January has been pretty crazy for team JP! Mr P and I headed off for a well-earned break in veeerrry cold northern Lapland just after New Year, where I celebrated turning 30 (booo!) and we did lots of lovely wintery things, including catching a full on show from the spectacular aurora borealis (yay!).
Just a few days after getting back to reality in good old blighty, we were off to Cafe de Paris in London for the national final of The Wedding Industry Awards 2015. Since winning the regional title for Best Newcomer in the South West, I was again just happy to share a good night out with industry buddies, drink a little too much champagne and soak up the atmosphere.

Shocked was not really the right word when I picked up not only the national Best Wedding Industry Newcomer award, but also the Best Wedding Industry Website award! I think I nearly fell over- what an honour, and against such stiff competition!

It should be noted at this point that a LOT of my success in the website category is down to Mr P himself, since he’s the one who really knows how this technological wonder works! He’s also really great at posing with me in photobooths.

I won’t blither on about it too much as you can find loooaaads of info about the awards process, judging and all the other winners here.
Needless to say, I am so grateful to the judges, organisers, the incredible Mr P, and most of all my super-cool couples, without whom I would not be so happy right now! Love you all…
