Last night I attended the Four Counties Wedding award at Shuttleworth House. The 4CWA was set up to recognise and reward the hard work and dedication, the long hours and patience of our wedding suppliers who go above and beyond to make every wedding day so very special. It raises funds for The Wishing Well foundation. It helps people with terminal illnesses to marry their partners.
I was so excited just to be shortlisted – it covers all of Herts, Beds, Bucks and Cambs, so it was a pretty big deal. The event was held in Shuttleworth College Mansion house and was fantastically organised and raised money for the Wedding Wishing well appeal. Thank you to all my AMAZING couples who voted for me, I love capturing all your special moments so being awarded for it, is like icing on the cake! Thank you to Tracy and the team at The Four Counties Wedding Awards for a fantastic night. Thank you to the awesome judges Kate Beavis Vintage, Sarah’s Doo-Wop Dos, Mad Philomena, Boho Weddings & Events,Passion for Flowers, Ian Bursill Photography, Lemon Zest Cuisine Ltd, Restoration Cake and everyone else involved. Well done to all the suppliers including my super talented venue stylist friend Alice from Fleur de lace. pictured below with me getting our awards.
