18th Victorian Annual Bridal Industry Awards
One of Victoria’s finest wedding vendors, Wedding Destinations was honoured at the 2016 Victorian Annual Bridal Industry Awards held at Leonda by the Yarra, on the 16th of May 2016.
A total of 5,443 Victorian Brides & Grooms nominated 317 wedding vendors, 236 Finalists and 35 Winners of the 18th Victorian ABIA Awards.
The Chairman of the ABIA, Mr John O' Meara congratulated Wedding Destinations on their achievement. Mr O' Meara said that Wedding Destinations should be extremely proud of the achievement as it was businesses like Wedding Destinations which complemented and elevated the wedding industry with their attention to detail and the pride, passion and professional manner in which they delivered their wedding product to the bridal customer.
The ABIA’s are a much sought-after Award for Australian wedding suppliers as they are determined by the votes of past brides. Each year almost 30,000 brides are registered to vote for their most outstanding wedding suppliers. Wedding Destinations were nominated for an ABIA based on the quality of product, quality of service, value for money and the attitude of the staff who serviced the Brides & Grooms’ needs, before, during and after their wedding day.
A total of 35 wedding categories were represented at the Awards including Limousine Hire, Marriage Celebrants, Wedding Cake Designers, Decorators, Photographers, Disc Jockeys, Video Producers, Make-Up Artists, Reception Centres, Wedding Florists, Wedding Stationery and Special Wedding Services.
The attendees received an opening address from the Chairman of the ABIA, Mr John O' Meara who congratulated the Finalists on their achievement. Mr O' Meara said that the wedding supplier was unique; as they had just one unrepeatable day to deliver excellence in their products and services. O' Meara went on to say that the quality of the work reflected in the newlywed’s votes was something that each and every one of the attendees should be proud of.

Thanks for your on-the-ground insight Daniel.
We too have certainly seen a shift towards Koh Samui, which as you say, is in part due to the increase in Phuket Wedding prices and the Beach Wedding restrictions. There are of course some exceptions and affordable options with Beach access do exist in Phuket, such as the stunning Cape Panwa Resort, on the southern tip of the island.
To explore these options, Brides are always welcome to discuss Phuket or Samui weddings with one of our planners.
Websites such as yours Daniel also offer an invaluable perspective into Thailand Wedding Photography that is certain to promote a keen interest for this gorgeous destination, while inspiring couples already decided upon Thailand to get creative with their event.
Thanks again Daniel and we look forward to seeing more of your stunning work in the future.
Great read!, I knew that the weather was better but didnt know why.. And yes Samui is my winner all around better!.. It the past 10+ years Thailand has been a huge growing market for destination wedding!, Phuket and Koh Samui in particular... Phuket's market being the bigger of the islands with the most venues, suppliers, the best photographer & videographers to choose from. However in the past few years weddings have decreased in Phuket and increased in Koh Samui and a few other Islands. Because Phuket banded its beach weddings and all private beaches are no longer private, huge crowds surrounding the wedding celebrations, oh and not to mention the prices for everything have gone up 30% or more, many people have moved over to Koh Samui to have their wedding, Samui has always been popular for weddings but in general they were smaller more simple weddings. Koh Samui with the growth of the market has really stepped up in quality and it has some of the most stunning wedding venues and locations in the world!, its much more private with amazing sea view, beach front villas and resorts making it the new leader for destination wedding couples around the world!..
