Wow wow wow I won ‘Wedding Hair & make up Artist of the Year 2017’ at the EDP Bride Wedding Awards. It all started last September when one of my brides sent me a fabulous email testimonial and said that she had entered me into the awards. I was then contacted by the judge Kevin Plumstead of Elizabeth Florists in Norwich to arrange an interview as I had been short listed to the last six. I then received a letter inviting me to the black tie awards evening at Dunston Hall in Norwich and I had made it to the last three, along with the fabulous Kelly Mullender of Perfection at Lowestoft and Hollie Sulter of The Make up Company.
The night of the awards was fantastic, Paul and I got our glad rags on and went along to Dunston Hall with no thought of actually winning, but we wanted to enjoy the evening. It started with a drinks reception and then into the function room for a wonderful three course dinner and then the real business got started….. The Awards……. we were 10 awards in and it was us up next , Kevin went to the stage and opened the envelope and said my name!!!!! I couldn’t believe it. Paul and I went to the stage and had a short chat with David Whiteley of BBC Look East and then we went to the green room for photos and a short video interview and then at last we cracked open the champagne!!!! It was an amazing night as well for my friend and our wedding photographer Karen Fuller of Fuller Photography as she won wedding photographer of the year. The fabulous Lou Lou loves vintage unique wedding hire, won two awards and another friend of ours Karen Walpole won Videographer of the year!!
All in all a superb event and I am amazed and thrilled to have been a part of it, so thank you to the original bride who nominated me and Kevin Plumstead who could see how much I love my job!!!
