Discussing the achievement, Jessica told the star, “It’s amazing; when I think back to 10 years ago, I was literally dropping out of university and wanted to start a company and didn’t realize we’d be so busy so quickly.

“After the pandemic, having lost everything for two years and not being able to work, to come back and still do work with people who still book us after all makes me really appreciate everything even more than I did before.”

The former Edge Hill Drama student said work has been very challenging throughout the pandemic, as the entertainment industry has taken a hit where events couldn’t happen.

The 31-year-old added: “It was going from working full seven days a week to locking up overnight, so we needed to get back up and motivated enough to start over.

“It was amazing that people supported me and supported us, and I think it’s a testament to the girls I’ve had who have worked for me for as long as we have and that’s why we’re here after 10 years.

“All I was dealing with during lockdown was cancellations; about 52 weddings, christenings and birthdays canceled continuously for two years.

“People were worried that if they booked the party wouldn’t take place while now I feel people are ready to go on and celebrate with families.

“I didn’t have money to pay my bills, so I thank the customers who came back and booked us.”

Her employer also described how she provided free entertainment to families onacebook Live during lockdown and helped track and trace at The Gerard Arms before work could resume.
