Guides for Brides Customer Service Awards 2022
The annual Guides for Bride’s awards recognise and reward businesses that provide excellent services and achieve outstanding client satisfaction.
The Covid pandemic was a difficult time for the wedding industry, so it felt very needed to recognise its success and celebrate it.
Guides for Brides offer prizes to their wedding suppliers according to their customer service records, and there are over 20 different main categories. The very best of bridal wear, through to catering, videography, transport and unique venues are all recognised.

It was so exciting to find out that my small wedding business was shortlisted for a Guides for Brides award back in February this year.
The finalists all produce beautiful jewellery for weddings and special occasions so it was an honour to appear along side these companies in this year’s competition:
- Caan Thomas Jewellery Designer
- Elizabeth Anne Norris
- Lover’s Rock
- Rachel Sokhal Bridal Accessories
Many congratulations to all the finalists in this and other areas of the wedding industry.
The Awards Ceremony
The excitement didn’t stop there as I was then invited to the awards ceremony for a night of celebration! This year, the awards ceremony was a fundraising gala for their charity partner, VOW for Girls. Held on Wednesday 9th March 2022 at the prestigious Oxford Town hall we enjoyed a delicious dinner, celebrate the successes of all our finalists and winners, and raised funds for this great organisation. Founder, Alison Hargreaves gave a speech before the awards presentation. It was a wonderful night and a chance to meet new people.
UK Winner Category Jewellery
To top an already exhilarating night my name was called in the first of the prize categories, Jewellery. Elizabeth Anne Norris had won the best customer service award in the jewellery category. I could not be more proud of this achievement in the UK wedding industry. This was my second award in 2022 and I think I was buzzing for days afterwards. My customer services award trophy from Guides for Brides now sits proudly in my jewellery workshop in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. I’m so thrilled to be able to help couples create their own wedding rings and to be recognised for doing a good job at it too!
Thank you so much Guides for Brides.
