I highly recommend I Do Candle Lighting! Claire was so lovely to deal with, she even spent a Saturday morning to come to the church to meet me and go through the decor. The decor was absolutely fabulous, when I approached the door of the church on our wedding day I loved looking in and seeing the beautiful arch, fairy lights, lanterns along the aisle, the trees and more. She has great attention to detail. Everyone has been telling us how beautiful the church looked. With everything going on lately the decor lifted everyones spirits that day and made our day extra special. We are so delighted with everything and how it all looked. So happy we went with I Do Candle Lighting!! Thank you again Claire !

Clare could not have done more for us and our wedding!  Due to covid all plans changed last minute and Clare was always at the end of the phone.  People still talk about the beauty of the church even weeks later.  Clare also decorated a local restaurant where we held our reception.  She transformed it from restaurant to stunning romantic hideaway.  Highly, highly recommend booking with Clare, you won't be disappinted!



Clodagh, added 5th December 2019, Wedding 2nd February 2019

We had the pleasure of having Clare decorate our venue for our wedding.  We were absolutely blown away with everything on the day.  Every single detail was out of this world, it was like living a fairy tale.  Clare is amazing at what she does and I could not recommend her enough.  Any couples looking for the highest quality wedding decor for their big day, look no further than Clare at I Do Candle Lighting, you will not be disappointed.  Thank you Clare for everything x



Ava Branton, added 5th December 2019, Wedding 12th July 2019

Clare is amazing to deal with.  Her product and professionalism is second to none.  On our wedding day we moved from inside to outside and she had this done with no stress to herself or our guests.  Her attention to detail is to be admired.  It was a real joy to deal with Clare for our wedding and I would highly recomend her to anyone.



Ciara Carmody, added 5th December 2019, Wedding 4th May 2019

Clare was amazing to deal with, we live in Sydney so had to communicate over email and Clare was so responsive.  Our church was double booked with a confirmation in the morning but Clare had it all under control and everything was perfect!  Beautiful decor and all our guests were so complimentary.  Fantastic quality, I couldn't recommend Clare enough.



Brid Brennan, added 5th December 2019, Wedding 27th April 2019

We were fortunate to have Clare decorate our church for us.  We got married in an old beautiful church which Clare was familiar with.  She knew what would work in the venue and let us tailor our package to suit us.  She moved her beautiful blossom trees to our hotel after the ceremony at no extra charge.



Hi Clare,

Wow - the place was fabulous!!!

Thank you so much for all of the decor for our wedding on Saturday - we were blown away!  My sister had to go downstairs for something on Saturday morning and couldn't get back up fast enough to tell me how gorgeous it looked downstairs!  The room was fabulous, as was the ballroom later on.  All your little touches didn't go unnoticed so thank you!

Kindest regards,

Sinead & Thomas.


Donna, aded 6th December 2018, Wedding 16th November 2018

We booked Clare to decorate our church for our wedding in November.  It's a really small church and it was important to me the decoration wasn't overpowering, but I also wanted lots of candles!  Clare was an absolute dream to work with, helpful, friendly and responsive and on the day....WOW! So may people commented on how the church looked, it was so magical!  I would, and already am, recommending Clare to everyone!


Emma Regan Gardiner, 5 December 2018
Where do I even start to thank Clare from 'I Do' Candle Lighting. I would give 100 stars for her professional approach from the minute we booked her.  She made it so easy to put what we wanted together, literally 4 days before the wedding, nothing was a problem and made it all so simple.  The church was amazing and all down to Clare for her amazing work. Clare even fixed my dress as I walked down the aisle which I wouldn't have even thought of someone doing before hand so thank you so much Clare it meant a lot. I highly recommend to anyone considering this talented lady for their wedding xxx


Orlaith & Gerry, added 25th November 2018, Wedding 17th November 2018
Clare thank you so much for the job you did on decorating the church the day of our wedding.  It exceeded our expectations and looked stunning.  You went above and beyond to help us on the day and we are extremely grateful.  Wishing you continued success Clare, you deserve it.  Thanks again, Orlaith & Gerry x


Tazersbyrne - one of my favourite photos from our wedding day.  Our church was decorated by 'I Do' Candle Lighting and I cannot thank Clare enough.  She worked under serious pressure to get our church ready and well I think this photo speaks for itself.  It looked amazing #magical #fairytale #special #pricelessmoments


Hi Clare,

I can't thank you enough for looking after me for my wedding in Loughrea Chathedral, church was so beautiful and evrybody said they had never seen it so beautiful; I couldn't have been happier so thank you Clare.

