Well, ladies (and lads), it’s finally here. After more than 150 Real Weddings, 72 monthly nominations and tens of thousands of votes I am super excited to announce the final round of voting to decide whose was Easy Weddings’ inaugural Wedding of the Year. Happy days!
What a tough choice it is. The 12 gorgeous couples represent a diverse range of weddings of every size, budget and style. From modern city nuptials to rustic country affairs, black tie formalities versus relaxed, laid back soirees and destination weddings at home and abroad. Each celebration is a true reflection of the couples and how they chose to show their love and commitment.
As the editor of our Real Weddings blog, I’ve loved getting to know each bride and groom as they reminisced about what was, as the cliché goes, the best day of their lives. I’ll say it again – best job ever!
Here’s a snapshot of the 12 nominated couples, one of which will be jetting off to fabulous Hawaii on a second honeymoon of a lifetime, courtesy of our wonderful prize sponsors, My Holiday Centre.
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
With love, Rebecca – Real Weddings Editor.
