Full Description
  • Magnificent, private and luxurious surroundings, the promise of exclusivity with the highest standards of service – The Carriage Rooms offer all this and so much more. Set in picture-perfect surroundings, The Carriage Rooms are simply the best and promise a fairytale wedding venue that only host one special occasion per day, so you can be sure of our undivided attention at all times. From reception through to dining room, bar and function area, we provide a different area for each part of your day. The experience begins with a drinks reception where guests can mingle freely throughout The Carriage Rooms and surrounding grounds. In The Walled Garden, think lawn games and Pimms in hand, while indoors enjoy the amazing vistas from every room. The Grade B listed building houses our beautiful banquet hall which has been fully restored to keep its original stone walls and wooden beams while impeccably including the latest technology creating a bright and spacious room. After the wedding breakfast, guests will move downstairs into The Sawmill function room which boasts sprung dance floor, bar facilities, generous seating, atmospheric lighting - everything you need to 'Wow' your guests as you party late into the night! A quieter inter-connecting lounge area adds to this graceful setting, while an outside terrace with awning and gas fire create a relaxed party atmosphere. The Carriage Rooms is fully licensed for religious or civil ceremonies, as well as civil partnerships, providing a unique and intimate wedding venue which radiates an ambiance of relaxed comfort. Your wedding ceremony can be conducted on site, with the option of an outdoor ceremony in the romantic surroundings of The Walled Garden, or an indoor ceremony in The Sawmill, with its distinctive stone walls and illuminated arches. Wedding catering at The Carriage Rooms is exclusive to Yellow Door, Northern Ireland’s premier outside catering company
