We crowned the winners of the British Wedding Awards 2020 on Monday 12th October in our first ever online virtual event!

The British Wedding Awards is a celebration of the UK’s favourite wedding companies, voted for and chosen by real brides. Kindly supported by Purely Diamonds, Blue Bay Travel and Original Cottages.

Revealing the very best the wedding industry has to offer, the categories focus on all key aspects of wedding planning, from the dress and accessories, to the venue and wedding stationery – we’ve got it covered.

The big day was highly anticipated this year as the global pandemic delayed the original awards date from March to October. The evening was scheduled to bring together the crème de la crème of the wedding industry for a formal dinner dance at The Hurlingham Club. However, The British Wedding Awards team were delighted to host their first ever virtual awards ceremony instead, which was broadcast globally on The Chelsea Magazine Company‘s YouTube channel.

You can rewatch the ceremony above or via this link.
