Jessica & TJ, one of our overseas clients, residents of Vancouver, Canada got married in Ballinacurra House in 2018. Below is a testimonial of their overall experience:

Jessica, a born and bred Corkonian, and TJ, a Limerick man who went to school in Cork, met while studying the same course in UCC and soon became a couple in their second year of study. After graduation, they moved to London together and have since relocated to Vancouver, Canada where they have been living for the past four years.

When choosing a location for their wedding, Cork was a definite choice because of their ties to the beautiful county. They were looking for a venue with a bit of character, private hire grounds and space for an on-site civil ceremony, even outside if the weather permitted it!

With these conditions in mind, Jessica and TJ made a shortlist and contacted various venues with questions and availability enquires. Immediately, Ballinacurra House stood out in their response, with the owner Des McGahan responding quickly with personalized answers, compared to other replies they received of links to websites and standard brochures. From this initial contact, Ballinacurra House became their first and only choice. The entire wedding was booked and planned from Canada, and with thanks to Orela, Jessica and TJ found the whole planning experience incredibly easy and successful!

On their special day Jessica and TJ were blessed with beautiful weather, with sunny skies and 26 degrees allowing them to make their dream of an outdoor ceremony a reality. One of the highlights of their wedding day (it was hard to pick for them!) was holding the drinks reception outside. The speeches were held on the terrace and little guests were able to make use of the outdoor playground, creating the exact laid-back atmosphere they hoped for. They just wanted the drinks reception to keep going! Jessica and TJ found the food to be delicious, with guests commenting on the quality of the meals. The whole wedding day ran seamlessly and was one to remember for all who attended.
