Welcome to the I Do Wedding Awards 2020
Now in its sixth year, the I Do Wedding Awards are highly regarded as one of the top markers of a high-quality wedding supplier and this evening is eagerly anticipated in the local wedding industry’s calendar. Once again the evening will take place in the stunning Sheffield City Hall Ballroom on Tuesday 12th May 2020. This prestigious event will bring together the area's finest wedding suppliers as voted by newlyweds from across the Yorkshire and Humberside and East Midlands regions.
Spotlight on the 2019 Awards

Decided entirely by the votes of the couples who have personally used these wedding suppliers for their own special days, the 2019 awards saw over 400 entrants, with over 130 making the finals and 29 being announced as category winners.
The red carpet entrance signalled the arrival of our sparkling and dapper guests, who were greeted with a champagne drinks reception to welcome them to the evening’s festivities.
Host for the evening, local celebrity and top DJ, Stephanie Hirst, welcomed over 250 guests into the ballroom as they made their way to their seats while the talented Alexandra the Violinist played in the background. Guests then sat down to enjoy a fine dining four course meal, which they enjoyed to the vocal stylings of solo artist Rose Devine.
Raising Funds for Charity!
As part of the awards, each year we choose a charity to support and raise much needed funds for. This year, we chose the Children’s Air Ambulance; a totally self-funded and yet highly important charity.
Every penny raised at the event was Donated to The Children’s Air Ambulance. Nothing was deducted to cover administration.

A charity prize draw was held on the evening where we raffled off prizes donated by many of the generous wedding suppliers who attended the night. Guests donated a minimum of £10 for a Willy Wonka style chocolate bar in the hopes of bagging a golden ticket inside to win a prize. The wonderful Joanne from Ace Party also generously donated the use of her Roulette and Blackjack tables for the drinks reception, with all proceeds from this going to our chosen charity.
