Edgbaston Stadium has been crowned Midlands Wedding Venue of the Year by the prestigious British Asian Wedding Awards.
Staged at the Marriott London Grosvenor Square Hotel yesterday evening in-front of more than 400 guests, Edgbaston beat off competition from eight local venues to be crowned Midlands Wedding Venue of the Year by the judges.
Navneet Mangat, Special Events Sales Co-ordinator at Edgbaston Stadium, said: “Being named as the Midlands Wedding Venue of the Year is a great achievement and pays testament to the hard work from our staff.
“We’re very fortunate to have such great facilities at a unique venue – an international cricket stadium – but our staff constantly go the extra mile to provide the best possible wedding experience possible, whether it’s providing outstanding food, unique pitch side photography, congratulatory messages on the stadium scoreboard or supporting firework displays.”
Edgbaston transformed its wedding offering after completing a £32 million stadium redevelopment in 2011, which provided new conference and banqueting suites that also transformed the legendary cricket ground into one of the finest sports venues in the United Kingdom.
The venue has accommodated more than 30,000 guests for weddings in the last two years and can accommodate up to 650 guests in its flagship Banqueting Suite, through both catered and self-catered weddings.
The British Asian Wedding Awards win in the second accolade in the last 12 months for Edgbaston after it was named Best Venue in Birmingham Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards in June 2016. It was also shortlisted for Best Purpose Built Wedding Venue’ at the Midlands Asian Wedding Awards (MAWA).Back to articles
