What an amazing day we had at our Wedding Expo 2024! Our special guest celebrity Lorraine Keane looked absolutely stunning in a designer raspberry red dress and was a fountain of useful advice and tips for all our brides-to-be.
50 of our favourite wedding suppliers showcased their talents and wares at their stands which all looked gorgeous. Wedding couples were able to see and book everything they needed for their big day from photographers and videographers to flowers, entertainment and make up.
Prospective couples took the opportunity to find out everything the Ocean Sands has to offer and take a tour of the function rooms and of course the fabulous bridal suite too.
The main stage was busy all afternoon with a series of fascinating presentations on everything to do with weddings, MC’d by our very own Bridget. Rory from Weddings Online was an incredible source of information. Photographer Richard McCarthy took up a new role as moderator in a fascinating panel discussion including fashion blogger Laura Nash, Civil wedding celebrant Enda Harte and Eilish Egan from VIP Weddings. Two amazing dance companies had everyone’s toes tapping with scintillating Irish dancing including the famous brush dances. Thanks so much to Laura Ganley and Bróga Brómhar Dance School.
Last on stage was Lorraine Keane and our Wedding Co-Ordinator Olivia. Lorraine was incredibly generous with her advice – all of which was aimed at helping couples keep their feet on the ground and within budget while having the best day of their lives. Recently married make up artist Selina G shared stories about her very special day, and both were quite frank about things that didn’t quite go right! Neither were at all fazed by wedding cars not turning up or the chosen colours of wedding flowers being lost in translation – the hiccups just became part of the story of the best day of their lives.
If you’re planning a wedding, please get in touch. We have a very limited number of dates available for 2024 and more choice for 2025. We’d love to hear from you.
