The very best of the country’s wedding suppliers were celebrating their successes on Wednesday night at The 2014 Wedding Industry Awards. One of the lucky companies walking away with The Best National Wedding DJ Award was Terry Lewis www.djterryjlewis.combased in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex.
Hosted by Sky News’ Sarah Hewson and held at The Bloomsbury Ballroom in London, the awards recognise the very best in service, creativity, innovation, professionalism and passion. From gowns, flowers, hair and make-up to venues, transport, entertainment and photography, every winner was cheered by the 450 strong audience
and everyone on the shortlist for each of the 24 categories had much to celebrate.
Terry Lewis, 2014 Award winner said “I am really proud to win the Best National Wedding DJ category but my proudest moment came when my 11 year old son said “Dad, if I bubble wrap the award can I take it into school to show my friends and teacher?” How could I say no?
Part of the judging process involved comments and feedback from past brides, here’s what one ecstatic couple had to say about Terry’s DJ performance
“WOW! I can’t even explain how amazing Terry Lewis was! He was not just our DJ but also the Master of Ceremonies and everyone loved him! All my guests were asking about Terry and some even for their own wedding. The music and the atmosphere were brilliant! Best DJ ever!”
1,250 companies entered the 2014 awards. 23,000 votes were cast by newlyweds which decided the Regional Shortlist. These select few then went through another round of critical judging by an expert panel who decided the Regional Winners, before a final process of judging to decide last night’s National Winners.
Damian Bailey, founder of The Wedding Industry Awards, was thrilled with the evening and with the response to the awards themselves.
“The Wedding Industry Awards really have become the gold standard for wedding excellence in this country. Everyone can enter and because of the unique way the votes are scored, big companies are on the same footing as individuals. For couples, seeing our logo on the website of a potential supplier is a real guide to quality and we know that the list of nominees and winners on our website is a big hit with brides and grooms. We’ve done all the hard work in selecting the very best and couples can just enjoy choosing top quality suppliers with no worries.”
“This was our third awards and the standard of entrants was higher than ever,” continued Damian. “It’s becoming harder and harder to pick winners from such amazing shortlists where everyone demonstrates such skill. It was great to celebrate everyone’s achievements and then party all night!”
