A WEDDING planner is thrilled to have received a mark of approval from the CEO of Anne Summer.

Michelle Healy has been awarded a Women On Wednesday or #WOW from Jacqueline Gold which celebrates female business owners.

Michelle entered her company Ladybelle Weddings, which she started 18 months ago, by tweeting Jacqueline who then looks for businesses that are interesting and have strong brand values.

Her tweet was retweeted to Jacqueline’s 30,000 followers and Michelle received a #WOW badge to display on her website.

The 34-year-old, of Woodland Road, Astley, said: “I’ve been trying to get a #WOW since I started the business by tweeting week in week out.

“I was driving and when I got home I had 26 twitter notifications on my phone - I didn't know what was going on. Twitter and Facebook are so important to businesses nowadays so I am very pleased.”
