One of the many perks of my job as a wedding photographer is the incredible wedding venues I am lucky to visit & experience. Last Christmas, I enjoyed being part of Sarah and Andrew’s winter wedding in the incredibly impressive Tankardstown House.

Nestled in the heart of the Boyne Valley in Co. Meath, about an hour’s drive from Dublin, Tankardstown House comprises of an 18th Century Manor House and a beautiful Orangery.

The Orangery – Tankardstown House

The Orangery hosts the ceremony and transforms into a great dining room, which can hold up to 230 guests! Your pre-dinner drinks reception happens above the orangery in the wonderful Manor House drawing rooms.

I love asking couples what made them choose their venue & for Sarah, her Mam recommended it!

“My mum Anne suggested Tankardstown House and I’ll be forever grateful that she did. We love the country house vibe and it was decorated immaculately for our Christmas wedding. The Orangery was the perfect venue for our low key ceremony then it was transformed for our reception. The staff there are incredible and made us feel so welcome, and so at home, every time we visited. If you’re thinking about having your wedding at Tankardstown House, do it!”

First Look Wedding Photographs – Tankardstown House

Tankardstown has beautiful grounds for a couple of photoshoots, with a spectacular walled garden, which is particularly ideal for a first look, as you are secluded.

Sarah and Andrew decided on a First Look, which was a beautiful experience to capture. First Looks are a great use of time, especially for winter weddings when it gets dark quite early. It’s an opportunity to get the majority of your photoshoot done.

Wedding Suppliers – Wedding Tankardstown House

I consider myself incredibly lucky to work with fantastic suppliers, and Sarah & Andrew’s wedding was no exception!

Ellen from Pretty Wild Flowers made the most unbelievable dried flower cloud, which cemented Sarah & Andrew’s wedding vibe, as she explained!

The look and feel stemmed from the incredible dried flower cloud that Ellen from Pretty Wild created for us.

It was ethereal, romantic and really captured the feeling we wanted on our wedding day”

Lucy Kavanagh was in charge of the ceremony tunes and was fabulous as always.

The Bugle Babes had the pre-dinner reception hopping, and everyone danced the night away to the infamous Spring Break—if 80s music is your thing, you have to check these guys out!
