Ballymagarvey Village is one of those places that gives you that tingly excited feeling. It’s the stuff of fairy tales, and is a truly exceptional wedding venue.
When I first met Mairead and Gareth, and heard all about their plans, I just knew it was going to be a great day…and it didn’t disappoint! On arriving at Maireads mum and dads house, I was greeted to a lovely relaxed household. Everything was calm and on time. Mairead’s organisational skills were very evident…even her lovely dog was dickied up with his bow tie! Her colour choice in bridesmaid dresses was very on trend, and coordinated great with her fabulous flowers. Make up, hair, bubbles and craic took centre stage as everyone beautified themselves for the day ahead.
A Dapper groom met me at the beautiful St Teresa’s Chapel, where Mairead and Gareth tied the knot in a lovely personalised service.
The journey to Ballymagarvey was surprisingly shorter than anticipated, and before we knew it, Mairead and Gareth were relaxing and enjoying the day with family and friends.
As a wedding venue, Ballymagarvey Village has everything a bride and groom could wish for. On your wedding day, Ballymagarvey is exclusively yours, and the attention to detail is exceptional. You have the use of a variety of rooms, all of which are exquisite. Your main reception is held in a fabulous banqueting hall, which you access by strolling through the open courtyard of Ballymagarvey, which in my eyes has a hobbit type feel to it.
Ballymagarvey Village is a photographers dream. The buildings, the walkways, the small lake, streams and lantern lit driveway…all of it makes for exceptional backdrops to your wedding photos. Happily, Mairead and Gareth were keen to explore the many beautiful locations around the estate, and we had great fun during the bridal portraits…even if I did almost fall into the lake …eeek!
Ballymagarvey as a venue is beautiful…just look at the detail in each of the rooms!
Just before the meal, guests were treated to some of the funniest speeches I have ever heard…all best men speeches are definitely not equal!!
After dinner, Mairead and Gareth headed outside for some evening shots, which were laced with fun and frolics…just look at how happy these two are!
Finally, Mairead and Gareth kicked off their after party with an epic 1st dance, surrounded by their closest friends and family…The day was fantastic from beginning to end
