SUDBURY -- Northern Ontario was well represented at this year's Ontario Wedding Awards as 12 vendors form the region headed to Toronto compete for top honours.

One business from North Bay, a business from Alban and ten vendors from Sudbury have all been nominated in various categories.

Among those in the running is Guilty Pleasures Bakeshop which is competing for cake designer of the year.

The shops owner, Justine Martin said "Last year there were zero businesses from Northern Ontario represented in the Ontario Wedding Awards so it's super exciting this year that they're recognizing all of the talent that we have."

She adds, "there's places like Flower Towne, Rebecca Bose Photography and Lavish Events, they're all really cool, really great local businesses so it's really nice that we're getting a little bit of representation now,"
