Congratulations to the following businesses, which have qualified as an ABIA Industry Award Finalist for the 22nd Victorian ABIA Wedding Industry Awards.

The ABIA thank the Wedding Vendors which took the courage to be anonymously rated and evaluated by their wedding couples over the last year. We extend a further thank you to the couples who have taken the time to nominate & judge the Vendors which contributed to their Dream Wedding Day.
