Stationhouse Hotel outdoor wedding in December?

December 18, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

One popular topic of conversation in Ireland is the weather and it's usually about how cold, wet and miserable it is. So when Suzanne and Darragh decided to have an outdoor wedding in the month of December, people must have thought they were nuts, or at least very optimistic. However their optimism paid off, and the first week in December saw temperatures hit 15 and 16 degrees with bright sunshine and no rain. Now we are of course talking about 2016 and not this year! This year the weather was baltic and there wasn't a hope of having an outdoor wedding.

Anyway, back to last December and Suzanne and Darragh's wedding in the charming Stationhouse Hotel, which is one of our favourite local venues. Nestled in the heart of the County Meath countryside, the converted railway station provides an ideal location for a wedding, including the ceremony which takes place where the old turntable once stood.

The site of the old turntable provided a sheltered location for this outdoor wedding ceremony in December.
