Oh! What a Night! – 18th September 2013September 25, 2013 2:07 PM
This is the third event of its kind this year and each one of them proving to be more successful than the previous one.
Wednesday’s function saw 100 wedding professionals discuss their business, and share their knowledge & experience.
Wedding suppliers have been very busy over the last few months, as we are in peak wedding season so this was also a good opportunity for all of us to catch up.
Yesterday’s venue was generously supplied by the Hilton Cairns. We were served a welcome drink on the ‘6 Degrees Terrace’ where the function took place as well as some fantastic canapés. The ‘6 Degree Terrace’ overlooks the Cairns Inlet and is a perfect wedding venue.
Gold coins donations were collected on behalf of the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre on Fitzroy Island as a way to give back to our wonderful environment.
The focus of the evening was ‘Flowers and Cakes’. We welcomed Rachel from Blush Floral and James from Cairns Wedding Cakes as speakers. Rachel and James know their business so well, no questions were left unanswered. As part of his contribution to the event James made beautifully presented chocolate cupcakes topped with a gold leaf for everyone to take home as well as a four tiered box of cupcakes drawn as a prize. Rachel finished off her presentation by a traditional ‘throw of the wedding bouquet’.
Due to the recent changes to the council wedding regulations in regards to ceremonies held on public outdoor locations, we thought appropriate to invite Brett and Patricia from the Cairns Regional Council to update us with the latest changes.
Some very generous industry partners have come forward and offered some great prizes to be drawn on the night:
- The Hilton Cairns – 1 night accommodation for two with breakfast
- Passions of Paradise – Reef trip to the Great Barrier Reef
- Cairns Wedding Cakes – 100 + Cupcakes
- The Cultural Place – Indigenous artwork and a restaurant voucher
The purpose of these events is to unite wedding industry partners to offer better services to engaged couples getting married in our beautiful Far North Queensland. Having ‘Event Focus’ and specialty speakers allows everyone within the industry to be aware of each other’s business therefore providing a better service.Business Promotion Opportunity, Cairns Wedding Expo, Wedding Cakes, Wedding Expos-Bridal Fairs, Wedding Flowers, Wedding Networking Event
