  • Calling all Martinstown House couples! This is an exclusive event for couples who have already celebrated their wedding at Martinstown House. We invite you to join us in your wedding finery for an evening of giggles, tipples, delicious food, games and prizes. Our chef Andrew and manager Jessica got married here in June 2017, and they've been looking for an excuse to wear their wedding garments once again. Need a reason to bust out your wedding dress? Here it is. Dust off that tux, shake out that gown, and give yourself an excuse to be fancy. Garments too big/too small/not clean? Don't have a wedding dress or tux anymore? No problem. Feel free to wear what you have, or to dress up in anything that makes you feel your most regal and merry. We're just going to have a lot of fun no matter what you're wearing, and Olga Hogan Photography will be there to capture the frivolity. Email us at info@martinstownhouse.com for booking details.
