Former Irish Voice and editor, April Drew, is helping couples from all over the world plan their fairytale Irish castle or manor house wedding in Ireland via a new website and magazine that launched this week called Weddings in Ireland.

It’s no secret that Ireland’s luscious landscapes and alluring locations make it one of the world’s most romantic wedding destinations. Until now, planning a wedding from abroad on the beautiful Emerald Isle proved to be a difficult task.

World-renowned skateboarder Tony Hawk and his wife Catherine shared their wedding day with Weddings in Ireland.

“We live in North County San Diego, lots of sun and skate parks, however, I would take a gloomy Irish morning over sunshine any day,” shared Catherine after her dreamy Irish wedding to Hawk in Adare Manor in Limerick which was organized by West Coast Weddings.  

Weddings in Ireland was launched by publishing house Drew Media this week and is working with some of Ireland’s most exclusive wedding venues and suppliers in the country.

The business is the brainchild of Co. Kerry native Drew, who is also responsible for four other wedding titles in Ireland including Ireland’s only same sex wedding magazine, Irish LGBT Weddings. Drew planned her own Irish wedding from New York and found it challenging to do it from 3,000 miles away.

“I found it very difficult and overwhelming planning my own wedding from my desk in New York. I had not attended many Irish weddings and would have loved a resource like Weddings in Ireland to have guided me through the whole process. To have someone at the other end of an email in Ireland with the expertise required to plan a wedding from another country would have been worth everything to me,” said Drew.
