I was very nervous planning a wedding and not being able to be there to meet anyone ahead of time but Stephan picked the perfect people for us from celebrant, florist, hair and make up, photographer. It all worked out so perfectly and he was always there with quick replies to answer our questions and provide suggestions. We are very happy with how our day turned out.
Eloping in Ireland's reply:Emily & Jacob, many thanks for your kind words. It was an honor to be involved in planning such a special day in your lives. I look forward to welcoming ye back to Ireland in the future.

Planning our wedding
My fiancé and I got a crazy idea to get married in Ireland. We are both from CT in the United States, so I knew that this would be a little tricky. After some quick googling I found Stephen. From the beginning he was wonderful. Responded to each and everyone of my emails (which let me tell you was quite a few!) in a timely manner. From the recommendations to the celebrants (Yvonne Griffin was amazing) to hair (Anne Stackpoole was lovely) the makeup artists (Deirdre and her staff at body treats)and the amazing photographer Philippe Gosseau the reception dinner at the Cliffs of Moher Hotel and our bus driver. Everything was seamless! It was a little difficult planning this from 3,000 miles away, but Stephen came through and everything was absolutely beautiful. The dinner was fabulous. Photographer was so easy to work with and just sent us a beautiful gallery. The day honestly couldn’t have been more perfect and it was all thanks to Stephen’s wonderful planning and vendors that he works with. I would highly recommend using Stephen if you’re thinking about eloping in Ireland.Sent on 09/09/2019

Stephen was incredibly helpful in planning our elopement ceremony in Ireland. He was always responsive throughout the process. The vendors he coordinated for us were all top notch, and our wedding was so perfect as a result! We would not change a thing. Thank you, Stephen, for helping our dream wedding become a reality!Sent on 07/04/2019

We were not sure about using this company at first, but we did our research and found that they would be the best one to use. We had an outstanding vow renewal and Stephen as his people couldn't have done any better. My wife was amazed with all the planning from them and how smooth everything went. We renewed our Vows at the Corcomroe Abbey and would not have gone anywhere else after this experience. Eloping in Ireland, you did an OUTSTANDING JOB!Sent on 06/10/2019

Take the stress out of wedding planning...
Megan & Adam - May 4, 2019Sent on 06/13/2019
We had this crazy idea to get married in Ireland. We live in Los Angeles, California. How hard could it be?
Answer - Not hard at all...if you have the right people.
Stephen delivered on EVERYTHING we asked for, and had some amazing ideas and tips to boot.
On top of an eight-hour time difference and a type-A first time bride, everything went seamless. Every vendor was top of their game. Every location was stunning. Every suggestion was perfect.
Eloping, small wedding, even large weddings, reach out to HelpPlanMyWedding.ie - they are in a class all by themselves and set the example for how wedding planning should be handled. If you're torn on who to use, trust me, Stephen's professionalism and knowledge of the area and the industry are invaluable. Take the stress out of the day and go with them. You won't regret it.
We're so happy we found this company. We will forever hold Ireland in our hearts and are thankful that Stephen helped us plan the most magical wedding that we will never forget.

Stephen is the answer to a PERFECT WEDDING
My husband and I eloped in Ireland in April 2019 and I stumbled upon Stephen's services and immediately contacted him. He responded in a timely manner, was very professional, and always available when I needed him! He did such a great job organizing everything and his hair, makeup, photography, florist, and minister he works with are all great! I was nervous about not having a hair and makeup trial but everything came out AMAZING!!! I cannot thank you enough Stephen for a wedding my husband and I will NEVER forget. If we had to do it all over again we would chose Stephen every time! Thank you thank you thank you!Sent on 09/08/2019

Ireland Elopement Ceremony
My husband and I used Help Plan My Wedding for our Spiritual Elopment Ceremony in Ireland and all I can say is "WOW!"Sent on 11/05/2018
Right from the beginning, Stephen was full of information and suggestions while always responding to our emails as soon as possible.
Being in the United States, it was comforting to know someone from Ireland was taking care of all of our needs, from picking our Celebrant, Photagrapher, etc.
Every little detail was full of simplicity and perfection without any stress on our end!
I would wholeheartedly suggest Help Plan My Wedding to anyone remotely thinking of eloping. Honestly we couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding than the one Stephen provided for us and we will forever be grateful.
THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts, Stephen.

