Who would have thought in our first year of The Wedding Gateway we would have been a sponsor of one of the major categories in Wedding Ideas Magazine Awards 2014? If you had told me back in April 2013 when we launched our first site I wouldn’t have believed it myself but as the year passed and more and more businesses joined us we thought what better way to raise our profile and gain some great PR for the business.
We sponsored the ‘Best Stationery’ category and the PR began back in November when the magazine did a ‘meet the sponsors’ online article about us and a link to the site was featured on their Awards section of the website.
Through the December and January issues of the magazine we had our logo as part of the magazine features on the upcoming awards and we were again featured in the February edition when the award winners were announced.
Outside of our business being featured on the website and the magazine there was, of course the glitz and glamour of the awards evening itself. Hosted at The Tower Hotel next to one of the most recognisable landmarks in London as you approached the door you knew you were in for an amazing night.
Luckily for me the ‘Best Stationery’ award was the second award of the night so I had time for a nice glass of wine but not too many so I didn’t have to worry about falling off my heels! I was delighted to present the award on the night to Sarah Wants.
We want to thank Wedding Ideas Magazine for such an amazing night and look forward to next year too!
