 ABIA award winners & finalists

The ABIA system is based on bridal feedback where brides are asked to rate their wedding suppliers in the criteria of

Quality of Product, Quality of Service, Value for Money and Attitude of Staff.

ABIA then uses a mathematical calculation to determine the Winner & Finalists of each wedding category in each state
(The Annual State Bridal Industry Awards) and nationally (The Designer of Dreams Awards)
From this, we are able to hold the ABIA Award ceremonies to recognize those wedding designers who have achieved excellence in their respective categories.


Contemporary Cakes and Classes has been voted by their wedding cake clients a finalist, with over 95% ratings for the last 9 years.
