Finalists at The 6th Official English Wedding Awards 2023 – Chapter 2 have been announced

Creative Oceanic are delighted to reveal the finalists at The 6th English Wedding Awards 2023.

Elite wedding specialists and businesses across The North of England and Yorkshire have been shortlisted as the 2023 finalists, a list of top names that create magical moments that turn into lasting memories.

The black-tie ceremony will take place in early 2023, where top specialists and establishments that have gone above and beyond in the sector will gather to celebrate their achievements.

The English Wedding Awards 2023 aim to recognise and reward those within the wedding industry that work towards making the big day as perfect as possible, including the caterers that provide delicious reception meals, decorators that take care of the wedding venues and add the glam in the room or florists that know how to make any wedding flourish.

The glamorous event promises to be an unforgettable evening with numerous prestigious accolades ready to be awarded to the most deserving professionals that have gone the extra mile in the business and have seen amazing growth as a result.

A Spokesperson for The English Wedding Awards 2023 said: “These Awards are now recognised as the leading celebration for showcasing those that have demonstrated excellence in the wedding industry.

“This year marks the 6th anniversary of The English Wedding Awards and we are delighted to be celebrating not only the finalists but how far the industry has came in the past decade.

 “The competition is tough this year but it is time to acknowledge everyone who has shown dedication and professionalism in their workplace; two key features that make individuals and businesses stand out from the rest.

“With more entries than ever before, we would like to wish the finalists the best of luck and we can’t wait to welcome our guests at the ceremony and celebrate the winners with them.”
