Best Weekend Of Our Lives …
“I decided on Rosie for our wedding in Italy because there is no way I could have organised a wedding abroad especially in the time frame! I’m not the kind of person who likes to organise things! Rosie has a great reputation. Rosie was really helpful when it came to the paper work, the language barrier, everything really, and with helping us find a place and venue that fitted our vast criteria!! I would definitely recommend Rosie and her team.Hairdresser was great, flowers were lovely and food and wine was fab! We had the best weekend of our lives and it wouldn’t have been possible without them. So if they can do that for us I would definitely recommend them! Thanks for everything!!”
Heather Byrne & Niall Cooper, Tuscany, August 2015
Villa Chosen: Villa di Artimino
No of Guests: 120
Rosie’s comment: ‘This is the biggest villa in Tuscany. There is no accommodation in the villa itself but there is a small hotel and self catering accommodation on it’s grounds. Heather and Niall chose it because all guests could stay on site and enjoy the pool and restaurant. There’s a Catholic church and small town within walking distance, they could have an outdoor reception and they could party until 4am!’
‘Heather and Niall also chose my photography service www.rosiephotography.com : ‘We love the pics… absolutely gorgeous. Bringing back so many memories’.’
Magical Day, I can not speak highly enough of Rosie …
When we decided to marry abroad I decided getting a planner was the only way that it could be planned smoothly and efficiently. We had never been to Rome before and I wouldn’t know where to start researching a venue even. I spoke to an old school friend of mine that had gotten married in Rome a year previous to ours and she recommended Rosie to me as she was her wedding planner also. From start to finish , Rosie and her team were fantastic. I was in contact with Rosie for about 14 months from when we hired her and I have to say that nothing was too much for her- from arranging a venue to suit such a small number (20) , to booking accommodation that was within our budget. She often had to altar and amend various things such as venue and accommodation seeking new ones to suit us and this was never a problem for her.
With regards to religious paperwork and planning the ceremony, we were given detailed step by step instructions and this made life so much easier. Rosie made clear to us the time frame within which religious paperwork needed to be completed by etc. Her team helped with menus, airport transfers, etc. all of which I would not have been able to do myself without having a complete panic attack!! Rosie always made me feel very at ease both in emails and phone conversations , so easy to talk to, thrash out ideas with and more. The musician/singer Franceso was amazing at our reception, he made our night, as Rosie had promised he would. Astounding range to his voice and good fun with the guests too. The Food for our reception was top class and in abundance.
I would recommend Rosie and her team to any upcoming bride and groom. I cannot speak highly enough of her great work and without the help of her and her team our wedding day may have been very different. It was the best thing I ever did, hiring a wedding planner. From start to finish, Rosie took the stress away from me, was always very calm and reassuring. She organised flowers, photographer, wedding car, wedding venue and the rest. All of which were fabulous. The Church was beautiful and everyone back home were blown away by the amazing architecture of the building. Rosie kindly organised a trip in a Vespa and Fiat 500 after out wedding and we got some great shots in these! This was a lovely surprise, so thank you Rosie, you were fantastic to deal with, and made our day magical from start to finish. Getting married in Rome exceeded all our expectations thanks to your patience, time and enthusiasm in planning our special day.
Laura Donnelly & Brendan O Doherty, Rome, April 2015
Excellent service all round …
We were hesitant about hiring a wedding planner because of the cost factor and some other wedding planners we called didn’t seem trustworthy. Rosie has a great reputation and helped us select a fantastic location. We had big problems with our paperwork and Rosie was very supportive and good at keeping in contact with updates during a stressful time. She went beyond what was expected with our legal and paperwork problems between Ireland , Northern Ireland and UK. When we were in Italy, her team was very attentive and looked after all the fine details on the day and were very good to our wedding guests, Excellent service all round. I would most definitely recommend Rosie’s services, well worth it, she made it such an enjoyable time for us with special memories. We can’t put into words how smooth our wedding day went. The support we got on both sides, the food, service and how we were looked after for the 3 days was superb and we just want to say a huge ‘thank you ‘.
Frances Coleman & Noel McGullion, Amalfi Coast, July 2015
Venue Chosen: Garden overlooking Amalfi Coast
No of Guests: 12
Frances and Noel had a beautiful legal outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the Amalfi Coast with their nearest and dearest! They had a great photo session afterwards followed by relaxed dinner and drinks on a terrace with an amazing view. We had heard the bride is a great singer and guitarist, so we organised for a guitar to be at the reception for an impromptu jam session! While the paperwork for legal ceremonies in Italy is relevantly straight forward (once you know what you are doing!), sometimes there are issues with certain residencies and circumstances. An issue arose during the paperwork submissions for Frances and Noel which made it near impossible for them to have a legal wedding. But I love a challenge and finding a solution, which we did!
We had the best day ever …
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all the hard work that went into planning our wedding. It was definitely the most magical, amazing day of our lives and without your help that wouldn’t have been possible. Our guests are still raving about everything from the church to the food to the boat to the venue. Wow what a day!
I chose Rosie as our wedding planner because of her reputation in the Irish wedding scene and because she was quick to come back with comprehensive information. It was important to me to have an Irish link. I was nervous of employing a local wedding planner (in Italy) and handing over a large deposit without knowing if the contract I had with them was legit and binding. I would absolutely recommend Rosie she made the process so much less stressful for me and in turn for my husband 🙂 She was really helpful with liaising with the various suppliers, costs breakdown and tapping into her vastly superior experience and knowledge of weddings. Thanks so much for a fabulous day – we had the best day ever 🙂
Aileen Lalor and Sean McCormack, Sardinia, May 2015
Aileen and Sean chose the beautiful island of Sardinia for their wedding. They had a catholic church wedding and then they and their wedding party got a Catarmaran back to the hotel which was a big highlight of the day. “The boat providers were fantastic. Two really funny guys who treated us so well.” They had an amazing meal and hired an area beside the pool to party until 2am.
