What an action packed night it was at our annual Wedding Journal Reader Awards, which took place earlier tonight in the glamorous Gibson Hotel, Dublin.

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.
