A new region for TWIA 2018 (as we split what was the 'London & South East' into two new regions), the South East Regional Awards event is a unique opportunity to toast the very best of the wedding industry in this part of the country. It’s intended to be a fun ending to a long wedding season that allows us all to acknowledge the hard work that wedding suppliers in the South East region have poured into their clients’ dream days. If you’re shortlisted for an award, you will obviously want to be there, but this event is open to anyone involved in the wedding industry. (Regional shortlists will be announced online on October 30th.)
The evening will be a fantastic opportunity to rub shoulders with others at the top of their game, forge new relationships and reinforce existing ones. Enjoy debriefing about your weddings this summer, catching up with suppliers you’ve enjoyed working with or just raise a cheeky glass to the best industry there is to work in.
In the glorious surroundings of Blackstock Country Estate, you will have plenty of time to chat to your peers and make new connections whilst enjoying drinks and canapes. Mighty Fine Entertainment will be bringing all their musical expertise and a cash bar will also be available because this is, after all, a celebration!
It will then be down to the business of the event; the awards presentation itself. The South East regional winners of each of The Wedding Industry Awards categories will be announced live on stage by TWIA founder Damian Bailey, following which there will be official photos and interviews with the winners and further time to network.
Please note that this is not a formal dining event and guests will not be seated around tables for dinner. Instead, the emphasis is on friendly networking and the ability to roam around the room to enjoy the evening as much as possible with your friends and colleagues in the industry. From past experience, we know how you like to party and we want to give you the best possible opportunity to do that as we celebrate the excellence within your region.
Ticket price £37 + vat
Tickets available from this page once the regional shortlists have been announced on October 30th.
Until then, put this event in your diary. If you become a South East Regional Finalist you'll want to be there!

Winning a National title has been fantastic for business and has really raised our profile. Our brides and grooms really respect the awards and a lot of them have found us on TWIA website.
The TWIA web site and Directory are brilliant. They really helped us decide who to book for our wedding.
I love the whole experience of TWIA. It generates business, I love the events and it’s great to meet others in the industry. I’ll definitely enter each year!
It’s a no-brainer for me.
I’ve found all my wedding suppliers through TWIA. It’s so great that it’s voted for by past customers. We get an honest and true opinion.
