Gorey still a top destination for weddings
THE popularity of Gorey as a location for weddings shows no sign of slowing down.
Many couples recently travelled from neighbouring counties to attend the Autumn wedding afternoon in the Amber Springs Hotel to see the venue, meet suppliers, and pick up tips and ideas for their big day. More than 15 exhibitors were present on the day.
Wedding and events co-ordinator Deborah Stewart said that she and the wedding team were overwhelmed to see so many enthusiastic couples on the day.
‘The wedding afternoon is a very important event at the hotel,’ added general manager Eibhear Coyle. ‘Weeks of hard work go into it so it was really great to see a return. We were delighted to see so many familiar faces on the day.’
‘There were also some previous brides in attendance returning with siblings and friends,’ he added. ‘Word of mouth is such powerful thing. We are so grateful for it and it goes so show we are doing things right and delivering a quality product to our couples’.
The visitors got the chance to speak to the various exhibitors, and to see the hotel’s private wedding entrance, ballroom and several guest rooms including the honeymoon suite, which had just been fully refurbished in time for the showcase. There was also great interest in the new family suites which are launching very soon.
Eibhear said they received many confirmed bookings on the day and many since.
