Weddingsonline 2011 Awards

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Last year, we were the proud winners of the Munster Wedding Venue of the Year Award and were really pleased to be shortlisted for the award again this year. Unfortunately, we didn’t win but being shortlisted again hopefully shows that we are maintaining our standards and that we are still very popular with brides and grooms. In fact we consistently receive fantastic feedback on our food and service, and our beautiful Banqueting Suite and professionalism. We always strive to make improvements where we can and to exceed our brides and grooms’ expectations.

 At this year’s awards, Tom Meagher, our wedding co-ordinator, was also shortlisted for the National wedding co-ordinator of the year award. Tom didn’t win but he was the only co-ordinator from a Kerry Hotel to be short-listed, so something to be proud of! Tom also surprised a few people by showing off his rather unique moves on the dance floor, after the awards ceremony. Ask him for a little demo if you meet him!

 Tom, together with our Sales Manager Sue Ryan, attended the Wedding Conference prior to the awards night and picked up some great tips on, amongst other things, how to connect more with brides and grooms via social networking. They also learnt a little about the latest wedding trends; apparently Honeysuckle is the all-important colour for 2011 and decorative name cards are making a comeback!

 If we are interested in talking to us about your wedding; call Sue on 064 66 79333 or e mail sue@kenmarebayhotel.com to arrange a meeting and a viewing of the hotel. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much we care about your wedding at the Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort.
