The WOL Awards 22 Finalists Have Been Announced!

The WOL Awards 22 finalists have been announced! After two weeks and thousands of votes, the finalists for the most prestigious wedding awards in the country have been announced. This is a huge achievement for any wedding industry professional to make it this far! To be called a finalist is an incredible honour.

Wondering what happens next? Our finalists will be asked to complete an online submission containing samples of their work and reviews, based on real wedding experience. This will be judged by our expert panel of independent judges, who will then determine a winner!

On Monday 28th March, our winners will be announced! This is always done online on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and if government guidelines allow, at our awards gala too.
