Wow, it’s been a crazy few days and I think I’ve only just stepped off Cloud 9 and brought myself back down to earth after an exciting and hugely successful night at the Northern Ireland Wedding Journal Awards 2018.

I was delighted to have attended the Northern Ireland Wedding Journal Awards 2018 on the evening of Sunday 10th, where I was shortlisted amongst some of the finest bridal suppliers in the industry, including Paddy McGurgan – Make Up Pro Store, Stephen McCusker Bespoke Hairdressing, Stephanie Burns Makeup and Margaret Mallon Hairdressing.  Amongst such great finalists, I was fortunate enough to hear my name called, and pick up the award for Bridal Beauty Supplier of the Year 2018! I’m so happy to have been recognised across the industry, and very proud to have won this award.

Penton Publications hosted the awards ceremony at a formal Gala dinner at the Crowne Plaza, Belfast, with Q Radio broadcasters Stephen Clements and Gareth Stewart hosting the event. Myself and the main man Ciaran got ourselves into our finest and enjoyed the fine company of Deborah K Design, Petticoat Lane Bridal, Forever Bridal Belfast and Angelic Bridal Banbridge. There was definitely plenty of noise coming from our table when the lovely Deborah K also won in her category for ‘Bridal Accessory’ Supplier 2018.

I’ve been extremely overwhelmed from all the well wishes and messages from family, friends, past and future brides and other businesses within the industry. It is very much appreciated – you all know who you are!

Here’s hoping that this achievement will lay the groundwork for future growth for Maid by Sinead Bridal Make-up.
