The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA)
The Awards evening was held at The Edgbaston Park Hotel in my home town of Birmingham. I was to photograph all the fun!
A night of Award winning, networking, food and drink with music by the fabulous 24 Live Acoustic...
A fantastic night was had by all the Regional Finalists!
A list of winners from the evening is now available here on the TWIA website
Every winner from this evening along with all Regional event winners from across the UK go on to be finalists for the National Awards evening in January 2024!
The Edgbaston Park Hotel
The contempoary Edgbaston Park Hotel looked fab lit up by the pink TWIA's Logo lighting. The staff looked after us, keeping us fed & watered from the welcome drinks reception until the end of the night.
Welcoming the finalists
Damian & Anna wecomed the West Midlands Regional Finalists. Guests could mingle, try the canape's, have a glass of bubbly even get papped by me on the red carpet or better yet, have a photograph 'for the gram' infront of the 'TWIA 24 logo wall' That is one popular wall!
Everyone wants the red carpet treatment....
Us wedding professionals really do work hard to make weddings perfect for you so a chance for a great big 'Well Done You' from other Industry experts & professionals is very welcome....

That's it from me....
I really enjoyed the two events I captured for the TWIA Team - it was great to work on an event which really does make a difference to the business's who enter. I wish all the Regional Finalists I met on both the East Midlands and West Midlands events all the luck for the Final in January 2024....
Hoping I might get a nomination from one of my clients for the next TWIA Awards! Fingers crossed xxx
