On the 18th June 2013, the Cherish Bridal team attended the County Brides Northwest Wedding Awards 2013 at Crewe Hall. It was an honour to have been nominated and to be up against some very well established companies in the bridal industry. It was a fantastic evening which was filmed for Weddings TV on sky and freeview which will be aired in the near future as part of a new wedding programme. The room was full of the regions most respected businesses and we felt honoured but deserving to be there.. We were one of four finalists in the category for Best Bridal Supplier 2013.
Crewe Hall looked amazing on the night, decked out in splendid black candelabras, black and white table settings and the room was lit in a gorgeous shade of lilac. The stage was dressed with large gold oscar statues staring down on the finalists for the evenings proceedings. There was also a large County Brides Awards Ice Sculpture which looked fantastic.. After reception drinks we sat down to a gorgeous meal and wine along with after dinner competitions and auctions.
Then it was time… The room was filled with anticipation and excitement not to mention also a lot of nerves.. We waited through all the categories, one by one they were announced getting ever closer to the Best Bridal supplier.. It was the final category of the awards of the evening.. sadly this year we did not pick up the award but we were still very very happy and very honoured to have made it into the the top 4 of 28 from the each category and there were only 7 points between the four finalists. So to our customers past and present a heartfelt thank you for all your support over the short number of years we have been established. We were up against some very big suppliers and some which have been established far longer and so this gives us great hope for success in the future. Without “you”, we are nothing and for this we are eternally grateful. The support we see carries us forward, helps us improve our services, helps us grow and brings the types of recognition we have seen this week..
After the awards ceremony we were treated to some casino fun courtesy of Pier Fun Casino’s whom were awarded “Best Entertainment Agency in the North West” who were also part of our table that evening so a very big well done to them too.
We may not have won this year but this only makes us more determined to strive forward and continue to put our heart and soul into our services to ensure the experience our customers receive are worthy of us being there again next year to improve on an already outstanding achievement this year..
