Destination wedding at this dream Irish venue

Raya and Michael’s Lisnavagh House wedding in May was certainly a day to remember. This 19th century Tudor Gothic house in Co. Carlow became the perfect destination wedding venue for these guys who both hail from California. It’s also a wedding photographer’s dream


Lisnavagh House Weddings

When Raya and her mother travelled to Ireland they spent five days searching for different wedding venues within 1.5 hours from Dublin. When she got to Lisnavagh, there was something magical about the place from the moment she drove in. The estate was both regal and beautiful but at the same time didn’t feel pretentious or overly formal. It was The Yew Walk that sealed the deal for her. The yew trees bow together to form an aisle. Just the thought of getting married in what looks like an enchanted forest solidified that this would be the perfect venue for them.

Outdoor Ceremony at The Yew Walk

Fast forward to the big day and it it wasn’t long before Raya was making her way down The Yew Walk to marry her groom Michael! It really was a breathtaking scene beneath the trees with all the guests there to witness a beautiful ceremony. Michael’s Uncle was also the celebrant. 

The weather was great all day too and the guests loved the drinks reception on the lawn beside the house. It was a perfect touch before the dinner and dancing kicked off in the Garden Wing of the house. Check out when the couple entered the room and went straight into the Zaffa, a traditional Arabic wedding dance before dinner. It didn’t take long before the whole room was dancing with them too, really setting the mood for the rest of the evening!
