    Later they were followed by R & R Productions who performed a special dance sequence. The group also later won the award for ‘Best Wedding Entertainment’.

    The MAWA’s recognised businesses and organisations from all areas of Asian wedding planning, including entertainment, catering, venue and fashion.

    Winners included the likes of Mahirs Experience who won ‘Best Asian Wedding Caterer’. The caterer arguably also won the award for the biggest cheer of the night.

    The stunningly picturesque Hagley Hall won ‘Best Alternative Wedding Venue’, while ‘Best Cake Designer’ went to Dipyum cakes which specialises in eggless cakes.

    Of course, Asian weddings are incomplete without a beautifully sculpted bride and groom.

    In the fashion and beauty categories, Sharon’s Couture won the award for ‘Best Brides Wear Collection’, while the Groom’s award was given to Ziggi Menswear.

    Renowned makeup artist Arman Milind took the trophy for ‘Best Hair and Makeup Artist’, while the ‘Best Wedding Accessories Provider’ went to Aariya Diamonds.
