winners of weddingsonline Awards 2014!

The weddingsonline Awards 2014 were announced last night at a glamorous black tie ceremony in the stylish surroundings of Clontarf Castle.

The winners of 34 hard fought categories for Ireland’s most prestigious annual wedding awards were announced on the night, creating a buzz of anticipation and much friendly rivalry between the hundreds of guests representing the country’s finest wedding businesses and services.

Kerry-based Elaine Kennedy Photography and Harvey’s Point, the luxurious hotel in Donegal, who took this prize for the third year in a row, were the two overall winners of the 5th annual weddingsonline Awards 2014.

Over 31,000 brides and grooms nationwide voted for their top suppliers and venues in a wide range of categories, who were then judged by a panel of expert industry specialists. Judges this year were former owner of award winning bridal boutique White Orchid, Alex Reilly who has produced some of Ireland’s most popular programmes such as Runaway Bride and The Voice of Ireland, Ireland’s leading sales and communication skills expert Mark Richardson, who is also the founder of, Krishna De, CEO of BizGrowthMedia and Digital Marketing Guru and Ken Fitzpatrick, CEO of the Digital Marketing Institute, who has 13 years’ experience in leadership positions in the digital sector.

The categories in the weddingsonline Awards 2014 cover every possible service offered to brides and grooms around the country, from music and flowers, to venues and videographers.

“The annual weddingsonline Awards have become the industry standard, crucial in recognising the professionalism, achievements and excellent service given by the Irish wedding industry,” said Peter Bryans, MD of weddingsonline Ltd., speaking after the awards ceremony. “I know that all the participants, both nominees and winners alike, are proud and happy that their hard work and dedication has been acknowledged by subscribers to weddingsonline, and so they should be, as those are the votes that really matter.”
