This weekend sees yet another team of Sunset Staff visiting Dublin! Claire, our onsite Wedding Coordinator and Miguel, our Operations Manager will be attending the Bride of the Year Show held at Dublin’s RDS Exhibition Centre. If you would like to visit them, the show is open from 11:30am Saturday and Sunday and you can find them on Stand nº E24 (Sunset Beach Club).
I’ve only just got around to uploading my pictures from my recent trip to Dublin! As I had mentioned on an earlier post that this was my first trip to Ireland and I am pleased to say I had a great time there, working hard on our stand at the Wedding Journal Show all weekend and meeting lots of friendly locals. Although the weather wasn’t great, at least I managed to avoid the snow! The show was held at the Citywest Convention centre and there was a great turn out, with lots of interest in getting married here in Spain. My colleagues, Miguel and Claire will be in Dublin again this weekend at the Bride of the Year Show, so if you’re in the area, be sure to visit them at the RDS!
The first English speaking wedding show on the Costa del Sol took place last weekend. The Perfect Wedding Expo was held at the Palacio de la Paz in the Fuengirola fairground. It was the first wedding fair I have attended and I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the great turn-out of both exhibitors and visitors. There were suppliers present for everything from delicious chcoolate fountains, beautiful wedding dress and evening gown designs to diamonds and jewellery as well as florists, planners and photographers, making it the one stop shop for any bride to be, planning their wedding on the coast. Myself, Claire – our wedding co ordinator and Kerry – our wedding planner looked after the Sunset Beach Club stand, click here to take a look at our stand!
