The Wedding Industry Awards
This was my first time dipping my toe into The Wedding Industry Awards pool, but what an amazing experience it was. I’d been to the regional awards night last year to support Jess in her quest for world domination, so I kinda knew what to expect from the whole process, but nothing prepared me for how nervous I was going to feel about it all! For those that aren’t too familiar with The Wedding Industry Awards, let me break it down for you.
Wedding industry vendors and suppliers from all over the country enter their respective categories which are judged on a regional level. If you win your region, you go through to The Wedding Industry Awards national finals, with a chance at winning the prestigious gong of ‘Best in the UK’ at your chosen field. The judging process breaks down every element of your business, from your online presence to your style of work. But the main thing for me was the fact that your couples get to vote for you and provide some feedback on how you contributed to their day. Cue big gulp from me!
To say I was blown away by the words I received from my couples is the understatement of the century. I know it sounds cheesy, but my couples really do get everything I’ve got on their wedding day. So to receive the feedback I did was pretty overwhelming. There *might* have been a tear or two shed. I can neither confirm nor deny this vicious rumour! 😉 I didn’t even win my region, but to be a finalist alongside some truly amazing photographers was amazing.
So, I wanted to share with you some of the amazing words I received and to say a very public thank you to each and every one of them. But my thanks don’t just go to them. I have to thank everyone else who has been a part of this amazing journey. Everyone who has recommended me to their friends, family or clients. Everyone who has supported and guided me through it. Just…thank you! But to my couples, you guys really are rock stars! I feel so lucky to call this my ‘job’ and being a part of your day is such a special thing. I will never take it for granted, I promise!
Keen to chat to me about having me along for your day? Drop me an email and let’s chat. Okay, that’s enough wheepy babbling from me. Here are what my couples had to say. Thanks all…
