Weddings can be a little different now and no less special.
We have always enjoyed hosting intimate weddings at Temple House. We have over 15 years of experience in making small weddings special and memorable, with a real personal touch. Your guest list might be 10, 20, 30 or something like 50 maybe.
There are 10 rooms in the big house and a further 4 in our cottage, sleeping up to 28 on the estate. Hopefully that will be enough for your family and bridal party. Imagine being able to come down for breakfast in your silk pyjamas - it is just your nearest and dearest after all. You'll appreciate the privacy the day after all the more!
You will choose what sort of ceremony
you would like. If it is part of your plan, your civil ceremony has to be held Monday-Friday; usually about 3.30 pm so that it runs nicely into the reception timings. We like to hold the ceremonies in the terraced gardens or, if the weather is unkind, in the Gallery which has a wonderful skylight. Alternatively, a humanist ceremony can also be held on a Saturday. There are also lovely churches in the area.
Open Space - indoor and out!
The rooms in Temple House are enormous but there is a real sense in intimacy too. That's because it is a family home and you have the opportunity to put your mark on the place, with as much or a little decoration as you like. The interiors are beautful already.
The initial reception with bubbly and canapés is held in the vestibule, morning room and sometimes in a sunny garden. You'll enjoy your photos now too. We like to have the speeches in the vestibule off the grand staircase. You can then relax and enjoy the meal!
Our philosophy is that it should be cooked fresh, look good and taste great. ~86 euro from canapés to late supper. www.templehouse.ie/weddings/food-drink
DrinksWe look after the drinks.
Bubbly: ~39 euro for a lovely dry Prosecco, 59+ for champagne, or perhaps some cocktails. Allow about a third of a bottle per person.
Wine: ~25 euro for a French house wine. Allow about half a bottle per person.
We can also arrange a bar or an honesty bar depending on your final numbers.
The musician(s) from your ceremony might play for your cocktail hour too if you like that idea. We have space for some music and dancing later too if that is what you'd like. A couple of options for you consider.
It is important to note that we have the flexibility to adapt our reception rooms to suit the sort of party that you will enjoy. Please come and see how.

We will plan the day together in order to maintain physical distancing without it feeling too awkward. Temple House and staff will be adhering to, if not exceeding, Failte Ireland and HSE c-19 hygiene guidelines.
