Winning a National title has been fantastic for business and has really raised our profile. Our brides and grooms really respect the awards and a lot of them have found us on TWIA website.
Our photographer, florist, stationary, hair and makeup were
all either national or regional winners. It meant a lot to know they were
all at the top of their game before booking.
I love the whole experience of TWIA. It generates business, I love the events and it’s great to meet others in the industry. I’ll definitely enter each year!
It’s a no-brainer for me.
I’ve found all my wedding suppliers through TWIA. It’s so great that it’s voted for by past customers. We get an honest and true opinion.
