As guests made their way through of fantastic facilities and talked to the 52 wedding suppliers, they were treated to free pizza, ice cream and choice food samples, as well as samples our very own pastry chef truly scrumptious Rachid’s chocolates.

Waiting to transport guests from our Luxury Cork hotel to our fantastic golf clubhouse, which offers a uniquely different setting for intimate weddings was a collection of wonderful vintage and classic cars, all decorated with ribbons and each with its dressed to impress chauffer, and once inside our Cork Golf Club House, guests were treated to a complimentary tea or coffee and a homemade cake.Miss Cork at Fota Island Resort Wedding Showcase in Cork

Making a surprise appearance was the newly elected Miss Cork, who had only been awarded the titles the night before and a selection of models from Pulse Models, who were dressed in some of the supplier’s amazing collections.

A fantastic day all round, everyone involved, whether guest, supplier or staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves and for us here at Fota Island Resort it was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to meet so many blushing brides-to-be.
