A prop hire and event styling business based in Norwich, Lou Lou Loves is going from strength to strength - confirmed at the 2017 Bride: The Wedding Awards when owner, Louise Flynn, picked up two awards. Named the Newcomer of the Year and scooping the Wedding Innovation Award, Lou Lou Loves is a prime example of a business which has reaped the rewards. Louise shares her story...

Why did you enter the 2017 EDP Bride: The Wedding Awards or were you nominated?

I was nominated for Newcomer of the Year and the Finishing Touches Award and then asked to attend the interview for the Wedding Innovation Award. 

What was your reaction to winning the award?

I was totally shocked and almost speechless, which is quite unusual for me. There were lots of well-established Norfolk wedding businesses and I was sure they would win rather than a small quirky business like mine. I was proved wrong.

How has this recognition helped your business develop and grow?

This year has seen my business grow enormously. I stumbled in to this industry three years ago, finding my own way, now I can happily say I'm an industry expert and feel confident in that. Brides- and grooms-to-be and other industry professionals now recognise my brand. I've collaborated with other award winners on weddings and exciting photo shoots.

What advice would you give to a business entering the 2018 awards?

Go for it. I didn't believe that I would get nominated let alone win. Small and big businesses are treated equally and judged just the same.

Why should a couple nominate one of their wedding suppliers in the 2018 awards?

It's a huge compliment to be nominated. Knowing that customers value your business and are willing to share this is very heartwarming.
