We had our wedding ceremony in Johnstown castle and it turned out to be a fantastic beautiful day, everything went the way we wanted and we couldn't have been happier with it. It's such a stunning historical location & a place very dear to our hearts so we were so delighted to be able to be married there. We wanted to do some things differently and they really worked with us to help make the day everything we wanted.

The process leading up to the wedding day was a bit troubled in parts. We initially thought everything was going to plan until we realised we were not hearing anything back and we were told our coordinator was ill. Of course illness happens and it should take top priority but after a few months, we started to get worried and asked if there was someone else we could deal with. Particularly because we had found out from a random poster that a Jazz festival was planned on the grounds on the same day as our wedding. We were really worried that our intimate ceremony would be interrupted by festival music. Eventually Jess took over as our coordinator and was more than helpful, she really came through for us. It turned out that no jazz was played near our ceremony and all was well. Again, we can?t emphasise enough how on the ball Jess was, thank you! It really is a stunning location for a wedding.
