The Brehon is Highly Commended at The Weddingsonline Awards 2017
The Brehon is one of Ireland’s top wedding venues having recently scooped a commendation at the Weddingsonline Awards 2017.
The commendation for Best Wedding Venue in Munster was announced at a glitzy black tie gala ceremony in Clontarf Castle on Monday night, hosted by actress and Dancing with the Stars contestant Aoibhín Garrihy and sponsored by wedding planning software Moposa.
Over 30,000 couples voted for their favourite suppliers and venues in a range of categories, which were then judged by a panel of digital marketing professionals and wedding industry experts. The judges this year were Sara Kennedy, sales and marketing specialist and wedding blogger for IrishWeddingBlog.ie, Mark Richardson, Ireland’s leading sales and communication skills expert, Ciamh McCrory, digital and communications guru and Laura Holland, Entertainment Editor for Her.ie.
The 33 categories in the Weddingsonline Awards included a range of wedding services offered to engaged couples nationwide, from venues to bands, to stationery and photographers. The country’s top wedding businesses and services gathered at the much anticipated event to celebrate the winners.
“We would like to thank everyone that voted for us and of course the panel of judges,” said Kelly Ann, Wedding Co-Coordinator at The Brehon, “The standards at this level are incredibly high and we delighted to be recognised as one of best wedding venues in Ireland.”
