Bellinter House Wedding Venue

On Sunday 23rd November I went along to the Bellinter House Wedding Showcase. This venue was on my list of must see venues. If you have been following my blog for awhile you will know that I love intimate wedding venues and ones that offer a cosy, romantic and old time feel. Bellinter House definitely has these elements.

Bellinter House is a Georgian Manor and is located in the beautiful setting of the Meath Countryside. There are 35 guests rooms located in the house and a further five duplex rooms with two single story dwellings in the renovated Stables. These rooms are modern, spacious, warm and relaxing and are located next to the house.

What to expect from the venue:

Old meets new in this venue. Parts of the house have been renovated. The two blend in beautifully so you get the best of both worlds in terms of decor.

You also have the option of an outdoor ceremony. They take place under the Ancient Weeping Beech Tree located on t…

Dealz Christmas Collection

Hello, I hope your well. We are in the last stretch of the year and you know what that means, Christmas is coming and it is my favorite part of the year. I love the break from work and I enjoy spending time with my Family. I try to not give into the hype of Christmas and the pressure it can bring.

They showcased a large selection of their very fabulous Christmas collection.

Dealz are also selling Christmas cards instore to raise money for Make A Wish Ireland, which is a great cause and they retail at €4.00.

The Christmas collection covers everything from decorations, tableware, gifts for children and pets, gift wrapping, lights, gift b…

Belle Mariée Bridal

Continuing on with my Bridal Feature, another shop I have recently visited is Belle Mariée Bridal, which is located at Main Street, Athboy. Belle Marie Bridal is new to Athboy, it opened it doors over a year ago and is located in the former McElhinneys Bridal Rooms. 

I know some of you will remember McElhinneys. Fiona, the fabulous owner of Belle Mariée was telling me that she bought her wedding dress from the original shop, I thought that was a lovely story and now she is the proud owner of a bridal shop in the same location. It goes to show you never know where life can take you.    

Onto the shop itself, as with my other visits I was warmly welcomed by Fiona and we chatted away about all things bridal. Belle Mariée literally oozes elegance, the decor is French elegance. Fiona has an astounding attention to detail from the way the dresses are displayed in the window and the shop, through to the lighting, the window draping, the opulent mirrors and the luxurious seating it is very fabu…
