Nestled in the medieval village of Castlebellingham in County Louth along Ireland’s Ancient East, Bellingham Castle is an elegant and spacious 17th Century authentic Irish Castle available for exclusive hire, to allow you become King or Queen of your very own castle for a truly memorable experience.
It’s a perfect wedding venue in the eyes of the photographer because not matter the weather, you are spoilt for choice with beautiful drawings rooms and basement bars as well as the rolling gardens with the glorious afternoon light.
Here’s a beautiful highlight from Caroline & Ben’s elegant and fun day at my fave Bellingham Castle
Caroline & Ben chose to have a winter wedding and made the absolute most of the limited but glorious light on their wedding day. When planning your big day, wedding timelines are everything but most especially during the winter months when the light drops from 3.30pm onwards. The best way to make the most of your wedding day is to eliminate travelling between locations as much as possible. The ideal way to do this is to have getting ready, ceremony and reception all in the one location, or if getting married in a religious building is important to you, choose the nearest church to your reception location.
With so many indoor options for wedding photos at Bellingham Castle, it was so easy and convenient to make the best of all of these opportunities. A great time to get those photos is during dinner call. Usually wedding couples have 20-30 mins while guest are being seated which is more than enough time to make the most of these great little nooks for some quiet time and intimate portraits.
