The red carpet will be rolled out at the Hardiman on Eyre Square for an exclusive wedding event with a difference on Sunday, 20 August from 12pm to 3pm.

Sara Kennedy, the creative force behind the hugely popular Irish Wedding Blog, will host a Q&A session and share her vast knowledge and experience on all things relating to weddings.

After the Q&A, a panel of wedding experts will hold an open discussion on all topics such as wedding trends, plus tips and tricks to help brides and grooms to plan their big day.

The experts include Rev Geraldine Bown, an ordained inter-faith Minister; Brianán McCartney, The Hardiman Wedding Co-ordinator; Vanessa & Brenda, Swiftly Yours Wedding Content Creators, and Michelle Burke, owner of Vintage Pearl Bridal Boutique.

“More people than ever may be planning weddings, but each and every one of these very special occasions at The Hardiman, is uniquely and meticulously planned, the hotel’s senior wedding coordinator,” Brianán McCartney said.

“Planning a wedding should be an exciting adventure, rather than a chore.  So, our experienced team at The Hardiman take care of the details, before and during the celebration, while the bridal party relish every moment of their special day.”

Statistics show that 23,173 marriages were celebrated in Ireland last year, even exceeding the pre-pandemic figures of 2019, by 14%.

The event is FREE to attend, but places are limited and can be secured by emailing or tickets can be reserved on, which is on The Hardiman website.

Afternoon tea can be booked to make an occasion of it for a special rate of €28 per person.

Wedding packages at The Hardiman start from €76.00pp, and custom-made wedding experiences can also be developed for the engaged couple.
