Emma’s Story

Emma has spent the last decade of her career revolutionizing the wedding and event industry in Ireland & the US, as Director of Bentley Productions and co-founder of technology company, BriteVenue. 

Over the last several years I have been involved in founding and scaling a number of companies in the event & wedding space, most recently Bentley Productions & BriteVenue. Bentley Productions currently works with over 300 hundred people in Ireland and provides bespoke music entertainment and production. BriteVenue grew out of Bentley Productions when we struggled to find an all-in-one event management platform that would work and allow us to scale. Nothing complicated, just a fully integrated system, end-to-end, that our staff and clients would love interacting with. We built the system we wanted and watched our business grow a staggering 40% year-on-year. Skip ahead two years and now BriteVenue is transforming high-end wedding & event venues across the world, drastically reducing admin and improving their event sales & bookings. With offices in the Dublin, Galway, & New York, it’s been a wild ride. The best part? I’m only getting started.

Bentley Productions

Emma is co-founder of Ireland’s leading provider of bespoke music entertainment and production, Bentley Productions faces the music so you don’t have to! Crafting entertainment solutions is an art, not a science and, with over 15 years in the events industry, we’re a seasoned group of event professionals.


Emma is also co-founder & CMO of BriteVenue, the best platform in the world for venues who want to streamline the way they manage their wedding & event inquiries, contracts, bookings and payments. BriteVenue brings all of these processes together into one beautiful & easy-to-use platform.

As Featured On

Venue Consultant

In her capacity as co-founder of Bentley Productions, Emma has first-hand experience of how challenging the management of overflowing inboxes and difficult brides & grooms can be. That’s why Emma and co-founder, Eamon Crosby, built BriteVenue. To provide an all-in-one event & wedding management platform for venues. Now Emma works with very high-end wedding venues to help them solve some of their biggest organizational challenges; eliminating the paper-trail, providing a seamless booking process, driving more wedding & event sales, and streamlining & automating communication with clients.

“Brides are mass-emailers, often at 10pm while watching Game of Thrones – you need to position yourself ahead of the crowd and be the first responder ALWAYS! With BriteVenue you can congratulate your bride-to-be at 10.01pm while you are watching Grey’s Anatomy!”
