Interview with: Mary Grace Lynch and Stephen Chircop

How and when did Dreemz Planners get started?
Dreemz Planners was established in October 2010; we both worked for a UK company that promoted weddings in Malta but there was no personal touch. We both noticed that there was a gap in the market for UK and Irish couples that would like more than a 30 minute wedding ceremony at the Registry office, so Dreemz was born.

Which destinations does Dreemz Planners offer for weddings abroad?
Malta and Gozo.
Why should couples choose Malta or Gozo for their wedding abroad?
The Island of Malta is situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, surrounded by magnificent scenery and blue skies. The Maltese Islands have a vast variety of venues, so whether you want to have a romantic wedding on the beach with spectacular views of the sunset or a fairytale wedding in one of our palaces these islands can offer you this and much more.
Whatever you decide to do the atmosphere across the islands is carefree, relaxed and happy, but efficiency is the driving force behind every wedding. Malta is the perfect destination for your dream wedding, where you will be spoilt for choice.
Known as the Hidden Gems of the Mediterranean, Malta and Gozo tied first place for the best climate in the world, with an average 5.2 hours of sunshine a day, even in December.
What’s more, you will not have to learn a foreign language as everybody on our islands speaks English as a second language.

The possibilities are endless; from castles to beaches, gardens, sea views, historical venues and amazing churches.
As wedding planners, what parts of a wedding can you help organise?
Together we plan your perfect day. We’ll book all the suppliers and place deposits, look after all legal paperwork and open files with the registry office. We are with you all the way and at your disposal any time you need us.
We will draw a budget plan to follow, but still make sure you have the perfect wedding day and show you ways you can save money. We offer a free site inspection if you wish to come over to Malta to visit your venue, and we will coordinate with all suppliers and do a check list to make sure all items will be delivered on the day, as ordered.

We’ll also meet and greet you at the airport for your arrival to the Maltese Islands, and book any services your guests might need.
