Bridal Buyer Awards 2011

The Limelight team celebrated in style at the prestigious awards ceremony in Harrogate with Helen Bradley, (White Ash Creative) our wonderful website designer and Limelight suppliers Linzi Jay, JLM bridesmaids and John Charles Occasionwear – all three of whom also won awards. Thank you to the organisers and judges and to all our customers and suppliers who have encouraged and supported us. You have made all the hard work worthwhile!

The annual Bridal Buyer Awards, now in their 10th year, are widely acknowledged as the most important and influential awards programme in the bridal industry. Recognising excellence in retail, design, manufacturing, innovation and export, the awards attract many thousands of entries who are judged, initially, on their ability to meet a rigid set of criteria.

The judging process itself is lengthy and complex, with three independent panels investing time and experience in assessing the category finalists. Retailer awards are judged by a team of industry suppliers with an overview from trade associations and the media; supplier award winners are picked by a panel of top-notch retailers, again with input from the relevant trade associations. The glittering ceremony on 14 March, at a black tie dinner at the Harrogate Exhibition Centre, saw the coming together of the stalwarts of the bridalwear industry. Some 600 guests from across the UK, Continental Europe and the US joined forces to celebrate the best in the industry.
