Wedding Industry Awards (formerly Brides Choice Awards) is a non-member organisation which was launched in 2008 and has been there to acknowledge those wedding businesses that have excelled and exceeded the expectations of their Newlywed Couples from around Regional Australia. That’s right the Newlywed Couples of Australia VOTE for those businesses that have extended outside the expectations of Newlywed Couples, what better way to be recognised than have your Newlywed Couples tell the world about your business a massive referral opportunity. But more importantly being acknowledged and rewarded for your endeavours.

Wedding Industry Awards has become a significant referral mechanism for Newly Engaged Coupes to select Wedding Businesses from the region of their wedding.

Thank you kindly! We really appreciate this award and feel honoured to receive.
Thank you for the great work you do in the wedding industry. Much appreciated.

Thank you so much! We had a great night, and we’re both still blown away by winning our three Brides Choice Awards! Especially the Best of the Best. It really is such a nice compliment knowing the awards were voted by past Brides & Grooms, we do love what we do, and this recognition just makes our jobs that more enjoyable.

Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of such a wonderful event!
We are so grateful to the couples who also voted for us, which enabled us to be a part of the night. It was a great night to also meet and mingle with others in the industry.
We are still overjoyed by our win and so flattered to take home our first award within our industry. We look forward to celebrating with everyone again next year!
