Roundwood-based wedding website expands into the UK
A LEADING start-up website with its base in Roundwood has acquired an established UK business. Irish wedding webiste Mrs2Be.ie just completed the purchase of a Wrexham based wedding planning and marketing business with a similar name, Mrs2Be.com.
The completion of the deal sees the Roundwood company make the transition from a domestic brand to an international one in the online wedding marketing arena.
Mrs2Be.ie was established in 2009 by husband and wife team, Keith and Claire Malone. In a short space of time the website went on to become one of Ireland's most popular wedding resources. The site advertises venues and wedding service providers such as photographers, bands, cake specialists, florists and bridal shops to engaged couples all over Ireland.
Speaking about the recent deal, Keith Malone, CEO of Mrs2Be.ie said, ' acquiring the UK-based Mrs2Be.com business was a natural progression for us. Despite an over-saturated marketplace, we've already managed to quickly position Mrs2Be.ie as Ireland's secondlargest wedding website. While we expect to enjoy further growth in Ireland, this acquisition offers exciting possibilities because the UK market is approximately ten times larger.'
Mrs2Be.com was launched in 2005 and is one of the UK's longest established wedding websites.
