In the latest installment of our meet the Wedding Ideas Awards 2013 sponsors series, we talk to Darren Noel from Hitched.co.uk about wedding trends, the company and what the Wedding Ideas Awards mean to them
Hitched.co.uk launched in 1997 and besides having become the UK’s number one wedding website, has also developed in Australia, Ireland, South Africa and Canada; spreading wedding planning across the globe.
Tell us about the company…
Hitched.co.uk’s fun, exciting and dedicated team is based in Surrey and we thrive on both angles of this industry. Watching new suppliers join the market and existing suppliers develop as brides and grooms plan their weddings year on year is always incredible to watch.
What are the trends for 2013?
For 2013 hitched.co.uk predicts an increase in outdoor weddings and festival-themed events. We’ll also see a greater number of shorter wedding dresses feature in our popular real wedding section.
What do the Wedding Ideas Awards mean to you?
Putting the current economic climate to the side, couples across the UK are still happy to spend money on the most important day of their lives, which means that the sponsors, nominees, winners and everyone else involved in the Wedding Ideas Awards 2013 have maintained an admirable service all round!
