours of the morning when they responded to an incident in a chicken shop.
And last year, during the height of the pandemic, whilst working hard on the front line of the fight against covid, the two emergency workers got engaged.
Thanks to Regent’s Conferences & Events’ generosity, they have just been told that they have won their dream wedding; to be held once the current Covid restrictions are eased.
The couple were nominated for their ‘extraordinary hard work during these incredibly tough and challenging times’.
Talking about the news, the happy couple said:
“Winning and being recognised as deserving such an incredibly special venue for the day, we can’t believe we get to marry so close to where we met, in front of all of our colleagues and family.”

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
