Kia ora (welcome) to the home of Wedding Industry Awards [NZ] 2022


Our Theme in 2022:


“The Power of Us”


Our Mission – recognise, distinguish and honor the exceptional talent found within the vibrant New Zealand wedding and events industry.


If you’re reading this, you’ll be aware COVID-19 continues to affect many businesses and events. Unfortunately, Wedding Industry Awards (NZ) was not immune to these impacts.

We had almost lost hope we’d ever see an awards gala this side of 2022.

Then, the Prime Ministers recent announcement in April changed all that. Aotearoa moved to ORANGE. We’ve never liked a colour so much as Orange.
The game-changer news the Country would re-open under this newest setting, and moreover, indoor event guest limits would increase from a maximum 100 to what seemed like a gazillion was the news we’d waiting for! 


We’re super-excited to be able to announce AUGUST 20th 2022 as the date for our 5th annual awards gala.


This years awards gala will be stellar to say the least. We combine FINALISTS from 2020 AND 2021 and announce WINNERS, August 20th 2022, from each of these respective years.

As such, we also made the difficult decision not to open NOMINATIONS to 2022 entries, as we wanted to honour the patience, endurance, and sheer tenacity of our 2020/2021 FINALISTS and give them a gala experience uniquely theirs.
