How has the recognition helped your business grow?

We are now recognised as Mr & Mrs Sweeties wherever we go in Suffolk and Norfolk. The response has been amazing and we are now opening our own traditional sweet shop in Southwold.

What advice would you give to a business on entering the awards?

If you get the chance to enter the 2018 awards then do it; it's a fantastic experience and is a great way to promote your business.

Why should a couple nominate their wedding suppliers in the awards?

If you feel that you have chosen a wedding supplier who has gone above and beyond to help make your day that extra bit special then you should nominate them.
