Getting Ready At Your Wedding

Getting Ready

Getting ready at your wedding venue has never been easy with Glengariff Historic Estate. We have two instagram-worthy locations perfect for Brides and Grooms.

Award Winning Wedding Venue

Bridal Villa

We aim to take some of the stress out of your big day by providing access to our exclusive hilltop villa for you and your bridal party ahead of the ceremony.

The villa is secluded and has wonderful views, providing a relaxing sanctuary to have your make-up and hair done, and gather your thoughts before you walk down the aisle. It’s also the perfect spot for some beautiful pre-ceremony pictures.

Brides and their bridesmaids can take advantage of the villa from early in the morning on the big day, with our suggestion being between 6am – 8am arrival time – depending on the size of the bridal party.

And if you’d planned on including classic cars for your wedding day transport, this is still an option with the villa located a short two minute-drive from the ceremony locations.

What an amazing and beautiful place. Our Wedding was perfect and this was thanks to Channing, Dan and Bryce. Not only is the venue a beautiful place with breathtaking views, the service was exceptional. From the beginning it was a stress free experience, everything was looked after by the team at Glengariff. From the first meeting to the end of the of the night. The food was absolutely delicious and the packages offered by Glengariff was amazing. Well worth the money! Channing and Dan were so friendly, organised and very professional and nothing was too difficult for them. They went out of their way to make this the most amazing day ever. From Jess and Nate

We held our wedding here in late 2018; Bryce and Channing (not Tatum) did a great job and made us feel like everything was being taken care of. The venue was simply amazing, and the food options we chose were fantastic. Sure to make any couple swoon when they visit this venue for their wedding!!

I had the pleasure of holding a recent Bridal Styled Shoot at Glengariff Historic Estate. The property is just breath taking and has so many gorgeous photography opportunity locations. Channing and her staff throughout the entire process were just lovely and incredibly accommodating. Glengariff Historic Estate is the perfect location for your fairytale wedding. Highly recommend this beautiful venue. ~ Janette Newell | Olive Rose Weddings & Events

We had our wedding here last week and perfection does no justice in describing this establishment. The staff could not do enough, and nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent, the scenery fantastic and the attention to detail was above and beyond anything I could have imagined. I cannot pick apart one Hong that went wrong on the day and I have had nothing but the highest praises from all my guests about how beautiful the venue was, how great the service was and how AMAZING the food was. Thank you Channing and Dan for creating a perfect day for us xxx

The venue is absolutely beautiful, however, the service was somehow even better. Bryce and his team were phenomenal! They were understanding and accommodating despite some last minute changes and helped the day go smoothly. Our guests did not stop raving about the view and the food, and we were impressed by their attention to detail.Highly recommend.

Gentleman's Lounge

We also understand that the groom and his groomsmen may wish to enjoy a spot to do their suits and calm their nerves before the vows are exchanged.

The doors to the Gentleman’s Lounge open two hours before the ceremony, allowing the groom to enjoy a quiet beverage while they get ready and even have some photos taken before guests arrive, if desired.
