Scottish Wedding Awards finalists vow to do their best

Two VisitLanarkshire Venues, New Lanark Mill Hotel and Bothwell Bridge Hotel, have been shortlisted as the top two finalists in the Wedding Venue of the Year category for the Southwest region in the inaugural Scottish Wedding Awards 2013.

Making the shortlist is a well recognized achievement. Nominations are formed from a variety of sources over the course of a year including reviewers and judging experts, from brides and consumers and from other industry contacts.

The regional and overall winner will be announced at this year's award ceremony, hosted by popular DJ Gina McKie, on Monday 22nd April 2013 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow. Key wedding staff members from both New Lanark Mill Hotel and Bothwell Bridge Hotel will be attending the black-tie dinner and hoping for a win.

Lynne Cooper, Wedding and Events Manager at New Lanark commented, "Thank you so much to all of our brides who have nominated us. This makes all the hard work worthwhile. The minimum we will achieve is runner up for the South-west of Scotland which is a huge achievement for us. We're over the moon and keeping our fingers crossed for the 22nd."
