One of the things I hadn't anticipated when starting Lo & Behold, was the incredible community I would so quickly feel a part of. Over the last 11 months I have met so many incredible people and have made friends with people from all walks of life. I have felt enormous support and encouragement from fellow industry professionals and whilst some might suspect the wedding industry to be competitive and a little clique-y, I can 100% confirm this couldn't be further from the truth! We have in fact experienced the complete opposite!.We have been welcomed in with open arms and if there was ever a situation more suited to the #communityovercompetition then I can't think of one!
I have borrowed some content from The Hampshire Wedding Club to explain the concept, as who can say it better then the lady herself...
#quintessentiallyemerging is inspired The Rising Tide's ’20 on the rise’.
TheHampshireWeddingClub want to celebrate Hampshire individuals who are, in the words of Rising Tide…
“Making waves and raising the tide, rocking their respective industries through hard work, determination and creativity.”
Seen as the HWC loves to shout about all that is great about the Hampshire wedding industry, #quintessentiallyemerging is the perfect way to do just that! They have selected 5 businesses/people, who have significantly supported the Hampshire Wedding Industry, for different 5 categories, thus creating = 25 Wavemakers…
The Quarter 3 2018 #Quintessentiallyemerging suppliers have all been featured on their website, which you can visit here, and over the next 24 hours each wavemaker will feature on their @instagram page, so make sure you give them a follow!!
So there you go... what can I say but the biggest heartfelt thank you to Beth and Tasha for including us in this prestigious celebration... We have worked our arses off the last 11 months to get Lo & Behold to where it is now and we are both so incredibly proud of how far we've come and excited for the future and what it will bring!! Thank you for seeing the value in what we're doing.. it really means so much!! And a big ol' high five to the other Qtr 3 Wavemakers!! <3
