National Award Winners TWIA

Delighted to announce that we won the  National award for Best Designer / Dressmaker in The Wedding Industry Awards 2015 on Thursday 15th JanuaryBeing presented with our award   by Isabel Webster from Sky News and Damian Bailey TWIA Founder

Thursday 15th January saw the best of the wedding world descend on the Café de Paris London to see the national winners of The Wedding Industry Awards 2015 announced at a glamorous ceremony. One of the lucky winners was Forget me Not Designs of Ryde Isle of Wight  who picked up the title of Best Designer/ Dressmaker


Following on from November’s regional finals, the event saw all of the winners from around England come together to see who would walk away with the coveted titles. 27 awards were up for grabs, rewarding everyone from designers and retailers to stylists, florists, planners and entertainers.


” This award is really special because it is voted for by last seasons  customers, the  brides of 2014. It is a real tribute to the service we offer them and the attention to detail that we put in to their special day  that they have voted  for us to win this award”


When founder of The Wedding Industry Awards, Damian Bailey took to the stage along with co-host Isabel Webster from Sky News’ Sunrise, the audience was on tenterhooks waiting to see who would be recognised as being the best in the wedding industry.


“Every year, the competition for the top titles gets hotter and hotter and every year, the celebrations get better and better,” says Damian Bailey. “This year, our judges all commented on the skill, the dedication and the commitment of all our national finalists and choosing the winners was harder than ever.”


With the UK wedding industry being worth an estimated £10billion annually and hundreds of suppliers in competition with each other, to be crowned national champion in no mean feat. Companies had to not only catch the judge’s eyes but also receive first-class feedback from their recent clients.


“If The Wedding Industry Awards is about anything, it’s about celebrating the amazing talent that fills the wedding industry,” says Damian Bailey. “Everyone who was with us at Café de Paris London deserves to be recognised and I have no doubt that the 2016 awards, which launch in May, will be even better.”
