The Edgeworth Suite at the Annebrook House Hotel was all abuzz last Wednesday evening at the official registration event for the Dream Wedding Giveaway, in conjunction with the Westmeath Examiner. The event, which has seen unprecedented interest from couples, gave participants the chance to talk to wedding specialists, and experience the warm welcome the Annebrook house hotel has to offer.
Set against the backdrop of soft lighting, fresh flowers and a definite air of romance, it gave a sneak preview into what the winning couple can expect on their big day – a stunning wedding to the value of €13,000!
As proprietor of Westmeath’s best wedding venue 2013, Berty Dunne of the Annebrook House Hotel said he was delighted to be working alongside the Westmeath Examiner to offer this prize. “I’ve been chatting with couples throughout the evening and it’s very clear that love is very much in the air!”
“We’ve had a huge response to this competition and we are delighted with the turnout. It’s a fantastic prize and it looks like this year it is going to be bigger than it was in previous years. “Here in the Annebrook we’re seeing a huge upturn in weddings, both this year and looking ahead to 2015, we have double the numbers. We pride ourselves on service, quality and price and winning best wedding venue of the year 2013 in Westmeath is testament to this. “We are delighted with the honour and it’s down to all our staff, who make a concerted effort to give couples a day to remember.”
Speaking about what sets the Annebrook House Hotel apart from other wedding venues, Berty said the setting of the 200-year-old Georgian House is a big draw, as well as the intimate style of service on offer. “We have the Old House restaurant for more intimate weddings, but if you have a bigger number, the Edgeworth Suite also offers restaurant service, as opposed to the huge function room style service,” said Berty.
The variety of wedding packages on offer is another big draw, according to the Annebrook’s dedicated wedding planner, Adele Speer. “We have a range of packages to suit everyone, no matter what their budget. From boutique style weddings in our restaurant, to the Edgeworth Suite, which holds up to 250 people, we can also host civil ceremonies in the Barlow Room. No matter what we will make sure you have a perfect day like it should be, and make it a day to remember,” said Adele.
