As a Grade A listed building, thiis exclusive wedding venue in Northern Ireland is an architectural heritage that the government protects from alterations and modifications. Some of the notable features of the manor are the Moon and Orbit gardens, a century-old woodland, a 19th-century Italian garden, and a historic fountain inspired by Italy’s Villa d'Este.
Another precious feature of this Northern Ireland wedding venue is its Walled Garden that dates back to the 18th century. In this part of the estate you can also find a permanent marquee that sits up to 275 guests for a banquet.
Outdoor: The Moon Garden and Orbit Garden are favourite spots for an outdoor ceremony. These gardens date back to the 1960s, showing Chinese and Arts & Crafts influences. The Moon Garden is famous for its thick brick wall with a huge circular entrance that lends a view to the estate’s gorgeous woodland.
If you want a more free-spirited and youthful ceremony, go ahead and hang those buntings and yellow lights somewhere above the estate’s wide open woodland for an outdoor ceremony. This manor wedding venue in Northern Ireland has rich forest grounds - a perfect location for a festive ceremony and reception outdoors.
Indoor: If you’re looking for a safer, indoor option for the ceremony, the Main Hall of the Georgian Mansion House is a perfect choice. It has old brick walls, antique furnishings, and a grand staircase that makes every part of the hall photogenic.
It sits up to 120 guests and offers a view of the estate grounds. We consider it as a perfect venue for small weddings since it has a very intimate ambiance, with enough rooms for all parts of the wedding.
The mansion house has sufficient areas for the reception and photographic opportunities too. You can use the library, the staircase, and just about any corner of the house for your wedding photos. What’s great about choosing the mansion house for your wedding is that all parts of the day will be held in locations that are just steps away from each other.
You can also hold the reception at the marquee in the Walled Garden that is fully equipped with a dance floor and other equipment for a fun-filled party. Meals are fully prepared on site too.
Aside from all that, this Northern Ireland manor house for weddings provides terrific catering services for your big day. Meals are fully prepared in-house and you’ll have a wide variety of menu options to choose from. Your guests will be welcomed by drinks, skewers, soup, asparagus wraps, and some other sumptuous appetizers upon their arrival.
The main menu is nothing less than grand, complete with overflowing drinks, several meat options, soups, and desserts. The in-house chef can even prepare a vegetarian menu upon request. You literally have nothing to worry about when it comes to the grand feast that comes after the ceremony.
