Thanks to its stunning waterside location, couples can say their “I do’s” against a beautiful backdrop and enjoy a wonderful champagne reception on a private outdoor terrace, as well as photos with amazing views. Salcombe Harbour is a truly special place for a wedding.”

You & Your Wedding editor Michelle Royle said “my award has to go to Turquoise. The sheer choice of destinations they offer couples is second-to-none, the customer service is excellent and the range of budget options is fantastic. Turquoise’s advisors take on board what you really want to experience and come up with exciting and different ideas. I experienced their service first-hand this year, and can’t recommend them highly enough!”

Winner: Justin Alexander 


Editor-at-Large at You & Your Wedding, Peta Hunt said “I’ve chosen Justin Alexander as my winner because of the huge range of dresses it offers – the brand really does have something stylish for all shapes and budgets. Justin Alexander is serious about the product and spends time and effort creating gorgeous images for each label it sells. I can’t wait to see what the new collection will bring! When looking for dresses to photograph, the team there make my job easy – I can always find a gown for every story.”
