About Bride of the Year

Bride of the Year 2018

A Tribute to all Australian Brides

True Bride is a tribute to all Australian brides and home to the Bride of the Year competition. True Bride launched our first ever national Bride of the Year competition in 2001. The 2018 Bride of the Year competition, is our eighteenth national Bride of the Year competition. It's our way of saying thank you and helping make your wedding day last just that little bit longer. Giving you the opportunity to share your day with others, allowing the memory to live on.

Our entire site is dedicated to real Australian brides and their weddings. No glamorous models, no fancy location shoots, no fabrication, but a dedication to "True Brides". They share with you their romance, their wedding dreams and importantly their wedding day. Browse through our site and you will see real life images of beautiful brides, their gowns, their make up, their photos and their 'wedding day'.
