The prestigious Wedding Journal Reader Awards Ceremony took place in the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin – a fabulous setting for a fabulous event!

Renowned for celebrating the best in the business, the Wedding Journal Awards act as an industry guide for budding brides and grooms when deciding which suppliers and businesses they should place their trust in to make their big day the one to remember!

The awards, which began in 2012, give readers the opportunity to nominate and vote for their favourites – so it comes as no surprise that McElhinneys have been in the running for various awards across a number of years!

The McElhinneys Team were in attendance as double finalists! Nominated by the public as both best Groomswear Supplier and Mother of the Bride Retailer of the Year.

Martin McElhinney, General Manager, stated: "We didn’t manage to come away with a double win, but we were absolutely thrilled to have been awarded the Mother of the Bride Retailer of the Year – beating off the other finalists Debenhams, Arnotts, Perfect Night & Sinead’s Boutique.

"We are delighted to add this 2018 title to our repertoire having won the 2017, 2016 & 2015 Mother of the Bride/Designer Retailer of the Year also!

“We are very proud of all our team.  This award is a representation of the brilliance of our people. Our collective mission is to ensure McElhinneys it not only survives, but thrives, growing, and developing in the short, medium and long term.

"Our online sales continue to grow and recent investment in new technology will enable further growth year on year – but it is our people who are at the heart of our future success.”
