Testimonials & Media
''Your Wedding is all about YOU... the beautiful couple. MY job is to pull all the jigsaw puzzle pieces together for you, so the magic can happen.''
Below you will find Video Testimonials from some of my wonderful LBGTQ+ clients, after helping to plan their weddings for them.
Rainbow Weddings have also been very lucky to have been covered by lots of media outlets over the years (National Press, Magazines, Radio and On-line Websites) as we have become firmly recognised as Ireland's number ONE choice for LBGTQ+ wedding planners. All of these can be found in the Media section below:
Daniel & Eoin's Testimonial
''We went to Daragh late in the game when preparing the wedding ourselves became too stressful with increasing difficulties.
He came and removed the stress, he worked with all the suppliers we had worked with, had people he could work with if there was anything missing, smoothed any difficulties with suppliers, and was a pleasure to work with.
He was able to manage the time pressures, family, venue and all other issues in a way that meant our day went entirely smoothly and is still (to be a cliché) one of the best days of our lives. He made what was becoming a stress into such a pleasure.
He is worth every penny. We should have gone to him earlier. Highly recommended.''
Stephen & Eoin's Testimonial
My partner and I had a fantastic wedding day and we both feel Daragh played a big part in making sure it went off without any issues. We first met Daragh in 2017 to initially plan our wedding and he provided great guidance and support during our early plans. Due to COVID we had to postpone the wedding twice but Daragh provided great insight and helped us move the day on both occasions seamlessly. We finally got married this Summer and Daragh helped execute the big day and was always present to make sure all the vendors knew what they had to do. We highly recommend Daragh to anyone looking for a wedding planner to help arrange everything but also to help make sure everything runs smoothly on the big day.

Anne & Graine's Testimonial
"Daragh planned and conducted our wedding ceremony with exceptional professionalism and commitment, to the very final detail. No stone was left unturned to ensure our very special day went as smoothly as possible.
From start to finish, he personally made us feel so relaxed knowing that everything was under control. We would never have managed the degree of detail that he undertook.
He was like a family member, everyone loved him and felt his strength and energy throughout the whole time.
We cannot thank Daragh and his team enough. x."
''I'll be honoured to be your Wedding Planner and help deliver you the greatest day of your lives, with love, enthusiasm, empathy and excitement.

As Ireland's very first LBGTQ+ dedicated Wedding Planner, Rainbow Weddings is proud to have
attracted a LOT of media attention both in Ireland and across the World....take a look for yourself at some of the interviews, documentaries, Q&As and articles about us, over the years:
The same-sex marriage referendum in Ireland gained attention around the World. In Australia, an international, award-winning programme called Date Line, created a short documentary on Rainbow Weddings to investigate the impact of the law change in Ireland. Watch it HERE.
Highland Radio in Ireland requested an interview with me (Daragh Doyle) about Rainbow Weddings to discuss the changes that have taken place across things like venues, wedding suppliers and Irish people in general, since the same-sex referendum. Listen to it HERE.
The Ray Darcy Show on RTE Radio 1 in Ireland requested an interview with me (Daragh Doyle) about the state of play with the booming Wedding sector in Ireland post-Covid. Listen to it HERE.
