Best of 2010 Awards!

Benek Lisefski • January 31, 2011

Welcome to the first annual WeddingWise awards!

Since we launched a little more than a year ago we’ve accumulated a directory of over 2300 New Zealand wedding vendors from all over the country, collected more than 500 ratings and reviews from real brides and grooms, and helped thousands of kiwis make smart wedding vendors choices. Over this time some wedding vendors have stood out as consistently exceptional and we want to recognise them for their efforts.

We’re honoring the best of the best in New Zealand weddings, as chosen by the public and by our editors. We hope this will begin an ongoing tradition of awards for excellence in NZ weddings that will be coveted by vendors in this important and challenging market.

Congratulations to all of the amazing wedding vendors who are honored here today!
