Gala Event – Friday 1st October 2021 – POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

Welcome to the home of Wedding Industry Awards [NZ] 2021

“The Power of Us”.



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


Well, as you are all aware, this new strain of COVID-19 is affecting many, many businesses and events. Unfortunately, Wedding Industry Awards (NZ) is not immune to these impacts. We have done our utmost to hold out for as long as possible in the hope the current alert level would de-escalate to LEVEL 1. This looks unlikely at this stage. As at today [17/09/2021], Auckland remains at level 4, while the rest of the Country operates at alert level 2.

 The combination of the resurgence of COVID-19 in the community, the instability of alert levels as they apply to events, regional lockdowns, and increasing costs we continue to sustain as a business the longer LEVEL 2 continues mean we have had to  make the extremely difficult decision to again postpone the awards this year.

We are awaiting a new date from our venue of choice in the hope we can still host the awards gala this side of this year. If we’re not successful in our best efforts to host the awards gala in 2021, we will engage a date in early 2022. 

For our 2021 FINALISTS, hang in there. We’re doing our utmost to reschedule this gorgeous event and bring a slice of happiness amidst a very challenging time.

For future upates please follow the Wedding Industry Awards on facebook or visit this site.

WIANZ Director.
