Local wedding businesses make it to the finals in The 3rd Welsh Wedding Awards 2020

After the enormous success of The Welsh Wedding Awards over the past two years, Creative Oceanic is delighted to announce the finalists of The 3rd Welsh Wedding Awards 2020.

The event 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, February 19th at The Exchange Hotel in Cardiff where top wedding specialists and establishments that are eligible to be recognised for their impeccable work will gather together to celebrate their achievements.

The 3rd Welsh Wedding Awards 2020 aim to reward those within the eclectic wedding industry that make the special day as perfect as possible, including the caterers that provide delicious reception meals, decorators make the wedding venues flourish or hair and makeup artists who make the brides look and feel on top of the world.

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 Welsh Wedding Awards 2020 said: “These awards seek to recognise 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 amongst the rest, despite the difficulties.

“Moreover, The Welsh Wedding Awards aim to recognise the growth, profitability and contributions of the wedding industry to the country’s economy. The event will showcase those who have expanded their business, created 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.”
