Hi everyone, hope you have all got something good planned for this weekend.

This has been a huge week for me and my company.

We won the National Wedding Industry Award for Best Venue Stylist 2014.

It is difficult to explain what this means but the easiest way is to say it is comparable to being a chef and winning MasterChef.  So it’s a biggie.

The awards are so special in that only brides and grooms that you have worked with over the last 12 months can vote for you, and they comment upon every aspect of your business.  The panel of judges then look at your website, images, social media presence, your position within the wedding industry and all balance this with the personal comments made by your past clients.

So it is not a numbers game, how many votes you had or who you know in the industry – it is a reflection of who you are as a company, what you offer, how you deliver it and how good you are.  Simples.

I did cry.  I did have a few glasses of champagne. I did feel completely overwhelmed with the win and what this means for us going forward.

I can’t think of a better way to start the year.

A thousand thank you’s to Damien and Anna, all the judges and particularly our wonderful clients who have made this the best year yet.
