Wedding industry experts and attendees came together in November for the London Symposium “Building on the Boom”. The three days commenced with an Alpine Chalet Chic Party at Shangri-La The Shard, followed by the Bridelux conference at The Jumeirah Carlton Tower the next day. That evening, attendees and speakers enjoyed a superb souring 2020’s party at The Berkeley, before returning to The Jumeirah Carlton Tower for the final day of the conference, ahead of the gala dinner and awards night.

The culmination of the Symposium 2021 was the highly anticipated prestigious awards ceremony and, after eighteen months of uncertainty within the wedding industry, the evening saw everyone reunite for an incredible celebration at The Dorchester Hotel in London. The famous ballroom was transformed into an enchanted forest by Floward, with over 10,000 pink roses, crystal chandeliers, seamless lighting and production and beautiful tableware. It was an evening to celebrate with a renewed sense of hope for weddings and events after the turmoil caused by Covid 19 and to recognise the very best in the business. Many congratulations to the BrideLux winners, who were acknowledged for their dedication, professionalism and consistent hard work within the wedding world
