WHO will win the coveted Wedding of the Year title this year?
Category winners in The Standard’s prestigious annual competition will be announced at the Bridalparty Bridal Expo at the Lighthouse Theatre this Sunday.
Fifteen couples submitted their big day for the competition, answering a detailed questionnaire about how they met and their wedding day and providing a selection of photos that captured the special moments.
For the first time, entrants have nominated their wedding in either traditional, vintage or modern categories.
In recent weeks The Standard has run a profile on each couple and the public’s votes have now been counted.
These form 50 per cent of the total, with official judges’ votes forming the other half of the overall competition result.
The winners will be announced at 2pm at the expo and the winner of a fourth category — Gown of the Year — will be decided by judges on the day and also presented on stage.
Wedding of the Year is part of the annual Bridalparty Bridal Expo which brings a range of wedding-related business and service providers in the one location to help engaged couples plan and organise their ceremonies.
The Bridal Expo is a chance to see what products and services are available in the region and brings together an array of exhibitors from celebrants to ceremony locations, cars to cakes and caterers and everything in between.
Bridal Expo organiser Tracey Togni said the expo combined more than 40 professional bridal products and service providers in the one location, helping to make the wedding planing process as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
The day includes a bridal fashion parade and the launch of The Standard’s Your Wedding 2014 magazine.
The Bridalparty Bridal Expo will be held on Sunday at the Lighthouse Theatre from 10am to 4pm. It will include a bridal fashion parade and The Standard Wedding of the Year at 2pm.
