I had heard about this great venue near my home in Tipperary, but I had never been. So I was delighted when Patricia and Charles told me their wedding location. Ashley Park House did not disappoint! This beautiful house looks to me like it might be more at home in Louisiana than in Nenagh! But there it is, in Nenagh, and has been since the 1700’s!

Anyway, about the wedding! Patricia got ready at home in South Tipp at her family home. Patricia’s sister is my school friend. I have loved seeing this family of 7 grow to a family of 17 over the last number of years. 18 now they have Charles! Oh and another babys’ arrival is imminent! 19!

The wedding ceremony was held in the boat house at Ashley Park. A lovely relaxed ceremony was made even more so in the beautiful calm space overlooking the water. It was perfect!

After loads of hugging and kissing and congratulations from guests everyone mingled on the lawn. We were able to do our few organised group shots without ever leaving guests view. I love that! It was particularly nice for this couple. Charles is from South Africa so lots of their guests had made the long journey to celebrate with them. It was nice to make sure they got to spend as much time together as possible. The weather was perfect and everyone spent the afternoon on the lawn, playing games and catching up until they sat for their meal in the evening.

Thanks Patricia and Charles for having me there, and for letting me share your photos here.
