It's that time of the season, where the luck of the Irish is just around the corner and what a perfect way to acknowledge this event by featuring an Irish wedding. As part of their Patrick's Week Special, Fly Away Bride featured Louise and Ian's wedding that took place at the Castle Durrow. What used to be a Country House in Durrow, Ireland in the 1700s has turned into one of the most sought out Castles in Ireland to acquire as a wedding Venue. This castle has everything that could make any couple's wedding day unforgettable. Their banquet hall manifests a luxurious essence with their wooden doors, dim candle lighting, chandeliers, and French doors that open up to the private terrace. The backdrop isn't to bad either with a beautiful garden and closed off courtyard creating a relaxed atmosphere.
What perfect way to celebrate Louise and Ian's Irish heritage by holding their venue at this hidden gem, the Castle Durrow. The young London couple were engaged within one year of meeting one another and shared a common heritage and interest of Ireland. Being that their families are from different parts of the world, the two made it a priority to find a venue easy for family on both sides to travel to, ironically enough that happen to be Ireland at this unique Castle. Their Irish heritage was important for this couple and the Castle embodied everything they wanted to capture in their vintage style wedding.
The bride, Louise, gave one piece of advice; and that was to thoroughly research vendors before relaying on word of mouth recommendations, and the internet is the most useful tool when it comes to planning a wedding. Louise and her wedding planner clearly did essential research needed for this majestic wedding because everything from the venue to the table settings embodied this Irish Vintage Wedding to a "T".
Hopefully, this Irish wedding will bring this young couple years of luck and prosperity in the journey they take together. They certainly began their adventure in the right place!
