Outdoor Ceremonies and Receptions

The formal gardens that surround Fota House are perfect for bespoke outdoor ceremonies and receptions.

Our experienced marquee and dining partners, along with your dedicated Fota House wedding specialist, can advise on the design of an idyllic setting for your memorable day.

Victorian Working Garden Weddings

We also host weddings in Fota’s Victorian Working Gardens, where the picturesque heritage glasshouses, in lush surroundings, guarantee a sense of drama as well as privacy for your celebrations.

The Working Gardens are ideal for small to medium groups of up to 150 guests.

Catering for Your Special Day

Let your guests raise a glass and enjoy canapés while you are whisked away for those all-important photographs? Perhaps an elegant champagne reception in the Great Hall followed by a hog roast in our gardens? Whatever you choose, our experienced wedding specialists can help.

We work closely with local caterers, florists, wedding service experts, and accommodation providers whose standards match our commitment to excellence. Together, we’ll ensure that every part of your celebrations works seamlessly.
