Our Venue of the Month, Bellinter House are holding their summer wedding event on Sunday, July 8th, and to celebrate the occasion, they have given us a midweek overnight stay for two with dinner to give away to one lucky reader.

Running from 2-5pm, the summer event will be presented by none other than wedding expert Franc, who you probably know well from shows like Say Yes to the Dress, Brides of Franc and Franc’s DIY Brides.

If you're a style-conscious couple looking for a venue with unique character, that oozes rustic charm and ambiance, you'll want to get down to Bellinter House to check it out. With the opportunity to hear sought after advice from one of the top Irish wedding planners, this is the perfect chance to get your wedding plans in order.

On the day, you'll be greeted with a glass of bubbles and some delicious canapes created by their award-winning chefs. You can take a walk through their public rooms, and enjoy the stylish, bespoke design captured by one of Ireland's leading interior designers, Suzie McAdam. With the venue set up for a wedding, you'll easily be able to picture yourself hosting your dream day at Bellinter House. Their wedding team will be on hand to offer guided tours through their grounds and explore everything the venue has to offer, including their refectory suite (the main banqueting suite). The venue is a blank canvas for you to transform for your day, so be sure to come with an open mind to see how you can incorporate your ideas into the beautiful Georgian house.

If you're thinking of having an alternative or less traditional wedding, make sure to squeeze in a visit to the nunnery with its arched ceilings and ornate pillars - it's a great location for an indoor ceremony, or you can choose to say 'I do' in their beautifully kept gardens.

On the day, Franc from 'Weddings by Franc' will be on hand to share some unique wedding tips and to give you advice on how to personalise your day to suit you as a couple.

There will be fabulous prizes for attendees on the day, including a private consultation for one couple with Franc. There will also be decadent spa treatments in the Bathhouse Spa, Newbridge Silver wear inspired Afternoon tea in their Library and an overnight stay in one of their deluxe suites along with a delicious four course meal from their award-winning kitchen, up for grabs.

Bellinter House has an energy that needs to be experienced to be believed so it's worth a visit if it's on your list of dream venues. The summer wedding event is free to attend, but you do need to register for tickets on Eventbrite. If you need any additional information about the event, the Bellinter House weddings team are on hand to answer your questions, if you email [email protected] or call 046-9030900.
