Ladies hats and fascinators

Here at Simply Devine, we’ve had a pretty successful year in winning very prestigious awards.  It is always humbling, yet exciting to be nominated for awards, and this year we have been extremely fortunate – and grateful – to win awards and be nominated in others.

We kicked off the year with two wins in the English Wedding Awards – Specialist Supplier of the Year and Wedding Boutique and Accessories supplier of the Year. We have been very fortunate to be involved in these awards for the past four years.

Then we picked up the Customer Service Excellence Award in the SME News UK Enterprise Awards.

We have also been shortlisted in the Small Awards Bricks and Clicks category and the Boutique Star awards.

More recently, Simply Devine has been nominated by customers in the Yorkshire Post, Harrogate Advertiser and York Evening Press business awards, the Hydroguard Group Awards, the Prestige Awards and the Yorkshire Choice Awards.

“Of course, it’s always good to win awards, but there are some many fantastic small businesses in this country, that we know the competition will be tough. But it is our wonderful customers who make this business worthwhile.  Making them look and feel a million dollars is what makes our day.” Said owner Liz Devine-Wright, who will celebrate 19 years in business just after Christmas.

“We are extremely grateful to our lovely customers, who often enter our shop with no idea of how to wear or style special occasion hats and fascinators, and it gives us a real buzz knowing they will look amazing on their son or daughter’s wedding photographs.”
