The Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) was founded in 1997 to protect bridal customers and promote bridal suppliers with Awards for Excellence. ABIA accredited suppliers go through a rigorous assessment by both the academy and feed back from some 6000 brides annually.
ABIA is the most remarkable and respected premier bridal industry association.
The foundation for the ABIA Accreditation system is an extensive ongoing data base and is created from both the brides wedding experience feed back and ABIA awards for excellence which generate a wealth of accurate information for future brides about who are the highest rated wedding suppliers.
The standards are not determined by ABIA but by the only people who are really qualified to report on them – the bride and groom.
To be an accredited supplier and to receive annual awards makes it easy to distinguish the high quality suppliers and The River Deck Restaurant is one of those outstanding suppliers.
