Doing it in Style – Gail & Domhnall in Dromoland castle

By MrsRedHead In Weddings

Gail and Domhnall celebrated their wedding in style with lots of traditional Irish aspects blended seamlessly with more on trend details. Dating for just over 7 years Gail and Domhnall had a big guestlist for their celebration (200!) and they made sure each and every one had an unforgettable time at their classic Dromoland Castle wedding

Gail and Domhnall met, like many of us, in a good ole fashioned Irish pub in Co.Clare. Gail was (and is!) a good friend of Domnall’s little brother Diarmuid and from the minute Domhnall introduced the pair sparks flew. As Gail lived in Clare, and Domnall Dublin the next year and a half consisted of lots of trips back and forth until Gail made the move to Dublin.

When it came time to propose, Domhnall decided to go for all out classic romance and planned a surprise trip for Gail to Paris. Now I know for lots this might be a clear signal of an upcoming proposal but luckily for Gail this wasn’t out of the norm as Domhnall often plans little trips away (what a keeper!) The only problem was getting a sparkling engagement ring through airport security without Gail noticing… „Domhnall proposed in Paris after bringing me away on a surprise weekend way(getting an engagement ring onto a Ryanair flight is not easy he told me!), not unusual for Domhnall to organise a surprise weekend away and Paris is one of our favourite destinations. So I had no idea a proposal was on the way. He popped the question on the bridge of locks in Paris on our second day, with me bursting into tears for the following 20mins! It was so romantic and wonderful having the following few days together to enjoy being on cloud 9 together.”

When it came to picking a venue Gail and Domhnall were enamoured by Dromoland Castle from the moment they arrived for their initial viewing. Gail and Domhnall wanted somewhere relaxed where all of their friends and family could have a great day, enjoy good food and celebrate. A fabulous Irish castle with lots of room to fit all 200 guests plus a lovely team – Dromoland Castle fitted the bill.
