"We have retained Ailbhe Cronin of Appleberry Press for several high-profile projects that required both an intrinsic artistic quality and an innate understanding of the look and feel of the finished piece.
Two of these projects involved original illustration for both the Irish and Tanzanian passports. We were delighted with both the process and the output and both documents were recognised internationally for the quality of design.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Ailbhe and her team for any project, no matter what the stage."
Wil Byrne, Absolute
"Ailbhe I have to tell you the stationery has been one of my favourite parts of the whole wedding preparation. I've really enjoyed the whole process- thank you so much for sticking with me and putting up with all my tweaks. You've been fantastic!!
I wish you could hear some of the feedback- it's been unbelievable. We have all been inundated with calls and texts telling us they are the most beautiful/prettiest invitations they have ever seen and they must have taken some serious effort.... little do they know!! Everyone is talking about them, they have never seen anything like them.
"Thanks so much..........
Cannot wait to show people the invitations, they are just beautiful and so unique......
You did such a fantastic job!!!"
"I first came across Appleberry Press when I received the most stunning invitation to my Brother's wedding, I knew it was all my soon to be sister in laws influence. I instantly knew this was who I was going to get my invites from because their attention to detail and creativity was like nothing else I had seen. Our initial consultation with the team was so easy and stress free. When it comes to wedding invitations there is so much to choose from but Maeve guided us in the right direction. Your invite sets the tone for your whole event and I got so many compliments on our invites. I couldn't recommend Appleberry Press more and we will be using them for all future family events!"
"Just received the package - absolutely phenomenal, totally bowled over and delighted with the finished product! Thank you so much, I know Caoimhe will be delighted!"

"I don’t know where to begin. I cannot recommend Appleberry Atelier highly enough. Ailbhe was an absolute dream to work with; her attention to detail and creativity surpassed any expectation I could have had. No request was too big or too small; Ailbhe has the patience of a saint for putting up with my annoying indecisiveness. I’ve never experienced customer service like it. I absolutely adore our invitations and was so excited when they arrived packaged to perfection and tied with a bow. Our guests only received our invitations yesterday and both my fiancée and I were inundated with calls and texts commenting on how fabulous, unique and personal our invitations are. So thank you for being able to make all our ideas happen on paper in such a pretty way! Ailbhe and Jane make a great team providing a professional, efficient and very friendly service. Their enthusiasm and passion for their work was obvious from the very beginning. "
"I was dealing with Ailbhe Cronin who was extremely helpful and lovely to deal with. We are so delighted with the finished product and received so many compliments!
Thanks again for all your help!
"I can highly recommend Appleberry Press for any stationery requirements having worked with Ailbhe and the team on many projects. It is always a fun and exciting collaboration and the quality of product is high end and the service throughout the process is professional friendly and prompt.
I love working with Appleberry Press and look forward to working on more projects in the future!

"We really can't thank you enough - from our invitations to the place cards, everything was perfect and completely fit our vision. You were all wonderful to work with, creative and professional. I felt so comfortable giving you the reins in terms of design and you always nailed the vision, even when I didn't know exactly what it was I was hoping for :) You do incredible work, and one of our favorite gifts was actually a beautifully framed copy of our invitation - something we will cherish! Thank you so much, again, we're your biggest fans!"
Sophie & Billy, Dromoland Castle
"We just got our invitations last night when we got home and WOW!!!!!!!!!!! I know I asked for you to keep it a surprise for us, but we've been getting a lot of sneak peeks because all of our guests have been sending us pictures and telling us that they are the most beautiful invitations they've ever received!
We both are so bowled over with how beautifully they came out! Incorporating the ceiling of the gold room was such an ingenious touch, and I just can't get over how amazing it all looks together. It perfectly captures the feeling that I wanted to convey, so thank you so, SO much to all of you for all of your time and effort on this project. It means so much to us, and we really appreciate it."
Rachel & Thor, Ballyfin House
"There is truly no one more talented and kind hearted than Ailbhe. Not only did she and her team listen attentively to our ideas, but made them even better than our dreams! She really has the touch of a fairy - making everything magical and perfect. She is always so responsive, patient with changes, and on time with all the designs. I wish everyone had an Ailbhe in their lives! "
Sarah & Paul, Virginia, USA
"Ailbhe & her team create magical stationary suites for brides that truly turn their wedding into an enchanting fairy tale. Using Ailbhe for our wedding stationary was the best vendor decision we made for our wedding. Our guests still say that they have never received a more beautiful, elegant, and memorable save the date and wedding invitation. They miss no detail and the quality of their process and printing is unparalleled. If you’re looking to find a fairy godmother, look no further! "
Elizabeth & Matthew, Dromoland Castle
