We’re so excited to introduce to you the Hitched Wedding Awards!
Decided entirely by Hitched couples, the Hitched Wedding Awards recognises and rewards wedding businesses that have gone above and beyond to provide outstanding customer service during 2021.
The winners of the Hitched Wedding Awards will be decided by thousands of Hitched wedding planning couples. From talented wedding photographers and creative florists to stunning venues and brilliant DJs, the Wedding Awards is open to all Hitched vendors.
How Do the Wedding Awards Work?
The Hitched Wedding Awards will be based entirely on reviews left on your Hitched listing by your couples in 2021. To be eligible for the Hitched Wedding Awards 2022, vendors must have a minimum of three reviews left on their Hitched listing between 1st January 2021 and 31st December 2021.
Only those wedding businesses with the most reviews and best rated by couples will be crowned a winner in the Hitched Weddings Awards! Which is why now more than ever it is so important to encourage your couples to review your wedding business.
Start inviting your previous and present couples to review your wedding business now! Your clients can review your wedding businesses based on the customer service and experience they have received. You can still reach out to clients who have had a previous wedding date, or those with a future one, what's important is the year the review was left, not the wedding date.
Receiving reviews about your wedding business is becoming even more important as this is one of the first things potential couples will look at when searching for their dream wedding suppliers. We’ve got some handy tools to help you request reviews such as the Personalised Review URL and Review Widget Collect which can be accessed in your Admin area.
Why Should You Enter the Wedding Awards?
The Hitched Wedding Awards acknowledges the top wedding businesses across the country and represents those who have delivered the highest quality service, are trusted and dependable. All winners will be included on the Wedding Awards landing page, highlighting your wedding business to thousands of wedding planning couples.

All Hitched vendors. To qualify for Hitched Wedding Awards, wedding professionals must have a minimum of 3 reviews on Hitched between 1st January 2021 - 31st December 2021 to be considered for the 2022 award. Collecting three reviews ensures you are eligible but does not guarantee you will win an award, as a number of other factors are considered such as quality and quantity.
I’ve had 3 reviews during 2021, does this mean I’m a winner?
