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.

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 the lawn to the front of the house.

They have a dedicated Wedding Fairy in Bellinter House, who is on hand to guide you on every aspect of your special day.
You can have exclusive use of the house for your wedding day, this means that no-one else will have access to the house on the day of your wedding.
If you like the sound of this the cost for exclusivity is €1,500 Sunday -Thursday and €2,000 Friday, Saturday and Bank Holidays.
Your wedding dinner and entertainment will take place in the newly renovated "The Refectory". You can seat up to 200 guests here. The draping and neutral tones in this room are beautiful and the natural light that flows in from the garden sets a soft background. A bar is also located in the room, which is always a plus for me as it means guest don't have to wonder off in search of the bar.
You can also book "The Eden Restaurant" for a more intimate wedding with seating of up to 130.
Bellinter House also has a spa known as the Bathhouse Spa. You could visit here on the lead up to your big day by having a "Ladies Day Out" or relax as Mr & Mrs after your big day. Also your wedding package includes a free wedding make-up trial in the spa.
There are various packages on offer and they cater for all seasons, budgets and tastes. With a midnight feast included in all packages this is definitely required. I think we all know about the midnight hunger hit when at a wedding.
On arrival you can choose from a number of drinks i.e. Bellini's, Cocktails, Prosecco and Mulled wine, which accompany the various canape choices that are also available.
Vintage Afternoon Tea is another option for your guests on arrival. I saw this being served at the Wedding Showcase to people having afternoon tea and It all looked so delicious.

The day after your wedding, let the celebration continue with a BBQ or dinner. Various packages and options are also available for this.

A big thank you to the lovely Emer Smith for showing me around on the open day. All couples that attend got the one on one treatment which provided them with a chance to chat and ask questions.
It is worth saying that Bellinter House is more then just a Wedding Venue. You can go here for a night or weekend away. Why not host a special occasion at the House i.e. christening, bridal shower, engagement party or birthday party held in one of their intimate dinning rooms. You can also experience their vintage afternoon tea or relax at the spa. whatever you do at Bellinter House you will truly enjoy the beauty of it all.
