Since launching ‘Erika Biddlecombe Independent Celebrant’ in January 2020, Erika has developed from strength to strength conducting over 600 personally written and delivered weddings, funerals and naming ceremonies.

And in November 2022 she became the happy recipient of not one but two wedding awards!

The Wedding Industry Awards is renowned for recognising and rewarding excellence in the wedding industry and Erika was nominated by one of her wedding couples for the award. What followed was a rigorous series of steps taking her closer to the award which incorporated a voting system by her recent couples and judging by a panel of wedding experts.  Erika was delighted to receive the only ‘Highly Commended’ award for the title Wedding Celebrant South Central Region at an action-packed evening ceremony!

A couple of weeks later and Erika was surprised to also receive the International Wedding Awards, again for Wedding Celebrant in the region.

Erika commented: ‘These awards came as a much-appreciated surprise, reward and recognition for the hard work and dedication I give to each of my ceremonies. Whether it is a wedding, funeral, naming or family ceremony I always give my clients my utmost attention and deliver a bespoke ceremony that will be cherished for years to come. However, without a doubt, it is serving my local community that is of paramount importance to me.’
