Wedding Date : March 31, 2010

A Day to Remember!
Helen and I wanted our wedding day to be special as all couples do. We wanted our friends and family to surround us and help us celebrate. We had hoped to marry in a sunny tropical island so we and our guests could enjoy the wedding as part of a family holiday. We had considered various options and Malta and wedding co-ordinator Sarah Young, Y Plan Events was recommended to us by a friend. We decided to investigate and what a treasure this turned out to be!
From the moment we made contact with Sarah, any wedding worries or anxieties we had flew out the window. The fact that we were a same-sex couple made no difference to Sarah. She put us at ease and was extremely approachable and open to our ideas and offered alternative solutions to suit our budget. Every detail was arranged via email. We didn’t have to lift a finger other than to press the send button. This suited our busy working lives.
As impressed as we were with Sarah and her team’s preparation and creativity we were blown away by the setting in real life and the accessibility to everything from our Hotel which was just a pathway from our wedding venue.
We had arrived a little earlier than our family and friends to attend to the usual last minute details. And I mean these details literally only took minutes as Sarah and Lisa had everything so organized. When our guests did arrive we could see by the looks on their faces how impressed they were too. We could tell this was going to be a holiday and a wedding never to be forgotten.
As a team Sarah and Lisa presented as extremely professional with an excellent eye for detail. They made us feel so welcome and so special. So much so that on the night before the wedding all of our family and friends were able to get together for a very special pre wedding dinner and the best venue in St Julians was made available to us.
Our wedding was all we had dreamed of and more. We were treated like royalty. Everything was planned to perfection and that is exactly what the day was – PERFECT!
The ceremony took place on the balcony of a beautiful, scenic and romantic Villa. We sampled exquisite food and the best of wines were free flowing in the Villa itself, which overlooked the Bay. From the beginning of the ceremony to the last dance our guests were treated to the best food, wine and entertainment Malta had to offer.
Just in case we could forget what an amazing day our wedding was, the very next day Sarah met us in person with photographs that we will never tire of showing off to those unfortunate to have missed our happy day. And the organising didn’t end there; two days after the wedding Sarah had organised a boat trip. This boat trip was unlike any you are likely to experience in Ireland. We boarded a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ type boat which took us to the Crystal Caves and the Blue Lagoon. Almost everyone from the youngest, aged eight to the oldest, a little older than that swam in the beautiful clear blue water.
To this day, almost three months later, our friends and family are asking when are we returning to St Julians so they can join us for another holiday to remember!
From the moment we decided to have our wedding in Malta to the moment we arrived back home in Ireland Sarah Young and her team made our wedding an event neither us nor our family and friends will ever forget. If you’re trying to make decisions about who is going to help you plan your wedding, look no further than Y Plan Events. Helen and I cannot express enough how, because of Sarah and her team, we were the most stress free and blissfully happy blushing brides you’re ever going to meet!
Thank you so much Sarah and Lisa and everyone who made our day so memorable.
