A guide to choosing a winter wedding venue that surpasses all of your expectations.

Celebrating by candle light, sipping mulled wine at your drinks reception, and cuddling up with your new partner by an open fire – there is something magical about a winter wedding.

Fairytale setting

Leave the outdoor wedding venues and rustic barns to the summer weddings; winter is all about gothic castles and fairytale settings. Lough Rynn is one of Ireland’s most luxurious castle hotels, set on the shores of Lough Rynn surrounded by over three hundred acres of breathtaking scenery, providing a spectacular location to say ‘I do’ in the depths of winter.  Every bride wants her wedding to be as memorable and as magical as it possibly can be, and Lough Rynn Castle is the complete package.

Seasonal menu

Winter weddings call for comforting food and cheer that will warm your guests from the inside, so opt for a wedding venue with a menu that reflects the time of year. Lough Rynn’s Winter Wonderland Package offers an arrival reception of tea, coffee, homemade cookies and mince pies, providing the perfect seasonal welcome. Tucked away from the rest of the world, the estate is an entirely unique setting that is matched only by creative menus and impeccable service ensuring your wedding day is everything you dreamed of.

Exquisite backdrop for your wedding photographs

An important aspect to look out for when choosing your winter wedding venue is whether the venue has beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces for taking your wedding photographs. Lough Rynn’s glistening lake and frost-topped rolling lawns provide the ideal backdrop for capturing the romance of winter in your wedding photographs. If you’re very lucky, it may snow, and even a little rain can add to the atmosphere. After capturing your outdoor wedding photographs, move inside, where the luxurious interiors of the 19th century castle, complete with festive open fires, require no decoration.

All under one roof

Although winter weather can make for stunning wedding photographs, often poor weather conditions mean your guests find it difficult to get between your ceremony location and reception. Having everything in one venue, including accommodation, means you can relax in the knowledge that all of your guests have already arrived and are there for the duration. Lough Rynn Castle is a stunning venue for your wedding celebration – The Baronial Hall is the ideal location for a civil ceremony, accommodating up to 130 guests featuring an enormous Inglenook, hand crafted fireplace and many original features of the castle from the early 1830’s.

Lough Rynn are offering an all inclusive package for Winter Weddings for only €68 per person, for more information or to sample the atmosphere please contact the Sales Department – tel: 071 96 32700 email: or visit
