The Flynn family owned Imperial Hotel, in the heart of Cork City, is inviting newly-engaged couples and their families to join celebrity photographer Jenny McCarthy and the hotel’s expert wedding team for an afternoon of wedding inspiration at the hotel’s Vintage Wedding Showcase on Sunday, January 21st. The elegant event, which will see the hotel’s new ‘Fairytale in Cork City’ wedding package officially launched, will take place from 1pm - 5pm, and will be an opportunity for soon-to-be brides and grooms to experience what one of Cork’s premier wedding venues has to offer.


The Imperial is delighted to partner with wedding photographer Jenny McCarthy for the upcoming showcase event. Jenny is one of Ireland’s most sought-after wedding photographers, who has captured the special moments at weddings of Ireland’s much-loved celebrities including Pippa O’Connor and Suzanne Jackson. With 12 years’ experience in the wedding industry, Jenny will present a very special Bride Guide workshop at the Vintage Wedding Showcase, where she will share her wealth of knowledge with guests on how to make their wedding day unforgettable, from posing tips for photos to advice on what to splurge or save on. A vast array of wedding exhibitors will be on hand on the day to provide couples with details of everything they could possibly need for their big day.


Located in the heart of Cork City, the much-loved Imperial Hotel is steeped in tradition and history, and is the perfect location for an intimate reception, private civil ceremony, or lavish gala wedding. Traditions and family are a huge focal point to so many Irish weddings, and with over 200 years of history in Cork City, the Imperial Hotel believes in creating a lifetime of beautiful memories, and is dedicated in its commitment to looking after each and every wedding hosted at the hotel. The hotel’s stunning ballroom radiates elegance and grandeur with its high ceilings, sparkling crystal chandeliers and luxurious furnishings, and is the ideal setting to create a day that fairytales are made of.


Frits Potgieter, General Manager at The Imperial Hotel, said “We are honoured that so many happy couples continue to let the Flynn Hotel family look after them on the most important day of their lives. We are committed to going above and beyond for each and every wedding to make it a day they will never forget. From a glass of bubbly in the hotel’s opulent marble foyer, to a sumptuous five course meal using seasonal local produce in the luxurious ballroom, we want your day to be perfect from start to finish.”
