Many of the lovely features, like our Cherish Locket Builder, the engravable pendant designer and the live WebChat, you can see on the site today were created by Sophie to make shopping on our website an easy and enjoyable experience for you.
We would like to congratulate Sophie on being selected as a Rising Star and also Thank her for all of her hard work, we can’t wait to see what’s coming up online!
On Friday 21st April one of the biggest award ceremonies celebrating UK Blogs took place at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel, where our very own Dan Dower judged the Wedding & Events category and presented the awards.
With a Superhero theme the awards were sponsored by Odeon, who brought their latest films to life with Wonder Woman and the Sword & The Stone entertainment. The awards featured every type of blog imaginable, from automotive to fashion, food & drink and everything in between. Dan Dower was asked to bring his Bridal expertise to the proceedings by judging the Wedding & Event category.
The category was divided into Individual and Company finalists with 8 nominees in each, Dan was helped in the judging by Alex Dingwall of the Concerto Group and Bianca Searle of Odeon, the night’s headline sponsor.
Weddings triumphed on the night with Whisper & Blush winning the individual category and Wedding Hour winning from the Company finalists. Congratulations to both on their wins!
