This year has seen the emergence of the first ever Great Northern Wedding Awards 2015, brought to you by Little White Books. It’s been such an exciting last few months with the voting very, very tight resulting in nail-biting finishes in many of our categories.
In September 2014 we invited all our brides – or grooms – to nominate their favourite wedding businesses.
We asked them to tell us who has been happy to go the extra mile; who has demonstrated amazing customer service; and whose creativity has exceeded the most wildest of expectations.
Then in January 2015 we revealed our Top Ten Finalists which is when the voting process got underway. Thousands of brides past, present and future have all been furiously voting for their winning wedding businesses. And because it's brides - or grooms - casting those all-important votes, this is what made the Great Northern Wedding Awards so genuinely exciting!
At the beginning of May, our Final Fives were announced. We are proud to have had the very best in Northern businesses as our Final Five Finalists – such an unrivalled collection of professionals and all leaders in their areas of expertise.
