A message from our Director Wendy El-Khoury:
“Wedded Wonderland is here to support our Community – Couples and Businesses alike, as we continue to drive the campaign #saveourweddings. We know this is an incredibly challenging time for all. To all the wonderful Business Owners who have and continue to work hard behind the scenes representing this industry, thank you. To our Couples, feel free to reach out and engage in our private Wedded Wonderland Facebook Group. which continues to provide support and guidance.
We are Wedded to celebrating Weddings once lockdowns and restrictions are eased. Our Industry and Couples are and should be a key consideration in decision making for our Parliamentarians. In some States there has been more success than others and we recognize this. We are most certainly in this together. Our collective voices have had a huge impact in ensuring an understanding on the importance of Weddings. We will continue driving this message forward with positivity, tenacity and of course… love.”
