Decided entirely by the votes of the brides and grooms who have personally used these suppliers, the 2018 awards saw over 400 entrants.
In true glitz style, a red carpet arrival and champagne reception welcomed the evenings guests who were made to feel a million dollars as they mingled and excitedly conversed about the festivities to come.
Host for the evening, Stephanie Hirst, welcomed over 250 guests to a delicious four course meal whilst local musician, James Sunderland took to the stage, entertaining with his soothing sounds on the keyboard.
Talk About a Charitable Event!
Part of the awards, as well as honouring our local wedding suppliers, is to raise much needed funds for local charities. The chosen charity for 2018 was Prostate Cancer UK, who fund groundbreaking research, drive improvements in treatment, and fight injustice in care.
Every penny raised at the event was Donated to Prostate Cancer UK. Nothing was deducted to cover administration.
