A Vegan Wedding At Mount Druid

Recently, Himself and I were invited to the best “alternative wedding” venue in Ireland. Engaged ladies and gents, have your pencils at the ready, you’ll want to take notes!

Mount Druid Boutique Camping in Westmeath is your one stop shop for upscale, boho chic, festival wedding/birthday/celebration extravaganza type things!

With 100 acres of parkland to play with, Mount Druid has sympathetically built a Tin Chapel, Boathouse, Barn and custom made accommodation (Yurts, Shephard Huts, Tin Huts, Caravans and Cottages) all of which are cute, quirky and a photographers dream – as is this handsome fella!

We rounded up a few cards, including our own and posted them through the letterbox to the happy couple, then made our way down to the Tin Chapel – beautifully decorated with gorgeous origami birds – for the ceremony which was filled to the brim with love, laughter and song.

After lots of hugs, kisses and well wishes, we were shepherded to the Boathouse

All served alongside the good stuff!

The gorgeous couple were blessed with stunning sunshine for their big day, which was a bit of a shocker as it had been raining heavily on the lead up, so we were all thrilled to bits to get to stand outside and mingle before pulling up a comfy couch inside – I was very taken with the decor, hats off to the interior design team, he/she/they have quite the eye!

At Mount Druid they make their own Pale Ale, so we had to try it (by “we” I mean, Himself drank it and I had a sip), it was really good! All beverages are about the same price as you’d pay in the city but be warned dear country folk, they’re a lot more than what you’re used to price-wise out in the sticks!

Just before six o’clock, we drove up to The Barn for dinner

The setting was exquisite! Beautiful wild flowers adorned each table, as did multicoloured candelabras, there was bunting, fairy lights, a rocking horse, handmade table cards, the list goes on and altogether it made for a truly magic atmosphere

Like the Boathouse, the decor was spot on here too – just look at this wall of tea cups and teapots. I could’ve photographed it all day but was blindsided by the wooden tier that said “watch this space”, we thought “cupcakes?”…. we were wrong!

After brilliant speeches and delicious foodage throughout the meal (hello rhubarb & toasted almond crumble!)

we retired to the lounge area for a welcomed spot of coffee (that was the size of my head – but all the best coffee is if you ask me!)

We all pottered around, some taking refuge in the squishy armchairs, whilst others made use of the outdoor areas (I was lucky to get the below shot before everyone else arrived, because it certainly didn’t stay like that for long!!)

Soon enough it was time for dancing and as always Himself and I were some of the first to hit the floor and proceeded to tear it up for the rest of the night until – the wooden tier disappeared – and reappeared filled to the brim with…

Vegan doughnuts! They were amazing!!!!!

Such a cool wedding idea (I bet your pencils are merely stubs at this point because you’ve gleamed so many awesome ideas from this clever couple!). Seriously though, these bad boys are an absolute winner and were a total crowd pleaser, there was a mini stampede towards them when they were brought out!

At 1:30am, just as the sites dog Piddles (our unofficial leader for the day) curled up and fell fast asleep in what I can only assume is her usual spot! Himself and I said our goodbyes and made the journey home as we had an early flight back to London the next day.

We thoroughly enjoyed the day pretending we were cool, hip vegans before returning to our sanctuary of netflix, bacon sandwiches and cheese
