We were furiously refreshing the Twitter feed of @creativeoceanic last night, the organisers of The Northern Ireland Wedding Awards.
The awards took place last night the 22nd February in the Europa Hotel, Belfast, and unfortunately due to my ill health recently we were unable to attend!
So we waited with batted breath as the tweets were coming in thick and fast. Lots of other awards had already been announced including venue, stylists, flowers etc, and next came the wedding stationery, and there it was, Ryan Patrick Design, Western Winner of Stationery of The Year!!!
We literally couldn’t sit still! We had previously been placed Top 5 Wedding Stationer in the whole of Ireland with the Wedding Journal Reader Awards, which was held in Dublin in 2015, but to win this award at the beginning of 2016 is just amazing!
We have worked so hard to take our passion for art and design, and turn it from a bedroom business to a fully fledged company, and in such a short period as 3 years! We are always pushing and trying to do better, to take the business bigger and bigger. 2016 has so far seen the launch of a full refresh of our wedding stationery collections and launching of our new online store on the website, a lot of work but we are so proud of what we have achieved!
What a fantastic kick off to 2016, lets hope the rest of the year is as exciting!
