WeddingDates Celebrates 10 Years with a new brand and party
Party time at the Maryborough’s Orangery
New Brand Identity launched
Cork 17th September 2018 - WeddingDates, the go-to platform for Wedding Venues, Suppliers and Newly Engaged Couples, is celebrating 10 years in business.

To mark this big milestone in the company’s life, they are throwing a party for clients and friends in the wonderful Orangery of the Maryborough Hotel, Cork on October 5th.

‘This is a really big year for us here at WeddingDates as we are celebrating 10 years! What better way to mark this than to throw a party. The Maryborough was the perfect venue choice for us as they are one of our first clients and are with us since we started in 2008’, according to CEO & Founder, Ciara Crossan. Guests will be treated to signature cocktails, tasty delights and music from the wonderfully talented Gemma Sugrue. WeddingDates plan to present its longstanding clients with specially commissioned plaques on the night for their ongoing support.

WeddingDates will also take this opportunity to launch its brand-new look at the party, having undergone a brand redesign with Cork Agency Chapter lead by Deirdre Corcoran.  ‘This new brand and website really marks the next stage in our development as a business as we look at further developing our position in the UK and beyond to other English speaking countries’, according to Ciara. A new website will be on stream later in the year with the aim of creating a more community-based feel where couples can get all their wedding inspiration and practical help in one spot.

Having started out in The Rubicon Center in CIT, the company now has a team of 11, the majority of whom are based in the Airport East Business & Technology Park. With clients in both Ireland and the UK, it has 3 UK-based sales managers and one in Ireland.  WeddingDates now has over 700 venue clients and 2000 wedding suppliers listed on the site. The company has gone from strength to strength over the past 10 years and is undoubtedly a cork business success story.
