More than 170 wedding experts from across Ireland were in attendance. Finalists enjoyed a cocktail reception, three-course meal, music by the larger than life Manouche Swing, not to mention the nail-biting excitement of the actual awards ceremony itself.

The standard of wedding businesses increases year on year and we at Wedding Journal are always blown away by the calibre of products and services being offered to couples across the country, however there could only be one winner in each category.
