The 20th of May was a night of suspense and hope in our house, with the winners announced via Twitter! The virtual ceremony took place from 8pm and the 'Best Newcomer' category was the last award of the night. Finally, at 9.55pm Gary looked up from Twitter to say Mrs2Be had tagged us in a tweet, at which point our internet dropped!! A moment later it kicked back in for us to view the tweet - Highly Commended in the category! We were thrilled!! Only two (I think) other categories had Highly Commended sections so it must have been a close call for the judges.
Although we didn't win outright we are still taking this as a great result. We were delighted to have been nominated by our wedding couples, make the finalist list and almost make it as Highly Commended. Again we would like to thank our wedding couples, family and friends for supporting us as we venture into this new business. In the meantime it's back to work!
The Mrs2Be Brides' Choice awards are the first and only Irish wedding industry awards that are based on a detailed review process involving each entrant’s previous customers. Entrants are judged on a range of criteria including professionalism and quality. For more on the awards see Mrs2Be.
