We got married in Moyvalley and the venue recommended Mary to us. We are so happy they did! She was a pleasure to deal with. Great communication from the start. She took my ideas and made them into something magical. I was blown away by not only my bouquet but the bridal party and all the other flowers arrangements we had! We got so many compliments. There was no way my mother in law was leaving any flowers behind! She took them all. I have also kept my bouquet to preserve, its just too beautiful. Mary went above and beyond what I even pictured, they came out so much better! Thank you for making our big day beautiful. We can't wait to share the photos with you!!

Mary provided our flowers and decor (lanterns, white carpet etc.) for our wedding last month. The room looked gorgeous and she was a pleasure to work with. Would recommend.

Mary was a pleasure to deal with and an absolute professional. As well as flowers for the bridal party, she provided the décor for our humanist ceremony and dinner reception in Kilshane House and everyone was blown away! We got so many compliments on the floral arrangements and cherry blossom trees and couldn't have asked for more. Would recommend without hesitation.

Mary and Finesse were absolutely amazing. We live in NYC and communicating through email can be tough but she was great and worked with me to pick out the most beautiful flowers. They also added room décor that was stunning. Everything was absolutely beautiful.

Wow where do we begin! To say we were blown out of the water by your floral arrangements and the decor would be an understatement! Mary from Finesse Weddings work added so much to our day; it was really the icing on the cake. I loved everything, I don’t even know where to begin. Cloughjordan is an amazing venue but they added such an extra level and wowed everyone! There were so many compliments, I even had people come up to me during the meal asking if they could take some of the table flowers home!! My bouquet was amazing, it was exactly what I wanted and suited perfectly! As for the hoops, perfect, exactly as I had pictured and the flowers and the colors Mary selected matched our colors so well.

Massive thanks to Mary and her team at Finesse weddings who we booked for flowers and ballroom decoration for our wedding on 5th May 2018 at the Heritage Killenard! Mary totally understood our vision for flowers and decoration from the beginning and delivered 110%. From their weekly florals at the Heritage and the professionalism and genuine nature of Mary when we first met I knew I was in capable hands. The flowers at the church were just breathtaking and really made the church look stunning. The quality of the flowers and the the quality of the arrangements were just outstanding. The bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets were no different. I cannot stop admiring the beautiful photographs of our flowers and bouquets! The colours really complimented and accentuated the colour of the bridesmaids dresses. The colours were so rich and vibrant and look amazing in the photos. The amount of flowers and quality was just superb. Mary found the house and church in the middle of nowhere and set up the church in true professionalism! I was delighted the way Mary and her team then moved all the flowers from the church and used them to decorate the Ballroom which ensured we used all the flowers and showed them off as best as possible! The fairy lights added lovely atmosphere to the ballroom and the taking down of the fairy lights in front of the stage before the band was seamless! I would highly recommend everyone to book Finesse for their flowers and room decoration! Thanks so much Mary and team, from Rachel & Andrew

Finesse Wedding - Professional, easy to deal with and excellent execution, just perfect. Mary and her team were hired to décor a number of events for our Indian/Irish wedding in Kilkea Castle on the 31st March and 1st April 2018. This was a bespoke project for Mary and her team as it included a Hindi marriage ceremony and an Indian Henna and Sangeet night. From the first moment we met Mary, we knew we had the right person to bring together all the elements of Indian/Irish wedding. Mary was calm, efficient and listened to every detail of our requirements, and believe me we had a lot of requirements. Mary took all the stress away from the bride and we trusted Mary every step of the way. Mary has an eye for detail and a vision which is a pure gift. The Henna and Sangeet décor was full of amazing colour and our guests loved it. The ceremony on the 1st April 2019 took place in the gardens of Kilkea Castle in a marque and included the Indian Altar constructed and designed by Mary and her team. It was beautiful and exactly what we had wished for. Mary, we are so glad we had you to complete our décor for our bespoke wedding. We highly recommend you and your team, professional, efficient and you get the job done! One of the best suppliers that we dealt with my far and we will be ever grateful for pulling it all together. Lots of love Darrell and Naleeni

