The Wedding Industry Awards 2017
Hannah Elizabeth Bridal
‘Best Bridal Retailer Regional Finalist’
Having opened our doors in 2014 we are so thrilled to be nominated for the third year running as ‘Best Bridal Retailer in London and the South East’ which is both hugely exciting and rewarding for me and my lovely Hannah Elizabeth team of girls!
These awards are an amazing platform for businesses within the industry up and down the country from bridal boutiques, venues, make-up artists, photographers, florists, cake makers, wedding planners and many more to be recognised and awarded for offering an uncompromising and outstanding level of excellence. So, we were pretty chuffed to have been selected as a ‘Regional Finalist’ for the third year running for such a prestigious award.
These particular awards are judged and selected on your customer feedback and reviews, and we were overwhelmed with such amazing and heart-warming feedback from every one of our amazing Hannah Elizabeth Brides!
Doing what we love and putting our heart and soul into delivering a wonderful and memorable service to all our brides comes as a given to us. But having read such wonderful reviews about us and our service was gave us such happiness and satisfaction! It meant that we had achieved all our aims and fulfilled our promise to our brides who we welcome into the Hannah Elizabeth family!
The awards took place on Monday 21st November at the gorgeous venue Millbridge Court in Farnham, Surrey. So, myself and our team members Kelly and Laura (minus Lauren who was nursing her beautiful new little pink bundle) got ourselves dolled up to attend the awards ceremony on a cold winters evening. Excited at the prospect of a wonderful evening mingling with lots of industry talents and generally enjoying a glass of bubbly or two and soaking up the amazing atmosphere we weren’t disappointed with the beautiful venue and company.
On arrival we were greeted by a tasty gin cocktail from the fab Beetle Juice Cocktail Bar (http://www.beetle-juice.co.uk/). Moving over to a stunning and unique display which was both beautifully sweet on the eye and the tooth, award winning caterers the Kalm Kitchen (http://kalmkitchen.co.uk/wedding-catering-surrey) created a visually unique display of wonderful canape style desserts and macaroons on sticks. Hung beautifully from above was a stunning chandelier of delicate, vibrant flowers and scatterings of deep purple hydrangeas amongst the deserts.
The official award giving ceremony was kicked off with a mannequin challenge to help build the suspense! The girls and I struggled to keep a straight face as our brides may know we are super chatty. With the awards handed out to lots of deserving businesses, and whilst we did not receive one ourselves, we were reminded by Damien the host, that having got this far and being selected from such a huge range of suppliers was a commendation. So despite not winning the top prize we were delighted to go home with our ‘Regional Bridal Finalist’ badge which meant the world to us!

Here are some of the very lovely reviews by our amazing ‘Hannah Elizabeth Brides’:
“Hannah Elizabeth was the one place that I experienced the idyllic bridal experience that you dream of from a little girl. There is no pressure at any time and Hannah and her team are simply wonderful and so supportive for your ideas and want to know how they can fit into your wedding, not just trying to sell dresses. I loved every time I had to visit and was a bit sad the day before the wedding as it meant I didn’t have a valid reason to visit any more!”
Mrs Kelly Wainwright (Hull)
“Hannah and her team were incredibly accommodating, kind, supportive and patient. Before finding her, I visited many other shops in the hope to find my perfect dress and none of them were as professional and friendly than the team at Hannah Elizabeth. Not only were we made to feel incredibly welcome but the dresses are exquisite and it is obvious how much proud the ladies are of all their gowns. I feel privileged to have been able to wear a dress from such a high end, beautiful boutique.”
Mrs Amy Webb (Parsons)
“After having a couple of awful visits with other bridal shops I went to Hannah. Wow what a difference, the service was amazing so personal and friendly. They all gave honest advise and recommendations and were so helpful in every way. I ended up buying not just my dress but my shoes and hair grips which were handmade. Hannah was also helpful as she also recommended a photographer who we also then used. Without a doubt I would always recommended Hannah & her team.” Mrs Rebecca Swain
“Can’t praise Hannah enough. You are made to feel so special from the minute you step into the boutique. Her attention to detail and professionalism shine. I visited 8+ bridal shops for my dress but I knew when I stepped into Hannah’s immaculate shop I would find my dress there. Now happily married I am sad that I can’t go back anymore…..!” Mrs Cheryl Howard
“Beautiful shop and fantastic staff. They provide a conscientious one-to-one service and did everything to ensure I found my perfect gown. And it was perfect! I trusted them 100% throughout the whole process, they made it easy and enjoyable. I cannot thank them enough, such a wonderful experience with the Hannah Elizabeth Bridal girls. My Maid of Honour has already booked an appointment there for her wedding gown!“
Mrs Victoria Thorne
“From the moment I walked into Hannah Elizabeth’s beautiful boutique, I knew I was in for a fun afternoon! Hannah and Lauren were friendly, professional and made me feel very special as a bride to be. They suggested options, listened and really made me feel like one of their family. I ordered my dress that afternoon! After service was equally as helpful, Hannah kept me updated and made me feel reassured every step of the way. I can’t thank her enough and really hope she wins this award”
Mrs Catherine Goodchild (Leigh)
“Hannah’s boutique is so beautiful! From the moment you make an appointment here the experience begins. The detail in the shop is simply stunning with a good selection of dresses and accessories to fit a range of budgets.”
Mrs Hannah Taylor
Thank you ladies for these amazing reviews, we cannot thank you enough!
