A florist in Pocklington has received some blooming marvellous news after being named a finalist in the 2014 North of England Wedding Awards.

For the second year running, Blooming Occasions, on Market Street, run by mother and daughter team Jo and Kirsty Grice, has been selected as a potential winner for the top award.

The North of England Wedding Awards, in association with The Wedding Guide UK, are Yorkshire and North East England’s most prestigious awards for client service excellence.

The awards recognise those businesses which go the extra mile for their customers, providing outstanding service and products, inspiring their customers to want to actively and positively promote them.

Jo said: “It’s a real achievement, it makes us feel good about what we do. The weddings are really important to us, it’s what we excel at.”

The awards ceremony will take place at York Racecourse on 1 September.
