ILFRACOMBE-based World Inspired Tents has won the Wedding Industry Award for Best Wedding Marquee Provider in the country.

This is the second time the team has won the title in three years.

"We were over the moon to have made it through to the finals, but to be up against such strong competition and to win the national title for the second time is such a boost for the whole team," said managing director Ed Wright.

"The number of votes and comments received from our customers has been overwhelming. We are fortunate to have a fantastic team of staff on board, and this latest award is testament to the great work they all do."

The team celebrated among some of the industry's greatest talents, including the team from Ocean Kave, Bideford, who were shortlisted in the best newcomer category. World Inspired Tents progressed to the national final after winning the South West title in November.

The Wedding Industry Awards were established by Damien and Anna Bailey to provide the industry with a credible and independent regional and national awards process and event.

The awards are voted for by customers and are judged by a panel of key members of the wedding industry.

Ed's wife and fellow director, Donna Wright, said: "This latest win highlights the growing demand for an alternative to the standard white marquee within the wedding market.

"More and more couples are moving away from the formal and traditional wedding and are looking for something a little more original and atmospheric. Our Giant Hat tipis provide the perfect alternative, without compromising on reliability and flexibility."
