Mercii Williams, wedding and events co-ordinator at Oxnead Hall in Norwich - part of the Unique Norfolk Venues group, details how winning Venue of the Year at the 2017 Bride: The Wedding Awards has taken the venue from strength to strength.

Why did you enter the awards?

We believe Oxnead Hall is one of the most stunning venues in the world and we wanted everybody to know about it.

What was your reaction to winning the award?

Pride. We are so proud of our venues and our hard work in putting beautiful special occasions together with lovely people.

How has the award helped the business grow?

More people are aware of the venue and what we do, offering bespoke weddings in the beautiful Norfolk countryside. We love to boast about our award!

What advice would you give to a business entering the 2018 awards?

Keep making your clients smile - their happiness is everything.

Why should a couple nominate their wedding suppliers? 

Because everybody in the industry works so hard to ensure such a special and one-off occasion is perfect at every second. It’s about doing the little things that make it that much more special in the moment and working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure everything exceeds expectations. It’s such a competitive industry in all aspects of the big day, and if your supplier is able to make you feel as special as you deserve to feel and wow everybody, then they would love to be recognised. It’s the smiles on the day and the big ‘thank you’ at the end of it all that makes the months (and even years) of prep and hard work all worth it.
