SO it has to be said that there's a full on change in the trend of wedding venues in general, with more people now opting for something a bit more alternative.
I first visited DRENAGH a few years ago, when they were just considering setting up as a venue for brides marrying in the NW!
I thought it time to find out for myself of all the good things I had been hearing, so off I set on the May bank SO off I set on the May bank holiday to find out just what's been going on at this beautiful gentlemans residence and country estate!
After meeting the wonderful Cathy in her office, we went on walkabout to have a look at the amazing changes and transformations!
Here's my first port of call. The brand new marquee, seating 300 guests within the walled garden. This is the side view, complete with decking...receive your guests for champagne reception here! Wonderful!
State of the art washrooms and fabulous bar complete with huge dance floor prevails inside!
The marquee is set in a beautifully landscaped walled garden....complete with fountain.
So...grab a parasol and lets take in the gardens!
Herein lies one of the most spectacular pieces of architectural history....
the wonderfully romantic MOON GARDEN, available for your ceremony ( civil or religious)
And don't worry, as every eventuality of the Northern climate has been anticipated with the addition of a removeable canopy!
Wow-de wow at the view from the back of the moon garden. Isn't this just something else indeed? Now lets see inside!
Steps to say " I Do!"
With beautiful feature wall behind. Decor and florists paradise!!!!
SOSO.....moving on to the gardens beyond the maison......
Got to love this.....S
Amazing photo opportunities everywhere you turn!
SO next its off to the Clock Tower.A beautiful self catering wing of the house. Available for wedding guests or simply for a couple of days chill for you and your friends. Beautiful and full of character.
The main sitting/kitchen/dining area
And here is my very favourite room of all...
reach me my candle holder and my Pride and Prejudice.
prey thee goodnight, Sir!
This wonderful apartment is available as a two bed or four bed rental. Views from the windows are stunning and so relaxing.
lALL in all a beautiful venue with flexibility of the marquee, the moon garden and the Clock Tower accomodation. Extra accomodation is also available within the main residence.
