Ashford Castle :-
We consider it a privilege to work in this magnificent 13th century castle, located 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


Wedding Trivia:
WEDDING AS A TERM
Although some brides were kidnapped, marriage by purchase was the preferred method of obtaining a wife. The "bride price" could be land, social status, political alliances, or cash. The Anglo-Saxon word "wed" meant that the groom would vow to marry the woman, but it also referred to the bride price (money or barter) to be paid by the groom to the bride's father. The root of the word "wedding" literally means to gamble or wager!
