Okay so yeah, sure – You could say that we are a little bit chuffed!!! As if our year couldn’t get any better??! Not only have the team and I enjoyed a record few months at the shop and then boogied our pants off at the amazing charity party that we threw at Prested Hall where we raised a tonne of cash for the Help for Heroes charity but we’ve just had some more awesome news….
The team and I are well known for entering awards competitions and this year we thought, why not? Let’s go for it and enter The Wedding Ideas Mag awards. We haven’t entered them before so we decided it was about time that we did so and anyway I watched the party stream live last year and though ‘Hmmm, that looks like a LOT of fun, we must enter, we must go!’
So the Wedding Ideas Team hold totally totally fab do in London where the cream of the crop get together and celebrate excellence in the wedding industry, it takes place in January and it’s when the winners will be announced. In order to make the finals you have to persuade your customers and business friends to place a vote for you online. So we launched a ‘Vote For Us’ campaign via Facebook and twitter last month and I understand from my team that all sorts of pleading, emotional blackmailing and nagging took place via e-mail … lol ….. Well, we’re delighted to say that it was all very much worth while because enough of you thought we were worth a vote and this sees us proudly sitting in the top 6 bridal shops now competing for the UK’s ‘Best Bridal Retailer’ title. How absolutely fantabulous is that???
The next step is the judging process during which we shall no doubt be placed under all sorts of secret scrutiny! We’re looking forward to it and I can’t wait to celebrate (win or lose) with a great media team, other great bridal shops and businesses and with my wonderful team at Abigail’s Collection & The Groom’s Room… Well done Guys, am really proud and a MASSIVE THANK YOU if you voted for us. It means a huge amount to us all, lots of love! xx
