Wedding Online Awards 2024

The Weddings Online Awards 2024 finalists have been announced recently. After two weeks and thousands of votes, the finalists for the most prestigious wedding awards in the country have been announced. This is a huge achievement for any wedding industry professional to make it this far! To be called a finalist is an incredible honour.
The event is organised by Weddings Online but voted for by wedding couples who wanted to show their appreciation to their favourite hotels, venue and wedding suppliers across the country.

The Ardilaun Hotel are delighted to announce that their wedding co-ordinator Zara Kelly has made it to the finals of the Venue Co-ordinator of the Year for Connaught category for a second year in a row so next year could be her year. Zara will find out if she will be crowned winner and take the trophy home at the elegant Awards gala ceremony taking place in March 2024 in Kilkenny.

In the meantime, Zara has been working on an online submission containing samples of her work and reviews, based on real wedding experience. This will be judged by the Weddings Online Awards expert panel of independent judges, who will then determine a winner! The winners will be representing many people and companies from the country’s wedding industry sector that work hard to provide memorable experiences for their couples.

As Conor Flynn, General Manager of The Ardilaun Hotel says ” We are delighted that our colleague Zara Kelly is a finalist for the Weddings Online Awards and it is testament to her and the whole wedding team of the good work being done on a daily basis in the hotel to serve our customers well, as I meet and talk with our wedding couples regularly and I value their opinions that the feedback is so positive about our staff. We are among the best suppliers nationally represented at the Weddings Online Awards 2024 so wish everybody well in the final!”

There are professionals who have dedicated their whole career in creating memories and experiences that will stay with their wedding couples forever. These are the people that Weddings Online Awards try to showcase and give the recognition they deserve. The awards provide a platform to thank those who have contributed to making Ireland a great place for getting married in and give to the small and medium enterprises the exposure they need to expand their business in this competitive sector. The Ardilaun are delighted to be part of this industry having hosted many weddings and family celebrations over the past 60 plus years. 

For any newly engaged couples looking for their dream wedding venue, please contact Zara and wedding team to book your wedding showaround and you will also have a chance to meet Zara at the Dream Wedding Expo in Leisureland on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th January 2024.
