Days of Fun, Relaxation & Beauty
The celebrations begun few days prior to the wedding when the group descended on Cong where they embarked on some of the castle activities included a boat ride on the Corrib, golf, falconry and the Award-winning spa was well sampled by the ladies! While the rehearsal dinner was hosted in the castles splendid George V dining room, dating back to early 20th Century when the future King George V visited the castle. The setting was so fitting for the future Mr & Mrs, who will become King & Queen of Ashford Castle for their wedding day anyway!
Their Wedding Day
Kelly & Tom’s wedding had an elegant & classic style fulfilled through a colour palette of white, ivory and champagne with a hint of gold.
Amazing floral arrangements included orchids, roses, lilies, freesia, hydrangea and gold gyp while the bride’s bouquet included the first of the season peonies.
The wedding ceremony took place outdoors on the back lawn against backdrop of the castle and the splendid champagne reception followed in the the Prince Of Wales Bar.
As a Pre-dinner surprise a dance group performed high octane Irish dancing followed by the bride & groom’s first dance.
The bride was so beautiful and elegant in her champagne lace couture Trumped style dress with a cathedral length veil. The groom was very becoming in his Tux as well!
Wedding guests followed a formal black-tie attire for the celebrations.
A Foodie Wedding
Prior to dinner everybody feasted on canapes including flambé organic salmon in Irish whiskey. Dinner was served in the splendid Connaught room and begun with organic goats’ cheese, followed by prawn bisque. A choice of 3 main courses including melt in your mouth fillet beef & was washed down with choice of 4 wines and champagne.
But no dinner would be complete without a choice of delicious chocolate desserts!
The couple’s couture wedding cake did not disappoint with a splendid sugar paste flower cascade and delicious flavours of chocolate heaven & luscious lemon.
It was a real pleasure to work with Kelly & Tom! We wish them nothing but love and happiness after Their Dream Came True In A Luxurious Irish Castle!
