Marianne and John’s Wedding in Mount Druid

Marianne and John’s wedding was held in beautiful and unique Mount Druid, Castletown Geoghegan, Co. Westmeath. Neither the bride or groom are from the area but the venue had absolutely everything they were looking for. It was the first venue they visited and they knew immediately that it was for them. Here’s the lowdown from the happy couple!

Our wedding was held on 31st July 2015, one of the wettest days of the summer. Our one piece of advice to any bride or groom-to-be reading this is ‘give yourself one less thing to think about and forget about the weather and checking the forecast every 5 minutes – there’s no point and it REALLY doesn’t matter on the day, even if you choose a venue for its amazing outdoors. In fact, if anything, the rain keeps everyone together!’

Mount Druid is a truly special place set on beautiful grounds with a lake, over 200,000 trees and an organic farm. It’s family run and you can tell that they really love what they do. They couldn’t have been more helpful, courteous and friendly. We had 150 guests at our wedding and Mount Druid was new to everyone – and everyone, young and old, loved it, even those who weren’t sure about glamping!! The venue is so perfect with everything you could possibly need to throw a once-in-a-lifetime bash. It is beautiful as it is but you have the freedom to decorate it as you wish, and add as much of your own touches as you want. As well as designing and gathering bits and pieces ourselves, we were lucky to have some family and friends offer up their time and creative talents and that made all the difference. Looking back on these photos, it was all worth it and we’d do it again in a heartbeat. It was the most fabulous, fun and happy weekend of our lives.