Thanks so much to Clare for doing an absolute amazing job on the church for our wedding this week.  It was a hightlight of the day.  The church transformed into a winter wonderland.  Can't recommend Clare enough!

Amy Mahony


Hi Clare, 

I hope you are well. We're just back from honeymoon and I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for being part of our wedding. The church was absolutely stunning and I had to take a moment at the door to take it all in and pick my jaw up from the floor! The flowers, lanterns and candles made such a great atmosphere and I couldn't have asked for more. We received so many compliments on the decorations and I firmly laid the credit at your feet, passing your details to anyone who is getting married. Thank you so much again.

Fiona & Ger Byrne


"Clare, thank you so much for all of your work on the day of our wedding, and in the lead up.  You were so professional, yet friendly; I felt so comfortable going through my ideas with you, and very confident that you would deliver.  You exceeded our expectations.  There were so many compliments afterwards about the decor, and how well it fitted with Cliff at Lyons.  Thank you again.  I'm so pleased that we chose you to style the day!  Wishing you the very best in the future".

Niamh and Karl


What can I say.... I am still speechless as to how amazing Clare from I Do Candle Lighting was.... For her to do and recreate EXACTLY what I wanted in my head for my wedding, and do it exactly the way I wanted it decorated, she did it to a tee with no fuss, stress or awkwardness, she was just unbelievable and people would be silly not to hire her...especially for a stress free wedding just AMAZING... Clare you are AMAZING AND THANK U SOOO SOOO MUCH.

Ciara Cagney  


Our church decor looked amazing. Every little detail was thought of and outdone my expectations. Provided great background for photos also. Very quick with responses to any queries I had and a problem free experience from start to finish.

Roisin Higgins


Claire was amazing to work with.  From the day we booked her she was so helpful. We wanted a romantic classy day and we got just that. She turned our room into a fairytale and I will never forget that wow feeling we had when seeing the room. Her work is outstanding and we cannot thank her enough.

Louise Fahy


Over the moon! I had Clare from I Do Candle Lighting decorate the church for our big day. It looked magical and nearly every guest commented on how well the church looked. The lanterns etc look wonderful in all the photos too. Would highly recommended her. She even sorted me out last minute with our wedding candles. Worth every cent!

Audrey Rice

Clare thank you so much for decorating our church for our recent wedding! It was just so beautiful and you tailored it perfectly for the church. You were incredibly professional and helpful all day and we got so much positive feedback from our guests. Thank you again and all the best with everything xxxx

Bridget Cunningham


Absolutely thrilled with the church decor! It was so pretty and took all the stress away from me having to do it myself! I also had some decor at the hotel which was fab and made the room look magical! Would highly recommend Clare x.

Aisling Foley


I knew when I saw I Do Candle Lighting at a wedding fair that I wanted it at our wedding ceremony. Claire did not disappoint. I was blown away when I walked into the church. All our guests said the church looked amazing. Claire is so easy to deal with and will do anything that is asked of her.

Lisa Kilkenny

Could not reccommend I Do Candle Lighting enough. When I first came across the page on facebook I just had to book them for my wedding and I was so relieved when Clare had that date free. The church was out of this world, it was even better than I could have imagined. Clare was so lovely to deal with and so professional I didn't have to worry about a thing, so glad I came across her facebook page, really helped make my dream wedding a reality.  

