We absolutely loved working with Martina!! She understood our vision and helped us execute it flawlessly. I had a pretty specific idea of what I wanted each part of the wedding to be like, but I didn’t think about the logistics at all on the day of. I woke up with basically no worries because I knew we were in such good hands.
She made sure all of our vendors were confirmed, and they all arrived on time and without issue. Plus, she had worked with many of them before, and they all had great things to say about her. One thing she did (that she said she always likes to do) was to give us a 30 min break alone with each other, after the ceremony and photos. We were taken to a room with some prosecco and some appetizers, and we got to have a rest and a quiet moment with each other. The day just rushes by, and it can be quite tiring, but having that break really helped to slow things down and let us enjoy ourselves even more.  I would recommend Martina to anyone who is getting married – she’s fab <3

NewBay House Wedding

In 2019 we hired Martina to be our Wedding Planner. Previous to hiring Martina we had picked our venue (Newbay House, Wexford) but we didn’t have any other suppliers. Martina was brilliant in arranging all of the other suppliers and keeping track of our budget for us. She researched the market and always presented us with her best three options. Martina picked an amazing Photographer and Videographer for us so that we will never forgot our special day. She rearranged all of our suppliers when we had to cancel our wedding due to Covid restrictions. On the day of the wedding, Martina sorted out everything for us which took a lot of the stress out of the day and we were really able to enjoy it. Wedding planning is stressful but having Martina made a huge difference especially on the day!

Fota Wedding Ireland

We spent over 2 years planning our wedding with Martina who became part of the family as we battled timing and numbers with the pandemic, culminating in delivering the most perfect day of our lives last November at Fota. Everything was perfect and far better than we could have ever imagined or dreamt. Our Guests also enjoyed a fantastic experience and this was all down to the energy that Martina brought to the organisation, and the day itself, taking all the worry away from us and allowing us to really focus on what was important. Thanks Martina for sharing that part of our lives with us and for making it so special.

Month of Wedding Planning

What an incredible weekend in Ballymaloe! We just wanted to drop you a very quick line to say our sincere thanks for all your input to our wedding. You are incredibly talented at your job, and we feel very lucky to have had you on board.

We are so grateful for all the hard work and organisation you put in both before, and on the day of the wedding. We had the time of our lives and just really loved every minute of the day. Knowing that everything was in your expert hands meant that we could soak up every minute…which we definitely did! God only knows where we would have ended up without you on the 17th May!

Des & Emin

Destination Wedding June 2017

Martina was our diligent and very thoughtful destination wedding planner. We had an amazing day, and this was purely down to the excellent and highly professional work ethic that Martina demonstrated from the very moment we contacted her. Martina did her utmost to help and this was greatly appreciated as we were organising our wedding while Emin and I were in Azerbaijan. She was able to meet with my family and guided my mother through the wedding venue. She was also there for us when we were trying to bring together the elements that helped personalise our wedding. If we had a question, she was able to speak to us via Skype and would reply promptly to emails and calls. Because of her, we were able to successfully put on our wedding in the space of 5 months.

Martina’s most special qualities are her sincerity to help, listen and put people at their ease. She became a good friend. It was truly a pleasure to have had Martina as our wedding coordinator as she did not just simply treat us as a customer, but as a friend. We would highly recommend Martina to everyone.

Martina, it was an absolute pleasure working with you planning our wedding day! From the word go, you made us feel at ease and confident that we were in good hands. Your tips and advice were a great help in the planning of our day. On the evening itself, everything was perfect and you were always on hand to ensure things went smoothly.

July 2017

Martina was a fantastic help from start to finish. She was always at the end of the phone or on email and happy to answer all the questions we had. She is very professional and efficient at her job. Martina checked in with us regularly in the run up to the wedding to make sure that we were happy with everything and even since the wedding, she was been in contact to see how married life is and it is these little personal touches that make Martina stand out from the crowd. Our day went perfectly. We loved every minute of it and James and I would do it all over again tomorrow if we could. We would highly recommend Martina for anyone planning their upcoming wedding day.

We had the pleasure of dealing with Martina in May 2017. As any bride and groom would agree, it’s so important to have a good wedding planner. From the day we met Martina I knew we were in good hands, we had some special requirements and Martina just waved her magic wand and made it all happen. All emails were answered quickly and if we had any questions and requests Martina was only too happy to look into these for us. Martina is extremely professional and efficient but with warmth and friendliness and she instantly gives you confidence in her ability. Thank you for making our day so special Martina!

Myself and my husband got married on the 13th of July 2017. In the lead up to the wedding Martina kept us calm every step of the way, she is extremely organised, efficient and also has a great sense of humour and she is very easy to get on with. We had total confidence in Martina the whole way through the process and we feel she went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We were extremely lucky to have her as our destination wedding planner. Thank you!
