Wedding Disasters A Thing Of The Past

WA brides now have less to worry about on their big day thanks to the appointment of our first ABIA accredited marriage celebrant. After hearing about hundreds of wedding disasters from Perth brides, a local marriage celebrant has finally become the only WA celebrant to be accredited by the Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA).

Dru Soltys, who has a modern approach to the traditional wedding day, says he is pleased to be the first marriage celebrant in WA to receive the accreditation from ABIA, who have been reviewing and accrediting reputable wedding suppliers for would-be-brides for over 13 years.

Renee says her wedding day was almost ruined when she chose her hair and makeup artists based on price and location, and then found out two weeks before her wedding that they had gone out of business. "In my eyes it was the worst thing that could have happened" said Renee. “I was absolutely devastated, I couldn't believe it, two weeks to go and I had no one to do my hair and makeup. I had paid for everything up front for my hair and makeup along with my three bridesmaids and my mum" said Renee.

The Australian Bridal Industry Academy was founded in 1997 as the National Industry Authority designed to protect brides. The directory is published to assist future brides in their selection of quality wedding suppliers. As the only accredited marriage celebrant in WA, and the first to be recognised by ABIA in their 13 years of operation, Dru Soltys says he goes above and beyond the call of duty for his couples, and they all seem to agree; “Dru made us feel like we had the greatest love story ever known and he was the one who wanted to share it with everyone we know and love” says Sarah.

Anna agrees; “Dru is truly passionate about the work he does and he went above and beyond to ensure we were both entirely happy with the ceremony”. Natalie also says “Dru was an awesome celebrant. He went out of his way to ensure that our day was as personal & special as it could be”

It is this level of commitment and dedication to his field that has put Dru above the rest, and his accreditation from ABIA is an assurance to Perth brides that they’re getting only the very best, and meaning the disaster stories we all hear about are likely to be a thing of the past for Dru’s brides.

"My advice to all the brides-to-be out there is to use an ABIA member.” Says Renee. “Do your research to find one. These business's out there that take the time to become ABIA members do it for a reason and that is to make 'our day' the most amazing, memorable and stress-free day of our lives".
