On a sleepy and slow Friday afternoon, we received probably the most exciting email we have been sent to date from ELLE Decoration telling us that we had been nominated for Best British Brand at the British Design Awards!
We wanted to tell everyone we knew but we had to keep it under our hats. Sworn to secrecy, we had to sit tight and wait a few more weeks before we could let everyone know our exciting news!
Two weeks later we headed over to Jet Studios in the South of London for our nomination photo shoot which would appear in the October issue of ELLE Decoration. Bertie and Vicky joined the other nominees and spent the morning being snapped.
After a little run around, attacking the other Bertie in the room (Bertie on Wheels!) and stealing some treats, Bertie got back into his modelling ways and become a natural in front of the camera.
The ELLE Decoration team wanted to get the perfect image...
And here's the finished image which is in Elle Decoration this month:
