Win an incredible 7-night honeymoon in Mauritius

For your chance to win a trip to paradise, all you need to do is help us decide the nation's best wedding suppliers by voting in the UK Wedding Awards 2020

We wanted to find and reward the UK’s very best wedding suppliers. So, with our sister brand Hitched, we launched the UK Wedding Awards. Now we’re delighted to reveal the hotly anticipated shortlist for 2020. With so many outstanding entries, the judges had a hard time narrowing it down. But we know we’re bringing you the wedding suppliers who are the best in their field – the ones who go the extra mile to make sure a couple’s big day is everything they dreamed it would be.


Over to you. We’re asking you to choose the winners in each category – after all, who else has better taste than our amazing readers?

And as a thank you, when you vote for your favourites, you’ll be in with a chance to win a dream honeymoon in Mauritius.

Vote Now

Imagine spending your first days as newlyweds on a paradise island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. That’s what awaits the lucky winning couple, who will enjoy seven nights at serene adults-only Veranda Paul et Virginie Hotel & Spa in Mauritius. This fabulous prize is courtesy of Perfect Weddings Abroad, the UK’s leading weddings abroad and honeymoons specialist.

Boutique hotel Veranda Paul et Virginie is the epitome of romance. Set in the picturesque fishing village of Grand Gaube, the hotel is designed to encourage total escapism and create unforgettable memories.

Vote Now

Spend your time here enjoying a tandem ride around the island, swimming in the hotel’s two pools, or blissing out in the spa. Come evening you can dine under the stars or choose from the hotel’s two restaurants – one on the beach serving signature dishes and seafood, and the other serving local flavours. What an idyllic start to married life!

Read on to see the shortlist – you’ll need to head to the Awards site in order to vote for your favourites.
