A business helping couples celebrate their big day is enjoying its own success.

Tyne Events, set up by father and daughter Gary and Sophie Brown, won the Regional Venue Stylist Award at the Wedding Industry Awards.

And they will now join the other regional winners in the national finals in London next month.

The pair, who hire a showroom from the Park Hotel in Tynemouth, help decorate venues ranging from hotels to community centres.

Gary said: “Couples can visit our showroom to get advice and look at the options available to them.

“We have been operating for less than three years and the award shows that small businesses in the north east can flourish.”

Sophie left school in 2011 and believes the award shows young people can make a positive contribution to the development of small businesses.

Damian Bailey, founder of The Wedding Industry Awards, said: “The Wedding Industry Awards really have become the gold standard for wedding excellence in this country and, as our regional award ceremony proved, the wedding industry in the north east is packed full with passionate, innovative and committed suppliers.

“This our fourth awards and the standard of entrants was higher than ever.

“It’s becoming harder and harder for our judges to pick winners from such amazing shortlists where everyone demonstrates such skill. It was great to celebrate everyone’s achievements and then party all night.”
