Across the globe, healthcare personnel has been working tirelessly to combat the spread of COVID-19. And now, one luxury hotel is hoping to show its gratitude by offering a magical day for one of those workers.

Rosewood London, an American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts property, has partnered with luxury wedding company Bridelux to throw a dream wedding for a couple who've been working as NHS staff members or carers during the pandemic. The famed five star London hotel partnered with almost 30 vendors like florists and bakers to photographers and caterers to create a once-in-a-lifetime event held in the grand ballroom worth over £100,000 ($124,000). And there's even a magician.

The bride and groom can invite up 150 guests and will stay in one of the property's top suites for their wedding night, where breakfast will be served in the morning.

"In these uncertain times, I am very proud of the UK wedding industry to pull together to create this phenomenal wedding for key workers," said Bridelux CEO James Lord, who founded the initiative, in a statement. "Everyone jumped at the idea. It's the least we all could do to give something back."

This is just the latest initiative from Rosewood Hotel Group's Rosewood Raise that aims to support the group's staff and communities affected by coronavirus. So far, the organization has donated hotel rooms and provided meals and supplies for essential workers.

"Rosewood London is delighted to be a partner of this amazing initiative to be able to give back and help NHS staff, carers and key workers who have been working so hard to keep us all safe in these exceptional times," said Michael Bonsor, managing director of Rosewood London, in a statement. "As a hotel, we have long supported the NHS, and recently, our teams have been working to provide meals to NHS staff. We now look forward to giving one lucky couple a day to remember with their loved ones and friends."
