Gold Coast Wedding Businesses
| Chosen by ABIA

On the 19th of June 2018, the ABIA featured a group of talented Gold Coast Wedding Businesses at the city’s entertainment heart, The Star Casino!

As we were hosting the 2018 ABIA National Designer of Dreams Awards for Australia's Best Wedding Businesses, we wanted to settle for nothing but fantastic! That is why we carefully selected the talented, experienced & unique wedding vendors below to design what was one of the most magical wedding events this year! 

Read the positive experience ABIA had with these wonderful wedding businesses prior to and on the night of the awards! 

Chandni Events

Luxury Indian Wedding Decorator

The ABIA Awards were styled by Brisbane-Based Director Aivan Chand, who had a colourful vision from the get-go. The unique ideas & vision came to fruition on the night and were an absolute highlight. Every component of Chandni Events’ styling was remarkable! Intricate details from colourfully embellished pillows, umbrella centerpieces, brass statues and a next-level entrance, made for an instagram-worthy event! We would love to see a wedding host a colourful event just like this but outdoors for that x-factor!

NSI Productions

We knew the quality of the film & service was going to be second to none as Dannii & the team from NSI Productions had recently won the State Queensland ABIA Award. Kindness, patience & talent is how we would describe this magical team from the Gold Coast’s Burleigh Heads.

Vavachi Entertainment

Gold Coast Wedding Singer & Entertainment

If you are a lover of romance & live music, Vavachi Entertainment is a must for your wedding day or next event! Their opera performance first disguised as a Singing Chef was the perfect way to introduce the night and get the room excited. As for their Luciano Pavarotti rendition, this had all the guests enthralled, with some left in tears of joy!

Dance Masala

Bollywood Dance School / Hen Party Ideas

Dance Masala were an absolute highlight at this year’s ABIA National Awards. With Chandni Events’ luxury Bollywood theme, it was safe to say this dance group was going to be the icing on the cake – and that they were! As we got to know Andrea, the director of the Brisbane Bollywood Dance School, we thought a dance lesson with them could be a super fun & unique hens party idea with your squad!
