Wedding Ideas is one of my favourite magazines. Based in Taunton, Devon, this inspirational magazine launched in 2003 and quickly became recognised an industry leader. It was also one of the magazines I personally referred to, when planning my own wedding back in 2010.
Now in their 9th year, The Wedding Ideas Awards 2014, promise to be even bigger and better! These national awards celebrate all that is fab about the Wedding Industry. With 16 categories for consideration, the team at Wedding Ideas, together with the Judging Panel – which this year includes: Blogging sensation Kat Williams from Rock n Roll Bride; Susi Rogal, Editor of Bridal Buyer Magazine and the lovely Alison Tinlin (Mrs P&P), Owner of Plans and Presents, will be focusing on awarding recognition to the very best in the industry. However, they need your help!
These are consumer lead industry awards and therefore require the public to vote. You can cast your vote for suppliers within all categories, or skip through to specific sections to quickly vote for your favourite wedding suppliers.
Pippa Ward, Brand Director at Wedding Ideas Magazine said: “The Wedding Ideas Awards 2014 are just around the corner and we are gearing up for the biggest and best celebration yet!
The Wedding Ideas Awards are the UK’s biggest national consumer wedding awards, giving companies of all sizes a chance to be nominated by our readers and recognised for their incredible products and outstanding customer service.

The awards ceremony is open to wedding industry professionals only and is a great opportunity for networking, letting your hair down and having fun! I was unable to attend last year, but I joined in the celebrations the year before and it was a fantastic night. In particular, I have fond memories at the after party of the Giraffe shaped vodka luge from Global Ice Sculptures, which caused lots of laughs (& probably a one or two of tipsy guests too!).
As per last year, the prestigious awards ceremony will take place at The Tower Hotel in London. Tickets are £70 + VAT and the event promises to be a glamourous black tie affair, with Guest Host Francine Lewis, star of Britain’s Got Talent, leading the way on the night. Tickets are now on sale so if you would like to attend or for more information on the ceremony click here.
However, if you are unable to attend in person don’t worry, you can follow the latest news and gossip on the Wedding Ideas Twitter feeds using #wimagawards.
I would just like to take this opportunity to wish all those suppliers who have been shortlisted lots of luck and I look forward to hearing about the Finalists in the coming weeks!
