Advice for brides planning a wedding
“The best advice I could give any bride planning a wedding is to keep it simple, intimate and remember the true meaning of the day is love. It is easy to get carried away with all the choices out there but the most important thing to remember is that it is your day and you should have it the way you want it and not feel compelled to keep in competition with other people’s weddings. Also the day passes so fast so try to relax and enjoy every moment.” 

How was it working with Listowel Arms Hotel?
“Listowel Arms Hotel surpassed all our hopes and dreams. it has a wonderful atmosphere with the old victorian décor and is full of warmth and friendliness. they have a knack of making your day so unique, personable and overall memorable. the outside and inside of the hotel was exquisitely decorated, not a detail missed and everything that i wanted and more. they truly have a flair for weddings.”
