Recognising and rewarding the fabulous wedding venues and suppliers in the North of Scotland!
How it Works
Voting is now open for one bride OR groom per wedding to thank the THREE top suppliers they used on their big day and who provided outstanding service. Those who were married in the North of Scotland on or after the 1st October 2017 are now eligible to vote. For the purposes of these awards the North of Scotland will be from Dundee in the East to Fort William in the west including these two locations, and all points North. Although venues must be within the North it is acceptable for suppliers from outside the area to receive votes.
Brides or grooms have a maximum of THREE votes they can cast for the suppliers they used on their wedding day and who they found to be (a) easy to work with (b) were professional in everything they did and (c) provided top quality service in the build up to the wedding and on the day itself.
The bride or groom can allocate one vote per supplier for their Gold, Silver & Bronze awards. The gold vote being their favourite supplier, silver second and so on. If the bride or groom votes for all three they will receive three entries into a FREE prize draw which gives them the chance to win a short sunshine break. Following the closing date all votes will be verified to ensure they are authentic before the finalists are announced. The organizers reserve the right to disqualify any venue or supplier from the contest if it is found that any votes are not legitimate.
The Top Tier Awards will be judged and awarded mainly on votes cast. Once all votes are checked and verified the scores can be improved by the number of Gold, Silver or Bronze votes each supplier received. There will be no ‘judging panel’ to decide a winner unless there is a tie between two or more nominees. The organizers reserve the right to delete any votes which cannot be verified.
When nominations are announced the sale of tables/places will be open to nominees only for seven days. Following this any remaining places will be open to other wedding industry professionals and the public. All nominees will receive a certificate at the event in recognition of their achievement and trophies will be awarded to the lucky winners.
Promotional online and printed material is now avaiable on request.
