We are very lucky to have numerous interesting photography spots at Ballyscullion Park. We have some very popular and beautiful locations such as along the over one hundred year old brick wall and amongst the abundance of roses and seasonal flowers. The swing and the summer houses also make for beautiful snaps, particularly if you dress them with flowers. Some of the interesting areas are steeped in a rich history while others are just a bit quirky and different. Whatever your style and taste, you will be sure to find plenty of potential locations to create some long lasting memories.
The Palace Ruins
The Palace ruins make a fantastic backdrop for wedding photos, especially if you are feeling adventurous and willing to clamber up onto what were the windows of the almost 250 year old sister palace to Downhill Demesne! The woodland area in general is the perfect already dressed set for your snaps and create a wonderfully ethereal setting.

Some couples find beauty in the less obvious spaces which we love to see! We have had couples who have taken photos in our workshop sheds alongside the firewood pile as well as our old boat. There are plenty of areas like this to take advantage of, especially if it is raining.
The Raspberry Canes
As well as the numerous flower strewn borders and rose covered walls, some brides and grooms love their photo being taken amongst the raspberry canes in the wilder part of the garden. These canes have been supplying the Mulholland family with raspberries since they bought Ballyscullion Park in 1938!

The Green House
On a similar theme, the Green House has been a very popular spot for our couples. As well as some tomatoes and courgettes growing in the background, there is an abundance of stunningly red Dahlias that create a fantastic contrast of colour with the Bride’s gown.

We have also had some very creative photographers who edit their photos to make them much more dramatic and impactful. We love this photo taken by Kris Dickson with the fire rising up from the wood pile, it looks like a still from an action movie and creates a fantastic atmosphere!
