This year’s hotly anticipated WeddingsOnline.ie 2013 Awards were announced at a glamorous ceremony held at a gala dinner in the stylish surroundings of Clontarf Castle on Monday February 18.

With 34 hard fought categories having the winners announced on the night, there was much friendly competition between guests representing the country’s finest wedding businesses and services.

Over 28,000 brides and grooms nationwide voted for their top suppliers and venues in a wide range of categories, who were then judged by a panel of expert industry specialists, with decisions based on quality of work and a real wedding experience.
