24 Jan 2019
Dorset wedding and event caterer, Beales Gourmet, picked up the Best Caterer award at the national Wedding Industry Awards, held at London’s Café de Paris on Wednesday 16th January 2019
The awards celebrated the very best wedding suppliers from around the country, with more than 400 guests in attendance.
Having won the regional South West Best Caterer award in November 2018, Beales Gourmet was put through to the national finals where judges voted them the top wedding caterer in the country.
The Wedding Industry Awards are based on feedback from actual customers, before an expert industry panel of judges chooses an overall winner. Collecting the accolades on stage were managing director, Tony Beales, and commercial manager, Justin Cohen.
Tony said: “You’ll never know how much this means to our whole team. This recognition on a national level is just incredible, and we’re genuinely proud to fly the flag for Dorset. We’re immensely lucky to have arguably some of the country’s best produce growing all around us, so we just use these to make some delicious dishes served by a friendly team to delight our customers.
"We really must thank our wedding couples for scoring us so highly," continued Tony. "These awards are so important to us because they are based on actual customer feedback.”
The venue run by Beales Gourmet, The Italian Villa at Compton Acres, also won the regional South West award for Best Venue, and was also a national finalist.
