We always knew our wedding co-ordinator Olivia O'Donnell was the best of the best and finally it has been recognised nationwide! Olivia and the team at Ocean Sands Hotel are honoured and delighted to be the winners of the prestigious Wedding Coordinator of the Year 2020 in all of Ireland at The 4th Irish Wedding Awards! We take great pride in our team and the care they apply to every wedding held at the hotel and are overjoyed to have received this reward from our peers.

The 4th Irish Wedding Awards 2020

Ireland is a truly special place to enjoy the best day of your life, whether you choose a city-style wedding or a beachside ceremony. The 4th Irish Wedding Awards aims to reward those within the wedding industry that help to make one of the most special days of our lives one to remember; whether they are caterers that provide delicious food, decorators that give our venues a fairy-tale sparkle or DJs & bands that add something special to the atmosphere. The categories range from best makeup artist to florist of the year and everything in between, making sure every person that makes your day is recognised. The black-tie event took place on Monday January 20th at The Crowne Plaza Dublin Airport Hotel.

Irish Wedding Co-Ordinator of the Year 2020

Olivia, our talented wedding coordinator, was shortlisted as one of ten in the entire country of the most deserving and hard-working in the category of Irish Wedding Co-Ordinator of the Year, which in itself is a huge achievement. On the night, Olivia was the well-deserved winner of this prestigious and sought after award proving that her effort, dedication and commitment to her job does not go unnoticed. Olivia goes above and beyond for every couple who walks through the doors, making sure that nothing is overlooked, and nothing is too much hassle. While Olivia was the overall winner, her job is supported by the rest of our wedding team, from the wait staff to the chefs, who work together to make every single wedding held here an excellent experience for all. We’d like to congratulate all of the nominees and winners in every award category and acknowledge the hard work you all do to make every couples day extra special.
