Nightingales Wedding Planner in Sydney is proud to announce that we have won two categories in the inaugural Weddings and Events of Australia 'Awards for Excellence' which was held at the stylish Sofitel Wentworth Sydney.
Kathy Apostolidis established Nightingales in 1994. Since then, Nightingales' team of Wedding Planners and Stylists has been setting benchmarks for quality and service in the Wedding Industry both in Australia and overseas. Widely considered as experts in our field, Nightingales weddings and consultants have featured in numerous magazines including Bride 2 Be, Real Weddings, Complete Wedding, Cosmopolitan and OK Magazine.
"We are so honoured to receive these 2 prestigious awards and to receive recognition for the personal service and incredibly hard work and creativity we put into the planning and styling of our lovely clients' weddings."The Weddings and Events of Australia 'Awards for Excellence' event brought together the wedding industry's elite from both Sydney and Newcastle/Hunter Region along with celebrities and high profile guests which included Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Steven Khalil, Joh Bailey and Lauren Eagle.
Guests looked stunning in their glamorous Oscar inspired outfits, and really demonstrated how important the night was to them in being able to celebrate the wedding industry.
Celebrity presenters Laura Csortan and Adam Williams presented the night before a special WEOA News Bulletin was read by Channel Ten news reader, Ron Wilson. The crowd were entertained and danced the night away to the spectacular live band provided by Evan Powis Entertainment.
"This award not only recognises the 19 years of creating amazing wedding days and memories for couples, it also inspires us to continue to strive in raising the bar in offering exceptional Wedding Planning and creative Wedding Styling services to our clients."Weddings and Events of Australia also took the opportunity to announce what is in the pipeline for this savvy industry organisation, which included their expansion into Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Tasmania, Northern Territory and Adelaide, going gay friendly, as well as announcing the new judging panel for the 2014 Weddings and Events of Australia 'Awards for Excellence'.
