TWIA 2018 winners unveiled!

Last night, at the glitzy Café de Paris, we joined the cream of the wedding industry crop to celebrate, recognise and award success at The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) 2018.

As proud sponsors of not one, but two awards at the event, Wedding Stationer of the Year and Event Team of the Year, we were excited to be there to support the industry, get together with some of our very own customers, forge new working relationships, reinforce existing ones and let our hair down for an evening of celebration!

A huge congratulations to all the Regional and National Winners, we’re looking forward to seeing you all again next year, but, without further ado, let’s take a look at who won!
