Ashford Castle :-
We consider it a privilege to work in this magnificent 13th century castle, located ½ hour from Galway on the shores of Lough Corrib, Ireland's second largest lake. Once the estate of Lord Ardilaun and the Guinness Family, Ashford opened as a luxury hotel in 1939
In the 1st century B.C. in Rome, the cake was thrown at the bride or broken over her head as one of the many fertility symbols which then were a part of the marriage ceremony. Cutting the wedding cake together, still a predominant ritual at weddings, symbolizes the couple's unity, their shared future, and their life together as one. The three tiered cake is believed to have been inspired by the spire of Saint Bride's Church in London, England.
