King's Lynn entertainer receives magical news
Magician Josh Maddocks, who works in and around Lynn, has won an award for best wedding entertainment in the Hitched Wedding Awards.
More than 16,000 venues and suppliers participated in this year’s awards and the entertainer received several glowing reviews making them the winner of the award in their field.
Decided by Hitched couples, the Hitched Wedding Awards highlight the wedding businesses that have provided exceptional quality of work and customer service.
Zoe Burke, editor said: "Here at Hitched we are delighted to be able to celebrate wedding businesses who go above and beyond for their couples."
"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 award recognises Josh in the category wedding entertainment as one of the most recommended professionals by married couples and the accolade demonstrates how valued this vendor is within the sector, as so many couples they have worked with have left them positive feedback.
Josh said: "I have just had some fantastic news that I have won the entertainment award for Norfolk from Hitched.co.uk.
"To me, winning an award has been incredible as I feel I have worked so hard to find my place in the wedding industry, with so many options of entertainment to choose from, not just magicians but all kinds of acts and out of everyone in our region I have found out I was the winner.
" I'm still quite shocked and I'm so thankful to all of the brides and grooms for recommending me, I really wasn't expecting it."
"I'm so proud to be able to represent King's Lynn and West Norfolk, thank you so much for taking the time to read this."
