We did it!
September is widely recognised here on the Costa del Sol as the busiest Wedding month of the year. With kids going back to school, and in to the 4th month of blazing heat, everything turns up a notch as we begin to run around crazily preparing for all of our September Weddings.
This September, we figured “hey, why not make our month even crazier”! – We headed to Dublin’s RDS for one of Europe’s biggest and best Wedding fairs, The Wedding and Honeymoon Show 2019.
On Friday we celebrated a Wedding of 80 persons, with set up, beautiful ceremony, meal and afters and then headed straight to the airport! Eve flew in to Dublin on the redeye, arriving in to Dublin Airport at 4am (god love her!), and as I finished later at the wedding than her, was blessed with the Saturday early morning flight, leaving home at 6am. Eve worked away getting the stand ready for the weekend whilst I was travelling and then I arrived in (after a quick change to the flamenco dress) to stand G8, which brought the beach to the fair.
Our stand had a beach backdrop and we seized the Spanish vibe and dressed in bright pink flamenco dresses. We were located close to the stage so enjoyed lots of wedding traffic of couples passing by looking to get married abroad.
If we thought Saturday was busy, then Sunday was an extreme sport. Although starting off quiet, by 3pm we’d done 4 hours of non stop chatting, taking details of over 100 couples looking to get married here in Spain.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to come and visit us in Dublin this weekend. We’ll keep you posted on our next trip to Dublin.
In the meantime, we look forward to our next show in Liverpool in the Spring.
For now it’s on to the emails and follow up from this weekend…
