A wedding shop in Southsea has picked up a prestigious award for the second time.

Creatiques of Marmion Road took the title of ‘Retailer of the Year” in the competition held by Wedding Ideas Magazine. They accepted their prize at a ceremony held in The Tower Hotel in London on Friday evening.

Brides voted online for their favourite retailer and Creatiques came top in their category. This is the second time that they have won this award being a previous winner in 2011.

Director, Rob Pearce, who runs Creatiques with partner, Andrew, said, “We were absolutely shocked. We didn’t think we would win and it came as a great surprise. It was amazing. Everybody in the room stood up and cheered. We had a lot of support.”

Creatiques have a second shop opening soon, called Inspired Bridal by Creatiques, and Rob said that winning couldn’t have come at a better time. “Wedding Ideas Magazine is the best selling wedding magazine in the UK and with our second shop opening, this obviously gets our name out there.”

The new shop is in Old Portsmouth and will be officially open to the public on the 24th January and is already fully booked with appointments for the first day.

“It’s very exciting. We needed to expand due to the demand from brides as we run by appointments only and can only squeeze in so many. Having the second shop is an extension of our service.”

To get a VIP invitation to the preview opening on the 23rd January, please contact Rob or Andrew on 023 92 826622. More information can be found at the website on www.creatiques.co.uk.
