Bassmead Manor, near St Neots, Cambridgeshire, looked resplendent as the finest wedding suppliers in the East Midlands congregated to find out the regional winners of the Wedding Industry Awards, 2015. With more entries than ever before and more than 30,000 votes cast across the country, this has been the toughest year to date.

The East Midlands wedding industry turned out in all their glory to represent their region. Photographers mixed with florists, venue stylists chatted to videographers and a sense of support and camaraderie blossomed beneath the beams of the barn. It was clear from the start of the champagne reception to the end of the awards presentation that wedding suppliers in the East Midlands heartily endorse and celebrate the successes of their colleagues and peers.

TWIA founder Damian Bailey presented awards in 25 categories, with an additional 10 wedding businesses receiving highly commended recognitions as well. Voted for by genuine brides and grooms from the past 12 months, the regional winners had also impressed a panel of expert judges. While voters scored each entrant in areas including customer service, the judges examined every business’ products, service and brand.

With a vintage photobooth and cocktail bar, exemplary styling and live food stations provided by Galloping Gourmet, industry professionals took the place of guests for a change and were able to let their hair down as they celebrated their hard work over the past 12 months.

It was the perfect opportunity for small, independent businesses to network with each other, whilst also emphasising the fact that couples don’t have to source national suppliers for their wedding day when there is such a wealth of talent right on their own doorsteps.

By collating a regional shortlist, the Wedding Industry Awards has created a go-to compendium of talented local wedding suppliers for East Midlands couples and, of course, couples can now have the pick of the very best with the newly-appointed regional winners.

Formed in 2011, this is the first year the Wedding Industry Awards has hosted regional awards events in order to announce the regional winners live on stage.  The East Midlands winners will now take part in the national finals, the winners of which will be announced live on stage on January 15, 2015, at a glamorous awards party in London.
