London-based international event organisers, Fait Accompli, who are regularly hired for leading royal celebrations have already sent a team to Limerick to start preparations for the celebrity wedding of the year.
Fait Accompli’s Buckingham Palace squad will have total control of the wedding of Sue Ann McManus and Cian Foley.
Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin, will be among the 1,500 guests at the wedding reception.
The celebrations will take place in a giant marquee in the grounds of Martinstown Stud on July 15. Tiger will travel on to the British Open the following day.
While the Limerick-based catering company, Master Chefs, who looked after the Michael Flatley wedding, will provide chefs, the menus and wine lists will be drawn up by Fait Accompli.
The chairwoman and co-owner of Fait Accompli, Camilla Monckton refused to comment on the McManus wedding when contacted yesterday at her London office.
Ms Monckton said: “It is our policy not to talk about our clients. I know it can be an incredibly boring policy, but it is our policy — black and white. It is one reason that our clients like us, because we never say a word about them.”
Prior to her death, Princess Diana used Fait Accompli to run numerous gala events she hosted at her London home.
The McManus wedding church ceremony will be held at Martinstown parish church where only family and a small group of friends will be present due to the size of the church.
The church has been given a total paint makeover and new lawns are being laid in the church grounds.
Sue Ann McManus met her husband-to-be, Cian Foley when they both studied at Limerick Institute of Technology where she got an honours degree in economics.
Mr Foley, who is a native of Killorglin, Co Kerry, works with the Limerick auctioneers, Chesser & Co.
