Hi all We got married on 1st Aug and have to say everything went fantastic - I wouldn't change a thing - the rain stopped and the sun even made an appearance for us! The day was perfect. I will try and get around to doing a 'report' but for now, just thought I should recommend my suppliers... Cake - Goyas: Cake was lovely and went down well with everyone. Suit hire - Corless: No problems with service, suits looked great on the fellas. Make-up - Karen Boyle: I had originally booked PaulineFletcher but she had to cancel for personal reasons. She recommended a friend of as a replacement and Karen was really nice. mY make-up on the day was perfect, just what I wanted. Flowers - Branch: The flowers were really nice, we didnt go overboard but they looked great. Ceremony Music - Corrib String Quartet: we didnt have a singer and to be honest, we didnt need one, they played beautifully. Videographer - Brooks Videos: Paschal was great - really relaxed. We didnt even notice him on the day. We have a preview dvd of the day, cant wait for the full DVD. Photographer - Peter Harkin: Had read quite a few bad reports on here about him. Found him fine - he was a little impatient at times when people were faffing but to be honest, we didnt have a problem with this. We have just received our preview photos and they are fantastic... I do not normally like myself in photos but am delighted with the ones he took. He also did a slide show of some photos of the day, went down a treat with people saying what a nice touch it was - also raised a few laughs! Band - Weightless Astronauts: They were brilliant. The dance floor was packed all evening - I would highly recommend them. Some of our guests are still talking about them. DJ - Aidan Kenny: Again, really good, he kept the dance floor packed. Chair covers - Mayo Wedding Bells: very easy to deal with and room looked great. Cheap as well! Hotel - The Ardilaun: Everything went smoothly. Food was lovely, room was lovely. We didnt have any complaints and lots of people commenting about how nice the food was. Overall, I was lucky with my suppliers. They were all really good!!!

Congratulations Emma, glad to hear you had a fantastic day! We have quite a few of your suppliers booked too, Goyas, Corless, Branch flowers, Corrib String Quartet, AND Peter Harkin - relieved to hear he was okay as the reviews on here had worried me too!
