Planning from London

My fiancé Mark and I planned our wedding in Ireland but we were based in the UK for most of the week. I was in Dublin at the weekends but as our wedding venue was Adare Manor in County Limerick it was difficult to get back and forth every weekend as I was also trying to find the perfect dress, bridesmaid dresses etc. in Dublin.

Ciara was an amazing help to both of us. Not only could she help advise on music for the wedding, bands for the reception, the best place to source flowers locally etc. saving on costs. However, more importantly, she was an incredible source of support for both of us and could see when we were getting stressed on the little things and not focusing on the big picture.

I had some very particular ideas! I really wanted the perfect Christmas wedding and had an idea to have miniature Christmas trees at the entrance of the church. Ciara made it happen and also had the idea to use battery operated fairy lights to enhance them even further. I also wanted to wear a particular nail varnish but could not source it anyplace. Ciara managed to do that also. The table plan was also a logistical nightmare as I had a particular seating plan in mind where each man sat opposite a lady on a very long table but I had one man extra… but Ciara really helped us with that and we placed our extra man - the Priest at the very head of the long table – genius.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Ciara, her professionalism and attention to detail is superb, that coupled with her infections enthusiasm make her the ideal wedding professional.
