A LISBURN woman who only went into business two and a half years ago, has been named the Wedding Stationery Retailer of the Year for Northern Ireland.

Marian Doncaster's firm 'Wedding Inspirations', located on Bridge Street, was selected by Gold Link Stationery for the coveted title because of the excellent customer service and satisfaction.

A delighted Marian, 50, said; "I am delighted to have received this award and look forward to maintaining the excellent service already being provided." Marian decided to take a career break and set up her own business doing something she really enjoyed.

She said: "The purpose of the business is to provide customers with a flexible approach to choosing their wedding stationery. The main focus is on the customer's specific requirements. While the shop stocks ready-made invitation cards, many brides prefer to have the cards individually designed.

"I have always been interested in craft making and make teddies, dolls' houses, patchworking, knitting, sewing and of course card making."

"During the last two years it has been good to see the business grow and to play a small part in helping the bride and groom to enjoy a perfect wedding day," she added.

Geraint Evans, Sales Manager at Gold Link Stationery commented on Marian's success: "It is quite a big thing to be given this award and Marian has done exceptionally well to achieve this after only two and a half years of trading."
