Our Round Up of Ultimate Weddings Live!

by Caroline@hitched

We were lucky enough to spend this weekend at Ultimate Weddings Live in Punchestown. We spent our time sipping sparkling wine, sampling some delicious wedding cakes and meeting some great suppliers and venues. All topped off with a fashion show featuring the latest gowns and some fantastic tips from wedding expert Franc. Take a look at just some of what we got up to...

If you are panicking about performing your wedding speech then consider something unique, we met the fantastic Cormac Lally from Be-Spoke who can work with your bridal party to write the perfect rhyming wedding speech. As well as working with you to create the speech, you will also get great tips and advice on how to perform the speech, taking away any last minute nerves.

Perhaps you are considering adding some vintage style to your day? Be-Spoke also offer a gramophone DJ service, with authentic gramophones playing some of the best swing, jazz and mambo tunes to accompany your reception drinks.

For a more traditional style of wedding music, Quantum could be perfect for your big day. This five-piece band can create a playlist to suit your day perfectly, playing songs from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and the current charts.

We then spoke with wedding photographer David Cavanagh and took a look at some of his gorgeous wedding photography – I really recommend the photo albums that are excellent quality and give you stunning and clear copies of your wedding pictures that show each and every detail.

Then we met the lovely Geraldine from Celbridge Manor Hotel, a beautiful Kildare wedding venue that can cater for up to 350 wedding guests and still just a short distance from Dublin city centre.

After this we were able to get our sugar fix as we met Suzanne Moloney from Cocoa Moiselle, their wedding cakes were spectacular and I couldn’t help but be drawn to the amazing birdcage style cake that is beautifully painted. Suzanne has a real talent!

One of the most beautiful stands was Moss & Mushroom who create stunning brooch bouquets. My magpie eyes were immediately drawn to a sparkling pearl and diamante design but there were also plenty of other beautiful options. Abi from our venues team even did her best bride impression with this stunning pearl bouquet!

If you are looking for a beautiful wedding venue with years of wedding planning experience then the team at The Lord Bagenal Inn in Carlow will be more than happy to help you, with 35 years of wedding planning experience they are pros at throwing the perfect wedding day.

We then took our seats to watch the fashion show with beautiful dresses from The Bridal Lounge, Tamem Michael, Edel Tuite Design, Fairy Godmothers Weddings and more while we enjoyed something sparkly from Black Tower. We thought we may have had a glass too many when we spotted an owl walking down the catwalk!
