We recently traveled to Cong, County Mayo, Ireland with Pink Posh Photography for a very intimate wedding ceremony. From the day they met, Amber and Adam's story is truly a fairly tale. Getting married in this almost thousands years old Ashford Castle really caps off their story. Amber and Adam are both from Texas, and they had a reception last week in Dallas. This love story and wedding film was shown during their reception.
A little history behind the Ashford Castle - "The castle was built in 1228 by the Anglo-Norman de Burgo family following their defeat of the O'Connors, the Royal House of Connacht. After more than three and a half centuries under the de Burgos, Ashford passed into the hands of a new master, following a fierce battle between the forces of the de Burgo's and those of the English official Sir Richard Bingham, Lord President of Connaught. In 1589, the castle fell to Bingham, who added a fortified enclave within its precincts. In 1715, the estate of Ashford was established by the Browne Family (Baron Oranmore), and a lodge in the style of a 17th-century French chateau was added to the medieval splendour of the castle. The Estate was purchased in 1852 by Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness, who extended the estate to 26,000 acres, built new roads, planted thousands of trees and added two large Victorian style extensions.
Ashford Castle has been named one of the best hotels in Ireland and also one of the top 50 resort properties in Europe."
