Beating off stiff competition from the best in the business, top UK designer Charlotte Balbier couldn’t believe her win at the Wedding Ideas Awards 2014…
“When I received the call from Wedding Ideas to say I was a finalist I was absolutely over the moon and already felt like a winner,” says Charlotte.
“I was up against the best designers in the industry and was honoured to just be nominated alongside them. When Pippa called out my name as the winner for the first time in my life I could not move from my seat as I was so shocked!”
Charlotte received her prize from the team at the UK Academy of Wedding and Event Planners, sponsors of this prestigious award. “Receiving this award is a huge milestone in my career and a moment in time I will treasure forever. Thank you to all who voted for me,” adds Charlotte.
The judges loved Charlotte’s contemporary twist on classic bridal styles. Her collection for 2014, A Decade of Style, celebrates her 10th anniversary in the wedding industry and encapsulates feminine silhouettes and luxury textures and tones.
Charlotte attended the Wedding Ideas Awards with her wonderful new husband Teddy. The pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Iscoyd Park in late 2013 after travelling to Ibiza for a pre-wedding engagement shoot with top wedding photographer Polly Alexandre, who is based on the island.
