What an Autumn this has been! We celebrated our 5th Birthday in September by doing what we always do – helping brides and grooms find their dream dress and dapper suits. We also celebrated our 1st Birthday in our bigger and better new premises, AND, we were nominated for not 1 but 3 prestigious awards…
We were thrilled to hear that not only had we been nominated but that we won ‘Wedding Boutique of the Year 2016’ in the East Region at the English Wedding Awards 2016. These awards recognise the efforts and dedication of suppliers within the wedding industry across England. It’s brilliant to be winners and although we couldn’t make the actual awards ceremony our certificate still takes pride of place!
Our customers then also nominated us for the Best Bridal Retailer and Best Menswear Supplier in the The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) 2017. We were really pleased to reach the Regional Final, in both categories, but obviously disappointed not to win! However, to reach the final is great achievement in itself and it has also enabled us to see lots of fabulous feedback our customers wrote about us to TWIA which has been so wonderful to read.
We also reached the final of the Peterborough Telegraph Business Awards 2016 in the category for Best Customer Service and at the award ceremony on Friday 25th November we were presented with the Winners Award! – Back of the net! We were interviewed for this by 2 judges who are respected business people from the town. We were also filmed in the gallery so it was quite an intense process!
So, as you can see November has been a busy and rewarding month and our ‘awards faces’ (remember Joey in Friends?!) have been in overdrive!
We are thrilled to win and be finalists for all three prestigious awards. We feel it recognises all the hard work we put into making our brides and grooms feel so special as the excitement builds up to their most special of days. Just as importantly, you the customer know you are visiting the area’s premier Bridal Boutique and Menswear Hire establishment – who else would you trust with your very special day?!
