After a few solid years doing weddings I decided to enter The Wedding Industry Awards for 2016. As wedding season ends for 2015 the awards gives the chance to celebrate the very best in the Wedding Industry. I’ve watched a lot of fellow makeup artists, photographers and dress designers enter for the past few years so this year I decided it was my turn to go for it.
I’m in the category for ‘North West Makeup Artist’ and had all my brides from set dates last year vote for me so a huge thank you to everyone that took the time out to do that. Voting has now closed and they are running through the scores from the votes and then the judges will step in and have an input in the finalists too.
There is also a new category for ‘Best Website’ which I’ve also entered, anyone that knows me will know how in love with my website I am and all the effort I put in to make sure it stands out. L3 Creative (the web company) have had their work cut out with all my requests the past few weeks, the whip has been out and demanding doesn’t quite cut how they would describe me right now! All that said I’m really happy and they are too so let’s see what happens – No pressure ha ha.
I’m a little nervous as of course you’re being judged and we do have a talented category, a friend is also in the line up too! The shortlist for the regional finals will be announced next week and then it’s the North West regional finals award night at the amazing Heaton House Farm in Macclesfield. Whoever wins goes through to the National Finals in London next year!
I shall keep everyone updated on my progress, it would be a nice early Christmas present!
