The shock and disbelief, and not to mention a huge amout of overexcited screaming when we heard Damien of the Wedding Industry Awards call our name and we realised that we had won Best Wedding Venue Stylist of the South East for a third year running. To say we weren’t expecting it was an understatement. Don’t get me wrong, we have worked our socks off this year and created some truly stunning weddings (even if I do say so myself), it’s just for this to be recognised by our wonderful couples, and for them to take the time to go through the lengthy process of nominating us and finally for the creme de la creme of the wedding industry (otherwise known as the judges) to recognise this too is truly overwhelming.

Last night was just amazing, it was a long old trek out to Blackstock Barn for us, luckily (being the natural organisers we are) we had a suitable amount of refreshments. We arrived in time for more prosecco and some yummy ice cream before settling down to hear this year’s winners. For some reason venue styling always seems to come near the end (cue more prosecco!). You’ll be pleased to hear we made quite an entrance to the stage, screaming and hugging and general merriment. We felt so proud to be standing on that stage and want to thank every single one of you for all the support over the past years, we couldn’t have done it without you.

And so in January we head to London for the national awards, this is always an amazing night and a chance to let our hair down and think about the year of weddings and hard work. We’re hoping for third time lucky, but either way we are so thankful for the awards we have received.
