ECO-FRIENDLY WEDDING IN SEGRAVE BARNS DUNANY
CHARMING SEGRAVE BARNS
I would like to introduce you to Segrave Barns Dunany. A stunning and unique wedding barn venue on the east coast of Ireland which you can hire exclusively for your own wedding. It’s actually three different barns there and every single one has own charm.
WILLOW BARN -Willow Barn is an intimate, spacious barn perfect for wedding catered ranging from 50 to 250 guests with great success For concerts the numbers can increase to 300 guests. With Dunany Pint bar at the side creating cosy atmospheric Wedding Venue. HOLLY BARN can be used as a ceremony room, drinks reception. ASH TREE BARN is most of the time used by brides for getting ready on wedding morning where we all make-up artists, photographers, videographers and hairdressers start a morning with a cup of coffee:)
I come to Segrave Barn in the morning to photograph the marriage of Ann-Marie and Eoin. Straight on when I met them, you feel that the wedding is going to be relaxed and more like a party than a posh celebration. And this is what I like when it comes to wedding- PARTY. Great atmosphere created by amazing people around. These guys know what they want and they create something extraordinary.
Of course, the option was outdoor. There are two or more options where you can have a ceremony in Segrave Barns. Amazing outdoor space in wood with fairy lights, wooden benches and arch build from wooden bells which look so impressive and is a perfect fit into woodland. Drink reception is also a nice place. You have a long old barn where extra friendly staff serving all drinks and food. There is also an outdoor area with seat etc. It’s kind of DIY place so you can decorate it on your own choice I think.
Barn – Oh !! This is a real barn just check how amazing it looks inside with big wooden doors and beams. The food- I have been to two different weddings there this year both times it was a great experience just delicious and it’s quite an important factor when you choose a wedding venue!
The place is run by two great people Eugene and John. I can ensure you they are professional and so easy going at the same time, best mix. I will definitely back to Segrave Barns for more weddings, and I know they will be as special as two other I shoot there in 2018. So let’s check those photographs below to see Segrave Barn below.
ECO WEDDING TIPS
Are you very conscious of our environmental impact and want to make sure not to have too much waste?. We ordered personalized bamboo straws for our gin bar that also acted as favours. We’re still getting pictures of our guests reusing them which is really special. We had reusable hankies for our napkins (which the staff collected up for us and we’re reusing at home… yes all 120 of them!!) We reused a pom- pom wall hanging that I had made for my sister’s wedding 2 years before as our backdrop for the ceremony in the woods. Pom-pom confetti – that’s not only really fun but you can pick it up and reuse again. Our caterer was also great at helping in any way he could (no butter in small packets etc.,).
A wedding website is good idea. You will be able to cut down not only our environmental impact but cost also which is a win-win. I gifted the terrariums that I had bought for the table centrepieces to family and the bridal party. Have you seen bridesmaid’s hoops? Made with flowers that would dry well so they doubled up as a wall hanging. The week following the wedding I took apart my bouquet and added it to the large dreamcatcher we had for the wedding and it has dried beautifully!
