WINNER’S COMPENDIUM - 2014 | ABOUT CWIA


The Canadian Wedding Industry Awards organization was founded to provide a national, impartial platform to distinguish and honour the exceptional talent found within Canada’s vibrant wedding and events industry. Weddings have always been an important part of Canada’s social and cultural fibre, but they have also become a vital part of Canada’s artistic and business communities. The Canadian Wedding Industry Awards honours and awards the remarkable professionals who represent multiple creative and technical disciplines from Coast to Coast. The goal of the organization is to elevate Canada’s wedding professionals on a world-class level and give them a meaningful, legitimate forum from which to be recognized for their professional achievements on a national stage.
