Proprietor Deirdre McGlone told the Donegal Democrat: “I’m delighted at this tremendous achievement, which is a reflection on the quality of our wonderful team at Harvey’s Point.

“Samantha, Sara, Christopher, the two Pauls and the entire team under the direction of Noel are all unstinting in their dedication and the attention the pay to detail for each and every wedding. They all go the extra mile with a smile!”

Design Your Moments, a company run by Kerry Harvey from Clar, Donegal Town, won Best Wedding Industry Newcomer . Kerry creates designer keepsakes and cake toppers. Kerry said: “It’s brilliant! To be honest, I was a bit shocked on the night because a lot of the newcomers have been in business longer than I have.”

McElhinneys Department Store in Ballybofey, no stranger to awards, scooped the award for Best Wedding Supplier Website while Callaghan Jewellers of Buncrana was named Wedding Jeweller of the Year.
