Regent’s Conferences & Events has been named one of Hitched’s 2020 Couples’ Champions for going the extra mile during the pandemic.

Following more than 400 nominations in a bid to recognise stand-out wedding businesses over the past year, a panel of judges representing Hitched selected Regent’s as one of the winners.

The stunning venue nestled in Regent’s Park was nominated by paramedic Paige Stride and police officer Rob Wilkins after they were gifted their dream wedding by Regent’s worth £20,000 as part of the venue’s ‘giving back’ campaign to identify and reward one deserving keyworker couple who last year had their wedding plans thwarted by the pandemic.

Paige said: “Regent’s has gone far and beyond running a wedding competition, they have strived to make our special day something for all of our emergency service colleagues to get behind and be part of.”

Since winning the competition, the venue’s events manager, Rafael Azzopardi, and the rest of the team have been working with the couple to host their dream wedding later this year.

Rob said: “Rafael’s humour and consistent approach striving for excellent results sets our minds at ease every time we talk.”

Rafael Azzopardi said: “This is such a lovely gesture by Paige and Rob to nominate us for this award. As a venue that can host both indoor and outdoor weddings as well as a complete range of other meetings and events, we were keen to give something back to thank the keyworkers for all of their dedication throughout this last year. We’re really looking forward to playing a part in their special day!”
