Belton House wedding fayre

Thank you to all all the lovely brides, grooms and mums I spoke to yesterday. It is always fascinating to hear your ideas on making this special day truly your own. There were plenty of different and fun ideas out there and if you are only at the very start of your wedding planning, as many were, take all the ideas in and enjoy the ride. Please sign up to my newsletter too as I will be sending out once a month handy tips on choosing items of the flowery nature. I won't bombard you with stuff I promise!!

Belton House is a stunning country house where you can get married in the marble hall (Click here) or for the larger wedding a marquee on the lawn (Click here)

Wedding Industry Awards

I have entered The Wedding Industry Awards again this year. Two years ago I was thrilled to be shortlisted in the East Midlands region and am hoping to at least match this feat if not surpass it. This will be extremely difficult as I am up against last years overall National winner! I am therefore asking for all my lovely brides and grooms who have had me design their flowers since 1st November 2012 until 31st October 2013 (you can only vote after your wedding date)if you would all be so kind as to vote. You should all be receiving an email with a link, but if you don't please get in touch as I may not have your current email address.
Last night I went to the first regional get together of suppliers that the awards are putting on and met some lovely folk who I would be more than happy to recommend. I also got to have a lengthy chat with Damien, the organiser of the awards (along with his wife) who explained how they hope to see the awards evolve and how they are trying really hard to make it as fair for the small businesses as for the larger ones.
These are one of the better industry awards, as I see it, as only couples who have commissioned suppliers and have first hand knowledge of the products can vote and it is not all about how many clicks or web friends you have.

To vote for me you can click on the link below, but please remember you can only vote if you were married between 1st November 2012 and 31st October 2013.
