The National Wedding Industry Awards 2018…

I decided to take the plunge and enter myself into the National Wedding Industry Awards 2018…

The awards its self is one the most prestigious out there which is a little intimidating! I went through a rigorous selection process which involved answering honest and difficult questions about you and your business on which you score points from the judges… then asking every bride from 2017 to take time out of their day to vote for me… with out votes you quite simply don’t get through… Months of waiting and anticipation were repaid when I received the email announcing i’d made it through to the south west regional finals… I let out a little shriek of joy to which my dog barked the house down thinking I was being attacked! The weeks after this I was floating on air so happy to just get through…

Supplier friends in the industry also got through… we ditched our work clothes and popped on our posh frocks and heels for the night taking the two hour trip to deepest darkest Wiltshire for the awards ceremony… We were greeted by red carpet, dancing flames and prosecco… It was wonderful to meet lots of new suppliers and make new friends during the warm up to the ceremony… The evening got tense as we all took our positions waiting in anticipation for our category to be called… I was up against some amazingly talented florists and previous winners… I never thought in a million years I’d win… When they called my name out I couldn’t believe it! I was so shocked, tearful and above all so happy… I think my face say’s everything in these images… Thank you to all my brides who voted for me and gave rave reviews… with out you this award would never have happened… It’s an hour to call my self an award winning florist :)

She is an extremely talented artist

Even after my own wedding over a year ago I still follow Clair on all her social medias... seeing her new work with other brides and feeling like she keeps re-investing herself, nothing is ever alike! She is an extremely talented artist.

We met Clair and clicked immediately

We met Clair and just clicked immediately with her. She had prepared ideas based on our description of the wedding and she was one of the few suppliers we met who genuinely tailored her approach as soon as she got the brief.

Very responsive and flexible

Clair is extremely passionate about what she does, which is highly infectious... She knows her craft and is very responsive and flexible to additional ideas... Everyone commented that they were the most stunning wedding flowers they'd ever seen!
