Simon and Aileen had been coming to Glenfernate for thr May holiday weekend with
the Austin 7 club for quite a few years. After hearing about Emma and Adrrian’s wedding
in 2008 they too were interested in the idea of getting married up here.
Their plan was a little different. They thought of having a marquee in one of the
fields around the farm steading. They would rent the Farmhouse for two weeks. The
week previous to the wedding to oversee the preparations and the week after to relax
and enjoy themselves. Family and friends could book into local B&B’s and hotels.
As time went by they realised it might be a better idea renting Glenfernate Lodge
for the weekend of the wedding to house immediate family, especially for the older
members ad the ones with children. With this new plan, we were able to suggest the
croquet lawn in the Lodge grounds for the marquee, an ideal spot.
Many of the Austin 7 club camp and caravan as they tour around their various venues
so the original “marquee” field was converted into a campsite and was perfect for
parking cars as well.
As you can see by the photographs a super time was had by all!!!
It was while applying for a license for Simon and Aileen’s marriage that the Registrar’s
office suggested we apply for a license for the Lodge. We now have a license for
marriages to be held there as well.
