We love to host weddings here at Burtown, we will get creative with you, pairing our historic setting with a contemporary twist, beautiful gardens and superb, freshly-picked food straight from the garden. We help every couple who chooses Burtown for their special day create a unique experience that they won’t find anywhere else. There are a variety of settings we can offer, whether indoor in The Green Barn Restaurant, or outdoors in one of several inspiring areas amid 12 acres of landscaped gardens.
James & Joanna
We both grew up in Irish country houses. Our background is photographing and designing interiors and hospitality, growing and eating good food and travelling. We understand how important your wedding day is so we always like to say that anything is possible, so we are open to discussion on any ideas and requests you might have. If you are looking for rustic elegance made unique with your own individual style, please come and visit to see how we can help.
Your celebration meal can be held in our wonderfully rustic, contemporary and Scandinavian-inspired Green Barn Restaurant. The Green Barn is a visual feast. A far cry from a hotel, if you are after something unique then you have found your wedding venue. We love attention to detail. The visual feast, the food, great drinks, the music and how it all gels together. Think beyond round tables and white table clothes for design-led, unique and inspiring themes.
Our heritage gardens offer an infinite number of locations for wedding photographs. This stunning natural backdrop is a true reflection of what each season has to offer visually. Our gardens are made up of several areas, including large herbaceous borders, shrubberies, a rock garden, a yew walk divided by a pergola, a sundial garden, a walled kitchen garden, an old orchard, a more formal stable yard garden and a large woodland garden surrounded on all sides by water.
Food & Drinks
Almost all our produce is grown organically in the gardens here at Burtown. We only ever use free range chicken, wild seafood and the finest Irish beef. We are passionate about what you eat and so your menu will be based on our seasonal organic produce. We have a really great wine menu, and can design a bar for your special night. We also serve Guinness and Carlsberg on tap.
We can host ceremonies in our courtyard garden, the natural pool at the back of our house flanked by our lime walk, the woodland garden, the sundial garden, our rustic stream barn or under the pergola in the yew walk. There are many enchanting locations within Burtown for you to choose from.
The Stable Yard House and The Stable Yard Studio Apartment are located in the stable courtyard garden and provides accommodation for up to 8 people. This luxury hideaway has an old-world feel and cosy touches like open fires, wood burning stoves and an Aga in the kitchen, but with all you need for contemporary living, such as wifi throughout. We can also supply lists of nearby accommodation of country house, B&B’s, castles & hotels, there are over 150 beds in a 10 mile radius.
“Just to say a huge thank you for everything you did for making our wedding so special. You made us feel really comfortable and welcome throughout and all our guests commented on how fantastic they thought the venue looked. The food in particular was a big hit, with a number of people saying it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Thank you also for your recommendation of the Suitcase Trio, they were brilliant. A special thanks to Amy for helping with the room decor and Mary and the team for their excellent service and friendly manner. The Green Barn as a venue lived up to all of our expectations and more”
Susan & Ollie, June 2022
“From the moment we went to view Burtown House we knew it was the wedding venue for us. Everything felt so relaxed and straightforward from the beginning, and everything went perfectly. Amy and James were extremely helpful and always keen to help with any questions we asked. The gardens are absolutely magnificent and so well kept - the perfect backdrop for photos. Lesley at Burtown House did an amazing job with the flowers, they were picked from the gardens and were exactly the style we wanted. On the day of our reception, there was nothing that was too much trouble for the staff, who were pleasant, friendly & welcoming. All our guests could not stop talking how amazing all the food was and how nice all the staff are. They made us feel at ease, which in turn allowed us to relax and enjoy our day to the fullest. We can’t thank you enough”