Great Communication, Fantastic Service …
As it was something we had never had the need to do before we were a little unsure about what services a wedding planner would provide for us. We planned to get married abroad, in Tuscany, Italy so we knew that the wedding would be something that we would need help to organise. We had met with other wedding planners, but chose Rosie The Wedding Planner for a number of reasons; she was very friendly and approachable, and allayed any anxieties we had about using a wedding planner. Rosie and her partners were extremely helpful, particularly with the finer details of the planning, helping with some things that we had even overlooked!! Another aspect of the service that we found particularly helpful, was the communication that Rosie and her partners had with us. They were always at the other end of the phone or email with advice and suggestions when needed. The attention to detail, was fantastic and it made us realise that they fully understood exactly what we were looking for!! Rosie provided us with a fantastic service and we would fully recommend her. Using a wedding planner to organise your wedding abroad, involves a lot of trust, particularly if, like us you don’t make a trip there beforehand. We put our trust in Rosie and were absolutely thrilled with the final results!! Everything went fantastic and we wouldn’t change a thing.
Marie and Damien Miles, Tuscany, July 2014
Rosie, thanks again for making our day perfect! Of all of the vendors we went through, you were able to get what we wanted and make everything happen perfectly! I didn’t have to hold your hand and walk you through every step of the process reminding you that we didn’t want a big fancy wedding.
It is very rare that we find someone who can understand us, and do what we want; not what they think we want. You managed to pull everything off perfectly.
We had the most perfect wedding day and honeymoon in Austria. With just the two of us, we wouldn’t have changed a thing. We both want to do it all over again.
The family and staff at the hotel couldn’t have been nicer and so helpful, really friendly and made us feel so welcome. They really made our day soooo special. The hotel itself was gorgous … I couldn’t fault it.
If it wasn’t for you Rosie, we couldn’t have done it. Our special day was made possible with all your help. So a HUGE BIG THANK YOU to you.
A deep felt thank you Rosie for helping Rob and I plan our wedding day in your beautiful Johnstown castle, a really meaningful, totally unforgettable day. I find it hard to put your professional, totally relaxed manner into words, to give you the appreciation that you really deserve. Nothing was too much effort for you, we really feel that you done your utmost to get to know us and ensure that our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. You were always on hand to listen, advise, organize and generally take away any stresses that we had. And the fact that we had total confidence in you meant that in the run up to the wedding, and the day itself, all we had to worry about was having a good time!
You can see that this is a job that you love doing and that you take pride in doing it well! It’s defiantly something you should be proud of. You provide a fantastic service and we couldn’t recommend you highly enough.
As I said Rosie, it is difficult to describe exactly how much we appreciate your help, we had such an amazing day. It was better than we could ever have hoped for. And your input was such an important part of making the day so special.
Rosie- Thank you so much for making our wedding day a success! We keep looking back on how perfect the day and wedding was and we couldn’t be happier! Thank you!
My wife and I decided right away after I proposed that we wanted to have a destination wedding. After some discussion we decided on Ireland. I can tell you there are not may places with such beautiful landscapes, colorful people, history and romantic settings as Ireland. Once we made the decision to work with Rosie, the first thing that she really made me feel good about was our budget. We had a number in our head of what we wanted to spend and were determined to stick to it. Rosie was very understanding of that fact and made us feel like we were a real priority to her. Even though our budget was modest. The end result of all Rosie’s hard work and time was a wedding in an Irish Castle, a horse drawn carriage through the gardens, a reception overlooking the Irish Sea and a end of the night celebration in a small quaint pub with live music. I still look back in disbelief that our initial dream became such a beautiful moment that we never will forget. None of it would have been possible without the help of Rosie. I think she honestly cares about making your moment special. So in short, I can’t imagine there is anyone better that you could plan your wedding with.
Thank you for arranging the most amazing wedding for us in New York! You’re service is brilliant and your partners in New York were fantastic. I just wish it wasn’t all over!
St Lucia was magical. You really know your stuff, even when our plans got complicated you knew exactly what to do to make it a stress free planning process Thank you so much.
Rosie is AMAZING! After 17 years of marriage I decided to surprise my wife and family with a trip to Ireland to renew our vows. I contacted as many wedding planners as I could find on the internet who dealt with Ireland and BINGO Rosie jumped out from the rest. She was so patient and worked hard to keep things below budget (yes below!). As we had never been to Ireland, I placed my complete trust in Rosie to create a trip of a life time. I gave her a detailed description of our dream day and I could not believe what she produced for us! It went way, way, way beyond our expectations. We renewed our vows in an ancient, picturesque, church ruin on a little island off the west coast of Ireland. The whole day was unbelievable, it was like something from a movie and we were the stars! I cannot thank Rosie enough for all she did for us to make our wedding and stay in Ireland so magical.
Myself and Paul would like to extend a massive thank you to you for everything you have done to make our wedding day so special. We were blown away by how beautiful the castle looked. It was such a special day and all our guests were commenting all day and night about what a spectacular location Johnstown Castle was for our wedding. You have given us a lifetime of memories to look back on. Can’t thank you enough.
I am still recovering from what was quite possibly the most exhilarating week of my life! Everything went as close to perfect as we could have ever hoped for, and I have so much to say the thought of trying to capture it all was overwhelming… Thank you for all you did to make such an incredible experience possible for us and for our families. I keep telling everyone the day was as close to perfect as anyone could ever hope for and I mean that genuinely. When I felt paralyzed by the great unknown ahead, you kept us on track, and what a beautiful place it brought us to! Many, many thanks!
