If saying 'I Do' in Ireland is on your agenda - it's time to familiarize yourself with the winners of the 2018 Irish Wedding Awards.
Without the help of wedding planners or event experts, it can be extremely difficult to plan ahead if your big day is taking place in another country.
Alas thanks to social media, it has never been easier to find reliable businesses, who can ensure your nuptials run smoothly.
Events and communications agency Creative Oceanic hosted the second annual awards ceremony recently, recognizing leaders in the Irish wedding industry.
If you're planning a destination celebration, look no further than their comprehensive list of outstanding services - from cars to curls, and florists to food suppliers.

We are creating, designing and getting ready for all our weddings this season. We still have a couple of dates left in 2018, so if you want to create a stunning environment, designed especially for you both, that you and your guests can create all those memories in? Then we would love to have the chats with you and maybe show your around our 5000ft creative hub? If this is for you, then pop over to our website frogprince.ie and book a call with our designers or an appointment for our studio. We really do love working in all types of spaces from Hotels and Private Venues to my own personal favourite, a Marquee in the garden - it just gets me ever time. You really can’t beat a wedding at home, especially if your lucky enough to have a garden with the space. It can be challenging, but I think challenges make it unique and bring the magic 🌿✨🌿✨🌿 we are all about creating the magic ✨
