A fledging wedding shop business has struck double at an annual award ceremony just a year after launching.
Isaac Charles Bridal House, based in Burlington Court close to New Street station, took home two gongs from last night's 2015 Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce awards as it targets a £500,000 turnover by 2017.
The business was recognised for its excellence in the customer service and social media categories.
Manager Ruth Rawson said: "Twelve months ago we embarked on an ambitious five-year business development plan to achieve our goal of becoming number one for bridal in the Midlands and beyond.
"We have reached, and in many cases exceeded, each and every target we had set ourselves to achieve in the first year."
Since launching, the business has grown to seven staff and relocated from Great Barr to the city centre base.
Judging panel chairman Russell Jeans said: "Isaac Charles is a highly deserved winner of these awards. They demonstrated tremendous determination to follow through their business plan to achieve their goals.
"They also established a robust relationship with their suppliers which has resulted in their customers get first sight of new designs.
"In the social media category, we were impressed by how a small business can utilise the power of social media to generate customer interest and loyalty.
"In the other category, they demonstrated a customer service strategy centred on family values with an ambition to achieve a world class standard."
All winners from last night's ceremony, held at the ICC, are members of the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce.
