Grainne & Romain 28th June 2014
Romain and I got married in Jack's on June 28th this year. When we got engaged, we did what most couples do - we went through the motions and looked at possible venues to hold our reception. Nevertheless, being a local Cromane girl, marrying a Frenchman, I always knew that we would never find a venue like Jack's. Jack's is special and with guests travelling from both home and abroad, we wanted that certain ' je ne sais quoi'. We knew that through Jack's we would give our guests something truly unique and unforgettable.
Planning a wedding can be stressful but to be honest I took a backseat and let the experts, Brian and Pauline, look after every aspect of our day. Our requests were never an issue. Brian took care of everything from the French onion soup to the cheese boards to the French liqueur that was to be added to the sorbet. He even had to contend with my family who wanted to set up televisions both in the restaurant and marquee. I am so grateful that he was able to accommodate them as their 'surprise' was such a special part of our day. Pauline was wedding co-ordinator extraordinaire. She decorated both restaurant and marquee, managing to think of doing the little things that I would never have even dreamt of considering. Brian and Pauline worked tirelessly both on the day itself and in the lead-up to our Big Day.
On the day itself, we didn't have to travel far-from Cromane Church to Cromane beach for the photos and straight to Jack's where we had that very important time for meeting our guests in the garden. We were able to relax, sip champagne and enjoy the fabulous selection of canapes in the glorious sunshine as J.P. serenaded us all.
Local guests had a great sense of what was to come but it was the reaction of friends and family, who had not yet experienced what Jack's had to offer, that proved to us that we had been perfectly right in choosing Jack's to host our reception. Comments that stand out for me would be ' undiscovered gem', 'an exclusive venue', 'spectacular location', 'Michelin- star quality food', 'precision detailing', ' faultless service' and my personal favourite ' Best Wedding Ever'!
We enjoyed every moment of our Wedding Day and as the sun was rising the following morning, we didn't have to walk home, (as planned), as Brian had organised for us to stay in one of their houses next door. It was the perfect end to the perfect day. Thank you so much Brian, Pauline ,J.P., Jonathan and all the staff in Jack's for making the day such a wonderful success.
