Kerry Wedding Show 2015

IMG_0567So our year is well and truly driving at full speed ahead after Sunday’s Kerry Wedding Show. With over 70 exhibitors it was the perfect place for any couple to book their wedding suppliers and grab fantastic deals!

This year I was honoured to be sponsoring a free wedding photography package for one lucky couple in association with Radio Kerry and Brides of Kerry Wedding Magazine.

Hundred’s of entrants from all over the county and from as far away as Cork and Limerick 😉 sent in their entries via email and Facebook.

The idea was to send in a photograph of yourself and spouse and your wedding date. The winner was then chosen by a panel of judges at the show. Thankfully I didn’t have that difficult task as I wanted everyone to win!!!

The winning couple chosen were Karen O’Mahony and her partner Anthony Lane who are getting married this December. I believe Karen was so excited that she cried and to me that means the world. If we could all take time out of our lives to give someone a gift that makes them so happy they cry, the world would be a better place! 🙂

So when Karen eventually gets over the shock, we will be busy planning her day with her looking forward to photographing a very special wedding. When the wedding and honeymoon is over, the excitement still doesn’t end, Karen and Anthony also get a fantastic double page feature of their wedding in Brides of Kerry Magazine! So I can understand why Karen was crying, it really is an amazing prize to win 🙂 🙂 🙂

For any of you brides reading this, Brides of Kerry is a must have! It is full of tons of tips, ideas, real wedding inspiration and generally everything you need to help plan your day. So if you weren’t at the wedding fair and got your hands on a free copy, I would recommend you get out to the shops and grab one before they are all sold out!

So before I get back to today’s editing, I would just like to say CONGRATS again to Karen and Anthony, WE CAN’T WAIT TO SHOOT YOUR WEDDING 🙂

Also a massive THANK YOU to Melanie O’Sullivan from Radio Kerry. Melanie is amazing, she works incredibly hard behind the scenes and every year manages to organise a fantastic event which is a must for all brides and grooms! We are already planning and looking forward to next year’s Kerry Wedding Show!

April Drew from Brides of Kerry, it was a pleasure working with you and thank you for calming my nerves before our radio interview (I will get over that fear this year lol!).

To my husband Dave, you survived your first wedding fair and thank you so much I couldn’t have done it without you!!! xxx

Finally to all of you who stopped by to look at our work and for a chat, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you and to those of you who booked on the day… let the excitement begin as we start our journey together!!! 🙂
