In what destinations do you offer wedding planning services?
We plan and coordinate bespoke, luxury destination weddings in both Spain and Ireland. I have lived and worked in various parts of Spain for over 8 years and now concentrate my Spain wedding planning services around Malaga, Marbella and Barcelona.
For intimate weddings in Ireland, we offer over services countrywide. I have tonnes of local knowledge and trusted contacts to make your dream wedding a reality.
Will you be there on my actual wedding day?
Absolutely! If you’ve opted for my full wedding planning and coordination service, I will be there on the day, in the background, to oversee the setup and liaise with the venue and vendors. I will be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly and fix anything unexpected that may pop up so you don’t even have to know about it, giving you the freedom to relax and enjoy every single minute of your precious day.
Do I need to travel to my wedding location before the wedding?
It’s entirely up to you! After we have discussed your requirements and I create a tailor-made shortlist of venues you may want to travel to visit them before making your final decision. I’ll plan the entire itinerary for your visit so you get the best of the area and have an enjoyable and relaxing trip. Or if travelling before the wedding isn’t practical for you, instead you can choose your perfect venue from the comfort of your own home, based on extensive information, photos, and plans I put together for you. That’s just one of the benefits of working with a wedding planner! I will be your reliable set of eyes and ears on the ground.
Depending on the type of ceremony you wish to have, keep in mind you may need to spend a few days in Spain or Ireland in advance of your wedding day for the legal paperwork required for the ceremony.
Do you offer on the day co-ordination on its own?
I don’t offer this as a stand-alone service, only as part of the full wedding planning service. I like to work closely with my couples from beginning to end. As part of the full wedding planning service, I will be there up until after the band has set up, so you and your guests can thoroughly enjoy the day.
What’s your Partial Planning Service and how does it work?
By choosing my Partial Planning Service, you’ll get a completely personalised service from the start. First, I’ll ask you to complete a checklist of all your dream wedding venue requirements to find out what’s most important to you both. Using this wish list, I then set out to research and discover amazing venues, from rural fincas to luxury beach clubs, to find the venue that’s the perfect fit for you. Every venue search is a unique, tailor-made experience that sets us apart from other wedding planning services.
The same is true for the vendors, my suggestions to you will all be based on your personal style, requirements and budget.
I want to host a pre/post wedding event, can you help me with this too?
As each wedding is unique in its requirements (and so it should be, it’s your day!) I don’t offer any wedding packages and instead, offer a completely bespoke service, catering to any individual requirements.
I work on just 10 weddings per year so that I can be as flexible as possible with each couple’s requirements to help them have the perfect destination wedding. If you would like a personalised quote or to add on any extra days to any of my services just get in touch and I’ll be happy to discuss it with you.
Do you only work with certain venues and suppliers?
I have a profile of high quality and trusted venues and suppliers that I can recommend, however, that does not mean that these are the only suppliers I work with.
I offer a fully bespoke service which means that together we will find the perfect match in both venue and suppliers for your perfect day. You will always be fully involved in every decision including all suppliers.
I really enjoy finding and visiting new locations and venues, seeking out the perfect setting for each couple I work with, all based on your unique requirements.
Do you offer help with wedding licences and legal requirements?
I provide assistance and professional advice about ceremony options and wedding legals in Spain and Ireland. The choices can be confusing and many couples feel overwhelmed by the paperwork, so I am here to help you make sure everything is in place as part of my full wedding planning service.
Take a look at my blog post for an overview of wedding legals in Spain.
Can you help with my vision for the wedding venue decor?
Yes we can! I love to work closely with couples who have exciting and unique ideas about their wedding decor. I have an extensive list of amazing suppliers who can help you achieve your dream wedding look, everything from bouquets to backdrops, seating to signage and more, share your ideas with me and we’ll make it happen!
Where are you based?
We are based between Marbella and Dublin.
However, I spend a considerable amount of time travelling around Spain and Ireland throughout the year visiting venues, meeting with local, reliable and trusted suppliers and of course coordinating weddings.
I work with couples from all over the world for their destination weddings to either Spain or Ireland. Where possible it would be great for us to meet in person, but initially, our contact will be via Skype or phone. Usually, the best time to meet is around the design stage or your wedding (approx 6 months beforehand) to go through all the important details. However, if it is not possible to meet in person before the wedding that’s no problem at all! As we are destination planners with a big percentage of our couples being from the US we are experienced in long-distance communication and use expert tools for the visual aspects. Everything from beginning to end can be discussed and easily planned via phone, email, Skype and our expert planning tool.
