Devon vs. Cornwall in the Wedding Awards Challenge


This year the Westcountry Wedding Awards have been launched with Cornwall throwing down the gauntlet to Devon. The awards which are now open for entry are organised by national wedding consultants, “Wedding Matters”. Last year, out of the 16 category winners, 11 were from Cornwall. This year, Cornwall invites Devon to a friendly challenge as we see which county wins out for their wedding supplier excellence.

Entry is open to all suppliers of the wedding industry based in Devon or Cornwall. Those who enter will provide product/ service excellence and have clients willing to vote for them. The aim of the competition is to provide a benchmark within the South West wedding industry. The long term vision is to position the West Country and “the” wedding destination for the UK.

The awards, now in their second year, have already highlighted local businesses that are going beyond customer expectations. Entrants will be required to contact past clients who in turn vote for them. The awards will then be adjudicated by a panel of industry related professionals. The winners will be announced under 16 categories, during a glamorous evening ceremony.

Samm Riley, Managing Director of Wedding Matters, commented, “This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses within Devon and Cornwall who supply the wedding industry to gain recognition for the service/product they offer. These awards also provide an excellent ongoing marketing tool for businesses who want to stand out from the crowd through service excellence.”

The entries for the awards close in March, Samm commented, “Whilst entries close in March the sooner businesses register the longer their clients have to vote.”
