Talented Lancashire-based singer Howard Wing has won the coveted title of Best Live Wedding Entertainment at the Wedding Industry Awards.

The in-demand 39-year-old married father of two, from Fleetwood, has performed at over 150 different venues across the UK, hosting and performing at over 750 weddings, events and celebrity galas along the way.

He has shared the stage with well-known British and international acts including former X-Factor winners Matt Cardle and Shayne Ward, soul legend Beverley Knight, not to mention his all-time hero, international singing star Michael Bublé.

Leaving school aged 16, without any qualifications, Howard went to work with his dad in the family business, manufacturing and fitting garage doors on the Fylde coast, but his heart was always set on pursuing a singing career.

Howard’s first taste of the stage came at an open mic night in his home town and he went on to front a local band, playing guitar and writing songs. It was only when the band split up that he realised he had the confidence and talent to go it alone and perform solo.

Following his marriage to wife Sam in 2004, he decided to become a full-time wedding singer and, in 2013, he channelled his wedding knowledge and published his first book titled “The Best Wedding You’ve Ever Been To”, which provides a first-hand insight into the world of modern-day weddings, helping couples get the most out of their special day.

As if Howard isn’t busy enough with wedding singing he has also posed naked for a charity calendar, will be speaking at a marketing conference for DJs and is launching a coaching program for artists who would like a career within the industry.

Howard says: “I am overwhelmed and utterly delighted at being awarded Best Wedding Entertainment at The Wedding Industry Awards.

“I’ve always loved singing but never had the confidence to do anything about it until I was 17. Then when my wife and I attended a friends’ wedding in Ibiza, I was truly inspired by the wedding singer and decided that was what I was going to do!

“I am living the dream! It’s just a shame my dad didn’t get to see this, he sadly passed away last August, whilst on holiday with my mum. He was incredibly proud of me.”

Howard’s book “The Best Wedding You’ve Ever Been To” is available to purchase at www.howardwing.co.uk/my-book priced £12.99.
