Last year our brides nominated us for the first time into The Wedding Industry Awards. We were absolutely honoured to be awarded as the South West’s Best Wedding Marquee Provider 2015.
Last Tuesday, the day before the 2016 award ceremony, we nervously sat in the office contemplating whether we would be presented with a title. The wedding coordinators had gone to all extremes to create exciting and unique designs, the team had worked even harder to install complex wedding structures, the girls and guys were always at the end of the phone or at meetings with clients, and each and every wedding was seen from start to finish with smiles and enthusiasm. We had received countless ‘thank you’ letters and praise but we knew that the competition was incredibly high with many fantastic UK business that had also been nominated.
The awards took place at the beautiful Maunsel House, a stunning wedding venue, which was attended by all of the South West competition entrants – an exciting mix from wedding planners, florists, makeup artists, to marquee providers! After cocktails and canapes, we all took our seats to await the results…
‘SOUTH WEST WEDDING MARQUEE PROVIDER OF THE YEAR GOES TO…ABBAS MARQUEES’
We are absolutely delighted to say the least. What a way to finish the incredibly hectic 2015 and kick start the festive season! We want to thank all of our couples who voted for Abbas Marquees, it means the world to us!
We will be representing the South West in the National Finals in January 2016 along with the regional winners from the other categories. We’d like to wish everyone involved the very best of luck.
