Sharon was amazing from Day 1. So kind, friendly and approachable and completely and utterly unfazed by any "out there" ideas, or contrasting visions between the two of us. She was a massive help in terms of finding top class service providers, and completely cut out the stress of that kind of research on our side. She made herself available for phone calls morning, noon and night, and no request was too big or too small. Any minor crises that we may have experienced, Sharon was on-hand right away to work on a solution, which she always found. She was constantly coming up with new and exciting ideas to add to our vision of the day, which we loved. She not only worked with ourselves (bride and groom) in the run up to the wedding but was on-hand to answer questions/attend suit fittings/go mother-of-the-bride dress shopping with our extended families. Sharon also provided us with solid advice on where to spend big or small on different aspects of the day and was completely spot on with everything. On the day itself (and the day and night before actually), Sharon was there from beginning to end to ensure everything ran smoothly, which took any pressure off of us completely. Our wedding day was utterly flawless - it was without doubt the best day of our lives. We had so many comments and messages from guests in the days after the wedding where they said it was the best wedding they ever attended, which was amazing to hear and we really could not have achieved that without Sharon McMeel.

We couldn't recommend Sharon highly enough. We hired her four months before our big day & all we'd done was book a venue - not in Ireland but on a mountain top outside Barcelona! Neither of us speak Spanish or Catalan. We also have busy careers so we needed guidance, someone to manage the relationship with our suppliers, someone to advise on budget parameters & someone to help us create the very specific day we wanted. In all aspects Sharon was instrumental in making sure that happened. She met with us weekly, sometimes twice weekly, reminded us of everything we needed to do ourselves, took the burden of responsibility from us & reduced our stress levels. Her planning was meticulous & detailed. Her manner was supportive, friendly, warm & professional throughout the planning. She was always on call & gave us as much time as we needed. Nothing was too much trouble. By the time we were due to leave for the big day we were on budget (with no surprises) and everything we had wanted was secured exactly how we hoped. Sharon travelled to Barcelona to recce the venue & met all our Spanish suppliers in person. She made us feel that "our day" was really important to her - that is a great feeling to have. To a person, each of the suppliers told us "off-the-record" that she was the best planner they had worked with & made their lives so easy. On the week of the wedding Sharon protected us from everything stressful & ensured we enjoyed our big day. On the day itself she was ever-present but discreetly at a distant. She ensured everything happened like clock-work but never got in the way of our celebration. She judged it to perfection. Ultimately we had the greatest day of our lives - everything went to pass as we had dreamt. Our guests said it was "the best wedding they ever attended" - it truly was faultless. .
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Wow, you guys have left me slightly speechless with that review :-) . I'm so very happy to hear that you enjoyed the day so much and that I was able to support you throughout the planning process. I know that all the incredible suppliers that made up our wedding team were honoured to work with you and help you to have the magical wedding day you deserved. Thank you for allowing me to be part of it. xxx

Sharon was very helpful and supportive from our first meeting through to our wedding day. On the day of our wedding, Sharon was worth her weight in gold because it was through her swift action and network of suppliers that she managed to save our partially outdoor wedding from being a total disaster in light of the stormy weather! I would highly recommend Sharon's services - which are great value.

Sharon is an exceptionally talented wedding planner. She anticipates your every need and has the ability to be almost invisible but always there when you need her on the day. She has access to a large number of high quality suppliers and was invaluable in the design and planning of the day. She had lots of very good ideas but left it to us to decide what we were most comfortable with and then took care of every detail to make it all happen. On the budget side of things she kept us within our budget and gave lots of options and ways to get our desired result. Thanks to her we had a magical and unforgettable wedding celebration exceeding our expectations. Our friends and family were so impressed by the 3 day wedding she organized and how every detail was thought through and many commented that it seemed effortless but very well executed. As well as being a great planner Sharon is also a lovely person to spend time with and everyone genuinely loved her.

We loved having Sharon’s help planning our wedding, it really put our minds at ease since we were planning from so far away. All of the vendors she recommended we’re incredible. We had a perfect day thanks to Sharon.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
It was so great planning your special Irish wedding with you both. I know how important it was to you to showcase the best of Ireland to your guests for your wedding and you chose a great venue in Dromoland Castle for it as well as all the vendors we used. Glad I could help bring a great team around you for your wedding day and that you all enjoyed it so much. Looking forward to you returning to Ireland soon. x

I simply can not imagine our wedding day being the incredibly special day that it was if Sharon hadn't been looking after us. As a groom she was so easy to work with and helped both my fiancee and myself to appreciate and see things we hadnt even considered which gave us complete confidence to relax on our big day and just enjoy it from the first moment we woke to the end of the night. I have already recommend Sharon to a number of close friends for their wedsing as I know she would be able to look after them with great care and professionalism.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Dermot, thank you so much for those lovely and kind words. Working with people like you and Jacqueline is why I love my job. I was just looking back today at some of the wonderful photos from the day and they brought a great big smile to my face. xxx

