Talk us through the nomination process?

We submitted an application and explained why we should be considered for the best bridal retailer in Wales. We were asked detailed questions about who we are, how we operate as a business and why we felt like we deserved to win.

How did you feel when the shop was shortlisted?

When we found out we were shortlisted, we were ecstatic. It was a very proud moment for us as even getting to that stage is a huge achievement.

Why do you think you were shortlisted?

Every year we try and bring something different to the business. This year we feel we have been more customer-focused in terms of showing appreciation for our customers. In addition to this, we have also given back to our community every month, which is something we are very proud of.

We believe that we were nominated because of all this and we also feel we stand out as a bridal boutique as we are always aiming to offer something different.

How did you feel when you won?

When we found out we won we were completely shocked as we really didn’t expect to win again. It was an overwhelming mixture of emotions and a bit of a whirlwind. It didn’t really sink in until the next day.

Why is this award so important for you?

The Bridal Buyer Awards for us is like the Oscars of all awards in the bridal industry. To even be nominated lets us know we are doing something right but to go and win, just confirms it! It also reassures us that we have a great business and that keeps pushing us to be better for the next year.

What do you think this will do for the business over the next 12 months?

By winning this award we feel it shows we are a reliable and reputable business and that we are growing from strength to strength, which we hope our brides will also see.

The Harrogate Bridal Show dates for 2020 have already been set, so make sure you put them in the diary, 13 - 15 September 2020 at Harrogate Convention Centre.