Gina Ryan


Hi Clare,

Myself and Oisín would like to thank you for the brilliant job you did in the church on Saturday we were very impressed and it was just how I imagined thank you.
Lauragh Goggin

My brother got married yesterday and we had to have the reception at home as my mother is too sick to be in public. but I organised Claire from I Do Candle Lighting to decorate our house as a surprise when we came back to the house from the ceremony. It really made such an impact my brother was so emotional as was the whole family. Thanks so much Claire, you were like a little fairy sprinkling wedding dust!
Sinead Nic Gabhann 


Hi Clare :)

I'm so so sorry I didn't get to really talk to you properly on the day of the wedding. But I just wanted to write and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the work you did on the church for our wedding. The church looked stunning, just stunning. The amount of people that spoke to me about it (I was surprised by the amount of men :) ) You are brilliant..... Thank you so so much.

Pam & Brian xxxx


Absolutely fantastic service.  Clare went above and beyond in making sure she delivered a beautiful wedding setting for us.  The church was amazing, largely due to Clare's input with centre pieces on the altar, tall aisle lanterns with ivy, organza bows and candelabras.  She made it so easy for us and was very helpful, patient and accommodating.  Would highly recommend this service to anyone looking for the perfect setting for their big day.

Sarah & Paul Sherry

All our best,

Frances and James


Hi Clare, we just want to say thank you for the fantastic job you did at our wedding in Loughrea Cathedral. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the lanterns made the church look.

Deirdre & James


Hi Clare. Just wanted to say thank you for your great work on Saturday. The church looked amazing and all our guests thought it was beautiful. Myself and Mark were delighted and you made our pictures even better. Thanks again.



Hi Clare, I've been meaning to get in touch since our wedding in the Claddagh on 30th December. We were blown away by your work, how beautiful it was and how well it tied in with the church decor. It added so much to our day and was commented on by so many. Thanks also for helping to decorate the Oranmore Lodge. Your presence on the day was so reassuring yet non-intrusive. We wish you all the best with your wonderful business, and I hope my vote contributes to your win!  Thanks again very much,
Brona and Jamie

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for making the church look so beautiful for our wedding in Cork (Triskel Christchurch) on the 5th of April. The set up was just amazing. I am so happy we chose you to do our decorations. You were so helpful and responsive throughout the whole process :) thank you so much! I couldn't recommend your service enough.
Kind regards,


Just a quick word of thanks for your candle service at our wedding. I was blown away when I walked into the church. You were so lovely to deal with too and I've recommended you to so many of my friends.
Thanks a million


We wanted to drop you an e-mail to express our sincere thanks to you on what a fantastic job you did on the day. From the first moment we met you were very professional and full of great ideas. On the day in question you showed up early and decorated the Church to an impeccable standard. So much so that it drew many compliments from the congregation. Your service was first class and very reasonably priced. For adding what you did to our wedding day we cannot thank you enough.
Kind regards,
Conor and Elaine Fleming


Hi Clare, we would just like to say a huge thank you for making our day so wonderful. Clare is a fantastic lady to work with, her attention to detail is outstanding, our wedding day developed a theme of sheer beauty and magical bliss because of Claire's efforts, it was everything we could have hoped for. It is very easy for us to recommend Clare to anyone. Again thank you so much.

Clo and Ant


Hi Clare, We cannot thank you enough for the transformation of the church in Gort on our wedding day. It was absolutely amazing and the comments we received after on the decor in the church were testament to you. Thanks for the surprise Arch at the back..... Just fab. You were a pleasure to work with and we would have no hesitation in recommending you (as we have already done) - you have a brilliant business keep it up.

Nessagh & Fintan


I just wanted to contact you to say a huge thank you for the beautiful way that you decorated the church for our wedding. It looked amazing, I couldn't believe it when I arrived at the door and looked up the aisle. Apparently it was the talk of the Claddagh and a lot of local people came to see it. I thought you would like to hear one particular comment which I thought was lovely. One local woman said that if she had an image in her mind of what heaven looks like, it would be the way the church looked for our wedding.


Thanks very much Clare for decorating the church beautifully on our special day. I had a lot of guests complementing on how lovely the church looked. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I will be highly recommending you to my friends and family.

Lorraine Fahy


Clare decorated the church for our wedding last August. It was the best money we spent. I was blown away when I entered the church on the day. All our guests were talking about it. We didn't have to do a thing. She came and set it all up and took it away after ceremony. Couldn't recommend more highly. Thanks Clare!
