Planning a Christmas wedding?
If twinkling lights, magnificent Christmas trees, and lush green garlands are part of your dream theme, there are two Cork wedding venues worth checking out immediately.
Clonakilty’s Fernhill House and Little Island’s Radisson Blu Hotel have topped the list of Ireland’s Most Magical Wedding Venues for 2023.
From historic castles, homely country manors and estates, luxurious and elegant hotels, Georgian townhouses, award-winning and well-established restaurants to venues that host both ceremonies and receptions, wedding website SaveMyDay.ie has compiled the most festive-feeling wedding venues across Ireland to help couples plan their own winter wonderland weddings.
“The evenings may be darker, but the twinkling lights are brighter, atmosphere cosier, decor richer and wedding feasts more festive, making winter a truly magical time of year to get married,” says Shell Holden, Co-Owner of SaveMyDay.ie.
“With decorations adorning ballrooms to banisters, the inviting glow of candlelight, fairy lights and crackling open fires, and the chance of a delicate sprinkle of snow, there is something truly magical about saying I do in the wintertime.”
Fernhill House can accommodate wedding parties of between 100 and 300 guest, offering both wedding ceremony and reception spaces including their luxurious mansion with its antique spiral staircase, open fires, and stunning library. Winter Wedding packages include a winter banquet and a mulled wine drinks reception.
At the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, you book a wedding of any size, from ten to 420 guests. The venue’s stunning 18th-century Ditchley House boasts a sweeping staircase, large sash windows, and ornate décor, with a tailored festive ‘Holly’ wedding package for December brides and grooms.