Erin · Married on 07/23/2018
Our trip to Ireland was originally a 50th birthday celebration until I decided we should get married too. In only 5 months time Stephen took care of everything! A celebrant, hair, make up and photographer. Then I decided the day before our wedding that I should have a limousine so we aren't driving. Not an easy task to complete on a Sunday afternoon for the 1:30 wedding the next day. Stephen performed a miracle and got us Christy from Chauffer Service who made our day perfect. For 5 hours he drove us and regaled us with stories and history of Ireland. Our day could not have been more perfect!! Thank you Stephen!Sent on 10/07/2018
Eloping in Ireland's reply:Erin & Dan, it was a pleasure to help make your dream a reality in the space of 5 months. It was great that Christy was available for your wedding. I'm delighted to hear everything was perfect.

We got this crazy idea to get married in Ireland. We live in Toronto. We couldn't have had a better day.Sent on 10/08/2018
Stephen helped us plan our entire wedding in only 8 months!! Everything was so perfect. My makeup was amazing. Our venue was breathtaking. Our flowers were beautiful. We have made a friend for life in our Celebrant. It couldn't have been more perfect. Our day was everything we pictured/imagined and more!
I must have emailed him over 100 times and he always got back to me on time and with a friendly and welcoming attitude.
My only regret is that we never got to meet him in person. He made our wedding dream come true and we will be forever grateful. Thank you Stephen, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything you've done for us. We are blessed.
Eloping in Ireland's reply:Sandra & Jason, many thanks for your kind words. Your castle wedding was amazing. All of the team commented how perfect the day was and how beautiful you looked. If ye are ever back in Ireland I'd love to meet ye for a Guinness!

Stephen of 'Eloping in Ireland' did a great job for us. We were coming from abroad, and we desired a small, intimate, elegant wedding in Ireland. Stephen helped us turn our desire into reality. He also gave us tips on Ireland, seeing as this was our first visit. We had a wonderful time, and we hope to return for another visit. Many thanks! (from Reuben & Robert)Sent on 10/04/2018
Eloping in Ireland's reply:Reuben & Robert, many thanks for the review. Your wedding day was so beautiful. I'm so thrilled to have been part of it.

Very Responsive and Worthwhile
I had to write this testimonial as I want to further support Stephen's work.Sent on 11/17/2018
My fiancé and I got a hair brained idea to get married in Ireland. We are not from there, nor have we ever been, so thus the need for a wedding planner.
There were several options out there and I had at least 4 companies give me quotes. Stephen took the time to call me, get my ideas of what I was looking, and gave excellent recommendations. He was timely, always responded to emails, and every recommendation for services were people that were helpful and responsive.
I must admit I was a little weary going with a "cost effective" person for wedding planning so far away from the US but he was by far the best investment to ensure I had all my basis covered.
Thank you Stephen for making this so easy!
Eloping in Ireland's reply:Whitney & Steve, many thanks. It was a wonderful day. Everything was perfect. Wishing ye a amazing life together.

"I thought that because my husband and I were eloping we wouldn't need a planner. I was wrong and I am so glad we went with Stephen.Sent on 10/05/2018
Every person he recommended was spectacular. Our photographer, our celebrant, and my makeup artist, were all everything I could have ask for. And Stephen had awesome recommendations on ceremony locations as well.
Whether you're planning a wedding from Ireland or outside the country I would highly recommend Stephen to any bride and groom."
Eloping in Ireland's reply:Joni & Zach, I'm so happy to read this, many thanks. Your ancient ruins elopement wedding at Corcomroe Abbey was incredibly intimate. A perfect day for an absolutely perfect couple!!
Maria · Married on 10/31/2009
Everyone was especially attentive to our every need. We have an amazing day with everything and more then we could ever ask for. They suggested items and we made suggestions and everyone was more than happy to help. We truly felt like royalty with a castle wedding, unlimited pictures, wonderful celebrant, In County Clare at Chapel of Saint Mark, Knappogue Castle. Ireland has and will forever be our heart and home away from home.Sent on 07/03/2019
