Whatever way you’re planning to say ‘I do’, say it with Lawlor’s. Whether you’re freshly engaged or the big date is looming, it’s never too late to start planning the wedding of your dreams.
Solemniser and DJ Ruth Scott will appear at the Lawlor’s of Naas Wedding Showcase, Sunday 2nd of April to help you every step of the way down the aisle. The event will be held from 2pm to 5pm at the newly-refurbished Lawlor’s of Naas hotel.
Explore a plethora of exciting venues from the breath-taking ballroom to the timeless courtroom. Meet with some of Ireland’s most prestigious wedding suppliers from flowers to suits to photography and enjoy the exclusive offers and competitions available on the day.
The Lawlor’s wedding team will also be on hand to answer any questions and help you plan your special day.
Couples who register in advance to attend the Wedding Showcase will be in with a chance to win lunch at Vi’s Bar and Restaurant.
Weddings are a confusing time for many couples, especially when it comes to paperwork and formalities.
Lawlor’s want to make the day as easy as possible for their couples and have invited Classic Hits DJ and Solemniser Ruth Scott to the showcase to help couples navigate the legalities of a wedding.
Ruth will be hosting two talks at the showcase (2.30pm and 4pm) where she will explain how civil and humanist ceremonies work.
These talks will take place in the courtroom at Lawlor’s. The lovingly restored wood-panelled, 19th-century courtroom is a unique and extraordinary location for a wedding ceremony.
This venue will be showcasing what a potential Civil Registration might look like.
Ruth Scott said of speaking at the wedding showcase “I know how stressful it is planning a wedding. After speaking with a couple and explaining all of their options, I help them to create the wedding ceremony that they really want and ensure they get the best start possible to their special day.”
On the day Ruth will speak about the legalities of a humanist wedding, what these alternative ceremonies might look like, and how the ceremony can be made personal to the individual. For a taster of what’s to come, see Ruth’s top wedding tips here:
1. Set a tone for your wedding day. For example, if you decide you want it “light-hearted & relaxed” it helps you make all your wedding day decisions.
2. There’s a lot of excitement and adrenaline on a wedding day & the happy couple will spend the day chatting to loved ones. I often suggest having some rehydration salts on the morning of the wedding and if you can remember to drink water. It’ll help you to not have totally lost your voice by the time the dancing starts!!
3. If you’re wearing heels to an outdoor wedding, there are little plastic stoppers you can get for your heels so that you don’t spend the day sinking into the grass!
4. A groom told me that he had a spare clean shirt so that after all the hugging & kissing of family & friends, he could put on a clean shirt for the meal.
5. Something I wish I had been told was to carve out 20 or 30 minutes during the day where you & your new spouse can sit down together. The day can go so quickly that you almost need to schedule a little gap for yourselves.
