Stunning venue Bellingham Castle in Co. Louth

As a Co Louth wedding photographer one of my absolute favourite local wedding venues has got to be the stunning Bellingham Castle. This elegant and spacious 17th century authentic Irish castle is available for exclusive hire, making a Bellingham Castle wedding a totally unique and memorable wedding experience.

Outdoor Wedding at Bellingham castleSet at the gateway to the Cooley Mountains on the banks of the River Glyde Bellingham Castle is the centerpiece of a 17 acre estate. The estate includes a weir and a man made river island. This providing a stunning backdrop for the most amazing wedding photographs. The interior of the castle is bursting with rich history, splendour and old world luxury. Each reception room has its own character. Some rooms effortlessly draw large groups into them with their bright and airy feel, combined with spectacular furniture and décor. Other rooms are ideal for those seeking a quiet yet inviting corner. Ideal for those moments when you just want to have a good catch up with friends and relatives you haven’t seen in forever. And then there is the kitchen. Think Downton Abbey and all the staff sitting down to dinner and you are spot on. I love bringing the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom to this room for photographs. It is always kitted out with plenty of tea and coffee and cake where mothers can sit and chat about the day away from the crowds for a while.

Some rooms provide an abundance of natural light through the magnificent floor- to- ceiling windows. Other rooms just allow the most enticing slivers of light to produce beautiful low-key shots. The nooks, the crannies, the corridors, the stairs. The grand open areas, the small quiet areas, the choices for great photos are endless. Outside we have the grand entrance and driveway, the fountain, mature gardens, rivers, islands, bridges. And of course a magnificent castle as a backdrop to again provide us with everything we need to produce the most amazing photos from your wedding day.
