A Beautiful Wedding At The Luxurious Adare Manor

Kathleen & Dustin travelled from the USA together with over 200 guests to seal their love with A Beautiful Wedding At The Luxurious Adare Manor, Ireland. #beyondeverything.

The two day wedding celebrations at Adare Manor began with a day full of activities for guests on the resort including falconry, whiskey tasting, golf, afternoon tea and a trip to the Cliffs of Moher. That evening the fabulous Carriage House on the resort played host to a welcome party for all of the guests followed by a gourmet rehearsal dinner.

The Wedding Style

The couple opted for a classic and very romantic theme, infused with elegant nuances and a hint of glamour. Adare Manor was the perfect setting to achieve the couples classical, luxurious wedding style. It provided utmost sophistication through lush flowers, fine china, luxury linens, and their carefully-chosen colour palette.

Wedding Day Attire

The black tie dress code added great glamour & style to the occasion and fitted perfectly with the overall very elegant vibe of the wedding.

Unable to leave anyone out the bride and groom opted for a large wedding party of 9 beautiful bridesmaids and 9 handsome groomsmen.

The radiant bride looked so beautiful in her elegant couture lace dress with amazing detail – “Amal Clooney meets Kate Middleton”. The dress was designed by renowned Texas designer Michael Faircloth.

The groom did not miss out in the style stakes shining like a star in his Tom Ford Tux.

In keeping with the very elegant occasion the bridesmaids wore dove grey full length boat neck fitted gowns.

A Floral Celebration

The bride & her Mum’s absolute passion for flowers was evident throughout the wedding from the brides stunning bouquet of Roses & orchids to the magnificent floral arch which greeted guests at the church door,the floral church aisle and the grand ballroom adorned with silver candelabras of lush hydrangea and roses.

Gourmet Food

Kathleen and Dustin held a pre dinner cocktail reception where the champagne flowed and their guests enjoyed the charming sounds of Jazz trio ‘Van Heusen’.
The delicious 5 course dinner included Prime Irish Fillet of Beef and Fillet of Salmon beautifully served on fine bone china plates almost too lovely to eat. While the dessert of Praline Choux Bun was melt in your mouth!

The wedding cake was special on it’s own and definite eye candy. In keeping with the classic, stylish ambience the splendid cake was frosted in delicate embroidery with lush layers of flowers between each tier. The scrumptious flavours of chocolate baileys, lemon zest and red velvet ensured there was hardly a crumb of cake remaining!


The day was so splendid with glorious sunshine that guests were led by a Bag Piper from the church to the reception & even many of the ladies in their high heels couldn’t resist the wonderful opportunity to stroll the grand avenue back to Adare Manor.

One of Ireland’s top wedding bands, the 12 piece Bentley Boys ensured the dance floor was full all night long .
As a surprise for all including the groom the Bride & Dad did a choreographed first dance with lots of fun movements!

A beautiful wall of fresh flowers was the backdrop for some fantastic, fun photo opportunities for the guests. The party photographer had a very busy night as guests returned for countless photos in front of the stunning flower wall!

We enjoyed every minute of planning ‘A Beautiful Wedding At The Luxurious Adare Manor’ with Kathleen & Dustin and wish them the very best for a long & happy future together.
