perfect wedding day

“Kristen & Ryan
“9th of April 2010 – New South Wales

“ABIA was my bible when planning our wedding for the 9th April 2010. We used ABIA to find almost every supplier as we were one of the first of our friends to get married.

It was incredibly helpful as we knew we were getting ‘the best’ when booking suppliers recommended by ABIA. As it turns out, all of the suppliers we selected based on their connection with ABIA were perfect, making our wedding day the most incredible day of our lives. It was our fairy tale come true. I certainly let the suppliers and every bride to be I know that I got the details from ABIA! Thank you!” said Kristen.

Kirsten & Ryan - Real Bride Story

How I selected ABIA suppliers:

“When we got engaged we started planning immediately. We drew up a list of all the different suppliers/items we required and commenced the research process. The ABIA website made it easy. We looked at the directory, as well as past and present winners of the prestigious awards. We then started to contact/visit the suppliers within each area, locking them away one by one. We were so impressed with how professional and helpful they all were throughout the entire process. We had no dramas and thoroughly enjoyed the entire planning process, stress free. We couldn’t believe that couples didn’t enjoy planning weddings! We loved it! The actual day arrived and we were both completely calm and collected as everything was organised and ready to go. It was a perfect day, nothing went wrong and it was all thanks to our suppliers. They made our fairy tale come true”, said Kristen.

Kristen & Ryans’ Dream Wedding Day:

Kristen and her bridesmaids’ makeup was by Kesty Munoz. “Kesty made us all feel comfortable, natural, beautiful and confident” said Kristen. “She did amazing work! She is a true master of her craft!” The bridal party travelled to the ceremony in style in cars provided by Angel Limousines. “They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed” said Kristen – a must on your wedding day.

Angela from the Monash Country Club created the perfect environment for Kristen and Ryan’s ceremony and reception. “She listened to us and made the day run incredibly smoothly” said Kristen. “Our celebrant, Louise Spedding, helped create the greatest memory we will ever have. It was personal and romantic. Penny from Red Poppies was so extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process and she created the most gorgeous floral arrangements for us. They complimented our style and our theme. The cake was from Brides in Bloom and was organised efficiently and professionally, leaving us with no stress or worries. They created the most delicious masterpiece!’ said Kristen. The music was provided by Above & Beyond DJ’s. “They played a great mix of songs that suited our style. We danced the night away” said Kristen.
