I have to say from the first moment we met Michelle we knew she would do a fantastic job. Living in London at the time we only had correspondence via email. She put so much work into sending venues & showed us what Ireland had to offer. My now husband is from Kildare so it wasn’t a hard sell, but after our visit with Michelle we knew she was the one to help. We decided on Luttrellstown Castle August 2016. Planning was in full effect, Michelle made it so easy. Easy for most brides is not in our vocabulary but it really was. My mother and I visited (from the U.S) all of our vendors in March that Michelle and I had been working with. I have to say with jet lag I was a little confused and doubted my decisions. Michelle and the vendors were patient and creative! Our day turned out to be truly magical! Thank you so much Michelle you made our wishes come true (within budget) and it’s one our families will never forget! From the venue, Irish dancers & every detail in between…. Perfection!

Now that all the wedding madness is over and thank you’s are close to completed, I wanted to make sure I properly thanked the most important person of this wedding- YOU! I cannot even begin to thank you for all of the hard work that went into our wedding. Please know that it did not go unnoticed. The day itself was absolutely magical. It was the best wedding I have ever been to. I can’t believe it was ours!!!!! Not only was the day PERFECT, but the entire process leading up to the wedding was SO EASY working with you. I hear horror stories of planning a wedding, but you made the process a breeze. Your calm demeanor and ability to make sure that any request was made truly made the experience what it was!!! Please know how much Rob and I are thankful for your help and the help of the entire group. I wish we could go back and do it all over again… Exactly the same way :). 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Dear Michelle,

Mel and I have just got back to Guildford after a long drive weary but pleased to be back. I really wanted to acknowledge the amazing job you did for the wedding of Emmett and Lucia. I realise that you and Lucia were in contact a long time before I met you, and a lot of decisions had already been made. When Mel and I met you, in Kenmare (on Fair Day, of all times!) you were, as expected, professional, organised, on top of everything.

I had no idea that your job was so complex, and demanding, and that it needs such an incredible range of skills. I think what struck me most was that you managed people just as successfully as you managed events. You could give us a heads-up on how to manage the drinks bill, how to manage difficulties with technical aspects of the marquee, how to get a loan
of baby seats if they were needed, how to make sure the toilet trailer was appropriately set up; there was nothing you did not have a handle on. But you also managed a wide range of people
of different types and personalities with grace and professionalism.

Interestingly, on the day of the wedding itself, I hardly noticed you were there. I was so involved in what was going on, I was just trying to keep a handle on what my own role was. However, I went to Ennis to see my mother a few days ago, and went for a pint with Emer, my sister. She said she saw you on the wedding day, quietly and unobtrusively keeping an eye on every single thing that was going on. You were apparently, quietly sorting things out with the minimum of fuss and staying in the background while the event was going on.

It really could never have happened without you. Thank you for everything you did, for your patience and good humour, your project management skills and your tolerance of a complex, multi-faceted wedding where the glories of Brazil and Ireland were, very happily, merged!

Michelle literally thinks of everything!!!

My wife Tricia and I are based in New York and got married in Ireland, if it wasn’t for Michelle and her team we wouldn’t have been able to do it.

We couldn’t have made a better choice. She helped us at every stage of the planning and was amazing on the day. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough, weddings are expensive, but the money we spent on Michelle was the best investment we made.

Her patience, dedication, hard work, attention to  detail, and professionalism made our big day stress and worry free. Everything Michelle did, even last minute changes on the day of the wedding in Ireland, was all done with such care like it was her own special day.

Our day went off without a hitch and it was all because of her.

I would be remiss if I did not take the time to tell you formally how much we enjoyed working with you in the planning of the wedding for our daughter Marin and her husband Rob.  From the minute his mother and I met you, I believed we had found the right individual to listen to our needs and help create a beautiful wedding for the two of them, their families and our friends.  Although my initial concern was communication with the distance and different time zones, but you were always punctual, ready to answer questions, concerns, and develop the team we needed to ensure an extravagant event was created.  The many thank you notes and kind words we received from guests were heartwarming and attribute much to your efforts and professionalism. “Fairytale wedding” were some expressions and or “you thought of everything.”  Truly appreciate all you did to meet our objectives and expectations over the entire weekend.


Yet most importantly, it was Michelle and her amazing team who planned the most unforgettable day for me and my now husband. All of our family and friends who attended the wedding said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. For that, I am forever grateful.

So ladies, if you are looking for an amazing wedding experience, look no further than Ireland and plan on hiring the one and only Michelle Dermott. You will not be disappointed!
