One of our favourite wedding venues is the fabulous Boyne Hill House on the banks of the River Boyne in Co. Meath. Set in 38 acres of stunning gardens and parklands, this picturesque country house estate becomes your very own exclusive venue on your big day. We had the pleasure of being part of Louise and Ruadhrí's big day back in July and what a fantastic day it was.
Their morning preparations began with Lorraine heading to Louise and Denis meeting up with Ruadhrí. One of the benefits of having two photographers is that both the bride and groom's morning preparations are covered. Once ready we headed to the venue for a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the Secret Garden. The Secret Garden has to rank as one of the most beautiful locations to hold a wedding ceremony. From the entrance through the iron gate, down the stone steps and into the stunning gardens, it really is an amazing setting which makes your wedding ceremony even more memorable.
After the ceremony it was back up to the old house for the drinks reception and some gorgeous finger food. This gave us time to take the bridal party back down to the secret garden for some photos. The beauty of a venue like Boyne Hill House is that everything is close by so we didn't need to bring Louise and Ruadhrí away from their guests for too long. In no time at all they were back to mingle at the drinks reception and enjoy some of the delicious canapes and bubbly.
Dinner was called around 6pm and one thing the Boyne Hill House is famous for, is the quality of the food and yet again it didn't disappoint. After the meal the crowd was entertained by one of the liveliest wedding bands around, Till Death Do Us Party, and they kept the dance floor full late into the night.
