COUPLES SET SAIL FOR KINSALE FOR UNIQUE WEDDING SHOWCASE

Betrothed couples are set to flock to Kinsale on Sunday June 26th for the ‘Kinsale Wedding Showcase’; the only town wide wedding exhibition in the country.

Forgoing the usual Wedding Fayre events, the business community in Kinsale has joined together to promote each of their wedding services and supplies over one day, offering a one stop destination for couples considering a wedding in Ireland’s gourmet capital.

Those opening their doors to the public on the day will include Kinsale’s top 5 romantic wedding venues - Actons Hotel, The Carlton Hotel, The Trident Hotel, The Blue Haven and Ballinacurra House. Wedding coordinators and chefs will be on hand at each venue to take couples through the wealth of amenities, gourmet food and services that couples can enjoy by celebrating their big day in Kinsale. Wedding suppliers will also exhibit at the venues offering the best choice, convenience and range to suit any budget.

Every couple that visits on the day will receive a special ‘Kinsale Wedding Chequebook’, offering exclusive discounts and special offers on wedding related services and supplies throughout the town.

Couples will also have the opportunity to see for themselves the unique scenery and amenities that have made Kinsale one of Ireland’s most romantic destinations. Stunning photogenic locations such as Charlesfort, the Marina, local beaches and even the quaint winding streets themselves offer an incredible choice of backdrop for those memorable wedding portraits.

Commenting on the event, Kinsale Chamber of Tourism Chairman Hal McElroy said “This is the second year that we will host the Kinsale Wedding Showcase, which we are delighted to say is significantly bigger and better this time around. It is a unique event in that we have businesses that are more used to competing with each other coming together as a group to promote Kinsale generally as a wedding destination. As a chamber we recognise the power of working together for the greater good of the town and this was evident with the success of last year’s event which resulted in over 20 wedding bookings on the day.

We hope to build on that success this year by offering even greater choice and value for potential wedding parties. The advantage of this type of event is that it not only helps our members but is also hugely convenient for couples, who can plan an afternoon of wedding research and coordination while also enjoying superb one off deals and discounts” he added.

The Kinsale Wedding Showcase will take place from 2pm-5pm on Sunday June 26th. Couples can register at each of the five wedding venues where they will then be conveniently guided to other venues to sample the other wedding showcases taking place around the town.
