Nestled amidst rolling emerald hills, Ireland’s enchanting Luttrellstown Castle Resort is a sprawling 600-year-old historical gem-turned-luxury resort that beckons you into a fairytale realm. The castle’s exact age is cloaked in the mists of history. Still, legend has it that Sir Henry Luttrell seized the estate in 1436, during the reign of King Henry VI, establishing an aristocratic dynasty that held dominion over the land for more than three centuries. The castle’s story is also intertwined with the world-famous Guinness family, who wielded their influence over the property from the 1910s to the 1950s, adding an extra layer of grandeur to its illustrious history. The castle also served as the backdrop for the iconic wedding of David and Victoria Beckham in 1999, adding a touch of Hollywood fairytale to its storied past.

Along with world-renowned wedding photographer Genevieve de Manio, WedLuxe had the honor of visiting this extraordinary destination to create a high-fashion wedding editorial for our brand-new global destination magazine, WEDLUXE EXPERIENCES.

The editorial was produced by our editor-in-chief and creative director Angela Desveaux with event planning and menswear styling by event planner extraordinaire, Bruce Russell of Bruce Russell Events and fashion styling by The Stylish Bride.

Editor’s Note

“When we visited Luttrellstown Castle Resort, our group was instantly mesmerized. Staying in the castle was an experience of a lifetime—after all, it’s not every day you have an entire 15th-century castle to yourself! (When you book the castle, it’s yours exclusively.) Choosing our suites was the first highlight. From “The Duchess of Cumberland” to “The King John,” all twenty suites are unique and luxurious. As I peeked into each room, I couldn’t help but think, “…If these walls could talk, they would certainly have some incredible tales to tell.” Outside the castle walls was a playground like no other. The impeccably manicured estate grounds seemed endless, including the world-renowned golf course and clubhouse. The Great Irish Outdoors is at its very best here, with the resort offering everything from falconry to an authentic horse and hound experience, the latter of which we were lucky enough to capture. We felt like we had the “luck of the Irish,” during our stay, including a perfect fairytale ending, when just moments after completing our last shot of the day, the most extraordinary rainbow appeared like magic over the emerald fields of Luttrellstown Castle.”
