Last Monday 13th November we donned our glad rags and made our way up to Birmingham for the Regional Wedding Industry Awards held at the really quite cool Fazeley Studios.
We had been nominated in the Best Wedding Venue (countryside) category and thanks to all the amazing comments and votes by all our wonderful couples who got married between October 2016 - 17 we had made it through as a finalist!
After some initial talks from Devoted and Arbonne about all their organic botanical skin care products (perfect for getting that natural dewy glow for your wedding day!) we had a bit of time to enjoy some bubbly and canapés before the awards began. It was a great opportunity to be able to catch up with all the other suppliers at the event, many of whom we are lucky to work with on a regular basis.
The actual awards started at 8.30pm and it was great to see (and hear) the support for each category winner as they were announced, the West Midlands as a region has a really tight knit community of suppliers so it was a super evening of celebration for everyone involved. Our category was one of the last awards to be announced and against some tough competition we were announced as Winners of the Best Wedding Venue (Countryside)!!
It's now time to look ahead to the National Finals in January 2018 where we will be up against more stiff competition from all the other regional winners across the country.
The Judges will once again be taking into consideration all the votes and comments left by our couples and scrutinising our website and social media platforms to find the overall winner of Best National Countryside Wedding Venue.
We can't thank our couples enough for all their votes, kind words (they must have been pretty darn kind) and support, it is such a wonderful feeling to know that all the love and endless hard work by all the team that goes into each and every wedding has been recognised :) We're super excited (and nervous) for the awards so wish us luck!
