Pre & Post Wedding Events

Celebrations that last more than a day are becoming increasingly popular. Buffets and get togethers the night before the main event to live music and drinks flowing the day after. Continue the celebrations in your own unique way whether its a live acoustic set with nibbles, a buffet and band or a set meal with dj. They say, the day after is just as big as the wedding day itself. Party On….

Save on costs by creating digital invites to send to your guest list, more stainable attitude/modern for the tech savvy – a quicker response rather than waiting on the postman! More Trends Here

Beach Wedding


Much needed R&R after all the wedding festivities. Just as romantic as the main event, stay a while longer as the new Mr & Mrs. Romantic packages in the Lir Suite to include dinner, prosecco in the room, late checkout and more! So when the crowd has gone, its time for you two to take it all in and begin married life by the sea.

Our tips: Take it all in, every second. Your wedding day goes by in a flash, don’t spend your time watching your wedding through your camera, that’s what your photographer and videographer are there for. Mute your phone for the day, all the important people are there with you, any other notifications can wait.

Don’t stress about the small stuff, your venue is there to ensure everything goes as smooth as possible for you. Remember, that’s what we are experienced in.

Oh, make room for breakfast on the morning! You have a long day with lots to do…..like tying the knot!
