coordinator & senior adviser
social butterfly. believer in destiny. creative genius.
The beginning of a partnership.
It all started almost 20 years ago. Michelle and I sat next to each other in a marketing lecture at DIT (Dublin Institute of Technology), where we became fast friends. Over the years, as Michelle began building the business, the time came to expand and open a Dublin office, she invited me to take a key role and I was so thrilled! I get to work alongside one of my best friends while planning the ultimate in lifetimes events — weddings — all in my beautiful home country of Ireland! Living the dream stuff, hey!
Forever A Dubliner.
I was born in Dublin and I am still based here, operating out of our Waterlily Weddings Dublin office. I spent most of my childhood exploring the hills of Donegal (northwestern Ireland) and the other beautiful regions of the island. I am so excited to share my knowledge and passion for my beautiful home country with our clients, and help them discover the perfect, beautiful place to host their dream destination wedding in Ireland!
What makes you the best planner?
With over 15 years of corporate event experience in both the Irish hospitality and Beauty industries, I bring my passion for creativity and a near-obsession for attention to detail to Waterlily Weddings. I am organized and extremely knowledgeable about our history and traditions. My role in Waterlily Weddings allows me to travel to the four corners of Ireland. This enables me to keep in face-to-face contact with all of our approved wedding venues and suppliers, ensuring top quality for our clients. I am on the constant look out for new venues, artists, suppliers, and talent to work with in order to craft bespoke wedding experiences for our clients. And I am excited to get to work on your dream wedding in beautiful Ireland!
