We thoroughly enjoyed working with you and the outstanding work ethic, creativity, flair and attention to detail that you demonstrated were exceptional.
From start to finish you were an absolute pleasure to work with and most importantly I know the client could not have been happier with the entire execution of the event.
I wish you and your team continued success for the future and I look forward to working with you again soon in one of our properties."

"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most spectacular wedding- it was beyond everything we hoped and could have dreamed for. This is a very sacred moment in our lives, and we are forever grateful to you. Our hearts will overflow with happiness every time we remember the weekend. Thank you also for your endless emotional support, patience and your flexibility during the planning- working across the time zones is never easy and you handled it brilliantly. We loved working with you and your very professional, gregarious team. It was particularly nice to spend time over weekends with you and get to know each other better- we have gained a lovely friend :) We were feeling very emotional when the weekend was over, but have been reliving the moment ever since through the photos friends and family are sharing with us. Kind notes from all continue to flow in, raving about the weekend-the organization of the party and details - we have you all to thank for this! We appreciate all your efforts to make this a fabulous event.
Thank you again for everything Olivia "

"Olivia is one of the brightest event planners in all of Europe. She has a keen eye for detail, a creative and fresh approach to finding the new in the old and old in the new. Most importantly, once you meet her, you will have a friend for life. I have worked with thousands of people over the last 27 years and Olivia Buckley is truly a category of one and stands heads and shoulders above anyone in her industry. She is the future of the weddings and event business and I am honored to watch brilliantly soar."
Simon. T. Bailey - President & CEO of Brilliance Institute, Florida
"I didn't know where to get started in planning a wedding in Ireland, but several hours of research, numerous wedding planner interviews, consultations with my mom, and a decision matrix later we decided to bring Olivia on board. I was looking for both a friend and a professional who would listen to my ideas and really care for us. I didn't want to be just another bride in someone's books... A wedding should be an intimate experience from start to finish and I didn't want to bring just any random person on board. Choosing Olivia as our wedding planner has thus far turned out to be one of the most vital and fabulous decisions I've made for our wedding! Olivia has ALWAYS been supportive throughout the entire planning process. She has negotiated on our behalf, shared her amazing ideas, and given me guidance and support. She feels more like an older sister to me than my wedding planner. She is always available to talk and puts her brides before everything else. She has vast experience planning weddings and events so she knows various people in the industry who can help make your event even more memorable. Her work is trustworthy, transparent, and detail oriented."
Slgi Choi, US bride, Destination Wedding Ireland, October 2014
"It's amazing now looking back on the weekend & realising just how much work & coordination goes into it to have it run so smoothly. All of the guests were overwhelmed by how stunning & fabulous everything was & we have had so much great feedback from people. Thanks again so much Olivia!"
Orla & Sugi, Bride and Groom, Destination Wedding, May 2014
"Wow Olivia Buckley is a godsend from heaven!
I moved to Australia from Ireland 8 years ago, when my boyfriend proposed I knew we would be travelling back to my homeland Ireland for our wedding. Organising a wedding from afar was so difficult; we really needed expert help... After lots of research looking for the best wedding planner we organised a meeting with “Olivia Buckley Events” on our next trip home to Ireland. As soon as we met Olivia, we knew immediately she was going to be our wedding planner. She was warm in nature and so welcoming at her studio and very professional, we just knew we would be in great hands! Olivia was always so patient, accommodating with time zones and always offered fantastic advice and ideas. When our wedding day arrived we were blown away by everything. The reception room was beyond all our expectations...we were just speechless! Olivia Buckley Events made our day absolutely magical. We would never have had this beautiful wedding in Ireland without this professional support and expertise of Olivia Buckley Events. We are forever grateful to you Olivia and we just hope you continue to touch people's lives the incredible way you have ours!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
Elaine and Ben Burdass, Australian Bride and Groom, Destination Wedding, September 2014
"We could not be happier with having chosen Olivia Buckley Events to plan our destination wedding in beautiful Killarney. My fiancé and I have very hectic schedules and Olivia has made communications between the U.S. and Ireland easy and convenient. Olivia Buckley Events have done an excellent job providing us with so many vendors and options, and have made the planning process transparent so that we can be as involved as we would like throughout each phase leading up to the big day."
Ginger Demakos, US Bride, Destination Wedding, October 2014
"Having known Olivia for some time I admired her sense of style, fun and her commitment to the smaller details. I thought of her immediately when I needed help with an event that was very special to me. What I did'nt fully comprehend was the incredible drive & energy that exists in such a serene lady. My sister's wedding was an incredible day thanks in a large part to the painstaking attention to detail and time commitment made by Olivia. My family will be eternally grateful as are the staff of the hotel who loved working with Olivia."
Marie Chawke, General Manager, Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa, Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland
The feedback from the CEO team and Senior Management was great. I would highly recommend OBE for any event big or small."
