Ciara & Richard - Barcelona Wedding

Ciara & Richard, Barcelona, Spain

Catalonia, Spain
“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.” – Ciara & Richard
