2014 – The Wedding Industry Regional Awards

Explore our cream of the crop suppliers

We often claim to work with the ‘best of the best’ and the absolute crème de la crème of the East Midlands wedding suppliers. So, it’s fabulous when our claims are supported by our lovely clients winning prestigious awards.
Following the regional heat of the wedding industry awards which took place last week, we were over the moon to see so many wedding suppliers we work with both on the magazine and at our events holding their glitzy award!
So, just to shout about them a little more, here’s who won;
Best Wedding Cake Designer – Yummy Little Cakes
Natalie has been a supporter of Save the Date Magazine for many years now and her cakes are simply amazing, not to mention her second to none service. You’ve quite possibly seen Yummy Little Cakes stand at one of our events – always bursting with colour and adorned with fantastic cake creations. So well deserved, Natalie.



Best Wedding Caterer – Black Peppermint Food Co
Arriving onto the wedding scene a few years ago, Adam and the team at Black Peppermint have taken the market by storm. Creating delicious menus with a rustic edge, their service is simply brilliant. Whether it’s a 3 course sit down meal with locally reared meats and home grown produce or a casual tapas style sharing platter, Black Peppermint are at the top of their game and are going from strength to strength. You will find them at our events; always offering samples of their gorgeous food so don’t miss their stand!



Best Wedding Florist – Tineke Floral Designs
Set in a cute barn conversion in Derbyshire, Tineke Flowers have now won their fourth consecutive award. Obviously, their flowers are beautiful but the service a Tineke bride receives is like no other. Kerry cares so much and is over the moon to receive such recognition – and rightly so. We are huge fans of Tineke.



Best Wedding Make Up Artist – Rochelle O’Brien
If it’s a flawless look you’re after on your wedding day, look no further than Rochelle. She is passionate about what she does and it shows in her work. Look out for her in Save the Date Magazine.Rochelle-O'Brien-resized


Best Wedding Marquee Provider – Peaktipis
The team behind Peaktipis are quite possibly some of the nicest, most genuine people you will come across in the wedding industry. They care so much about their clients and ensure everything is completely perfect with their incredible tipis; come rain or shine. The quality of their tents is clear to see and we are so happy to see their hard work paying off. Congratulations guys!



Best Wedding Photographer – Ian Bursill
Ian has been with Save the Date Magazine for many years and is a continual award winner. His images are simply sublime; he captures emotions and portraits of people on their wedding day which most people wouldn’t even notice. His unobtrusive style and warm, friendly character is the reason he, quite deservedly, wins countless awards.



Best Wedding Stationery – Imagine Invites
A new comer to Save the Date Magazine, the ‘Imagine Invites’ team are hugely professional and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the wedding market. They have a fantastic client base and a loyal following due to the quality of their products and seamless service. We are looking forward to working with these award winners in 2015.



Best Venue Stylist – Mad Philomena
Liz at Mad Philomena is relatively new to the wedding scene but you would never know. She seems like she’s been styling weddings her whole life. With a real attention to detail and creative flair, we love working with Liz on photo shoots. One to watch!

Best Wedding Videographer – Perfect Moment Films
We work with Perfect Moment Films at many of our events and love their work. Cinematic, clean and romantic, their films are captured to perfection and are an ideal keepsake from your wedding day.

Highly Commended Bridal Retailer – Giling and White

Having worked with the lovely ladies at Giling and White for a few years now, we were proud as punch to hear that they’d received the ‘Highly Commended’ award for their beautiful bridal boutique. Very well deserved.



Highly Commended Event Team – Honeysuckle and Castle

The girls at Honeysuckle and Castle are such hard workers and deserve every piece of recognition which gets sent their way. We love working with the H&C team and really enjoy running the Pop Up Wedding Village in partnership with H&C which takes place at Calke Abbey in May.



Highly Commended Countryside Venue – The Peak Edge Hotel

Nestled on the edge of Derbyshire’s beautiful Peak District National Park in a peaceful and tranquil setting, we are very proud to work with such a stunning venue as Peak Edge Hotel.

Well done to all of the above winners and we have our fingers crossed for the national awards in January.
