There was big success for local wedding suppliers last night (Monday, February 17) at the renowned weddingsonline Awards with three Louth-based nominees walking away as winners.
The weddingsonline Awards, which took place at the Knightsbrook Hotel in Trim, Co. Meath, bring together wedding suppliers from across the country to recognise and celebrate the very best services in the Irish wedding industry.
Amongst the winners on the night was Ardee-based makeup artist Sinead McMahon, who scooped the award for ‘Makeup Artist of the Year’ at the glitzy black-tie event. Sinead, who has been a freelance makeup artist for over 13 years, beat 11 other finalists to the hotly contested title.
Elsewhere, two of Louth’s most popular wedding venues were recognised for outstanding service as The Four Seasons Hotel Carlingford’s Linda Scott made it a double success for the Wee County by picking up the gong for ‘Venue Co-ordinator of the Year – Leinster’.
Rounding off a great night for local suppliers was Darver Castle. The stunning castle, which dates back to the 15th century, was presented with the award for ‘Castle Venue of the Year’ on the night, pipping the likes of Cabra Castle, Clontarf Castle and Meath based venue, Dunboyne Castle.
“The weddingsonline Awards recognise the professionalism, dedication, exceptional service and all-round excellence of wedding venues and suppliers made more special in that it comes on the 20th anniversary of weddingsonline,” says Jonathan Bryans, Commercial Director for weddingsonline.
“The awards present a rigorous examination of wedding suppliers and venues and we are thankful to our independent team of judges for their dedication and hard work. We trust that it will be the springboard to more success for all”.

The weddingsonline Awards subsequently launched in 2008 and have since become a permanent annual fixture in the wedding industry.