The ease & stress free approach Mary & Willie provide added to the day we will never forget. Mary & Willie provided the church decor, stunning lanterns at the entrance, floral pew ends, altar arrangements, bouquets and button holes filled with the most fantastic array of flowers - exactly to our taste and liking. For the hotel, we opted for apple blossom trees and they provided a real WOW factor giving the room a classy & tasteful look and feel. We couldn't recommend & thank Mary, Willie & the team at Finesse Weddings enough.

It is not possible to speak highly enough of the team at Finesse Weddings. From the moment we met Mary, it was clear that we had made the right choice. She took the time to find out what we wanted and then put together the perfect package. On the big day, the team transformed an already beautiful location into a truly magical venue, with the absolute minimum of fuss. If you want to add that extra special something to your wedding day, look no further than Finesse!

It is only 2 days after my wedding and even though I'm rushing to get prepared for my honeymoon I had to leave this review as soon as I could in the hope I will help other couples make one of the best decisions to make their "big day" perfect. Mary and Willie did all my flowers and a small few extra touches and they actually surpassed my admittedly exceptionally high standards. The flowers were out of this world and was so bountiful..worth each and every penny. When talking to supplier make sure you are comparing "like with like". My bouquet was v large and had loads of peonies. It was not bulked up with cheap generic flowers. Mary is such a perfectionist too. My flower girl's wand had a lovely little star and feathers which were a huge hit with her and with me. This was all Mary's doing and was an example of her going "above and beyond" to make everything perfect. Overall Mary and Willie's work made my whole wedding seem so luxurious and extra special. Picking them was the best decision I made in the wedding planning

There is a reason Finesse Weddings have 5 out of 5 ratings. Simply amazing. When planning your wedding, you deal with numerous suppliers and are sometimes chasing them for confirmation on things, be it flowers are ordered, songs being played or design of cake and so on. This is one of the more stressful parts of the planning process because you spend all your time just chasing people. With Mary in Finesse Weddings, there is no chasing. We met with Mary once, just once. The next time we saw Mary was the morning of the wedding. There was emails between the 2 encounters for when we wanted advice on items that she doesn't even look for. If you want somebody to take the stress out of things for you and give you that comfort knowing you have got the best then honestly look no further than Mary in Finesse weddings. We always said when dealing with other suppliers, why can't they be like Mary.

We can't thank Mary and her team enough. The level of professionalism is a credit to them. No suggestion or idea was ever a problem. Mary had a vision for our wedding and couldn't have been any more perfect. Our eyes lit up when we walked into our room and saw the decor. Mary transformed the room into everything we could have wished for. The flowers were amazing and the attention to detail left us speechless . I would urge all couples to go see their showcase as they won't be disappointed with the service and decor

Mary is a true professional and a really lovely person to deal with. She gave us some great ideas without being pushy. Although we didn't see Mary or her team on the day, we knew we had nothing to worry about and we had complete confidence that everything would be as planned. The room looked fabulous and we got lots of compliments from our guests. I would recommend Finesse to anyone who is looking to add that little extra glamour to their day!

We had the absolute pleasure of booking Mary and her team for our wedding. She was a dream to deal with, Making suggestion's I hadn't even thought off knowing exactly the wedding I had in my mind. She came down to the hotel the night before to start setting up, She was so organised I didn't even have to go and check the room on the morning of the wedding. The room looked stunning and we couldn't have been happier. If we were to do it all over again, Mary would be to of my list of people to book! Would highly recommend going down to the showroom as well, We actually got to see some of the decorations she used on the day!

