Winners of THE BRITISH WEDDING AWARDS 2018, in association with PREZOLA, are revealed at a glittering ceremony in London.
THE BRITISH WEDDING AWARDS 2018 in association with PREZOLA, were revealed this February during a thrilling and fun-filled awards ceremony and party held at One Whitehall Place at The Royal Horseguards Hotel. The evening was also supported by luxury travel specialists Elite Island Resorts and Serenity at Coconut Bay.
Champagne was served in the Reading & Writing Room at One Whitehall Place, overlooking the London Eye, while Earcandy Strings provided charming reception music. Guests were quick to have their photograph taken in the open photo booth provided by PROP. The backdrop for the photo booth was an incredible flower wall created by Afmena Events. The room was scented with the romantic fragrance of Crimson Rose & Oud candles by Taylor Benfield, while light-up letters provided by KMS Hire added to the atmosphere.
Richard Birtchnell – The London Toastmaster, called guests to dinner in The Gladstone Library where they enjoyed a three-course meal. The fabulous floral centrepieces on each table were also created by Afmena Events. Caroline Scott, Publisher of Wedding Ideas magazine, the official media partner of The British Wedding Awards, took to the stage to wish all the nominees luck before Richard kicked off proceedings. Ecstatic winners had their big moment captured by Samie Lee Photography, while Gulab Chaggar of CreativePlanets documented the entire evening on film.
The British Wedding Awards are a celebration of the UK’s favourite wedding brands and products, voted for and chosen by real brides. Nearly 150,000 votes were cast in this year’s awards.
After the awards presentation, guests retreated to The Reading & Writing Room to feast on a popular doughnut wall provided by Sweetie Factory and a breathtaking cake created by Blossom & Crumb, a company which came highly commended in the Best Wedding Cake Provider category.
