I have to say from the first moment we met Michelle we knew she would do a fantastic job. Living in London at the time we only had correspondence via email. She put so much work into sending venues & showed us what Ireland had to offer. My now husband is from Kildare so it wasn’t a hard sell, but after our visit with Michelle we knew she was the one to help. We decided on Luttrellstown Castle August 2016. Planning was in full effect, Michelle made it so easy.

Easy for most brides is not in our vocabulary but it really was. My mother and I visited (from the U.S) all of our vendors in March that Michelle and I had been working with. I have to say with jet lag I was a little confused and doubted my decisions. Michelle and the vendors were patient and creative! Our day turned out to be truly magical! Thank you so much Michelle! You made our wishes come true (within budget) and it’s one our families will never forget! From the venue, Irish dancers & every detail in between…. Perfection!

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.

It was Michelle and her amazing team who planned the most unforgettable day for me and my now husband. All 40 of our family and friends who attended the wedding said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. For that, I am forever grateful.

 So ladies, if you are looking for an amazing wedding experience, look no further than Ireland and plan on hiring the one and only Michelle Dermott. You will not be disappointed!

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 was all done with such care like it was her own special day. Even last minute changes on the day of the wedding in Ireland!

Our day went off without a hitch and it was all because of her.


Laura & Ryan:



Thank you so much for all your creative energy for our wedding. When I first saw the Woodards’ 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 Woodards was when we went down to the Claddagh and we saw so many swans! When I show off the Claddagh photos, I love to joke that Michelle, our wedding planner, ordered the swans just for us.

Thanks again and a big thank you to the Woodards and all the wonderful people that made our big day happen,





I would be remiss if I did not take the time to tell you formally how much we enjoyed working with you in the planning of the wedding for our daughter Marin and her husband Rob.  From the minute his mother and I met you, I believed we had found the right individual to listen to our needs. You helped create a beautiful wedding for the two of them, their families and our friends.  Although my initial concern was communication with the distance and different time zones. You were always punctual, ready to answer questions, concerns, and develop the team we needed to ensure an extravagant event was created. 

The many thank you notes and kind words we received from guests were heartwarming and attribute much to your efforts and professionalism. “Fairytale wedding” were some expressions and or “you thought of everything.”  Truly appreciate all you did to meet our objectives and expectations over the entire weekend.
