Why did you choose Newpark Hotel for your wedding?

The moment you walk through the door the hotel is beautiful and the staff look after the guests so well. We also knew of the fantastic reputation newpark have especially for food.

My sister got married in the Newpark 10 years ago. I have always enjoyed weddings/events in the Newpark Hotel and have always found the staff to be very courteous and professional. The Newpark is always so well presented and really make a huge effort a Christmas-The décor is amazing hence why we booked our wedding for the Newpark at Christmas time-So festive!. 

What is your top tip for newly engaged couples?

Enjoy this special time and don’t get too stressed about it. Everything will work out on the day! Once you’re married you will be wishing you could of done it all over again so make the most of this time now!

Did you have any supplier who went above and beyond what you expected? 

  The Newpark Hotel staff on the day were amazing. Many of the guests have come to me since the wedding complimenting them. All of the staff couldn’t have done enough to assist the guests throughout the day. From porters to waiters/waitresses, receptionists and managers-we can’t thank them enough.  We had Sinead Fortune as our wedding coordinator. Sinead was so professional and we felt at ease immediately after meeting her.  She even helped James with his speech to which he was so grateful! !!We cannot wait to enjoy the next wedding we have in the Newpark Hotel-promise we won’t compare

I loved the time we had together travelling from the church to hotel, getting our alone photos done and walking into the ballroom with everyone there cheering for us

Not one thing, everything ran so smoothly. I only wish that the day hadn’t of went so quick 

        Did you have any supplier who went above and beyond what you expected?

Everyone was amazing. We were planning all of this from Australia so there were a lot of emails going back and forth. Everyone was so patient, especially Sinead as I had one million questions at one stage. Alan Magner Photography kept everything running along smoothly, he had us at the hotel on time. Yvonne Maher Make up was all hands on deck that morning, not only with make up but was tiding up, showing my dad how to had me over to Gary after walking me up the aisle, she took lots of photos for us and even strapped in our 10 month old daughter into the car for us

 

 

Mary & Niall- Friday 4th January 2019 

           How did you meet?

We met on a night out in Waterford for a mutual friend’s birthday. It wasn’t love at first sight ( or second or third!) but after a slow start we accelerated dramatically and were married within 22 months.. 

           Tell us about how you got engaged

I moved in with him and told him my daddy wouldn’t be impressed with us living in sin!! 

              What is the most romantic gesture he/ she has made?

We’re not really hearts and flowers romantic but Niall puts my name on a Horeswood GAA club lotto ticket every week, I only found this out recently

 Why did you choose Newpark Hotel for your wedding day?

I had never been to a wedding at the Newpark but Niall had and was very impressed. He’s not easily impressed. Once we went to see it, no where else came close. The new terrace really swung it for me. We’re both so glad we chose the Newpark, the effort and attention to detail was second to none, we were looked after so well and had a ball..
