If a fairytale castle is the vision for your wedding day, then Castle Leslie Estate is the prefect venue for your wedding celebrations. It is truly one of the finest luxury estates in Ireland. Located in County Monaghan, on 1,000 acres of undulating Irish countryside, dotted with ancient woodland and glittering lakes. It is one of the last great Irish Castle estates still in the hands of its founding family.
Located in the village of Glaslough, Co. Monaghan, the Estate is only 80 minutes from Dublin, 60 minutes from Belfast and yet a million miles from anywhere… your wedding guests will be blown away with the character and charm of Castle Leslies surroundings.
The Pavilion at Castle Leslie Estate is a delightful space overlooking Glaslough Lake and you have the option to get married on site, which makes for a relaxing day for you and your guests.
Castle Leslie surroundings are ideal for your drinks reception with the option of your guests enjoying the interiors of the old world grandeur and character. Or if the sun is shining they can sip their champagne in the stunning gardens, looking out towards the shimmering lake.
The interiors and gardens of Castle Leslie are a photographers dream too, large grandeur rooms with lots of lights, make for an easy portrait session should we need to take your photos indoors. Then when you step out into the gardens you are spoilt for choice for places to capture your bridal party photos, family photos and couples portraits.
I love to take my couples away for 15 minutes to capture some beautiful portraits together, we’ll take a stroll down to the lake and give you time to take in your first moments together as husband and wife.
After your guests have enjoyed their afternoon cocktails, they will then move into the grand pavillion at Castle Leslie, this light filled space can hold up to 260 guests comfortably.
After dinner and whilst the band is setting up, should the golden light appear, I know the perfect spot to head to for some breath taking golden hour portraits.
Its time party and Castle Leslies shining white dance floor, graced with its fairy light canopy makes for a dream setting for your first dance.
