Brierley Hill events firm vies to win wedding contest
5:00pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
A BRIERLEY Hill entrepreneur is hoping for his own big day after his events firm reached the finals of a wedding contest.
Lloyd Wothers, who owns event dressing business Venue Dress based on the Silver End Business Park off Brettell Lane, is in the running to win the English Wedding Awards 2013, which recognises wedding suppliers from around the country.
The firm, which Mr Wothers set up more than eight years ago following a marketing career, is one of two finalists vying for the award in the event decorator of the year category for the West Midlands region.
Judging is currently underway after members of the public nominated their favourite businesses.
Mr Wothers, from Kidderminster, expanded from selling just balloon decorations to providing essentials from chair covers to handcrafted stationery.
He said the news he had reached the finals came as a shock, adding: “I didn’t know anything about it until the organisers contacted me.
“It’s great to be in the finals - to see our hard work being recognised, particularly in today’s economic climate.
“Venue dressing is a real saturated market, especially with hobbyist venue dressers.
“But Venue Dress has exceptionally high standards and our remit has always been to offer only the genuine best.”
Mr Wothers, whose client list includes ITV, Toyota and Michelin, puts his success down to treating every wedding and event as if it were his own.
He will find out if he has won in October.
