Romsey-based Cathedral Cars picked up the title of Best Wedding Transport Supplier in The 2014 Wedding Industry Awards
The very best of the country’s wedding suppliers were celebrating their successes on Wednesday night at The 2014 Wedding Industry Awards, including Cathedral Cars from Romsey, who were named national winners of Best Wedding Transport Supplier.
Hosted by Sky News’ Sarah Hewson and held at The Bloomsbury Ballroom in London, the awards recognised the very best in service, creativity, innovation, professionalism and passion.
From gowns, flowers, hair and make-up to venues, transport, entertainment and photography, every winner was cheered by the 450 strong audience and everyone on the shortlist for each of the 24 categories had much to celebrate.
Brian & Liz Bennett, owners of Cathedral Cars, said it was a complete honour to be recognised as the National Winners of Best Wedding Transport Supplier: “We travelled to London in order to collect our award for being Regional Winners for London & the South East and were completely stunned when we were announced as the National Winners as well” said Brian.
“The wonderful comments we received from our happy couples that voted for us were simply overwhelming and proof that we’re clearly doing something our clients like!” said Brian. “It’s fantastic not only for us but for the entire local area that we’ve been recognised nationally. It’ll hopefully put Hampshire back on the map.”
1,250 companies entered the 2014 awards. 23,000 votes were cast by newlyweds which decided the Regional Shortlist. These select few then went through another round of critical judging by an expert panel who decided the Regional Winners, before a final process of judging to decide last Wednesday’s National Winners.
Damian Bailey, founder of The Wedding Industry Awards was thrilled with the evening and with the response to the awards themselves.
“The Wedding Industry Awards really have become the gold standard for wedding excellence in this country. Everyone can enter and because of the unique way the votes are scored, big companies are on the same footing as individuals. For couples, seeing our logo on the website of a potential supplier is a real guide to quality and we know that the list of nominees and winners on our website is a big hit with brides and grooms. We’ve done all the hard work in selecting the very best and couples can just enjoy choosing top quality suppliers with no worries.
“This was our third awards and the standard of entrants was higher than ever,” continued Damian. “It’s becoming harder and harder to pick winners from such amazing shortlists where everyone demonstrates such skill. It was great to celebrate everyone’s achievements and then party all night!”
