Well it is now over a week since we discovered we have been shortlisted as one of just two finalists for our region’s Event Decorators of the Year in the Scottish Wedding Awards. To say we were delighted is an understatement. Ecstatic! I still have butterflies now – goodness knows what I am going to be like come the day of the Award ceremony.
Produced in association with Peppermint Aesthetic Clinics part of the Peppermint Group, Creative Oceanic are promoting these new awards to “celebrate the best of the Scottish Wedding Industry”. Wow – now that is just a little bit humbling isn’t it?
We are just a small family run business whose main aim is to add a little extra to someones dream day. If we manage to make a small living too then that’s a bonus. We simply love what we do – it’s our job. So to be considered among the best Scotland has to offer is, well, frankly it is a little frightening.
On 22nd April there is an awards ceremony in Glasgow where the regions winners will be announced – plus overall winners for Scotland too. Scotland has some amazingly talented venue stylists, so we are simply happy to have been nominated by so many of our customers, suppliers and venues. I mean, top two in the North East Scotland, a region which extends to include Aberdeen is just too scary to imagine or contemplate. I am personally very grateful and honoured that folk feel we deserve a place at the awards for simply “doing our job” But we will enjoy a great night along so many lovely, local wedding suppliers and we wish everyone a great night and all the luck.
What will be, will be, as they say. For now I am just a pretty happy venue stylist with a big daft grin on my face.
Now….time to look for a dress.
