The County Brides North West Wedding Awards

On Wednesday 18th June 2014, County Brides hosted the 4th annual Northwest Wedding Awards at the beautiful Heaton House Farm, 246 guests attended this very glamorous black tie event. We raised over £2600 on the night for the Northwest Air Ambulance Charity.

Brides, bridegrooms and customers from across the region voted for the best suppliers in the wedding industry. Over 7000 votes were counted, 400 companies were nominated and 25 well deserved winners picked up their awards on the night.

Managing Director Duane Thornborough gave a very inspirational speech “There is a positive outlook to the future within the wedding industry with more couples getting hitched in 2014 than last year and data shows a growth in the market for 2015”.

The theme for the evening Keep it British, buy local and wave your company flag which was brilliantly set up by iCatching events, it was fantastic to see so many companies in one room waving their flags and singing Land of Hope and Glory at the top of their voices, enjoying the meal from Vanilla in AllSeasons, dancing to the Live Piano Experience and DJ Robin Kershaw. It was just amazing!

“We must thank all the companies who helped put the night together, donated their time, prizes and sponsoring the Northwest Wedding Awards, which has grown by 38% over the last 4 years”

County Brides publish an annual wedding magazine which is distributed to over 200 wedding fayres and shows across the region as well as organising their own wedding fayres, produce an annual wedding television programme, host the awards and are now just about to publish another magazine called Don’t Forget the Groom.
