Wow. So completely gobsmacked, honoured, humbled, amazed and excited to find out that:
We have won the Best Wedding Stationery award at the Wedding Industry Awards 2014!
As you may or may not know, last year we took home the national title Best Newcomer Award, chosen from new businesses all over the country, which was pretty awesome and a huge, huge honour. At the awards ceremony last year, I was dancing away in three-inch heels and drinking champagne, not knowing that little Phoebe was growing inside of me (I’d like to think she was partying away in my tummy too). And over the last year, Ben and I worked our little behinds off. It was such an exciting year, with so much uncertainty but also so exhilarating, and we wouldn’t trade it for anything else. The business grew, and we grew as a family alongside it.
Although we couldn’t make it to the awards ceremony this year, when we heard our twitter messages go off with the announcement of our award, we jumped up and down in our pajamas (yes, pajamas, very rock n roll—we have a little baby you know) in hushed voices, careful not to wake little Phoebe upstairs. We are happy, contented and moved by the amazing feedback from all our clients, not only because our voter scores were close to 10 out of 10; no, that was great. But what was greater was to hear that what we are doing is appreciated by you, and that we are truly creating tangible pieces of memory from your wonderful celebrations. It is an honour to be able to do that.
So, just a massive thank you once again for your amazing feedback. And thank you to the panel of judges at TWIA this year for picking us. To our friends and family, thank you for your support and encouragement; and finally to Jesus, our friend and saviour, who is the reason we live and the air that we breath. We are so thankful!
