Not everyone wants a huge wedding, and if a small, intimate gathering of your closest family and friends sounds right for you, Waterford Marina Hotel in County Waterford could be the ideal choice.
This friendly, 3* hotel hires out its Library Suite for couples to use for their civil ceremony and wedding breakfast. It can fit between four and 40 guests, so is best suited to small gatherings of just a few loved ones.
The room can be turned around for the evening, or its Waterfront Restaurant could be used to greet additional friends in the evening should couples prefer.
Despite a wedding here being small, brides and grooms can still enjoy a few perks, including a complimentary bridal suite and sparkling wine.
The wedding team are on hand to make sure everything about the day is the way you want it, and such a small venue means you have total control over everything, including meal timings, menu options and room preparations.
As it's located on the banks of the River Sauir, it offers lovely waterside views, while being in the centre of Waterford City allows guests to explore the area further during their stay, particularly as Waterford Marina Hotel offers special room rates for friends and family of the couple.
