Wedding and Commitment Ceremonies
The ceremony is a celebration of your love and commitment to one another that you share with family and friends.
Whether it be a church, civil cermony, a humanist ceremony or whatever you choose; we have the most beautiful venue. Maybe you’d prefer to mix it up a little by doing the legal stuff in a registry office and then have a blessing here.
Flexibility: You can choose anywhere but our favourite spots are on the lake shore down by the castle, in the garden or in the large newly refurbished west wing which has a spectacular skylight. The house gives you more control by not having to worry about the weather.
The choice is yours.
Traditional Church Ceremony
There are a number of beautiful churches and chapels of all denominations in the area.
Picturesque and historic Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland churches are within a couple of minutes drive. Many of our brides fall in love with the pretty stone cut chapel of Ballymote Church. For larger weddings, the Cathedral in Sligo is a beautiful setting. Killoran Church, Rathbaron is a favourite C of I option.
Your civil ceremony must take place Monday-Friday under a fixed roof. We just love the newly refurbished west wing where you shape the ceremony with your music and readings. The guests are seated on luxury French Gold Camelot Chairs, before you begin your ascent up the aisle.

Humanist Marriages, Vow Renewals and Civil partnerships
This is a popular alternative to a civil ceremony which can also be held on a Saturday. Humanist ceremonies are all about a couple celebrating their love for each other and making a commitment to one another in the company of those people who are important to them. This is done with appropriate, well-chosen words, readings and music in a beautiful venue.
