  2. Amanda Wyatt and the team are so excited to be involved this year sponsporing the ‘Best Bridal Retailer’ award!
    It was the icing on the cake to then be nominated ourselves for ‘Best Bridal Manufacturer’ and we can’t wait for the awards in January.

  3. I voted for the lovely Zoe at Bunny Delicious as she has made our amazing wedding stationery (as well as beautiful Christmas cards) and I am SO happy she has finally been recognised as her work is amazing 😀

  4. For 7 years I’ve strived to get onto the Wedding Ideas shortlist for stationery. I’ve been an emotional basketcase since I found out! It means the world to me to get this far. Thank you so very much to everyone who voted for me. (I’ve condensed the gabble to a few lines!!) xxxx

  5. It is an honour to be nominated for such a great award. We would not be on the short list if it was not for your votes so big thank you.

    Also to be recognized amongst such peers is a real thrill, there is a lot of great talent this year. It will be the best awards yet. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone nominated.

    From all at Hugh Harris Menswear…
