North West Wedding Florist of the Year!! AGAIN!
16 November 2015
These past few days have been a whirlwind, as last Monday evening saw us take home the award for North West Wedding Florist of the Year, at the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards 2016!
It was a night mixed with excitement and nervousness, as being the incumbent winner of 2015, we had a lot to live up to! There was also some extremely tough competition from florists who we very much admire.
Being recognised by the Wedding Industry Awards means a lot to us, as it’s voted for by the brides and grooms themselves. We were overwhelmed to learn that several couples we’d had the pleasure of working with had nominated us and almost 70 had then taken the time to vote for us. This alone is a huge honour!
I’m very proud to say that we make it our priority to build close relationships with our clients as it’s this understanding and bond which helps to make the whole wedding floristry experience so memorable. It’s lovely to see that our brides and grooms agree.
As you can imagine the awards evening was simply stunning, hosted by bespoke wedding venue, Heaton House Farm in Cheshire. The room was packed with the best suppliers in the North West – from florists to bridal wear, hoteliers to photographers – an engaged couples dream!
It was great to see some of our wedding industry friends, especially as so many of them took home the coveted awards in their own categories. There’s almost too many to mention but special congratulations to The Rush who always get everyone dancing and having an amazing time; Emma at LOVE bridal boutique whose bridal gowns always make us swoon; our favourite-ever DJ Andy Murphy; the awe-inspiring magician Sam Fitton and finally The Word is Love for wedding props and light up letters that we’re just looking for an excuse to buy!
And thanks to these guys who drowned out our gasps of shock as ‘The Flower Lounge’ was called out as winner of the North West’s Wedding Florist of the Year. We literally ran to the stage, just in case they changed their mind!
Now we’re at the end of the week we’ve had time to reflect. We’ve loved working on such a diverse number of weddings, from small and intimate affairs to lavish formal receptions, and each one we’ve strived to exceed expectations. This is what gives us job satisfaction. Being recognised as the region’s top wedding florist is simply the icing on the cake!
With plenty of Christmas and New Year weddings on the horizon I hope our future couples will be as delighted with our work.
We’re now finding somewhere in the shop to showcase our award and looking forward to the national finals in January…wish us luck!
