Derby – 26 of January of 2022.
Hitched.co.uk, part of The Knot Worldwide Group – a global leader in the wedding sector – is kicking off 2022 by
announcing the names of the wedding professionals and businesses that have won a Hitched Wedding Award.
Weddings have been one of the sectors hardest hit by the pandemic and both professionals and couples have
risen to the occasion. They have worked harder than ever to be able to continue celebrating love safely and
now, after weddings practically came to a standstill in 2020, and 2021 was a year focused on recovery, the time
has come for the most important recognition in the sector: the Hitched Wedding Awards.
NJA Media award.
NJA Media of Derbyshire has been awarded best Wedding Photographers in the Hitched Wedding Awards 2022. This accolade demonstrates how valued this vendor is within the sector, as so many couples they have
worked with have left them positive feedback.
The Knot Worldwide has been rewarding deserving wedding businesses with awards for nearly a decade – but
this year in particular, the awards recognise businesses and individuals who have gone above and beyond to
serve their clients during one of the most testing times the industry has ever experienced.
The Hitched Wedding Awards recognise excellence offered by wedding businesses in the UK, and signify a
trusted seal of approval for couples planning their weddings.
This year’s awards are based on nearly 8 million opinions from couples who use Hitched and their international
counterparts to help plan their weddings – there is no better judge than a happy couple who have experienced
the vendor’s work first-hand, after all!
More than 16,000 venues and suppliers participated in this year’s Hitched Wedding Awards. NJA Media received
several glowing reviews on Hitched, making them the winner of the award in their field.
“Here at Hitched we are delighted to be able to celebrate wedding businesses who go above and beyond for
their couples,” says Zoe Burke, Editor.
“It’s been an unbelievably difficult few years for our sector, so it means so much to us that we can commend
these businesses, and reward and recognise them for their efforts, based on honest feedback from the couples
who have worked with them.
“We received so many incredible reviews for so many different businesses – it’s so positive to see!”
“This year, for the first time, we are awarding these prizes simultaneously in 13 of the 16 countries where The
Knot Worldwide is present. We are therefore in a moment of great recognition and prestige for the professionals
of the wedding sector in the UK as they become part, along with the winners of countries like France, Italy, Spain,
Mexico, Brazil or USA among others, of the best wedding professionals in the world,” says Jose Melo, recently
appointed VP Sales EMEA of The Knot Worldwide Group, of which Hitched is part of in the UK.
“We want to continue with Hitched’s long history of celebrating wedding businesses and provide those giving an
outstanding level of service in the wedding sector with recognition of a job well done, so that couples who are
organising a wedding can choose their team of professionals confident that everything will go well and knowing
that they are hiring great experts in the sector,” Melo continues.
“In the UK, couples hire an average of 10 suppliers for their wedding. At Hitched and the rest of the companies in
The Knot Worldwide Group, as leading websites in the wedding sector, we want to be a fundamental source of
information for couples and serve as a guide when it comes to deciding who they are going to entrust with all the
details of their big day. We are talking about a unique moment in the life of a couple and therefore the stakes are
high, so we think it is the most fair and relevant thing to base these awards on their opinions.
This year, moreover, we are aware that the sector needs reasons to celebrate and these awards represent hope at the
beginning of a year in which we are going to experience an unprecedented boom in weddings,” says Melo.

Wedding Photographers, Wedding Planners, Beauty, Hair & Make Up, Decoration Hire, Groom Attire, Wedding
Stationery, Wedding Favours, Wedding Entertainment, Wedding Cakes, Bridal Shops & Jewellery, Wedding Cars
