Celebrating the best of wedding talent in the East of England, the crème de la crème of independent wedding businesses assembled at new wedding venue, The Great Barn at Manor Mews, Fakenham, Kings Lynn, for a night of unabated glamour at the East of England regional finals of the Wedding Industry Awards.

With a dress code of ‘Dress To Kill’ the finest wedding suppliers in the East filled the cold night air with sequins, sparkles and a heady mixture of nerves and excitement. A champagne reception from Champagne Lanson and delicious canapés from the team at Manor Mews welcomed guests to the glittering venue, which held its first wedding in September, 2014.

 

The calibre of entrants in the East of England region gave the judges some tough decisions, explained TWIA founder Damian Bailey. Voted for by brides and grooms from the past 12 months, in areas including customer service, the regional winners were selected by a panel of expert judges who represent the leading lights of the wedding industry. Examining each regionally-shortlisted business, the judges looked at everything from branding to timekeeping, while also taking into account the comments of voters.

 

Winners of 23 categories including wedding caterers, transport suppliers and florists all headed to the stage to receive custom trophies and badges of honour. Meanwhile, the judges also gave out seven highly commended awards as testament to the hotbed of talent in the region.

 

The East of England regional winners will now take part in the national finals, the winners of which will be announced live on stage on January 15 2015 at an awards party in London. In the meantime, brides and grooms now have an invaluable list of resources to refer to when planning their weddings in the East of England, knowing that regional finalists offer an exemplary service and that they could potentially have a cast of award-winning wedding businesses working on their big day.
