An utterly unique ‘wedding fayre extravaganza’ captured hearts and minds Sunday January 28 as Fitzgerald’s Vienna Woods Country House Hotel hosted a ‘top to toe’ showcase of everything on offer at this family run four-star hotel.

The elegant venue, located close to Cork City on two acres of private woodland in Glanmire, rolled out the red carpet for engaged couples still on the hunt for their ‘wow’ wedding venue and gave a truly VIP experience to all guests. The Cobh animation team, fire breathers and live music on the rooftop were just some of the highlights, which made this exciting wedding event memorable!

Setting their Wedding Fayre apart from the crowd, The Vienna Woods team offered ‘access all areas’ tours of their luxurious ceremony and reception areas,  exquisite bridal suite and 48 guestrooms. Sample food and drink, just like it would be served on the big day with a variety of nibbles, starters, mains and desserts were all generously available to trial. Throughout the venue entertainment and decor was fully laid out, so attendees could gain a true measure of what they can expect from their bespoke Vienna Woods Wedding. Finally, to ensure every query was answered and every need is serviced, all staff were fully available and enthusiastic to discuss any and all aspects of planning the big day.

With an unrivalled reputation for delivering superior wedding hospitality, it is no surprise that all the stops were pulled out for this Wedding Fayre event. Each room will feature something different, from on-trend gin and tonic carts to colourful cocktail displays, warm apple cider shots, champagne and wine reception setups. Similarly, each room showcased a different food offering from full wedding A la Carte, to afternoon tea, canapés, soup and much, much more. Decked out in chef whites, the skilled culinary team were on hand to discuss menu preferences and had the kitchen open for walk-throughs, allowing a rare opportunity to see the inner workings of one of Munster’s leading wedding destinations.

A major element of a memorable wedding day is the ambience and that is lovingly crafted by a combination of the setting, decor and music/entertainment. Vienna Woods Country House Hotel is an eighteenth century listed mansion, featuring a newly refurbished ballroom, resplendent with curved ceiling and maple dance floor. A Vienna Woods wedding includes many complimentary features, which other hotels do not offer. Check out the mood lighting, Chiavari chairs, classic wedding cake stand and knife, baby grand piano, complimentary table decorations and personalised souvenir menus, which were all showcased on the day. To further amplify the wedding celebratory feel, there were different musical styles in various rooms; as well as outdoor performances and there was a first dance display at 30 minute intervals. Other extras to anticipate included sweet table, bride and flower girls, seasonal decor and warm and welcoming turf fires. Of course, Vienna Woods Country House Hotel is privately owned, Irish and family-run, so along with their expert team, Michael and Maryanne look forward to welcoming you.
