wedding award

Churchtown Wedding Cars won Wedding Transport Supplier of the Year at the Wedding Industry Awards 2017. The company had claimed the regional title at the end of last year and beat of tough competition to claim the top prize.

Olympic silver medallist Roger Black hosted the awards ceremony at the exclusive Cafe de Paris in London.

Based on a combination of factors including customer service and value for money, the awards are given out with a large emphasis on customer feedback as the most important factor.

Steve Mann, owner of Churchtown Wedding Cars, said: “This year, customers were also asked about specific things that they felt went above and beyond the call of duty and why they chose to book with Churchtown Wedding Cars instead of other companies. Obviously the majority of the responses were in relation to the cars but the friendliness of everyone involved also scored highly.

“Brides particularly liked that Churchtown Wedding Cars only do one wedding a day and that there is no limit to the number of journeys or time allowed for photographs.

Steve took over the firm around 18 months ago from previous owners Pat and Roy Cropper, who had run the business for 22 years, and says he was able to build on the excellent reputation it already earned.

The company has vehicles it uses for weddings, a Beaurfort, an Imperial, a Mercedes and a Dorchester and Steve added that there are plans in place for future expansion, including new premises and different cars.

The company also works with venues and suppliers in the town promoting wedding services under the banner, ‘Radiance, The Wedding Professionals’

Radiance is a group of suppliers including Debonair Brides, Tarleton Photography, Smileomatic Photobooths and of course Churchtown Wedding Cars who organise the events on a voluntary basis spending all the exhibitors fees on targeted local advertising. A number of local venues have seen booking rise considerably since Radiance’s formation, according the group.

This collaboration, as well as the work Churchtown Wedding Cars does for Gift Of A Wedding Charity ,helped set the business apart from its competition and seal the win.

Bride and Groom

It seems like you can't log into Facebook/Instagram/Snapchat these days without your feed being covered in wedding-related posts. Sharing photos of your engagement, bachelorette party, or wedding day can be a great way to show off your bridal bliss to your community, but does everyone you've ever met really need to know every time you try out a potential wedding-day nail-polish color or get in a fight with your wedding planner? When it comes to wedding-planning posts, at what point does sharing become oversharing, especially before the big day has even happened?

"As a bride, just like with any other milestone life event, you need to stop and think before you post," says Jodi R.R. Smith of Mannersmith Etiquette Consulting, "because there are a number of things that could be potentially hazardous to you and your event as you move forward." How much of the planning process you want to share on the Internet is inevitably a personal decision, but here are five things you should keep in mind about oversharing on social media before the big day.

Consider Who's Seeing Your Posts

Unless you want all 900 of your Facebook friends at your wedding (856 of whom you haven't spoken to since college), you may want to pause before you share certain details. "The second you get engaged, the minute you put it on your feed, everyone who follows you assumes they're close enough to be invited to the wedding," says Smith. "Because they were included in the initial excitement, they now feel they should be included in the event." Save sharing any specifics about the wedding (like the date and location) until you send save-the-dates; that way, only the people who are actually invited will know to show up at the event.

Realize You May Be Offending People

Remember how crappy it felt in high school when you didn't get invited to someone's Sweet 16? Even though you thought you two were close? And then you had to listen to everyone talk about it during lunch? For some of your Facebook and Instagram friends, that's what it will feel like when they realize they didn't make the cut for your big day. "Every time you post something, it's a reminder they're not included," says Smith. To avoid any hurt feelings, Smith suggests using technology to your advantage to create a private Facebook group or text thread so you can easily share any intimate details with your nearest and dearest, and anyone who's not going to be invited won't feel left out.

Maintain a Little Bit of Mystery

As far as things to look forward to on a wedding day go, the big dress/cake/venue reveals are some of the most exciting parts (aside from committing to spend the rest of your lives with someone you love, that is). "If a bride posts everything—every dress fitting, cake tasting, meeting with her wedding planner—there are really no surprises," says Smith. "As a bride, you don't want people to have wedding fatigue by the time they get to your event." Smith suggests posting about the wedding once every other day at most; anything beyond that can be overkill.

Don't Be Negative

It's no secret that wedding planning is stressful, and at times there will be things you'll want to complain about to anyone who will listen, but a social-media page is not the right place to air your grievances. "Getting resources and suggestions [from social media] can be good," says Smith, "but be careful about writing something that's specifically negative, like 'I went to this bakery and that was disgusting.'" There are many, many ways it can backfire on you (like if you end up having to order the "disgusting" cake you posted about for whatever reason), and it will end up sending some pretty major bridezilla vibes out into the community.

Make Sure You and Your Fiancé Are on the Same Page

This advice should go for the entire planning process (and for the relationship as a whole, really), but the two of you should have an honest conversation about how much you want to share in regard to the event so that no one feels uncomfortable. "The guideline is that you default to being more private rather than more public," says Smith. "You can always add additional information at a later date and share more later on, but once info is out there, it's impossible to take it back."

