As any bride-to-be will tell you, finding the right wedding location can be a cause of much strife and stress. And in winter, it's nearly made all the worse. It's freezing, you're freezing, and you feel slightly panicked as you wonder how on earth you'll keep your guests from turning into ice statues. However, once you have your venue picked out, the impending chill will be the last thing on your mind as you revel in the glorious day you have ahead.
When planning a winter wedding, choosing the right venue will mean the hard work is done - or, at the very least, some of it. Think romance and wind-strewn petals all in a picturesque setting that looks like it was dreamed up for your special day. Coolbawn Quay in Lough Derg, Tipperary is one such perfect venue - it has everything you need for the romantic winter wedding of your dreams.
It's all about the beautiful backdrop and those all-important exquisite details, made all the more perfect in a winter setting. Coolbawn Quay is a private destination venue for truly romantic couples to share and celebrate their love. The venue is available to book throughout the year (with the exception of a short number of days over Christmas). You and your guests will be surrounded by nature with spectacular backdrops; imagine waterside vows with chilled drinks on the deck, followed by dinner and dancing in the most magical Georgian style Pavilion with twilight views over the lake. Sounds heavenly, right?
WHAT TO EXPECT
You can choose your setting and bespoke package too. Do you want yours to take place in Coolbawn Quay's private and exclusive village of rooms and suites scattered along meandering streets and leafy lanes?
Or in their luxurious Lakeshore Pavilion with dramatic entrance hall, intimate bar, restrooms, sumptuous drawing room, and an exquisite banquet hall? It has a distinctly fairytale feel created by softly draped ivory and silver linings, twinkling lights and a profusion of flowers. It also contains a sheltered terrace, bordered by lavender beds, offers relaxed seating with views out over the private marina to the lake beyond, perfect for relaxed mingling late into the night.
And for those who yearn for a smaller, more intimate setting, wedding receptions can be hosted in the Drawing Room of the Lakeshore Pavilion. With Georgian windows, open fire effect and dimmed pendant chandelier, it's elegant, charming and incredibly romantic - perfect for a winter wedding.
With their excellent and attentive staff, Coolbawn Quay can help you create the wedding - and experience - you've always longed for. They offer a number of packages and will be happy to talk with you about all other details in the lead up to the wedding itself.
