A newly engaged couple were ecstatic on Sunday last as they won a €10,000 wedding prize giveaway at the Heights Hotel.

Local couple Marguerite O’Callaghan and Diarmuid Buckley, who just got engaged three weeks previously, had just popped along by chance to the annual Wedding Showcase hosted by the hotel – and were stunned to learn that they were the winners. They were presented with their prize by Wedding Manager Natalie Bader.

Hundreds came through the hotel’s doors as eager couples came to see 30 exhibitors on the day including flowers, wine, cakes, vouchers, Susan Whelan, Marketing Assistant with the Height Hotel explained.

“It was a great turnout,” Susan told the Killarney Advertiser. “We had a couple of hundred through the doors.”

She added that Orla Diffily of RTE fame presented the latest in wedding fashions from local and internationally acclaimed fashion designers such as Carol Kennelly Milliner and House of Delphine, and Joanne Henderson Hair, Sandra Flynn make up and Tara O’Donoghue Photography offered fantastic prizes at the show too.

“Amongst the excitement Grace Foley provided a touch of serenity singing some beautiful ballads and Liam Sheehan kept the crowds entertained with his illusions and magic. It was nice to have them on board.”
