The North of England Wedding Awards


The most prestigious awards for client service excellence.

The Awards recognise businesses in the wedding industry which go the extra mile for their customers, providing outstanding service and inspiring their customers to want to actively and positively promote them.

Each year, hundreds of companies enter into the awards. Votes are submitted in their thousands. From these votes finalists are created, and the winners are normally announced at York Racecourse, where we enjoy a delicious three course meal and celebrations carry on until the early hours. We are especially looking forward to this years celebrations, and putting the pandemic behind us.

• If only one business enters in any particular category, that category will be merged with that of another region. Should there be no entrants in other regions, than that category will be closed and the entrant moved in to wedding services.

• Should two or more of the same business type enter the wedding services category, a category for that type of supplier will be created.

The scores from the voting process are added together and divided by the number of votes, giving each business a final figure.
Those with the highest figures become finalists, and their votes are passed on to the judges.
