Did you know that at Castlewood we cater for Civil Ceremony Weddings?
Last December saw us host our first Civil Wedding, and after party, when Nicola and Kyle Sommerville chose to mark their special day at Castlewood House with their families.
Having arrived the day before the ceremonies, the wedding guests settled in with a traditional Castlewood Afternoon Tea. On the morning of the wedding the girls went off to have their hair and makeup done in a local salon, and of course had sandwiches delivered to them by Brian, which helped with energy resources for the long day ahead.
Mid-afternoon, on a beautiful Dingle Winter Day, the soon to be Mrs Somerville, Nicola, descended the main staircase to be greeted by Kyle her future husband. The Civil Ceremony was held in the dining room, which had been specially set up for the event, and looked beautiful with wedding flowers and candlelight. Music from a local harpist, added a romantic air to the whole event. Witnessed by close family and friends, Nicola and Kyle exchanged vows and officially became Mr and Mrs Sommerville.
As the Bride and Groom settled into the Drawing Room to toast the occasion, our Dining Room was quickly turned around, and made ready, to serve Dinner. Brian had worked with the Bride and Groom to create a menu that cater for each guests’ individual needs.
After dinner speeches and drinks finished off the celebrations after which the whole party retired to O’Sullivan’s Courthouse Pub for a real Irish Party with traditional music.
A now world famous, Castlewood Breakfast, was had by all the following morning, before a leisurely departure and good-byes were said. We are looking forward to seeing Nicola and Kyle again soon in Castlewood House Dingle.