I just wanted to express our gratitude for your beautiful work at our wedding at Village of Lyons on 4th January. The place looked absolutely magical! You took what was an already pretty venue and enhanced it's beauty while also reflecting our tastes and personalities. You understood it was the simple and elegant touches that made the decor go a long way! Both the ceremony and reception spaces looked beautiful - we are still getting complements from guests weeks after the wedding. I also want to thank you so much for your professionalism throughout the entire process. I felt that your attention to detail, and your consistent contact had put us at ease for the actual wedding day. I would highly recommend your services to anyone whether it is a wedding or other special event, and trust that you will always do a wonderful job.

Hi Mary, Just a short note to say thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding. Our day was amazing and it was more than we could have imagined and that would not have been possible without you. The church took my breadth away. I didn't think it could look so amazing. The Arlington room was out of this world with the flowers and candles. I can't express how grateful I a hing so easy for us and you have an amazing talent. I wish I could do it all over again! I really hope I have the need for you services in the future!

We had the pleasure of working with Mary and her team for our wedding in Tankardstown House in July and I couldn't recommend them more highly. We availed of their on-the-day service and it was more than we expected. Mary was at the end of a phone weeks before the big day, ready and willing to answer any or my questions or worries. On the day itself, she was an absolute life-saver, dealing with every little detail and always with a smile. We couldn't have done it without her and her team. Hopefully our paths will cross again. Thanks again.

Mary and her brilliant team provided a few different bits and pieces for our wedding in July. In the church Mary Beautifully decorated the church with fabulous little lanterns on the pew ends and a crisp and elegant drape on the un-used pews. The candelabras provided a classy and cosy atmosphere to the church and overall her work made the church so elegant and personal. At the reception Mary provided the amazing fairylight backdrop and atmospheric uplighters. They really added so much to our venue. She finished off the tables with crystal topped centre pieces which looked absolutely amazing. They added a touch of sophistication and class that was much appreciated. Mary was so professional and nice to work with. Both Mary and her team really went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect on our day. You can be sure that no matter what you need Mary to do she will get it done without any hassle. I really cant thank her enough.

The professionalism and expertise Mary and her very able Finesse team executed on the day of our daughter’s wedding last July 2010, had a very calming influence on all our families. The attention to detail employed by Mary and her team at the beginning, during the church ceremony and later at the hotel was truly remarkable. Through their efforts we had a most enjoyable day and wonderful memories for ever more.

We got married on the 14th of August at Carton House. We were looking for the 'Wow' factor for our reception room, and having spoken with and visited various other suppliers, the moment we met Mary from Finesse Weddings, we just knew that she was the lady who was going to make everything perfect for us!. Mary is an absolute Gem! Like myself, she is a true perfectionist and you only have to look at the quality of her decor items to see this. Everything in our reception room - from our linens, candelabra, chair sashes, up-lighters, stage design -surpassed all of our hopes and dreams and we can’t thank Mary enough. Thank you for looking after us so well and for making everything so easy and enjoyable! Orlaith and John

We booked Mary and the team for our wedding at the Station House for Sept last year. From start to finish I found Mary gave an extremely personal and professional service. She never failed to answer my email or phone messages and she really made sure she provided the package that suited mine and my new husbands style and budget. We didnt know whether our ceramony was going to be inside or outside so she helped develop plan A and plan B which would only be decided on the day. She and her team took it all in their stride and I found the flowers, chair and general room decor were absolutly stunning. I cant recommend Finesse enough!! Thanks Mary!! X

We had our dream wedding in july 2010 and We will be forever greatful to Mary and the team at Finesse for the part they played in creating it. After our first meeting i knew they would create something that would amaze us all. They transformed every part of our wedding and their attention to detail was exceptional. The Finesse team became a part of our family in the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. It felt great to be able to relax on the day knowing Mary was keeping a watchful eye over everything. Mary and her team created the most beautiful day we could ever have wished for. We can not recommend Finesse enough, we researched and met with other planners and decor specialists and Finesse are le creme de la creme.
