21 Jun Bridal Buyer 2018 here we come!
It’s been a great week for us in the boutique. Last week we recieved the news that we have made the finalist list for Bridal Buyer Award 2018. The awards are held every September in Harrogate, after Harrogate Bridal Weekend which is a buying event for retailers to buy new season gowns from our stocked designers.
The awards are the most prestigious in the industry, and it is such an honour to be named alongside some other fabulous retailers within the industry as finalists. We are shortlisted for ‘Customer Service’ and ‘Longstanding Retailer’. In 2015 and 2016 we won “Retailer of The Year- England’ for the two years consecutively, and we are still immensely proud of that.
We’ve had a great few days celebrating. On Sunday Andrew, Rob and Kayleigh went to London to The Royal Hospital Chelsea to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Birthday Celebrations. Andrew and Rob’s friend Jodie Prenger was among the list of incredible West End performers singing for the occasion and Kayleigh’s partner Sarah who is a professional Viola player was in playing in The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra on the evening. It was a fabulous evening, slightly chilly but wonderful nonetheless. Watch this space for ‘Creatiques Carpool Karaoke…’
Andrew, Rob and Kayleigh also celebrated on Tuesday evening at Sant Yago in Southsea. Jess our Saturday girl was also supposed to join us but couldn’t make it. Lots of yummy food, a couple of cocktails and a few too many glasses of wine!
