Two town centre businesses were off to Wembley to take part in the National SME awards.

George James Bridal’s Nicola Harris ended off a fantastic year at the mammoth event

“I was beyond honoured to make the final of the National SME Business Awards for Service Excellence held at Wembley Stadium. 

“Alas we didn’t win this time but we were up against some phenomenal businesses and I was so proud to stand alongside them. Another HUGE thank you to my incredible brides, family & friends. What a wonderful year it has been!

George James Bridal won two other awards recently: Bedford Town Centre Business of the Year (sponsored by BedfordBID) and Best Bridal Retailer at the Four Counties Wedding Awards.

Nicola, who has expanded her business in to a new shop on Bromham Road  has another special event coming up with the birth of her first child.

Meanwhile over at Kel’s Belles in Clair Court, Lime Street successful beauty apprentice Chloe Field was among the line-up at Wembley too.

The London event followed another evening of success when she was selected for a special prize by Brooks Hair & Beauty Spa apprenticeship team for a Bedford College award.

Her boss Kelly was a student in the Hair & Beauty department, worked on cruise ships and 5 star salons before starting her own business. Kelly undertook professional training at Bedford College to improve her skills in training others.
