Why the Northwest?

The Northwest of Ireland is a top choice destination for couples seeking the ultimate picturesque fairytale wedding. A destination rich in history, with a charming natural beauty. A historic walled city, lavish in its architecture with a glorious riverside setting. An unspoilt rugged coastline, windswept peninsulas and endless stretches of idyllic golden beaches will serve as a spectacular backdrop to your dream day. Where romantic settings and breath-taking views are matched with stunning venues and experienced wedding suppliers who are invested in ensuring your day is truly magical.

The choices…

Take a journey of discovery with me, while I unlock all of the Northwest’s hidden gems and help guide you on your wedding planning journey! Whether your wedding style is traditional, vintage, colourful or retro themed there is a venue and array of suppliers out there for you! From photographers and florists to dress designers, bridal shops, wedding cars, cakes, entertainment and bespoke designs, the choice is endless.

Derry and Donegal have a wealth of amazing wedding venues, whether you’re seeking the opulent grandeur of one of its many castles, the elegant and luxurious appeal of its many hotels or the more relaxed surroundings of a country house or rustic barn setting. It will not disappoint. From family owned and operated to larger venues, you will experience creative menus, impeccable attention to detail and the warm and friendly approach, for which we are all known.

The services…

Arrive in style! With an array to choose from, you can opt for the traditional classic car, the limousine, vintage style, the retro VW (my personal favourite) or the luxury modern day 4×4.

We have a wealth of photographers in the locality, who aim to capture your love story through their storytelling photography. From your engagement shoot to your big day, they will blend seamlessly into the goings on of the day, taking natural shots and capturing moments of spontaneity, so you can spend the day with your family and friends, which is exactly what you want to do! With the Northwest providing a stunning backdrop, a visual essay of your day will be beautifully and easily composed! Choose from those with a distinctive traditional style to those with a flair for mixing things up with creative and contemporary twists! To ensure you’ll get to see any great moments you might miss, a videographer is always a good option.

The traditional floral bouquet is still a very popular trend with lots of brides and there are a wonderful array of florists who are ever reinventing their designs to suit seasonal trends. For those of you who are non-traditional or if real flowers just aren’t your thing, there are lots of alternative ideas out there! Candles for some are replacing church flowers and the traditional bouquet for some is being replaced with paper, fabric and brooch bouquets and puppies (yes puppies! )
