This story is part of our Good News series – bringing you positive headlines every day to spread positivity during difficult times.

Bloom Gin has made a lovely gesture towards anyone who has had to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The London dry gin brand announced that they would be offering free miniature bottles of their popular gin for brides and grooms to give away as wedding favours to all of their guests when they are finally able to have their big day.

Anybody who was supposed to have their wedding day from 16th March (just over two weeks ago) but has had to cancel or postpone because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic can claim the lovely gesture via the brand’s website.

Broadcasting the sweet move on their Instagram page in order to get the move to as many affected couples as possible, the brand wrote, ‘We know that lots of you have had to postpone your big day due to COVID-19.

And while it's no consolation for all the hard work, planning and saving that's gone into arranging your dream wedding, we're offering FREE 5cl BLOOM Gin miniatures as wedding favours for those who have had to move weddings due to take place from 16th March.

‘You might notice that our website states from 30th April,’ they went on to clarify, ‘but we've taken on board the feedback from disappointed brides due to marry earlier than 30th April and our website will be updated to reflect this today’.

The company added that, naturally, only those over the age of 18 can apply and that amazingly they are holding the generous offer all the way until 30th November this year.

We think these gorgeous mint green miniatures would look amazing in any wedding setting - so it's a great deal to claim!

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
