Ask a question
Describe the best wedding that happened 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 #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
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’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
When one of our couple cut their cake with a chainsaw as the groom was a tree surgeon - cake was flying everywhere!!

The combination of the lake, the woodland and the tipis
What part of your business are you most proud of?
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, have done something right!
