There's no denying that there's an extensive selection of beautiful bridesmaid dresses around at the moment. We're really loving one collection in particular. One of the UK's most successful and independent fashion brands - Jenny Packham has joined forces with Dessy to bring you a stylish range of designer bridesmaid dresses at affordable price points. Luckily for you we have a local stockist of the Dessy and Packham ranges in Cork too - Diamond Bridal on Maylor Street.

It's fantastic for brides to now have a collection of versatile bridesmaid dresses available in a wide variety of colours, lengths and styles to suit all shapes, heights and skin tones. Jenny Packham's bridesmaid dresses also range from Size 00 to Size 30W, meaning that finding the perfect fit will never be a problem.
Your wedding invitations are the first glimpse your guests get into your wedding so make that first impression count. The most important thing to remember is that your wedding is all about you and your partner so it’s a good idea for your invitations to reflect your personalities.
Gone are the days of extravagant invites with layers of fancy paper, ribbons and lace… Now couples are choosing simple printed invitations that follow a theme that is close to their hearts. Think of special moments that you have spent together and what you love doing most. Maybe you love going for countryside walks… If so, then your invitations could incorporate a nature element.

It's been a busy few years in The Kingsley Hotel. We've celebrated in excess of one hundred weddings, rebuilding our reputation as one of Cork City's premier wedding destinations. One of the many ways I assist my couples is by keeping a close eye on trends. All trends can be tailored accordingly to suit a couple's style and budget. For couples getting married in 2019/2020, the wedding planning fun is just beginning. From flowers, to attire and decor, here are my expected trends for 2019/2020.
Anita Venczel, owner of Cakeland, is one of Cork's most talented bakers. From ruched icing and dripping beauty, to decadent damask stenciling and detailed finishes, her cakes are a feast for the senses in more ways than one.
Vintage charm, metallic finishes and hexagonal bases are all big trends for 2019. Take a look through this gorgeous gallery to see some of Anita's on trend baked creations.
When it comes to wedding decor, it can be a very confusing process for many couples. Pinterest boards can be crammed with lots of images but how many of them are actually practical or affordable?
According to Sandra Looney of To Have and To Hold, a large percentage of couples are choosing to hold the entire wedding at one venue (ceremony, drinks reception and main reception).
Number 58 Patrick Street - also known as Tom Murphy Menswear, is Cork’s most original tailoring house. Cork's finest gentlemen have been commissioning its tailors to produce garments of the highest quality since the 1840s.
When Tom Murphy Senior took over the business in the 1930s, he continued the tradition and the business became renowned for made-to-measure suiting and bespoke tailoring. The third generation of Murphy tailors have taken this ancient craft to new levels and blended it with a contemporary approach to ensure that the made to measure customer receives the best service possible.
