Clandeblog What to expect at the Clandeboye Lodge Wedding Fair
In need of some wedding inspiration? Join us at our wedding fair!
Our Wedding Fair will give you the chance to discover everything Clandeboye Lodge has to offer, from the stunning grounds and uniquely eclectic wedding suites to our hotel's facilities and stylish bedrooms and suites. You'll also get to meet some of Northern Ireland's top wedding suppliers who will be showing off their newest ideas and creations to inspire your big day.
If you’re planning on attending the Clandeboye Lodge Wedding Fair, here is what to expect and how to make the most out of it!
Do some research in advance
Before you attend, it’s a good idea to take some time to think about what kind of wedding you want. Are you dreaming of an intimate celebration with your closest friends and family? Or perhaps a grand affair with hundreds of guests? Once you have an idea of what style of wedding you'd like, it will be much easier to home in on the types of suppliers that interest you. Not sure where to start? Find inspiration on our social media or website for wedding testimonials and styling inspiration!
Bring someone along for a second opinion
A second opinion from a trusted friend can be incredibly helpful to you and your partner when making decisions, especially big ones! It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of the event and make impulsive decisions that you may later regret. Having someone else there to help you stay focused and for a second opinion can be a huge help. Plus, it's always more fun to plan with someone else!
Explore the wedding suites
Of course, our Wedding Fair is the perfect opportunity to explore our individually designed wedding suites fully set up. Until you see the gothic charms of the Blackwood Suite, the contemporary chic of the Sheridan, the quirky character of the Viceroy or the classic grandeur of the Clandeboye, you won’t really understand the character that Clandeboye Lodge brings to the wedding of your dreams. Don’t forget to take lots of pictures!
Meet the wedding team
At our Wedding Fair you can get to know our amazing wedding team who are, we’re proud to believe, the best in the business. They’re knowledgeable and passionate about weddings, and they’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you have. Our team will be on hand to check available dates and take provisional bookings.
Explore the hotel
Our Wedding Fair is a great opportunity to take a tour of our hotel facilities including the Coq & Bull brasserie and our uniquely furnished bedrooms and suites. Don't miss the opportunity to have a look at our amazing new Ultra-luxe Suite, perfect for getting ready on the morning of your wedding.
You'll get to explore our gorgeous gardens adorned with enchanting archways, beautiful blooms and winding pathways (perfect for photo opportunities). If you wish to explore beyond, the nearby fields, woodlands, and stunning beaches await.
Meet lots of suppliers
Meet some of Northern Ireland's top wedding suppliers at the Clandeboye Lodge Wedding Fair, from florists and photographers to stationers and cake bakers.

So, whether you need help finding your dream dress or want advice on choosing the right photography package, don't be afraid to ask for advice from the suppliers themselves.
