Industry excellence celebrated at the Bridal Buyer Awards 2013
This week, we were really excited to be back at BBEH, for our third season as chosen charity for the show. Firmly established as the UK’s key bridal trade show and held twice a year, BBEH also plays host to the prestigious Bridal Buyer Awards. Voted for by professionals within the wedding industry, the awards recognise exceptional products and customer service. We were thrilled to be there on the night to watch some of the finest talents in the bridal industry collect their prizes.
Among the winners were Amanda Wyatt, for their style Felicia, which was named Wedding Dress of the Year, Lulu Browns Bridal, named Best Bridalwear Retailer North and Benjamin Roberts, named Best Bridal Manufacturer. There was also a special Best Student Designer award, which this year went to Jacqui Luker, University of Derby, a rising name in the next generation of industry talent.
Each season we attend BBEH, we increasingly feel part of this unique industry. Thanks to the tremendous support of show organisers Wendy Adams and Georgia Pick, both exhibitors and visitors are getting used to seeing us at the show and becoming more familiar with the support we can give to families working in the industry. Plus, with the help of our wonderful volunteers, FTCT mum Anne, her daughter Rebecca and her friend Rebecca H our brand presence is felt throughout the show.
We would like to say a special thanks to Susi Rogol for featuring FTCT in the Harrogate edition of Bridal Buyer magazine, the team at Jupiter events for their fabulous fundraising efforts and to everyone who generously made a donation at the show.
