On the 19th of June 2018, DJ:Plus! Entertainment was pleased to attend the Australian Bridal Industry Academy’s prestigious 9th National Designer of Dreams Awards at The Star on the Gold Coast.
Wedding providers from all over Australia came together to celebrate excellence in the industry and it was such an honour to sit in a room with the best of the best and witness their achievements, hear their struggles and challenges and share ways of making each and every couple’s wedding day the best it can be.
To be a finalist in these awards is a great achievement in itself! Over the preceding 4 years, 102,293 couples took the time to nominate & provide feedback on 3,712 wedding businesses in ABIA’s Four Pillars of Perfection: Quality of Product, Quality of Service, Value for Money & Attitude of Staff. It is these nominations & ratings which determined the 316 Finalists. To qualify as an ABIA Designer Of Dreams finalist or winner is very impressive as it represents on-going consistency in delivering high quality products and/or services which exceed customer expectations. All finalists have received exceptional ratings and feedback from their couples each year for the past 4 consecutive years.
DJ:Plus! Entertainment always strives to exceed expectations and set standards which others in the industry aspire to emulate and subsequently has been a finalist or winner in the ABIA Designer of Dreams Awards since its inception, which is an achievement in itself, especially in this day and age where wedding businesses often do not last more than a year or two.
My couples will always be the focus of what I do and the love that they share is considered so very precious by me, which is why I take the utmost care with their wedding day. I hope to be able to continue help create wedding memories for them, for some time yet!
There is nothing more profound than the strength and beauty of two hearts that love each other.
I am extremely thankful for the beautiful couples who invite me to take care of the celebration of the love they hold in their hearts. They invest their trust in me to give them the best celebration possible. I do not take this responsibility lightly and am so grateful that they decide that I am the person to help them create wonderful memories.
My sincerest thanks to each and every couple who has allowed me to contribute to making their wedding day special and then taking time to provide feedback to ABIA as well. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!!!!! ~ Serge

Entertainment which enhanced and enriched the industry, through their tireless pursuit of excellence in Designing the Dream for each and every one of their unique wedding couples.
On behalf of all the New South Wales couples who tied the knot over 2016/2017, we say thank you for the passion, pride and professionalism which you bring to the wedding industry and the assistance, advice and support which you bestow upon the future brides and grooms of New South Wales.
For the 16th consecutive year, DJ:Plus! Entertainment has been extremely proud and humbled to be nominated by the wonderful brides & grooms that decide to give me the ultimate privilege of placing their trust in me for their very special day. Looking back over these years, DJ:Plus! Entertainment is the only DJ to be a finalist or winner each year over this entire period (whilst MC services have always been provided, in the early days, it was not possible to be in two categories, but once again, has been in every year since possible). This on it’s own shows that the service delivered is consistently high and continuously being improved.
My couples mean the world to me and giving them the day of their dreams and a beautiful beginning to a life long loving marriage is what drives me. Their love for each other is the thing of the most importance. They allow me into their lives and permit me to get to know them a little better, they share their hopes and fears with me and in doing so they touch my heart and allows me to share the love amongst their family and friends and that makes me very happy!!
So it is with the sincerest gratitude and appreciation to all my couples who not only invest their trust in me and open their hearts, that they then take the time to provide feedback to ABIA as well. Thank you, it truly means the world to me!! ~ Serge