Sharon is a true professional who at every aspect made us feel at ease and excited about our day. Her attend to detail is beyond expectations and ability to support is difficult situations in unparalleled. We would not have had the day or week running up to the wedding with she was not involved. Sharon was critical in the success of our fabulous and would highly recommend her for events or weddings.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Thanks Jackie, it was so wonderful working with you and Dermot in planning your wedding and I was more than happy to support you in all the decisions, difficult situations and also enjoy the happy, joyous moments with you too. It was such a beautiful day, in a beautiful venue with a beautiful couple. x

A few weeks into married life and the only reason it's taken this long to leave a review is because it's hard to put into words how invaluable Sharon is and how grateful we are to have her involved in our day. Since the wedding, people have asked if we were stressed or if we found day busy. Those thoughts didn't cross our minds – mainly because we had Sharon running around ahead or after us the whole time. We literally didn’t have to think about anything other than 'getting married' for the day. The other thing we heard was ‘the day will fly’ and in a way, it did, but we thoroughly enjoyed every single second. Having Sharon meant that we didn’t have to think about anything other than turning up which meant that we were both totally relaxed and able to enjoy just being in the day. We weren’t worrying about moving flowers from the church, or setting up/ taking down anything in the hotel, or any of the other things people who don’t have a planner like Sharon have to think about (we don’t even know what those things are!!). Throughout the planning process, Sharon’s help & guidance proved invaluable, but in the week leading up to the day it was priceless! Having someone to follow up with vendors, pick up the bits & pieces that we’d forgotten, drop bags to the hotel and all the other million things that only come up close to the day took all the stress and pressure off us and our families and made the lead up enjoyable & relaxing for everyone. Sharon's attention to detail – from the church decoration, to the hotel, to the nitty gritty details – is second none. She thought of and dealt with things that we didn’t even consider - and all with a smile! Without Sharon, we certainly wouldn’t have had the day we hoped for.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Sinead & Conor you have made me smile all over again with those kind words, thank you both. I'm so thrilled to hear that you were able to completely relax and enjoy the day with me by your side. Sinead seeing you run up to Conor during your 'first look' was a moment I won't forget and witnessing that kind of love is why I love my job. Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding planner and for allowing me to be a part of your special day.x

We had the most magical and wonderful day, thanks so much to Sharon for all the fantastic help in coordination and planning. Sharon found us the most magnificent florist and spectacular room decorator, super entertainment for various parts of the day and was a great assistance in the lead up to the big day as well as the day itself. Just over 5 weeks have passed and we are still ecstatic!!! Thanks so much for everything, it was the wedding of our dreams.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Eimear and Marcus, thank you so much for your beautiful testimonial. You are such a lovely couple and it was my absolute pleasure to assist you in having the wedding day you both deserved. I wish you all great happiness for your future together. x

I was a guest at a wedding that Sharon planned in Monaleen church and later at Dromoland. The church was amazing, the flowers, the candles the music there was nothing that wasn't done to make this special and to run smoothly. I have to admit when it comes to Dromoland I am always very nervous of the massive room that they have. I always think what can anyone do to make this feel warm and full.. Well I am happy to say.. How wrong was I? The room was nothing less than spectacular. It was decorated in beautiful fabric, from the walls to the table cloths, the candle the music the ambience was truly amazing. My hat goes off to you Sharon as this was no easy job and you did it to perfection. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any future brides out there. You truly are amazing at what you do. Eimear.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Eimear it makes me very happy to hear how much you enjoyed the wedding and the look we created in the church and Dromoland. Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely comments with me.

We The Vard Sisters can vouch for Sharon Mc Meel and her utter professionalism. We have been in the circuit of weddings for many years now and can honestly say that Sharon is one of the most professional wedding planners in the business that we have come to meet. We met recently at a wedding and we could not get over how lovely she was to deal with. We have a slight crisis with our musician and Sharon dealt with the situation straight away without any fuss. She was and is the utmost professional with an extremly lovely manner. The wedding was flawless and ran so smoothly from beginning to end. 5 stars from us The Vard Sisters.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Thank you ladies, you are very kind and it was my pleasure to help you out. We are all part of the same team on the wedding day! It was so lovely working with such elegant professionals and I look forward to working with you again soon.

Sharon was very good to work with, professional and easy to talk to. She would always listen to what we had in mind and we were on the same wave length in everything. She was always ready to help and was very flexible with meetings etc. I would warmly recommend her to any future brides! I would love to work with Sharon again in other possible events.

