About us

our inspirations

While planning our own weddings, we (and our other halves of course!) knew that we wanted very personal, individual weddings that reflected who we were as people, not just as brides. We found it difficult to find the type of inspiration and ideas we were looking for using the traditional wedding media resources in Ireland, but instead found our inspiration when travelling, browsing through design and fashion magazines and on the hundreds of amazing websites and blogs on the internet. We searched far and wide for the unique touches that made our days so special and memorable for us and our guests.

Having seen the method used abroad, we both created our own ‘Inspiration Boards’ to help form concepts and themes for our weddings – these turned out to be invaluable tools when sorting through all the information and ideas we came across, and in communicating a clear concept to the different vendors and suppliers we were working with. It saved us an unimaginable amount of time and money throughout our planning process.

Later, when we found ourselves working with Brides in our respective businesses, we saw a niche in the market and decided to combine our talents and passion for everything stylish and gorgeous about weddings to create a resource service for sassy, stylish Irish brides looking for something different and individual for their wedding day.

We’re so excited to be bringing this new service to Irish brides and we promise to bring the same enthusiasm and passion to your wedding as we did to our own. Happy planning!
