Testimonials : 

Michelle,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.

-Marin & Rob (wedding Oct 2014)

Michelle,Thank you so much for all your creative energy for our wedding. When I first saw the Woodard’s photos, I burst into tears because our wedding was so beautiful. We love the photos and our friends and family back home have been blown away. One of my favorite moments with the Woodard’s was when we went down to the Claddagh and we saw so many swans! When I show off the Claddagh photos, I love saying that Michelle, our wedding planner, ordered the swans just for us.Thanks again and a big thank you to the Woodard’s and all the wonderful people that made our big day happen,

 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.

Hi Ev and Keith,Well Ste received our wedding album this afternoon. What can I say?! It is absolutely stunning!!!!You captured the atmosphere of the day so incredibly beautifully, and as soon as we opened the album we were transported right back to all those lovely moments. You can almost smell the air that surrounded us that day when looking at the pictures!A lot of decisions were made when planning our wedding, but by far the best of all those decisions was to take that trip to Killarney to see you both. The end result is irreplaceable!!

Thank you both so so much, for your time and your advice, the courtesy you showed to all our wedding guests on the day, and for making the whole process as relaxed as it could possibly have been.Hope business continues to be good for you both. You deserve all the success in the world :)Take it easy and chat soon!

Hi Ev & Keith,Wow – what can we say? Those selection of photos are all we had hoped for and more! Receiving them on our one month anniversary was a fabulous gift, to say the least. 

We were both quite emotional looking at them – you really did manage to capture the love and sentiment of the day itself. As we were so central and focused on each other, it is so special to see, in the photos, the reactions and facial expressions of those around us on the day, particularly at the church. I really could look at the photos all day long – they are simply stunning. I have often looked at your blog and facebook photographs admiring your work and so I have to pinch myself to believe that is actually us. There are some really lovely and natural ones of dad and myself too which are really special as dad is not the easiest to capture! Like most men – he seems to have an aversion to any lens.

Thank you both for helping us capture all the precious moments of the day. You are an absolute pleasure to be around – so unobtrusive and low-key in your work but also understanding and good fun. You ask at the bottom of your email “Would you trust forever to just anyone?” – no, not just anyone is the answer, but we knew we could trust ye wholeheartedly. We can’t wait to see the rest of the photos – if that selection is anything to go by, we really are in for a treat!

With every good wish,

Muireann & Dónal
