Louise & Darran • Barberstown Castle, Co. Kildare

With wedding season back in full swing, this March wedding was a great way to kick everything off! Louise and Darran were absolute stars on the day! Not only did they have fun and enjoy themselves, but their families and guest also had a ball. Love, laughs, and great company – all in a days work 🙂

One of Louise’s stand out moments was walking up the aisle with her father. “Our wedding ceremony was our favourite part of the day. Fr. Kevin Hegarty did a wonderful job, he made us both so relaxed,” said Louise. “We both really enjoyed the church.”

Darran and Louise’s spring wedding was held at Barberstown Castle in Straffan, Co. Kildare. Both Darran & Louise, as well as their families, knew they were looking for more than the standard hotel wedding. “I fell in love with [Barberstown] the first day we looked around, it was everything we were looking for and more! Barberstown Castle ticked all the boxes, and it is only a stones throw from my family home so it reduced travel time. We wanted to create a relaxed and fun day to share with all our family and friends.”

The newlyweds both have praised Barberstown and their staff for the spectacular day. “The wedding planner Catriona was a pleasure to deal with & we can’t thank her enough for all her help!”

A huge thank you to Louise & Darran for letting us share their day and a huge congrats from us to them!
