Editor’s Choice Award

Winner: Clearwell Castle 

Clearwell Castle

“There are many reasons why this Grade II listed mansion is my winner but one of the biggest has to be the stunning ballroom – with its 75ft aisle and leaded windows, it’s the most beautiful location for a civil ceremony with a difference. It really is rare to find a wedding venue with such a spectacular setting to say ‘I do’”

Winner: Ellis Bridal

Ellis Bridal

“With more than 100 years in the business, Ellis Bridals certainly knows how to create an unforgettable wedding-day look, offering gorgeous gowns at an amazing price point. Brides love Ellis for the stunning array of designs, from simple silhouettes right up through seriousstyle statements, and I love that this UK-designed legacy brand keeps its finger firmly on the fashion pulse while never straying from its core mission: to help brides look and feel their most beautiful.”

Winner: Sandals


“It’s been very difficult to choose an Editor’s choice from all the fantastic companies I deal with, but finally I chose all-inclusive romantic-getaway specialist Sandals. Their customer service is second to none and the choice of Caribbean resorts is incredible. Perfect for those honeymooners.”
