At a glitzy ceremony in London on Wednesday the 17th of January I was announced as the Wedding DJ of the Year 2018 as part of the national Wedding Industry Awards. Beating off stiff competition from the other regional winners in his category, My win was announced in front of a large crowd of wedding industry professionals and its one of the prodest moments of my life.
It’s such an honour and real career high to be awarded National Wedding DJ of the year for 2018. The wedding industry awards recognise and reward excellence within the wedding industry and that never sounded so good. The unique way that people vote and the awards are judged really make these awards a kite mark for the industry. My business and bespoke service will continue to grow thanks to the awards, and I can’t thank my couples enough. Each couple will have spent a fair amount of time going through the voting process and for that I’m truly thankful. These awards are a credit to this amazing industry.
Recognising excellence across all types of wedding suppliers, the Wedding Industry Awards use a combination of client voting and industry judging to select the winners. The competition begins with nominations from suppliers, followed by a period of voting where their clients from the past year are encouraged to not only rate their performance but submit written testimonials. Each entrant’s application – along with their clients’ votes and testimonials – are then reviewed by a judging panel who select a winner for each area of the country ahead of the regional award presentations. A further stage of judging then takes place, with the panel revisiting the applications and testimonials of the regional winners, to establish an overall national winner.
