Last week Anna and I attended the Wedding Industry Awards event for the West Midlands, a glittering ceremony at Mythe Barn in Warwickshire.
After a huge crisis about what to wear, we decided that nothing other than couture would do! So with two days to go and a big event on the horizon we set about the big "Stitch Up!"
We didn't have much time to dream about our designs, but we knew exactly what we wanted. Fabric arrived in parcels from London and with machines whizzing at speed we created our dresses… just in time!
Our anticipation grew and off we went! It was a glittering event sponsored by Champagne Lanson, with delicious and stylish catering from Galloping Gourmet. It was lovely to catch up and party with our friends, many of whom we've worked together with on weddings over the last few years. And it was brilliant to do a spot of networking and make new friends too!
Founder of The Wedding Industry Awards, Damian Bailey said: “The Wedding Industry Awards really have become the gold standard for wedding excellence in this country and, as our regional award ceremony at Mythe Barn proved, the wedding industry in the West Midlands is packed full with passionate, innovative and committed suppliers.”
“This our fourth awards and the standard of entrants was higher than ever,” continued Damian. “It’s becoming harder and harder for our judges to pick winners from such amazing shortlists where everyone demonstrates such skill. It was great to celebrate everyone’s achievements and then party all night!”
Well we only went and won it! Blimey! Best Dressmaker Designer in the West Midlands! We are still officially on cloud nine, and a little bit in love with this little beauty!
So a huge thank you to all the brides who voted for us, it was an honour to make your dresses for you and be part of your big day. And not that we needed inspiring really, but we'll continue to strive to do our absolute best for our brides in the future.
