Highlighting Local Businesses. Many of our local success stories pass under the radar. Here we intend to put this right with a section interviewing local businesses and highlighting their highs and lows.

Siobhan Bennett | Connemara Weddings


Siobhan grew up in fast-paced Kildare, but after a summer spent in the West she was smitten! That was over 15 years ago now, and even after travelling to the far corners of the world, has succumbed to the undeniable call of the coast and the Wild Atlantic Way.

"“I think it's the slower pace of life, easy – going mind -set, the stunning scenery and the numerous adventurous to be explored, that kept drawing me back, and now I wouldn't, possibly couldn't live anywhere else."

“Working as an adventure sports instructor brought me into the area, which I'm still involved with, but I moved on to managing adventure races. Between my organisation skills and seeing the number of people travelling to get married in beautiful Connemara, I was saw there was a gap in the market for a Wedding Planner”


Siobhan can help you with as little or as much help for your big day as you need or would like.

"Our aim is to try and help make their day as perfect as possible with a big importance on trying to make it, and the planning, as hassle free as possible for the couple. Many couples just want to meet so that they know they are going along the right track. Others get us to organise as much as we can for them as they live further away, so we keep them updated with details, costs and plenty of images. What has also become popular is to hire us to just work the day of the wedding, making sure that everything goes to plan with out the couple, families etc having to deal with any issues that may arise. Living in the area means that we know plenty of hidden spots for some great photos, know all the great musical talent in the area and of course have plenty of contacts"

So if you are looking to have a magical Wedding day in Connemara, Connemara Weddings is your one stop shop for planning, organisation or just some friendly advice.
