It’s such an honour to have been shortlisted for the UK Wedding Awards 2019! When I first started this business almost three years ago now, I never would have imagined being up for an award, surrounded by the best in the industry. It’s an understatement to say how humbled I am by this and grateful for the recognition La Fête is getting.

So why do we deserve this award? I’ve found myself thinking about that quite a bit. Of course, personally, I know why and what this would mean to my team and me. But why should my followers (you lovely people!) take the time to scroll down, check the box marked La Fête and enter your email address?

It’s a personal thing of course: maybe you love our photoshoots, maybe you read some of our planning tips in the press and thought, “That is a great idea for my wedding”.

But to me, the reason why we truly deserve this award isn’t because of our styling skills, our knowledge of colour or our organisational abilities. The truth is, many fantastic companies can do that.

What we do goes beyond in every way: what we are truly passionate about is creating memories.

We don’t just deliver a beautifully designed experience, but rather, we work tirelessly to make sure that when our clients think back to their big day, they don’t just remember their stunning floral arrangements and lighting design. Instead, they close their eyes and feel their gown on their skin, taste the sugar flowers on their tongue, hear their first dance song and see one of their most beautiful memories playing over and over behind their closed eyelids.

And delivering that little bit of magic is the most rewarding thing we could ever do. That’s why we deserve this award.

Thank you for taking the time to vote for us!