Brandon Hamilton's wedding

When it comes to wedding entertainment, the trends are always changing.

At my wedding on April 17, 2016, my beautiful wife Chelsey turned the reception into an epic performance. As a former Arizona Cardinals cheerleader, she gathered her girls and choreographed a dance. Not only did it entertain, it also energized the crowd. One of many ways to change up the reception flow.

When it comes to technology, DJ's now have their hands on the best of the best technology.

"Keeping the crowd entertained is key. The one thing that has changed is everything is computerized and on hard drives. With technology now and access to apple music and other resources, it’s hard not to have a song that guests want," said Manny Torres, DJ with Push Play Entertainment.

We've all seen photo booths, but this is something new.

“It’s the same concept as a photo booth, but instead of photos we make flip books. We take a seven second video and turn it into a flip book, so it’s an interactive party favor that guests get to walk away with at the reception,” said Amy Wahl with Flip Book Memories.

Plus, there are always new ideas as far as guest books go.

“We are offering rustic wood themed guest boxes. Guests can write on the wood hearts and it can be displayed in the home for years to come," said Marc Pendergraft with Engrave My Memories.

Whether you choose a new trend or create your own idea, making your wedding unique is key.

The Bridesmaid 'Ask'

As someone who half-heartedly struggles through any crafting activity, I agonized a bit over how to officially ask my bridal party. I hoped to invite my favorite ladies to be part of my big day in a fun and creative way. But due to social media examples of insanely beautiful and original ideas (thanks but no thanks Pinterest), I was feeling the pressure.

Fortunately, I realized that I'm lucky to have some quality individuals to stand by my side, who wouldn't care how they were requested. Creating some over-the-top, totally uncharacteristic bridesmaids box would be bizarre and unnecessary. Upon some reflection, I figured out I wanted to go with the classic "Will you help me tie the knot?" wording. From there, I paid a visit to "old faithful" aka the Kate Spade outlet at Nebraska Crossing. I found a simple rose gold bangle with a bow (which would match my ring and wedding accent color), so I scooped up 7 of those pretties.

My next step was to reach out to my friend Christina, who is an insanely talented custom cookie baker, and founder at Sugar Chic Design in Omaha. I had originally hoped to ask them to help me "tie the knot" on an edible confection, but it would have too much going on on one sugar cookie. Christina experimented and realized she could write my bridesmaids names on cookies in rose gold glitter and it would look less cramped. She hand painted an elegant floral design onto a sparkly gold and white polka dot background, then added the rose gold script. I could not have been more pleased with how they turned out. Everyone raved about them!

My last move was to figure out how to package the bracelet and cookie in a cute, mailable way. I have a unique situation, where my lady friends live all over the country; I knew I'd have to ship parcels to Denver, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Rochester, Atlanta, Chicago, and one locally in Omaha. Luckily, my go-to Target (Tar-jay Boutique) did an amazing collaboration with Sugar Paper LA, which included these slate blue beauties that also happened to match my wedding color palette. I used extra gold foil tissue paper to make sure the cookies wouldn't break, and packed them into padded envelopes. The end result felt fun, but not too fussy, and they all said yes, so I'd call this a success!

Wedding Tips

When it comes to your wedding, we're sure you want to be in the best shape ever - from head to toe. And one slightly temperamental feature, that we're sure you're concerned about, is your skin. If you want it to look flawless and glowing on your wedding, we can help. Here are a few ways to get your skin in the best shape.

Drink water, LOTS of it.

Sure, you've been told to drink water since you were a kid. But when it comes to your skin and your body on the whole, water works like magic. The best thing you can do, to get the skin of your dreams for your wedding day, is to stay hydrated. Water helps in all essential bodily processes, and prevents issues like acne and dry skin. So keep a bottle handy all the time before, and after your wedding.

Stick to a skincare routine that you are sure works for you.

While we're all for experimenting when it comes to wardrobe and make-up, stay away from experimentation when it comes to your skin. If you have a skincare routine that you know works for you, stick to it. Also, if you have problem areas, make sure you pay extra attention while taking care of them, pre-wedding.

Stay away from food that messes with your skin.

Another thing to take control of, to get flawless skin for your wedding, is to make sure you eat the right kind of food. If you're aware of certain foods that cause you to break out, or affect your skin negatively, stay away from them. Stick to food that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, like berries, dark chocolate and fish like salmon, to mention a few.

Take a break from make-up sometimes.

In the time leading up to your wedding, give yourself a few make-up free days. Give your skin some time to breathe, instead of clogging up your pores. The days of your wedding ceremonies are going to be make-up heavy anyway, so in order to prevent any sudden breakouts or skin problems, keep your skin clear of any products. Pat on a tinted moisturiser with SPF, if you need to. And if you are wearing make-up, make sure to remove it completely, at the end of the day, and gently cleanse your face as well.
