Cornish Brides Awards Announce
Cornwall’s Wedding Venue of the Year
At a spectacular awards ceremony in Truro, winners of the second prestigious Cornish Brides Awards were announced in front of more than 100 VIP guests from Cornwall’s leading bridal businesses who enjoyed a sumptuous menu of canapés and refreshments while enjoying music from Cornwall’s talented musician Joss White.
Organised and hosted by Cornish Brides Magazine, Cornwall’s longest established bridal publication; the Cornish Brides Awards are specifically designed to recognise and reward talent, quality and dedication from businesses and individuals who have proven to make an exceptional contribution to the Cornish bridal industry.
Redruth’s Penventon Park Hotel beat off stiff competition from 5 fellow finalists to win the highly coveted Wedding Venue of the Year Award. Aaron Pascoe of Penventon Park Hotel was ecstatic with their success: “This is such an unbelievable moment for us, to win the Wedding Venue of the Year award is a true privilege. We are extremely honoured and would like to thank all of the brides and customers who voted for us. We’d also like to thank Janice and Colin Robinson and their team at Cornish Brides for providing a fantastic platform for Cornish business involved within the wedding industry to show off our skills and for putting on a fabulous awards ceremony!”
Over 200 businesses from across Cornwall and West Devon initially entered the Cornish Brides Awards before 48 entrants were selected as finalists across 13 varied categories such as Designer of the Year, Venue of the Year and Photographer of the Year. During the judging process the judges took into consideration comments and feedback from brides and customers, the number of votes amassed during the open voting periods, websites and social media platforms and feedback obtained from mystery client visits and calls.
Cornish Brides Editor-in-Chief Janice Robinson said: “The number and stature of entrants to this years awards was exceptional and we received in excess of 5000 votes cast. Tonight was all about recognising those businesses and individuals whose commitment and dedication has helped not only their own businesses prosper but helped to raise standards across the Cornish bridal industry as a whole. Penventon Park Hotel are extremely worthy winners as they were consistently praised for their professionalism, customer care excellence and immaculate attention to detail.”