Our day would not have been so perfect and well organised without Sharon. The planning was painless and the wedding day more perfect than we could have imagined. It was flawless and it's all thanks to Sharon, she truly is in our eyes a superstar of the wedding planning world. I really don't know how we would have pulled off such a perfect day without her. She takes the hassle out of everything. On the morning of the wedding we could relax and enjoy getting ready and not have to worry about anything knowing it was all in her capable hands. She spent 2 days before the wedding at the venue, finalising everything, overseeing the decor, transporting boxes of decor stuff, cheese, lights, flowers, even a high nelly bicycle to the venue, coordinating everything including the deck by the lake where we got married, it was beautiful, she thought of everything. The planning and lead up to a wedding can be quite stressful for a couple especially when you are juggling work commitments and life in general, a wedding planner in our eyes is a must have. Sharon was fantastic in helping us choose suppliers and giving us great advice. She is an impeccable organiser who is infectiously enthusiastic about what she does, a constant source of positive energy. Her attention to detail is superb and she does it all with a big smile on her face. It is so nice to see someone enjoy their job as much as Sharon does, she was born to do this. She provided guidance regarding Costs and had a budget template for us which was invaluable as it covered everything. She even accompanied me wedding dress shopping, choosing our venue, wedding cake tasting, countless phone calls and emails, she was always there for us. Sharon is a beautiful person and I am so grateful that we had her to help plan our wedding. I laughed with her and cried with her and she was always there no matter what. She is a true professional and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with her. She helped bring our vision of our perfect day to reality. I would highly recommend Sharon to any couples getting married. You won't regret it. Thank you so much for everything Sharon.

For my daughter's wedding earlier this year we found Sharon's services invaluable. During the lead up and particularly on the day itself it was great to have Sharon ensuring all aspects of the planning went smoothly and the timing and running of the day went smoothly. I would highly recommend her services as her professionalism on the day and her attention to detail ensured that we could all enjoy ourselves without any distractions and my daughter's day went perfectly from start to finish.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Thank you for your kind words. It was lovely getting to know you and all your family and sharing in Laura & Andreas's wedding day.
Review by
As we were planning the wedding from abroad we found it very difficult to get information from suppliers quickly and the additional hassle of relying solely on email and phone calls was creating unnecessary stress. From the moment we started working with Sharon as our wedding planner this stress was taken care of. It was great to have Sharon's expertise, advice and skills in the planning stages, her management of suppliers and in working with us to finalise the details in the weeks and days in the lead up to the big day was invaluable. On the day itself it was fantastic to know that Sharon was on hand, knew and understood our vision for the day and was ensuring that everything went to plan.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Thank you Laura and Andreas. I really enjoyed my time with you bringing Irish and Austrian traditions together and I'm delighted to hear that I helped keep the stress levels to a minimum. :-)

We cannot begin to thank Sharon Mc Meel for being our wedding planner. Our Civil Partnership took eighteen months to plan and Sharon was with us each step of the way. The ability to work with two grooms with very different ideas and thoughts, on all aspects of the day was something Sharon took in her stride, helping to find a balance of personalities which was showcased on our day. Sharon’s expert knowledge was a huge asset to us both as every question and concern we had was quickly solved with a wink and a smile. Sharon took the stress away from us which allowed us to enjoy the journey and create long lasting memories which we will treasure forever. We could not have asked for a better civil partnership. We will forever be grateful to Sharon and certainly have made a friend for life. It was a pleasure to have Sharon join us on our journey.
Response from Sharon Mc Meel
Thanks so much Calvin and Stevie, it was a real pleasure working with you both. To be able to help you have a civil partnership that truly reflected you both was a privilege. Your willingness to try new and different things for your civil partnership really made it a very special day. Your friend Sharon x

Sharon, I cannot thank you enough for all you did for us yesterday. I don’t even know where to start! You truly are the best planner I have ever worked with! You are now fully adopted into the Dunn and McLaughlin family as everyone absolutely loves you. Thank you! We cannot wait to return.

Thank you so much for all your fantastic work and support…You are the real wedding planner of the year :) Thank you!

One of Sharon’s main attributes is her ability to listen; her interest in our daily lives enabled her to make suggestions ensuring our day would reflect our personalities and love of two rival rugby teams, Munster & Leinster! My brother’s outstanding memory is her ability to produce anything you asked for from her tiny bag, from tissues to rescue remedy. Our day was so special thanks to our wedding planner, our confidant, our friend, Sharon.

“Sharon worked with us for about a month prior to our wedding. If we had been aware of the positive contribution she was capable of making throughout the planning process we would have involved her from the beginning. Sharon is a true professional and a lovely person. From the moment she became involved she looked after everything and really took all the pressure off us and our families. No request was too big or too small. She added so much to our day and was calm, supportive, pleasant and fun throughout the time she worked with us. She made our wedding day the most special, relaxed day of our lives. Every element of the day was incorporated in a detailed schedule which was unobtrusively monitored by Sharon in the background. This was one of the most important days of our lives and investing in Sharon’s services contributed significantly to making it an unforgettable experience. It gives us great pleasure to wholeheartedly recommend Sharon’s wedding planning service to any prospective clients.”
