Industry leaders awarded at stunning awards ceremony
The British Asian Wedding Awards took central London by storm last weekend as hundreds turned out to acknowledge the incredible efforts of the industry’s top professionals.
Held at the stunning five-star Montcalm Hotel, the glamorous night awarded nominees in the North, Midlands and South, with some of the biggest names in business in attendance.
With the Asian Wedding industry booming, the awards have never been more fiercely contested, as entrants travelled from across the country to see if their name would be called out this year. Supported by family and friends, alongside fellow business associates, it was a night to remember for all who were shortlisted.
The event itself took a year to plan and was open to any company or individual across the nation. Businesses were invited to put themselves forward in relevant categories whilst others were nominated by one of their many happy clients.
After narrowing down the hundreds of nominations, a shortlist of lucky finalists was eventually drawn up for each region and category.
Three judges were then tasked with independently and confidentially marking each of the entries in accordance to a set criterion before winners were calculated for each award.
Split into geographical locations - North, South and The Midlands, there were 18 categories in total per region giving each business an opportunity to be the best in their county.
From caterers to jewellers and make-up artists to wedding planners, there was something for all service providers, all vying for the spectacular solid metal, gold-finish statuette on a black crystal base – befitting of the five star event.
As well as the awards ceremony, throughout the prestigious night, guests were able to enjoy delicious five-course banquet dinners, provided by Aagrah, whilst entertainment came in the form of close-up magic, a DJ and Bellydancers.
The British Asian Wedding Awards are designed to recognise the abundance of creative talent in an industry worth hundreds of millions of pounds.
With outstanding service and products provided to the public every year, the awards have become ever more relevant as the lavishness and grandeur of wedding days continues to grow.
