TOPVENDOR INDUSTRY EVENT - LACE ON TIMBER

Our event this year was all about celebrating excellence in our industry, making new friends, showcasing your business and inspiring one another with all the beautiful work from our 2018 participants.

There was a lot of excitement about the event being hosted by Lace on Timber for the Gauteng wedding vendors. Everyone looked spectacular in their evening dresses and suits!

Upon arrival guests were greeted with delicious canapes, sparkling wine and a live performance from Monkeys Wedding. The fantastic entertainment and beautiful venue set the stage for guests to mingle and catch up with friends. All the stunning furniture outside was sponsored and styled by Mooi Maak.

The theme this year was industrial but still romantic, with black as the accent colour for the industrial feeling and light pink and gold with the romantic feeling.

Sustainability is currently on everybody’s lips, and was also one of the major inspirations for the theme. Dry leaves and flowers was combined with fresh flowers to bring out the various textures.

All the floral work was styled by the very talented Jeanel from Pebble and Lace. The beautiful linen on the tables were sponsored by Set the Table.

Entrepreneur, Motivational speaker and TV personality Leandie du Randt Bosch was the charming emcee. During the course of the evening, Leandie announced the finalists and winners in each category who were welcomed on stage with a certificate or trophy.

We were honored to have two guest speakers at the event; Eve Poplett from Splendid Wedding Company and Otto de Jager van Otto de Jager Events, they shared their experience and knowledge with the guests who attended.

Thank you to Mega Music DJs for sponsoring the AV screens, lighting and sound for the event. We also really appreciate your help with the award presentations and for surprising the guests with your in-house pyrotechnics (the first of it’s kind in South Africa).

Another fantastic sponsor on the evening was VIP Photobooth. Guests thoroughly enjoyed having their photos taken at the photobooth, and being able to take the photos home with them.Thank you to the amazing team from JCclick who captured the event beautifully!

The evening was a massive success, and everyone involved also enjoyed it.

2018 TOPVENDOR WINNERS & FINALISTS

Congratulations to all of the finalists and winners this year!

All the work this year (except for the three venue categories) were judged and scored by our three judges; Gunther Schubert the owner and editor of Mooi Troues, Ettienne Jansen the project manager at Wedding Album magazine and Gaby Frescura the owner and editor of South Bound Bride.

Taking the courageous step to submit your work for scrutiny is something you should be proud of. Winning in your category is fantastic achievement and a wonderful honor, especially among such great competition. It would be a hollow victory without the excellent work of your fellow participants and just by participating in the awards and showcasing your work alongside the best work of other vendors - your reputations can be collectively enhanced.

We always want our participants to take full advantage of our platform and what it offers. Use it as a marketing opportunity to shout from the rooftop how good your work is.

TopVendor has always been about providing recognition to ALL of our participants, for people across the country to see your name and the work that you do and most importantly promoting relationships between wedding vendors.
