Heaton House Farm is lucky enough to have been entered into The UK Wedding Industry Awards 2016.
Established in 2015, it is the first ever awards where three leading brands have come together in order to recognise the best of the UK bridal industry. Hitched, Perfect Wedding and You & Your Wedding have joined forces to identify and reward the key companies- from individuals and independent companies to high street favourites and designer brands-The UK Wedding Awards includes everyone. Due to the unparalleled print, online and social media reach across the three companies, the awards were established in order to help many couples choose the very best that the industry offer.
Here’s some more information regarding how the system works. The in house panel of experts across the three brands review the entries and make a shortlist; the shortlist then goes live across all three websites for public voting. Across 5 separate categories, there are 23 sub categories in total, allowing various suppliers and venues to enter into the category which suits them best. For example there are eight subcategories to choose from in the venue category, which also makes it a lot easier for couples to choose a style of venue which best suits them and has a great reputation.
The 6 judges who make up the panel of experts have a wealth of knowledge between them. For example the head judge, Matthew Gerry who is Managing Director of Weddings at Immediate Media, has acted as a judge in a variety of specialist and media awards over the years. Due to their experience working in the industry on a daily basis, they really know what to look for when judging the entrants.
Going forward we would love to win the award for Best Country Venue, so fingers crossed in the New Year we’ll have another award under our belt! To find out more about the awards and vote for us, please see our entry in the following link:
