What a month it’s been for us… and still more to come!

Blink your eyes and the month has gone!  This is how January has felt for us here at UKGirlThing & Gents Events, and I’m sure the same wherever you are.  Before Christmas we moved into our beautiful new premises in Colwick, Nottingham and we got nicely settled in before the well-deserved Christmas break started.  Then it was back to work in January 2014 to one of the most eventful months we have ever had in the company’s history!

January 10th – The most exciting and nervous night for us!

January started with everyone recovering from hangovers after some hard partying over New Year’s but unfortunately there was also another emotion with the hangover – nerves!  We were all counting down the clock, nervously looking out for the 10th January as this was the day we were going to find out if we had won the best hen and stag provider 2014 at the Wedding Ideas Awards 2014.  As you may know, thankfully we did win and we still can’t quite believe it.  You can read more about the awards on our dedicated Wedding Ideas Awards page which talks more in detail about how we won, what the judges said and some photos from the night!  Once again though, a humungous thank you to all those that voted for us!

January 20th – “Reason to celebrate for hen and stag organisers”

Fast forward a few more days and the Nottingham Evening post got in touch to do a feature on us for our win. On the morning of Wednesday 22nd January 2014 an editor spoke to our Managing Director Larisa to find out more about UKGirlThing & Gents Events.  Believe it or not, for those of you that don’t know, UKGirlThing started business in a bedroom almost 9 years ago!  It has been a fast paced, exciting journey since the start with even more exclusive packages still to come, competitions to give away and more free downloads for all you lovely hens out there!

Unfortunately some of our team couldn’t be with us when we had our photo taken – one of the team members is enjoying paternity leave whilst the others are relishing a bit of sunshine in a winter getaway!
