Hi Waterbabe, Judy Clarke isn't the same as Judi from Balla Florists. I'll pm you Judy Clarke's number. She's based in Manulla but brilliant - I have booked her. b2b oct 2009 - what was the question re Ballintubber Candles?

Hi I'll second judy clarke as being really nice. Have just spoke to her over the phone and she is really nice. I don't think she does red carpet though or maybe she does. I didn't ask her.

Hi Teletubby, I was speaking to her myself earlier in the week about the red carpets actually. She doesn't do them. I was asking her if she knew anyone or if she'd heard of the other company I got. I tried Tina at Mayo Wedding Bells and she's already booked for the day of mine. Another girl gave me the email address for a company called go red the day you wed. They've quoted me the same as Tina anyway. Judy has their phone number or I can pm you their details. :) She's such a lovely woman, very easy to talk to and very approachable. xxx

Thanks for letting me know. I was the same as you, tina is booked for my date. I also got a quote from go red the day you wed. I found someone cheaper though if you haven't already booked. Candlelight weddings. they are a supplier on here. Fiona is her name and she is from mayo as well based in Kildare though. for their carper it is just 100 :thnk
