Meghan and Michael’s wedding in Kinnitty Castle

Initially Meghan and Michael had booked the lovely Ashley Park House to be their romantic wedding venue. But since the numbers of guests grew, they decided to celebrate their wedding in Kinnitty Castle, in Co. Offaly.

Having fallen in love with Ashley Park House in Co. Tipperary, Meghan still insisted to get ready in the charming bridal suite of the 18th century country house B&B, which gave us some beautiful backdrops for bridal portraits and preparation shots.

From Ahsley Park House we went to the slightly hidden church of Ballinahinch. In order to make it easy for people to find the wedding venue after mass, the way to the wedding in Kinnitty Castle was signposted. However, the signs only said: “To Meghan and Michael’s wedding”, which was a bit misleading, as the bridal car from Heritage Wedding Cars Adare ended up driving around in circles, as none of the passengers nor the chauffeur were familiar with the area where the church was. In the result the bride arrived 40min late for the ceremony, a fact, that would have made any groom nervous…

Well deserved!!

If the waiting made some people sweating they could relax after the lovely ceremony and cool down over a cone of ice cream from Rockfield Ice Cream. The last would have also made my day on the way back to the wedding in Kinnitty Castle…

We were lucky with the weather as it was raining all morning and throughout the ceremony. But at our arrival in Kinnitty the clouds seem to slowly brighten up and even allowed some beautiful evening sunlight to brighten up the beginning of a fantastic party to celebrate Meghan and Michael’s wedding in Kinnitty Castle…
