Choosing your venue is one of the first and most exciting parts of your wedding planning. We put together some of our favourite Irish wedding venues.
In the heart of the Boyne Valley lies Ballymagarvey Village, it has such a 'home from home' feeling dating back to the 13th Century, charming and cosy. Steeped in culture and tradition with so many opportunities for fabulous photos among the surroundings. One such beautiful attribute can be seen in the ceremony room, where there are still beautiful old exposed beams and original cast windows, the original mill wheel also still remains outside. This restored flax mill caters for Civil Ceremonies, Civil Partnerships, Humanist Ceremonies and Blessings.
