The Metropole Hotel in Cork City is calling on couples who celebrated their wedding reception at the venue over the last 50 years to join their new Wedding Club.

The first ever Wedding Club at the Metropole Hotel is set to be launched later this year and will see various events rolled out to mark the occasion.

Participating couples will have their memories immortalised on the hotel's new wedding wall which will display wedding pictures from over the years. They will also be entitled to a platinum card, affording them exclusive discounts and offers within the hotel for life. An event will take place in October for couples to celebrate past weddings at the hotel. Participants will even have the chance to win a prize to renew their vows at the Metropole Hotel.

General Manager at the Metropole Hotel, Roger Russell said:

“Weddings have changed over the years, going from Wedding Breakfasts for an hour to big affairs with 200 people over the whole day. Over the last 50 years we have had more than 3,000 weddings at the hotel and we want to know your stories so please get in touch. Our team are waiting to hear from you and you will be treated to a complimentary overnight stay with breakfast for sharing your story”
