Surrounded by ancient woodland and with a beautiful lakeside setting, Finnebrogue Woods is the perfect place to relax and celebrate your big day.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Don't ever think an idea you have is too wacky; just go with it! It is your one day where you can really express yourselves. Also don't stress the detail too much. If you can't get the right shaped napkin rings, does it really matter??

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

When I see the pure joy on not only the couple's faces, but of all the guests, young and old, all letting their hair down, having the most wonderful time. That's when I think, yep, I've done something right!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Jaw-dropping, exclusive, relaxed, unique, enchanting

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

When one of our couple cut their cake with a chainsaw as the groom was a tree surgeon - cake was flying everywhere!!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our Dexter Chilli Beef Wraps

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

That's a difficult one as each and every wedding we have done at Finnebrogue Woods has been really special. We give our couples quite a free rein so if they would like to do something out of the ordinary that we can cater for, we are all for it! We had one couple get married across the lake on small jetty with all their guests looking on from the tipi site on the other side of the lake. We will remember that one as it is so different.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Couldn't possibly say...

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

The combination of the lake, the woodland and the tipis

What is your venue's most unique feature?

On the jetty over the lake by an old oak tree

What part of your business are you most proud of?
