Wow, what an amazing night last night was. Finally it was our turn to sip champagne and admire the effort, taste the canapés and have a good old knees up. The team at Not Your Average I Do was so excited to be a finalist in the 2017 Wedding Industry Awards, two carloads of us set off on our road trip, glittery and ready to party – whatever the outcome.

We arrived to some tasty cocktails courtesy of Beetle Juice – tasted so good, and one of our five a day with all that fruit ? After a two hour car journey, the cocktails were gone in minutes and we eagerly awaited the arrival of our leader, Kelly. She might be amazing at venue styling, but I can tell you, navigation is not her strong point, or was that just the nerves kicking in?!

So while we were sipping champagne and feasting on the delicious canapés, poor Kelly was frantically trying to find the venue! Like a bride, she was fashionably late, but not too late to enjoy a few cocktails and get comfy for the main event – the awards ceremony.

Anticipation built for the team as we saw amazing wedding supplier after amazing wedding supplier collect their award and heard some of the fabulous comments their couples had said about them, until finally it was our turn. As Damien called out our name, we literally took the roof off. We were so excited and proud to have been voted best Wedding Venue Stylist for London and the South East for a second year running, Kelly literally bounded up onto the stage.

Thank you to everyone who voted, your support means so much.
