welcome to the bride wedding awards

The EDP Bride The Wedding Awards 2018 will open for entries early October.

More than 4,500 couples get married in Norfolk each year. That’s a lot of love, a lot of planning, and a lot of hard work by the hundreds of wedding industry professionals striving to deliver a quality service, whether that’s helping you find the perfect dress, capturing the day on camera, providing top-notch entertainment, or getting you to the ceremony on time…

So, to celebrate the excellence of these industry professionals, Archant Bride is proud to announce the launch of Bride: The Wedding Awards, in association with the EDP and sponsored by Marry in Norfolk and the Norfolk
Registration Service.

The awards will recognise the best in the business at a glamorous red-carpet event at Dunston Hall Hotel, which is one of the region’s most prestigious wedding venues, on Friday January 27, 2017. Entries opens on August 1, 2016 and close on September 30, judging by a panel of experts will take place in October and the finalists for each category announced in November, before the winners are honoured at the awards ceremony in January.

Businesses can nominate themselves, or be nominated by brides.

Diana Sims, general manager of Archant Weddings East said: “We’re very excited about the launch of Bride: The Wedding Awards. We’re passionate about helping brides plan their day through our magazines and shows and this is the chance to reward those local suppliers who play such a big part of their day and help their businesses grow.”

Caroline Clarke from Marry in Norfolk, Norfolk County Council, headline sponsor of the inaugural awards, said: “Just as every wedding is unique, so too are the teams, large and small, who work so hard to make each couple’s dream come true.

“We at Marry in Norfolk are thrilled that the professionalism, innovation and excellence of Norfolk businesses will be recognised and what better way to celebrate than with a special ceremony.”
