Who am I?
Hi I’m Yvonne, Creative Director at Yvonne Cassidy Weddings. I am a wedding venue stylist, coordinator and independent wedding celebrant.
Based in Dublin in Ireland, I help couples create amazing weddings.
I absolutely love weddings. From the fashion to the flowers and everything in between, but most of all I love the stories. A wedding is a love story that is played out for you.
The early days
I spent years working in administration and in my professional career I planned nationwide corporate events. This meant organising venues and catering in addition to dealing with speakers and handling hundreds of bookings. But I was unhappy working in a corporate environment and felt stifled. There was little room for creativity, and I felt like every day I spent there I was giving up a little bit more of myself.
Wondering how I was going to change my story, my mind kept coming back to weddings. I love planning events, I love seeing all the parts of the puzzle coming together, and in one of those light-bulb moments, Yvonne Cassidy Weddings was born. I quit the day job and started working on making my dream a reality.
Wedding Venue Stylist
I trained as a wedding planner and in styling I found my creative outlet. Adding that extra bit of wonder to a wedding by dressing a venue is a great feeling. Seeing the transformation from ordinary to beautiful is worth the sweat and sore muscles!! As a wedding venue stylist I work with couples to help translate the vision they have in their mind into a reality that will wow them and their guests!
Creative Wedding Design
Over time the business has developed and progressed, with me now offering a full creative design service. This covers all the design and styling aspects of a wedding, including venue styling and vendor sourcing. This ensures you have a top team of professionals working to create the perfect day for you!
Through my initial training, I found a course, ran by the Irish Institute of Celebrants which trained people to be Independent Wedding Celebrants.
Independent celebrancy appealed to me because I enjoy a good love story. No matter how unremarkable a couple might think they are, there is always something in their story that sets them apart from any other couple. I liked that Independent Celebrants were just that, independent. It does not matter what I am or what I believe, all that matters is the couple on their wedding day. This is exactly how it should be. I completed the training and have had the honour of officiating the ceremonies of some amazing couples.
So this is me! I love helping couples have an amazing wedding and I am ready to help you!
