Wedding Industry Award Winner - Glow Love Lights

Leave a Comment
Today we're featuring another Wedding Industry Awards Winner... Glow Love Lights.

Winning the category of 'Special Touch', Glow Love Lights is the brain child of husband & wife, Jodie & Luke.  Based in Oxfordshire, wedding photographer Jodie came up with the idea after deciding she could offer something a bit different for weddings & events... and in 2013, Glow Love Lights was born.





Husband Luke, A joiner as trade, hand crafts each of the letters & symbols that stand around 4ft tall complete with LED lights.  More quirky designs are in the pipeline and they have even created a hashtag symbol #  ... which has already been featured for an awards ceremony at the London Savoy Hotel!

I really (pardon the pun) 'love' these and think they really do add a personal touch to your wedding that also creates a WOW factor. The photo opportunities are endless with guests...



 So if you're thinking of adding that something special then head over to Glow Love Lights to see more pictures & prices.. or maybe even have your own custom made sign!

Wedding Industry Award Winner - Falcon Wedding Cars...

Leave a Comment
Continuing on with our feature of The 2015 Wedding Industry Awards winners & finalists...

Introducing Falcon Wedding Cars...


One of the hardest choices for a bride & groom is how they are going to arrive at the wedding!  We have seen hundreds of different wedding transport from limos to buses, helicopters to the Dukes of Hazard Dodge Charger.  For me... it's all about tradition.  You pay all that attention to detail to the dress and venue decor, you want to compliment it with your transport.  What better way with these two gorgeous classics from Falcon Cars.

The Beauford



The Falcon




These iconic cars are ideal for practically any style of wedding... Traditional, Vintage, Rustic or how about a Gatsby inspired theme.  Lovingly restored and every bit the picture perfect wedding car.

Falcon Cars is based in East Sussex and run by Peter Cook.  You can see a whole host of weddin pictures over on their website.. Falcon Wedding Cars.

Wedding Industry Award Winner - Jon Hart

Leave a Comment
Over the coming weeks I'll be featuring regional & national winners of the Wedding Industry Awards.  These are suppiers, artists, and vendors who have been recognised by leading wedding experts.

Today is the musical talent of Jon Hart...


Jon is a full time, freelance musician, singer/songwriter & tutor who is based in Surrey.  His unique acoustic sound incorporates vocal harmony, fingerstyle guitar and the occasional beatboxing to add a unique twist to those classic covers from all eras (from The Beatles to Ed Sheeran).


Jon's performance is a high energy solo experience that spans over a decade. By using specialist equipment (no backing tracks),  Jon thickens the sound by using a vocal harmony pedal and looping pedal for beat boxing. This gives the impression there are many musicians, or even a small band playing.  His setup is compact & non intrusive and can easily adapt into any wedding venue.


 

With years of experience and having traveled the world, featured on radio and in magazine.. you'll understand why Jon won regional finalist in the Wedding Industry Awards.

Head over to Jon' website for more info and samples of his work.

The Wedding Industry Awards...

Leave a Comment
We've all been there when it comes to planning a wedding...  Choosing the right vendor!

As a vendor myself I have seen & heard it all.  Are they reputable, will they get it right, will they turn up, will they rip me off?   These are all worries & stresses a bride & groom face when planning their big day.

Luckily, The Wedding Industry Awards has put that to rest!  In it's fourth year, The Awards recognises wedding suppliers & vendors that excel in their profession.



The way it works is very simple.

Suppliers & vendors enter the awards and then rely on votes & feedback from their previous years wedding customers, suppliers are not privy to the feedback from their customer until after awards.  The votes & feedback are then judged by a panel of leading wedding industry experts and then filtered into a shortlist.  The shortlist is then judged again and a winner is chosen.



The awards have now grown into the leading industry standard and are now recognised by many.

We, ourselves, recently we're shortlisted as a finalist and I have to say - it also helps boost your reputation and profile as a vendor when attending venues all over the country.... so it works both ways!

So... if you're looking for a florist of photo booth or even a dress maker to a DJ.  You'll find a whole list of recognised suppliers over on the website.
