Editor’s Choice Award

Michelle Royle, group editor, You & Your Wedding: TUI

“For couples who want to plan a wedding abroad, TUI is a great choice, as they offer weddings in 70 venues in 16 different countries! From Iceland to Mexico, Ibiza to Jamaica, the destination list is amazing – and the prices are incredible. With planners at every resort, TUI can help you arrange every last little detail. I’ve chosen TUI because they really do cater for every type of ceremony – from same-sex blessings to tiny elopements, or huge, luxurious days to barefoot beach vows.”

Peta Hunt, editor at large, You & Your Wedding: Justin Alexander

“As a long-established family bridal company, with four other sister brands, Justin Alexander knows about creating flattering shapes and styles. I loved their new collection from the moment I saw the show in New York this year – created for modern brides, the dresses are bang-on trend but still very wearable. They have used fabrics with soft textures, beading and floral embroideries with plenty of strong silhouettes and interesting necklines. From my point of view, these dresses are a dream to shoot and a joy to wear, so what’s not to love?”

Sarah Allard, editor, Hitched.co.uk: Le Petit Château

“Le Petit Château is quickly becoming one of our most popular venues on Hitched.co.uk – and for good reason! Not only do they have stunning options for ceremonies – from the enchanting Belle Époque chapel to the romantic Mediterranean Terrace – but they really do go above and beyond for their couples thanks to their dedicated team of professionals and 11 flexible pricing levels, which is why they’re my Editor’s Choice.  Whether you’re looking for a traditional wedding or something a bit different, Le Petit Château combines luxury with its unique French-chic style for a day to remember.”
