The British Columbia Wedding Awards 2019 honors the champions of the industry

After the enormous success of the British Columbia Hair and Beauty Awards 2018 that took place in December, Creative Oceanic is delighted to be launching the inaugural British Columbia Wedding Awards 2019 which will reward key professionals and businesses that have shown great commitment and talent within the wedding industry.

The elegant ceremony will take place on Wednesday, March 6th at The Executive Hotel Vancouver Airport where top wedding specialists and establishments that are eligible to be recognized for their impeccable work will gather together to celebrate their achievements.

The inaugural British Columbia Wedding Awards 2019 aim to reward those within the eclectic wedding industry that make your special day as perfect as possible, including the caterers that provide delicious reception meals, decorators that take care of the wedding venues,  DJs and bands that add the extra thrill to the atmosphere and get your guests on the dance floor, hair and makeup artists who make the brides look and feel on top of the world, honeymoon planners that work tirelessly to deliver an unforgettable honeymoon trip to the happy couple. These are the awards that will provide a platform to thank everyone who work hard to satisfy the needs of their customers.

The elegant event promises to be an enjoyable night with numerous prestigious accolades to be awarded to the most deserving professionals and businesses, including Wedding Venue of the Year, Caterer of the Year, Photographer of the Year, Specialist Wedding Supplier of the Year and many more.

A Spokesperson for the British Columbia Wedding Awards 2019 said: “These awards will seek to recognize everyone in this sector that have shown excellence, commitment and have the customer satisfaction as top priority in their business. Working in the wedding industry can be challenging at times and these finalists have managed to stand out among the rest, despite the difficulties.

“Moreover, The British Columbia Wedding Awards aim to recognize the growth, profitability and contributions of the wedding industry to the country’s economy. The event will showcase those who have expanded their business, creating more jobs and work within an environment where excellence is a standard.

“We would like to wish all the finalists the best of luck and we can’t wait to welcome our guests at the ceremony and celebrate the winners with them.”
