winners of best gift list

On Friday night we, the weddings team, put on our finery and trotted along to The Brewery in Aldgate to take our places at the Wedding Ideas Awards 2012. We were up for Best Gift List alongside John Lewis, Debenhams, Cancer Research UK and Buy Our Honeymoon.

Fifth award up was potentially ours, and we were absolutely delighted when our name was called out as winners of Best Gift List! We gave a little speech and then were slightly mortified to find ourselves answering more questions and SINGING on film. We dutifully did as we were asked, but we’re certainly hoping that it never gets exposed…

We even had a little sip from the giraffe vodka luge. Well, we didn’t want to appear rude. And then the weddings team hit the dance floor to celebrate as only we know how. We were very happy to see some of our Partners there amongst the nominees, including Tantrums and Tiaras and Intricate Creations and winners of their categories, Rachel Simpson and Giddy Kipper! It really was a memorable night.

We can’t wait to try the champagne with gold leaf that we received as a winner’s gift. We are waiting for a suitably gold occasion for that! With 350 of the industry’s biggest names at the awards, and 10,000 readers voting, this award was a real achievement. Celebrate with us, because it is thanks to our Partners and our voters that we won! A big thank you to Wedding Ideas magazine too for throwing such a great awards night and including us in it.

Alongside our Perfect Wedding Award for Best Wedding Details, we are officially an award-winning weddings department.
