The Perfect Romantic Wedding Destination

When planning a wedding, perhaps it’s not the ‘trendy’ thing to up the romance factor; many are afraid it can look cheesy or overly sentimental, but it is a day that celebrates love. And, well, there’s nothing quite as wonderful as that, so why shouldn’t you have the romantic day you’ve always dreamed of? Luckily, you won’t have to travel far to experience a destination that has loveliness in spades.

Incredible surroundings

Marlfield House Hotel, long?established as one of Ireland’s most romantic country houses and situated just one hour south of Dublin is such a place. Set on 36 acres of stunning grounds it is truly an oasis of tranquillity?and will transform your big day into the fairytale you’ve dreamed of. ?This hotel is renowned for its luxurious-yet-cosy surroundings; the reception rooms, bedrooms and State rooms are all exquisitely furnished with beautiful open fires, antiques, paintings and scented flower arrangements.

This is a special day in which you and your guests deserve to be pampered, and the charming staff will be on hand to do that from the moment you arrive.

The day will start with champagne cocktails and delicious canap’s in the garden or the house. Dinner is served in the candlelit, frescoed conservatory dining room overlooking the parterre garden and manicured lawns. And how could we forget to mention that you’ll be dining on multi-award- winning dishes? Herbs and vegetables from Marlfield’s kitchen gardens and meat and fish sourced locally are prepared by the team of talented chefs. And following dancing till the early hours, a cheese and port feast can be served. Awake from a wonderful nights slumber and rejoin your guests for a feast at breakfast or scrumptious bites in the afternoon – BBQ’s, buffets and suppers on either the day before or after your wedding can be arranged in either the house itself of its infamous Duck Restaurant.

The finer details

 

Marlfield is also registered to host Civil Ceremonies, and humanist and spiritual ceremonies take place in the house and gardens. Having a more intimate gathering? The Print Room is perfect for smaller wedding parties of up to 55. And remember, this is your day, we can tailor it solely to your needs and wants. From the Drawing Room to the Library and Conservatory dining room, all rooms are?flexible; they aim to make your day totally unique and personal, with gorgeous extras included, from the floral arrangements – using flowers from the gardens for the tables – ?and throughout the reception rooms.

And don’t worry, any of the other all-important details can also be catered for in the locality: Marlfield is situated one hour south of Dublin and just one mile outside Gorey which has excellent choices in hairdressers and makeup artists with three four-star hotels and bed and breakfasts, providing ample accommodation choices for your guests just minutes away.
