Since CHOICE published this report we’ve discovered that the wedding industry is a hot topic of debate amongst consumers, industry experts and media.
As a result we recently invited some of Australia’s most influential wedding suppliers and lifestyle, food and consumer bloggers to weigh into the debate This roundtable discussion offered an interesting insight into the many complex views on this issue and its potential impact on both the consumer and supplier.
Anthea Leonard from Sweet Art, Lynleigh McPherson from Belinda Franks Catering, Lorraine Elliot from Not Quite Nigella, Phoebe Gazal from Papier d’Amour, David Mendes from KAREN Magazine, Alicia Richardson from The Knot, Claire Aristedis from Lifegloss, Matt Lee from Infinity Photography, and Matthew Duchesne from Milk & Honey Photography attended the event, which was moderated by Project Runway mentor, bridal fashion designer and expert on all things wedding, Henry Roth.
