2010 New South Wales Annual Bridal Industry Awards

Over 350 of NSW top suppliers celebrated their amazing achievements in the Bridal Industry, at Dockside Darling Harbour on Monday night. It was a spectacular evening in Sydney, the sun was shining over the harbour, as this year’s finalists sipped their cocktails and prepared themselves for the much anticipated wait for their category to be called out and the winner of the 2010 ABIA Award revealed.

This year we had a special Christmas theme for the Awards and invited our guests to Shine in Silver & Gold! Silver of course represents the Finalist Awards & Gold represents the Winners Awards. The room was decorated beautifully with Silver & Gold chair sashes courtesy of Events by Nadia and Sally from the Dockside Group delivered our Christmas fantasy tables with amazing candelabra and baubles in sparkling silver & glittering gold. Thank you to everyone who made the effort to get into the theme, you all looked beautiful.

The evening kicked off with a performance by The Hayley Sales Trio and then after a short welcome and introduction by Chairman John O’Meara the Awards were underway, presented by A Wedding MC’s, Peter Miller for the rest of the evening.

The competition this year was fierce with the closest Winners & Runners up being separated by only 00.01 in the some categories.

There were 41 categories and 400 finalists battling it out for this year’s ABIA, as determined by the over 7,700 bridal ratings.

After the Awards the guests danced the night away to party tunes provided by Theo from Maestro Entertainment. The team at Impact Av put on a sound and lighting show which dazzled the audience while the guys from Polite in Public provided the perfect backdrop for guests to capture the atmosphere of the evening in true celebrity style, with photos on the red carpet. All photos are available for download so thank you to Polite in Public for making our winners & finalists look and feel like the stars they are.
