Last week I had the pleasure of attending the first Gold Coast and Hinterland Brides Choice awards with our Business Development Manager Amy Howell. It was held in the beautiful Panorama room overlooking the lights of the Gold Coast at the Art Centre.

The evening started with canapes and drinks followed by a social media marketing presentation by Fred Porter from Agent Digital. With a total of 23 categories it was a pleasure to see fellow wedding industry experts receive acknowledgement for their hard work. The fantastic thing about the Bride Choice awards is that brides vote without the suppliers having to send a request.
A 2 week marketing campaign was run through Facebook allowing brides to vote for their top 5 suppliers in all aspects of wedding planning. I wasn’t aware we were even nominated until I received an email to attend the cocktail evening! It was a great honour to win the award last week for best 4 star hotel wedding venue especially when I found the other nominees were from Peppers, Mecure, RACV and Watermark.

Weddings at Crowne Plaza Surfers Paradise is certainly a team effort and I am delighted to share this award with everyone at the hotel who works tirelessly to ensure every wedding day is special and day to remember. A special thank you to all the amazing brides for taking the time to vote for us!
