The Red Barn

Arna and Kieran had to delay their celebration due to Covid restrictions in the first lockdown so waited a damn long time for their wedding. They definitely didn't hold back with the festivities and everyone had a bloody good time. The girls morning was spent getting ready at The Rocks which is literally a hop, skip and a jump down the road from The Red Barn. It's a beautiful location nestled amongst Lord of the Rings rock formations. The owners also own Flour Cakery and not only created a beautiful wedding cake but provided yummy home baked treats to sustain the bridal party through the morning. How good?! We went back to The Rocks for the bridal party photos because the rock formations are just stunning.
