Where to even begin in describing how much everyone NEEDS Angela at their wedding!!! I’m quite an organised person and love planning events, so never would have wanted anyone to plan my wedding for me. I’m also very detail focussed, and the more detailed our wedding plans got, the quicker I realised that I needed some help to actually execute our perfect day. Enter Angela, The Wedding PA! For the 6 months before our big day, Angela was my right hand lady and we really would not have had the day we did without her! We initially met to go over the big plans for the day and to give Angela a sense of what exactly the vision was, covering vendors, timings, themes, etc. We then met several times after that to discuss progress, items still TBC, and to make sure that Angela understood all of our needs. Over the various meetings, every minute detail of the day was covered (more than once!) to ensure that everything was absolutely perfect. Angela is so knowledgeable of the wedding industry and was always able to pre-empt any questions that I had, or prompt me on items that I had forgotten – not a single detail was missed. She was also able to help recommend vendors for some last minute items which was so helpful when you knew that you could trust that you were getting a reliable and high quality vendor without having to do all the research! In the weeks leading up to the day, Angela was in full action mode preparing a full day-of timeline (down to the minute!) and following up with all of our vendors. She even came along with us to the venue for one of our final meetings to ensure that nothing was overlooked and to help us cover off all of the last minute queries. The evening before, she was also on hand to walk with me through everything; decorations, table plans, running order for the day, photo lists for the photographer – everything! On the day itself, Angela was the absolute dream. Arriving at the venue first thing in the morning, she coordinated EVERYTHING – vendors coming and going, table settings, decoration set up...there was literally nothing we needed to worry about. Right throughout the whole day, she was on hand to ensure all of our vendors were on time and that everything ran smoothly. She even left gift bags with a wedding survival pack for us in our room! We really didn’t have to lift a finger and truly were, as Angela promised, guests at our own wedding. I quite simply cannot recommend Angela enough. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and made my life a dream in the run up to the day. I literally didn’t have an ounce of stress in the weeks leading up to the wedding because I knew that my right hand lady had me covered. It was a wonderful knowing that we were in such experienced hands with Angela, and she really enabled us to have the most perfect day. Thank you so, so, SO much Angela – I’ll need to think of another event to plan with you soon!! X

From the minute I had my first meeting with Angela she was so friendly and welcoming, she kept up to date with every little detail in the lead up to our wedding day. She was with me from 8:00 am in the morning of the wedding, had speeches and readings to hand, she dealt with absolutely everything down to pinning the buttonholes on the groom and groomsmen. Words can’t describe how wonderful she was and how calm I was because of her. She thought of all the little things that everyone forgets and even got me my own survival kit. Can’t thank you enough Angela, for everything you did, we were so relaxed for the whole day.
Prior to Angela going live with her Wedding PA business she was Chief Bridesmaid at my wedding in April 2018. From the very start of the day Angela went over and above her Bridesmaid duties (arriving earlier than I expected, unloading her car with all my bits and bobs... of which there were many...) and I can see why she is entering the Wedding PA business. Angela has a strong passion and flare for weddings which comes naturally to her.
Angela, with her hair half done, got stuck in and took the initiative to meet my suppliers on their arrival and arranged for my wedding pieces (décor, cake, flowers, dresses, jewellery etc) things to be displayed and really took a lead role (over and above what I expected); something I was expecting the venue to do for me. She even made sure I had my favourite lunch and snacks to hand.
One must remember that the Wedding Co-ordinator in the venue works for the venue, not for the Bride. I had heard this before but it is certainly very true having experienced it first-hand. She even created my own personal itinerary, to ensure the day ran smoothly for me, I really didn’t need to do anything. It really does make all the difference having someone to take care of everything you need.
Having seen what Angela is highly capable of, I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a Wedding PA, a service that I feel will flourish in years to come when people realise, and see, the added value and stress reduction this brings on a couple’s very special day.
I wish Angela all the very best in her new venture.

Have you ever thought about easing the little stresses of your wedding day by having a Wedding Personal Assistant on the day? Our photography competition winners, Ciara and Dean, used the services of Angela the ORIGINAL ‘The Wedding PA’ for their big day last week. Watching Angela in action, I could see how useful it was to have someone on hand to make sure the suppliers were on schedule, the bits and pieces were being organised, the buttonholes were put on, the guests were happy and informed, and even her complimentary survival kit was used by the hairdresser and bridesmaids. I know Ciara and Dean have already left Angela a wonderful review, so check her out if you think you'd be a little more relaxed on the day, if someone could look after most of the bits that need to be done on your very special day.
Aoibheann's Pink Tie would like to Thank Angela for the Bridal & Pink Tie Ball which raised €5.000. We cannot comment enough on the quality and presentation of the evening. The room, decor, entertainment and prizes were absolutely amazing and drew many a great comment on the night. From start to finish the atmosphere was warm, friendly, welcoming and fun.
The attention to detail was second to none and the running of the night went so smoothly and efficiently and everything went well beyond our expectations.
We would highly recommend Angela and her team as the communication and professional was fantastic.
