I’m an Award Winning Wedding Planner! What an incredible honour to receive this award! The Yorkshire & North East awards took place at The Fed in Gateshead on the 7th of November 2023 and what a night we had! It was organised by the ever brilliant TWIA and it was fabulous to see so many friendly faces as well as to meet new ones.
The great thing about the wedding industry awards is that they have an incredibly detailed winner-selection process. Decisions are based upon “Each entrant’s responses to their Judging Profile questions, their voter scores and comments, any photos and videos uploaded, social media presence and web site.”
The biggest thank you has to go to my wonderful clients who have trusted me with their wedding planning, allowed me to be a part of their most poignant moments and depended on me to execute their visions. Each wedding I am part of truly is an honour and I genuinely give 110% to each and every client so to be rewarded for that, by those very clients is unimaginable.
And of course, thank you to my wonderful friends and family who have supported me every step of the way. Being a wedding planner isn’t always the most social of professions. I am often on site for days at a time, and working unsocial hours. But, they know I wouldn’t change it for the world and I’m so very grateful for their support.
