A Cramlington business is going up in the world after winning a top award for the second year in a row.

Balloon Bedlam picked up the Outstanding Customer Service prize at the North of England Wedding Awards 2014, held at the National Railway Museum in York.

Business owner Kathie Turnbull said: “We put in for the awards amongst other wedding professionals thinking no way would we win again, but how wrong could we have been.

“Dealing with the biggest days of a couple’s lives does have its stresses, but it’s worth it when we see the brides and grooms comments.

“Starting out with just a small helium balloon canister to being an award-winning decoration specialist is amazing.

“We are overjoyed and thrilled to have been noticed through out the events industry.”

The company hires out an array of balloon displays and arches, as well as chair covers, centrepieces, table décor, bars, chocolate and cookie tables, sweet tables and candy carts, and more.
