Top Wedding Tips

Your Wedding is as unique as you… do not allow anyone to tell you otherwise. There is no right or wrong. Your Wedding can be whatever you want it to be. Anything goes...

If you are worried about your guest list and who to invite, don’t worry.. we find this advice most useful.. If you wouldn't send a birthday card don’t invite them to your wedding unless you have space

DIY Weddings can be beautiful but yet stressful, always start to make DIY decorations at least 6 months before your day and create a table plan that can easily be adapted if guests have to cancelled

Had our wedding reception here and it was perfect. All the staff were friendly and went out of their way to help and answer any questions we had. Loads of our guests asked me where we found the place and commented on how fantastic the place looked.

My husband and I would like to thank Bethan and all other staff involved in the planning and coordination of our wedding at Lysaghts in August of this year (2018). We had an absolutely perfect day, nothing was too much trouble. All the guests I have spoken to since our wedding have expressed how wonderful it was, from the food, to the entertainment and the decoration of the room. Would 100% recommend anyone looking for a wedding venue to book with Lysaghts! It was perfect from beginning to end! Thank you so much! xx

All the staff were really helpful and accommodating. The service was first rate, the room looked beautiful, the food was cooked perfectly. We were celebrating a wedding, so it was a special day anyway, but the service we received ensured it was a very memorable day. Thank you the Lysaght Institute.
