We catch up with Amelia Garwood, the 2017 Bride: The Wedding Awards Hair & Beauty Stylist of the Year
A hairdresser and make-up artist for 24 years, Amelia Garwood was awarded the Hair & Beauty Stylist of the Year title at the 2017 Bride: The Wedding Awards. Here, she shares her winner's story.
Did you enter the awards or were you nominated?
I was nominated by one of my brides.
What was your reaction to winning the award?
I was thrilled to be nominated let alone win so when I won I was bowled over.
How has the recognition helped your business grow?
The promotion by Archant and the coverage of the awards has raised my profile enormously and I have a lot of enquiries from brides who know I have won an award, which give me more kudos and gives them confidence in my abilities.
What advice would you give to a business entering the awards?
If you are thinking of entering the awards I would say go for it. I have had nothing but a positive experience and I thoroughly enjoyed the awards evening too.
Why should a couple nominate their wedding suppliers?
If you are thinking of nominating one of your suppliers I would say that is the biggest thank you you could give them. It shows that you think they are the best and the nomination alone is amazing.
