Victoria and James – 25th April 2014 – Catholic Wedding at Santo Domingo church, Benalmadena with Reception at Sunset Beach Club

Wedding Benalmadena SpainMyself and James just wanted to give you the biggest thank you. Our wedding day was perfect. I know every couple says this but our day was truly perfect. I put so much of this down to you.
I was able to relax on our wedding day knowing the running of the day was in the most capable hands.  Having you there that day meant we were able enjoy every second of our day without thinking the run of the day. Yourself and Neill were fantastic that day and words are lot enough to express our thanks.
As you know there is so much organising in a wedding and having your wedding in another country only adds to that. Between you and Janet I never felt any extra stress. I knew ye were always there to reassure me or answer any random question. I can honestly say having you was the best decision we made.
The attention to detail on our day is still being talked about by our guests. The praise for you came from every single guest and they are a very tough group to please, as you probably guessed by the menu options!!!
Every aspect of the day was just as we dreamed it would be.
A quick mention of my flowers. WOW is all I can say.
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts
Vickie and James Keating

Leontia and Andrew – 5th June 2014 – Wedding Ceremony and Reception at Sunset Beach Club

Wedding Sunset Beach ClubHi Kerry, I just wanted to email you before we go on honeymoon.  Andrew and I both had the most amazing day and couldnt have asked for it to go any better. We want to thank you and Neil for making it so special and for everything running so smoothly. All our guests had a brilliant time and we are all so sad it’s over. You and Neil did a fantastic job, and we are both so grateful. Bob, Chloe and Sharon were absolutely outstanding.  Thank you for recommending them to us.   Now its on to the honeymoon in Cancun for hopefully a bit of relaxation. Many thanks again, love from.  Mr and Mrs Cooper x





Claire and Paul – 6th June 2014 – Catholic Wedding at El Salvador church, Nerja with Reception at Hotel Balcon de Europa
Wedding Nerja SpainI just wanted to say to you and Neil that we are so grateful for all your help in the 18 months running up to the wedding (dealing with my hundreds of emails so quickly and occasional panic about church documents!) and particularly for all your efforts on the day. The day went so smoothly, neither of us had to think about a thing except to enjoy it! You seemed to have everything under control from afar which was very reassuring, especially for such a nervous bride! It just could not have gone better than it did.
To anyone thinking of having a wedding in Spain, I could not recommend highly enough the Hotel Balcon De Europa as a reception venue, the staff are amazing and the food is delicious. The terrace itself is like a dream venue – absolutely spectacular. We will never forget it!
For us, what really made the reception unique, and very Spanish, were Dani’s flamenco dancers. It was a really magical touch, and they were absolutely fantastic.
Thanks again for making our wedding the best day of our lives. Hope to meet you both again next year when hopefully we will be back to beautiful Nerja! I can see from Facebook how busy you are at the moment making other couple’s dreams come true….keep up the amazing work!!
Best wishes
Claire & Paul O’Donnell  xxx

Aine and Gearoid – 7th October 2014 – Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the Hotel Balcon de Europa

Weddings Nerja Spainhi kerry.
just a email to thank you and neil for everything you guys did to make our day last week the best day of our lives.
not 1 second of 1 minute went wrong last week.everything exceeded expectations if we had to give you positive feed back it would be 110%.
our friends and family were blown away by everthing.
i had guests in front of me with tears in their eyes saying how much they enjoyed themselves and grateful for being invited.
neil was a diamond on the day and realised things were going a head of schedule so he organised for the drinks reception to start 15mins earlier.
ian anderson was a saint at the blessing,
i had old school irish catholics telling me it was the most moving wedding ceremony they were ever at.
i felt sad saying good bye to bob long as both myself and aine felt we made a friend for life and the photos he has already sent through are amazing.
the hotel were so professional with francesco at the meal and oliver in the yuppy bar leading the way.
i was so impressed with the balcon on the night i asked my brother who worked in the hotel industry in ireland for many years ” can you get this service in ireland “. hes answer was “yes but it would cost you alot of money” .
i dont no were to start with double cocktail , dave and steffi made the day and made the night from making people cry to andrea bocelli at the ceremony to rocking our world into the small hours
they were fantastic.
as for your self kerry when people came up to me asking how i managed to organise such a terrific day i said it had very little to do with me i just went on kerrys recommendations of people she works with.
i fell i owe you a debt of gratitude for organising our wedding to being more than we could ever imagined.
so thank you and thank neil.
the whole experience was so special
aine and i sat for a meal in el avalon over looking nerja on friday night and as the moon came over the mountains and the fire works came up from feria down below i found myself getting emotional.
last week was the week of our lives.
thank you kerry for everything
kind regards gearoid. x x

Jana and Anthony – 17th October 2014 – Catholic Wedding at El Salvador Church with Reception at Torres de San Juan

Wedding Nerja SpainMarried life is going great, although the harsh reality of being back in work coupled with the fact it’s absolutely lashing rain outside is quite depressing. We’re already looking at booking flights back to Nerja in the new year for a little holiday 🙂
Again, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help throughout the year. You really made everything flow so smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. All our family and friends were saying they had such a brilliant time and were complimenting yourself and Neil at how the day went without a hitch. All the best with the rest of your wedding season and I hope you and Neil have a ball on your trip to the States this Christmas!

Emma and Kieran – 19th October 2014 – Catholic Wedding at El Salvador church with reception at Marinas de Nerja

Wedding NerjaKieran and I want to thank you all for making our wedding day (Oct 19th in the Marinas de Nerja) so special, we couldn’t have done it without all your help.
Kerry & Neil from the first meeting in Dublin end of January this year both Kiran and I knew we had made the best decision going with you as a wedding planner “Celebrations in Spain”. From that initial hour meeting we had the majority of questions Kieran and I went with from high to very low level details were all answered.
Within that one weekend in Dublin Kieran and I had questions and concerns answered. You had recommended Bob Long as our photographer, Ian Preston as MC, music & DJ from the welcome drinks to the early hours of the morning and also arranged our food tasting date in The Marinas De Nerja in May. Thank you so much 🙂
Kieran and I are very organised but you were super organised from the start. We really appreciated this and that’s why we worked do well together.
Kerry & Janet, throughout the 10 months we dealt with you via email and the meeting in Nerja in May you were all so professional, helpful, friendly and patient with the numerous questions we had.
You kept us on track in terms of deadlines, payments and outstanding items. We couldn’t have organised the wedding from Dublin without your input and help.
The wedding day was amazing from start to finish and all guests commented on the hard work you guys put in. It really paid off when the day went off without a glitch.
Kerry, Ian and Bob worked great together on the day and all of your inputs were greatly appreciated. It was a pleasure to have you there on our special day.
Kerry will you pass our regards onto Eva in the Marinas De Nerja. The food was fab, room setup was amazing and the staff in the day were great.
Please post this on your Facebook page and we would highly recommend Kerry Vear-Smyth as a wedding planner & tag me viagra generika günstig online kaufen. I’m sure the guests will add a few comments too 🙂
Thank you and it was a pleasure.
Emma & Kieran xxxxxxxx
