On the aisle to prestigious award
PICKY brides are notoriously hard to please, but one Warwick wedding planner has managed to maintain a golden record with the ladies in white.
Effortless glamour may be the goal, but Peta Murphy feels blessed to have all her hard work recognised in three nominations for the country's most prestigious bridal awards.
This is the third year in a row that Mrs Murphy's business Warwick Wedding and Events has been nominated for Australian Bridal Industry Academy awards, which are based entirely on feedback from the brides themselves.
"It just means that they're happy and we're ecstatic that we're making their day the best it can be... it's a real honour,” Mrs Murphy said.
Making the list of national nominees in the ABIA awards means maintaining a consistent 95 per cent feedback rate from clients.
"It's very hard to keep that level of service, but we've done it,” Mrs Murphy said.
"It means we can never drop the ball, everything has to be 110 per cent.”
Attention to the finer details and lots and lots of planning are the secrets to success when it comes to pulling off a first class wedding, according to Mrs Murphy.
The recognition is paying off and Mrs Murphy is getting ready to maintain stellar service in her biggest wedding season yet.
"We're really looking forward to this year it's going to be our biggest yet... we're already booking weddings right up until 2020... it's just phenomenal,” Mrs Murphy said.
The ABIA awards will be announced in June this year and Warwick Weddings and Events has nominations in the categories of wedding styling, floral design and photography.
