Weddings are meant to live memorable memories for the Bride and Groom as they celebrate their love with families and friends but experts who often put the show together are often forgotten.
The maiden Africa Wedding Makers Awards (AWEMA) scheme seeks to recognise experts on anything from cakes, cocktails, flowers to fashion who make weddings look beautiful.
The maiden edition of the awards themed: “Rewarding Excellence in the Wedding Industry” will be staged on 15 May, 2021 with some bridal and groom display on show.
Speaking ahead of the awards ceremony, Madam Irene Nartey, organizer for the event said, the scheme seeks to create a platform for networking among wedding makers especially in this era of the pandemic where weddings are taking a new format.
“The aim of the awards is to recognize and reward those within the wedding industry who leave an indelible mark at various wedding ceremonies.
“The awards scheme allows industry experts to come together and
share new ideas as well as bring them closer. The pandemic has caused a little evolution with regards to how weddings are organized, making wedding makers to be more creative in delivering a successful event,’’ she said.
Voted for by the public, wedding makers including DJ’s, caterers, hair and makeup artists would be conferred honours recognizing their contributions of making various weddings a success.
