Last year’s awards were special, but this year’s edition holds even more value. In the words of José Melo, Vice President of Sales for Europe at Hitched.co.uk, “After two very difficult years of the pandemic for the sector, where professionals had to halt their activity and suffered great losses, this year we can finally talk about an edition where weddings were celebrated big.
“The professionals have worked long hours, without weekends off and have extended the season during practically all of 2022. Therefore, above and beyond individual recognition, the celebration of the Wedding Awards 2023 seeks to serve as a tribute to all those professionals and businesses that gave everything to make the recovery of the industry a reality.”
In addition to the annual objective of recognising the excellent service offered by wedding professionals in the United Kingdom, we have also added the objective of highlighting the incredible work of the professionals during and after the pandemic.
