British Wedding Awards 2017
Best Wedding Photo Booth Hire in Britain! 
Posted on 10th March 2017
Officially the best Wedding Photo Booth hire service in England - voted by actual brides!

With 173 shortlisted brands and 50,000 votes, sponsored by newly re-branded, Wedding Ideas magazine, The British Wedding Awards have become the industry’s most exciting and relevant awards.

Each year the awards are hosted in London and celebrate the best of the wedding industry. What makes The British Wedding Awards unique is that is solely voted for by actual brides and customers of the businesses nominated, rather than a panel of judges who are removed from the process and never actually experience the businesses for themselves.

The glamorous awards ceremony also offer a great excuse for our team to take a night off and be on the 'other side' of things. 

As the awards were taking place on a Tuesday this week, it was difficult for many of our team to arrange childcare and time out of the office to attend.

Luckily, our 'brave' volunteers from our London, Kent, Essex & Hertfordshire branches - Ian, Laura, Peter & Jill were able to get dressed up and attend on behalf of the entire Giggle Booth family.


The awards were yet again a lavish event, taking place this year at The Hurlingham Club in London where an array of entertainment, food and awards were waiting for our Gigglers.

Our category this year was once again very strong, with some of our favourite suppliers having made it through as finalists including Shoot It Yourself and Shropshire Petals.

This year there wasn't long to wait to find out if we'd won, and just after 8pm the wait was over as we made our way up on stage to collect the award.

We are so proud to be crowned the Best of British in such an important category, the Best Finishing Touches. 

The award is a great achievement for us and allows us to really celebrate the hard work our teams across the country put in. 

People think that we do is easy, but most don't see the hours of work our teams put in before an event, the effort that goes into offering the level of service we do during our events and even afterwards. 

We take pride in what we do, and the responsibility of our involvement in your special day seriously. Its why we work so hard. Its why we pay attention to the 'details', and we believe the reason for the 2nd time we've been lucky enough to be crowned winners of this award.

We are grateful to our friends, family, fans, customers, and colleagues across the country who've made this possible. 

The award has taken pride of place on display in our Head Office, accompanied by the 2015 award.

Having won this award, you won't see us taking a back seat - oh no - the hard work continues and with over 2,500 weddings booked in for this year we are committed to delivering an experience that wows each and every person who chooses to have a Giggle with us! 

If you've got a wedding coming up and fancy having a Giggle with us too - then get in touch with our central reservations team or your local Giggle Booth office to find out more.

We'd also like to congratulate the other winners, especially Shropshire Petals who were Highly Commended in our category, and winners last year.

We were also really pleased to see Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire picking up an award, as a venue we've visited many times for some of our lovely couples.
