Wedding Showcase at Fota Island Resort

September 21, 2010

This morning I received an email from Weddings Online about a Wedding Showcase taking place at Fota Island Resort, Cork this weekend which may interest some of you.

The event takes place this Sunday, 26th September 2010 from 11am to 7pm, details as per the press release below:
“Say “I do” to the wonderful Wedding Showcase at Fota Island Resort, 11am – 7pm Sunday 26th September, 2010.

Forget pre-wedding jitters the night before the ceremony. For most brides (and grooms) in-waiting the most stressful part of their upcoming nuptials is where on earth to start with organising the big celebration! This month allow Fota Island Resort to inspire, entertain and excite you with the return of its highly anticipated Wedding Showcase.
An invaluable resource for those tying the knot, this year’s showcase takes place on the 26th September and will present every possible service and suggestion for your big day.

The finest photographers, stationers, wedding planners, make-up artists, bakers, jewellers, department stores, travel agents and musicians will gather together and showcase their top services designed to create the perfect wedding day.

All of this will take place in the stunning surroundings of Fota Island Hotel which will be dressed for a glamorous and stylish wedding – the stuff of every bride’s fantasy. The Smith Barry Suite, luxurious bedrooms, deluxe suites and lodges will all be available to view, allowing you to picture every aspect of your wedding day.

The Resort’s friendly team will also be on hand to with banqueting, events and sale staff ready to show you around and answer any questions you may have, while delicious canapés, starters, main courses and desserts for you to sample will keep your strength up.

A luxury limo or vintage car will then whisk you away to view The Clubhouse, an extremely creative conversion of old stone farm buildings that provides an intimate alternative setting for a wedding reception.

For those attending the Cork Mini Marathon on the same day, don’t despair you won’t be missing out. For those interested in attending both events, Fota Island Resort has not only extended the Wedding Showcase’s hours until 7pm but it will also be hosting a special warm-up session with parking at the resort and coach transfers in and out of the mini marathon. Anyone interested in this service will need to register via phone or the website (see details below).

If the Wedding Showcase leaves you hungry for even more bridal browsing this year’s Fota Island Wedding Forum will take place on Thursday 2nd December. The popular event will play host to Ireland’s biggest and brightest beauty experts, boutique owners, travel advisors and more, all brought together for an interactive forum where you can see the experts at work and ask specific questions of some of the country’s most experienced specialists in their field. Last year’s star-studded line up included Lorraine Keane, beauty editor of the Irish Times, Phyl Clarke and the dashing Leonard Daly of Queen Beauty Emporium.

For further information on any of the events visit or contact Fota Island Resort on 021 467 3000.”
