At our Customer Service Awards 2020, as well as our usual award categories, we had some extra special awards to give out. In an unprecedented year, the wedding industry has been dealt a significant blow by the Coronavirus. So, we want to celebrate those individuals and businesses who have persevered through countless difficulties in order to offer couples, their communities and other businesses the help and support they so desperately needed.
Every year we love to celebrate the best suppliers and venues in the wedding industry, all of whom provide amazing customer service to their couples. Our shortlist is made up of wedding businesses that go that extra mile for brides and grooms, and it’s always a tight-run race right up until voting closes.
Due to an unprecedented year, our Customer Service Awards 2020 are being announced a little later than we hoped! We’d like to thank our fantastic partners this year who have helped us put together this long-awaited awards ceremony which was streamed virtually on 15th April 2021 on our YouTube Channel. Without these partners and their exceptional support, this celebration would simply not have been possible!

So, we have discovered how this tradition came about, why it’s an excellent option for a modern woman and some advice on how to take the plunge!
