26 Jan Winners Announced: Australia’s Top Wedding Videographer 2023
The best wedding is one that is meaningful and special to the couple getting married. It can be a small, intimate affair or a big, grand celebration. Depending on the couple’s preferences, culture, and traditions, the wedding functions are personalized by the couple or their family members. The main objective is to show the couple’s personalities, their vision, and their love story through traditions.
It should also be well organized and run smoothly, with a good balance of fun, romance, and emotional moments. All the guests should have a great time, feel included, and celebrate the love of the couple.
Lately, this month Australian wedding awards were organized at a gala event at the renowned Hyatt Regency Sydney. In total, there were around 50 categories of which 10 awards were won by Western Australian businesses, including the most prominent and competitive categories.
Perth’s S2V Studio has recently achieved significant recognition at the state level, taking home the winning award in wedding videographer and the highly recommended in the wedding photography category. Furthermore, S2V Studio has also been honored with a wedding videography award on the national level in Australian wedding awards, solidifying its reputation as a leading wedding videographer in the industry.
Founder of S2V Studio, Sukh Singh Verka, said in an exhilarated manner, “It is an honor to be recognized for our passion for capturing and telling the unique love stories of our clients with care and attention to detail. At S2V Studio, our vision, “Your Story, Our Passion” reflects our belief in the importance of preserving each client’s special moments and bringing them to life through the lens of our cameras.”
In Celebrant Category, The top prize was grabbed by Kardinya’s Candice Bydder, of Celebrations by Candice. She was selected among the 27 marriage celebrant finalists.
“It goes to show that Western Australia is really punching above its weight when it comes to the wedding industry here. The constant cheers from the WA tables became a bit of a running joke on the night,” Mrs. Bydder said.
“That’s one thing that defines our industry here, a sense of camaraderie and teamwork. It’s common to see vendors in a sort of huddle before a wedding – celebrants, videographers, photographers, stylists, and the like, all swapping notes to make sure we’re all on the same page.”

Champagne Agency, which is a popular wedding musician, also won a trophy in the list of accolades.
“Collectively, our musicians have been a finalist on The Voice, won a Logie award, supported famous musicians at Perth concerts, played at the Brownlow Medal, won an international songwriting competition, had over a million plays on Spotify, charted and toured internationally, had over a million plays on YouTube, been on rotation on Triple J, been flown on billionaire jets for private concerts, and played at celebrity weddings!”
The agency, led by Reilly Craig of Willagee and Ezereve of Lower Chittering, said awards like these help to “to secure bookings and generate income for talented artists”.
