The Finalists Are In And The Wedding Gloves Are Off!

Thousands of submissions were entered into the bridal industry’s most prestigious awards – an annual programme that promotes new talents and acknowledges excellence in both supplier and retailer sectors. This year more than 25 individuals were involved in the complex judging process which, for the first time, was online. Congratulations to the finalists who can now carry the exclusive badging, but unfortumately will have to wait until 14 September to find out who the final winners are!
