Wedding Season is here and we have a mini guide to assist in planning for your big day!

Carrick on Shannon is the place to be for Hen Parties and Stags but did you know County Leitrim also is a fantastic wedding location for locals and couples looking for a destination wedding. 

From small bespoke weddings at The Old Rectory Country House a beautifully restored listed Georgian House in Fenagh to fabulous affairs at The Landmark Hotel, an award winning wedding venue and four star family run hotel on the River Shannon and sumptuous luxury at  Lough Rynn Castle Estate and Gardens, one of the top luxury castle hotels in Ireland steeped in history and charm.  Leitrim really does have a lot to choose from.

Carrick on Shannon also has an abundance of beauty, hair and nail salons for the bridal party to ready themselves for the big day. Caterers, Photographers you name it you'll find it.

If you are at the start of your journey and are thinking of an engagement ring, we have a stunning collection of display model rings in store. Each named for a river in Ireland and handmade to your own bespoke requirements by Miriam Wade a finalist in the Weddings Online Awards of 2023.

Now on to the important things, gifts for the happy couple!

Handcrafted tableware from Alan McCluney Pottery we have a beautiful selection to choose from all made by local potter Alan McCluney in his studio in Rossinver where he is inspired by the beauty of the surrounding countryside.

A stunning piece of original art work from Catherine Gray a local textile artist whose work is imbued with the spirit of Leitrim.  Catherine uses her threads to weave a magical scene bursting with all the colours of the countryside especially of the River Shannon.

Eclectic lamps and homewares from Kaiko Studios whose ethos is inspired by the practice of Wabi Sabi and Brutalism.  Many of their pieces are made using concrete and one of our favourites is the Wabi Sabi Concrete Orb lamp, it will light up a room and more!

How about a beautiful pamper box from Soak to help recharge, energize & unwind after the hectic run up to the big day.  Or if you feel this is too much of a decision to make on behalf of someone else why not give them the gift of a voucher.

Another lovely tradition is gifting the bridal party with a piece that will help them remember the special day, how about matching necklaces for the bridesmaids or lapel pins for the groomsmen.

And we can't forget cards, we have lovely whimsical cards for the happy couple and for the happy couple to thank their wedding party.
