River Deck venue wins wedding award

THE Australian Bridal Industry Academy announced its annual bridal industry award winners recently and the River Deck Restaurant at Noosa Marina was the overall winner on the Sunshine Coast for Restaurant Reception.

The restaurant was also awarded runner-up for the Queensland Restaurant Reception for the second year in a row, with an impressive score of 99.62%.

River Deck Restaurant's wedding co-ordinator Sue also made the finalist list, in seventh place in the Best Function Co-ordinator category.

The award winners are determined based on feedback given by 5680 past brides and grooms who are asked to rate their wedding suppliers in the criteria of quality of product, quality of service, value for money and attitude of staff.

Hundreds of wedding suppliers who competed for ABIA's prestigious wedding industry awards were ranked, rated and evaluated.

The Australian wedding market is worth an estimated $3 billion a year.
