Over the years, Creatiques has continued to go from strength to strength through a constant desire to grow the business in whatever way is needed to stay successful and keep its customers happy.

Andrew Pearce, founder of Creatiques said: ‘We were delighted to be recognised for this award and indeed to have been shortlisted for four awards on the night was amazing.’

Since the company started trading over a quarter of a century ago they have out grown several premises.

It opened its new shop in Albert Road in July 2014 which offers and extensive selection of bridal gowns.

And it has recently become stockist for two new labels House of Mooshki and Enzoani, both exquisite and elegant designers, bringing their current range of designer collections to seven.

‘The team have worked so hard since we have moved into the new premises.

‘Now we have extended our offering to our customers, we are busier than ever,’ said Andrew.

There has been a step change in the business with the merging of the shops and a range of the new services. But, through all the change, customers are still raving about the business.

Robert Pearce, partner in the firm added: ‘We were all very excited to have won this award.

‘Our focus is always to be the very best at everything we do and winning Best Retailer was a real testament to the hard work we have all put in to make this happen.’
