Award Winning Weddings With Aquava Boutique Catering

Confidently carving out a sterling reputation in the Whitsunday wedding industry for the past decade, this year was the first time Aquava Boutique Catering embarked on an awards journey, and they started right at the top!

The highly regarded wedding caterers brought home the Gold Award in the Independent Wedding Caterers category at the Australian Bridal Industry Association (ABIA) Awards which were held in Brisbane earlier this month.

The winners are measured by reviews and ratings from over 30,000 newlyweds each year and are determined by a combination of excellence in four factors: quality of product, quality of service, attitude of staff and overall value.

Aquava Boutique Catering is owned and operated by local couple, Sophie and Todd Jordan who pride themselves on their unwavering commitment to providing high-quality culinary experiences.

“Winning the award was an incredible moment for the entire team,” said Sophie and Todd.

“The sheer joy and pride were evident, marking a significant acknowledgment of our collective efforts, dedication, and passion.

“This recognition serves as a motivational boost, reinforcing our commitment to excellence and fuelling our enthusiasm for future endeavours.”

Embracing innovation and staying ahead of culinary trends, Aquava has become a sought-after and well-respected caterer, offering a range of services for almost any celebration, from weddings through to large scale events and intimate dining experiences.

With memorable menus, meticulous attention to detail, and personalised service Sophie says every element is guided by a collaborative effort that unites the strengths and passions of their highly skilled team.

“The dedication and collaboration within our team are pivotal,” they explained.

“Each team member contributes their unique talents to ensure a cohesive and quality catering service.

“We deeply appreciate the collective effort that makes our service possible.

“Our ongoing pursuit of excellence is guided by a humble acknowledgment of our strengths and areas for growth.

“We appreciate the recognition and remain committed to delivering exceptional catering experiences.”

“Our team is a close-knit group, and each member plays a vital role in our success.

“While it's challenging to single out one individual, we would like to express gratitude to every team member for their unwavering dedication, hard work, and commitment to excellence.”

Bringing the award home for both the business and broader Whitsunday Wedding Industry, the couple say they love working alongside so many other skilled industry professionals.

“The shared commitment to creating magical moments for couples is what makes the local Whitsunday wedding community so special,” shared Sophie and Todd.

“We look forward to continued collaboration, learning, and collectively raising the bar for the beautiful weddings we contribute to.”

“We would like to express our deep appreciation to our couples and clients for entrusting us with their special moments. Your feedback and support have been instrumental in shaping our services.

“Keep an eye out for upcoming updates as we strive to grow, innovate, and contribute to the dynamic events industry.”
