Four Counties Wedding Awards 2016

We were absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted in the 2016 Four Counties Wedding Awards. We were shortlisted in the Best Wedding Cake Designer category and the finals took place on 30th November 2016 at the gorgeous Knebworth Barns.

When working for yourself you relish any chance for a night out with like minded individuals and its always a nice chance for me and the Mr to get dressed up. A huge thank you to Fogarty Formal Hire for making Daniel look so handsome. (My dress was from ASOS).

The drinks reception started at 7pm where we were entertained by the fabulous Nouveau Jazz Trio whilst enjoying a cheeky glass or two of bubbly. There was also the chance to add a sprinkling of glitter to our outfits courtesy of Glitter Forever.

Dinner was served in the marque which certainly takes your breath away when you walk in. The starlit ceiling a fabulous backdrop for the evening. The food was exceptional and we would certainly recommend Knebworth Barns for your wedding or event. The company was fabulous too as we were sharing a table with the wonderful Belle Momenti and Mimeo Fun.

After dinner was the raffle and silent auction in aid of the amazing Wedding Wishing Well Foundation. A total of £1448.50 was raised for this amazing cause. Do be sure to pop over to their website to see the amazing work they do.

It was then time for the nerves to kick in – it was awards time. Soon enough it was time for our category, Best Wedding Cake Designer, presented by Charlotte White of Restoration Cake.

We could not believe it when our name was called out. (my silly grin in the picture speaks volumes). I think we are still in shock.
