2014. That was a bit of a year....

A little belated but Happy New Year!

2014 was one of those years that flew by in a flash. We did tonnes of fabulous weddings, some amazing parties, we had a brand new website and we decided to move workshops. More of that news to come. Along with all of this we were also nominated for the Perfect Wedding Awards "Best Wedding Florist 2014" Now, as you can imagine I was pretty chuffed just to get nominated. we were up there with such amazingly talented florists and as fellow nominee Jay Archer said "Me and you are the wildcards"and this is just how it felt. Violets and Velvet is a small, independent floristry company, there's just five of us, all freelancers apart from me of course and I didn't think I stood a chance. All my past clients were asked to vote, and they did, in there droves it appears! The voting was purely based on the public vote so that's why it was so amazing when they announced us as the winner!!!! I had an outer body experience to be fair! I think you will see just how shocked I was in the little video below!

It was a brilliant end to a bittersweet year ( isn't every year a bit like that) and I appreciate so much every single vote that was placed. It's so wonderful to have your work recognised in this way and makes all the hard work over the years so, so worth it. My sincere thanks goes out to everyone who bothered to vote for me. You really did make my dreams come true.
