A Harborough couple who play acoustic music for weddings are celebrating success at the 2014 Wedding Industry Awards.

Musicians Will and Charlie Ball, of Mango Acoustic Duo, were one of the companies walking away with an award after being highly commended for the Best Wedding Industry Website.

Will plays acoustic guitar and sings backing vocals while Charlie sings lead vocals.

They have been professional musicians since 1998, married each other in 2006, and have since played at well over 500 ceremonies as the wedding band Mango Acoustic Duo.

The awards hosted by Sarah Hewson of Sky News and held at The Bloomsbury Ballroom in London, recognise the best in service, creativity, innovation, professionalism and passion in the wedding sector.

There was a 450-strong audience on hand at the event.

Charlie said: “We were shocked to get shortlisted to the last 20 out of 1,250 wedding companies and then to be highly commended was just amazing.

“It means so much to have won a national award for our website which Will designed and built himself.”
