CASTLE GROVE COUNTRY HOUSE

Castle Grove Country House, Letterkenny.
A beautiful wedding from start to finish, Catherine and Simon shared a great day with friends and family. Castle Grove itself is a stunning location tucked away between Letterkenny and Rathmullan, overlooking the Swilly. I’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings at this gorgeous wedding venue in Letterkenny a few times now.
Castle Grove Country House is a beautiful 17th century manor right by Drongawn Lough. Castle Grove was taken over by the Sweeney family in 1989, transforming the property into a luxury, four-star country house wedding venue in Donegal.
I felt right at home with Catherine and Simon. A beautiful couple by all accounts with two lovely families to boot. I just LOVED Catherine’s 1950’s style dress with stunning blue petticoat.
They had the sweetest humanist ceremony in Castlegrove itself, with poems read by friends. One, a poem called “Having a Coke with You” by Frank O’ Hara, I was particularly taken with. Their guests soaked up every minute of the humanist ceremony. I don’t think I seen one phone leave a pocket or purse throughout which made it all the more special to witness.
Castle Grove is the ideal spot to spend the day with your loved ones. The house is just the right amount between spacious and intimate, allowing time in between the ceremony and reception to mingle with friends and catch up with family. The rooms are so beautifully decorated and the grounds are perfect to walk around in for a breath of fresh air. The staff were lovely as always and very helpful.
