bride and groom walk through confetti


Doesn’t every bride deserve to be treated like a Goddess? With classical architecture modeled on the Greek Temple of Nemesis, Portico is the perfect venue for a romantic and elegant wedding.

This beautifully restored former church combines a stunning architectural backdrop with charming original features such as original wooden pews and beautiful stained glass windows with modern comforts like decent central heating and fully accessible facilities.

The Terrace

Our attractive first floor terrace with its view of Strangford Lough is ideal for champagne and canapés after your wedding. Should the weather prove unkind the Meeting Room panelled in period style, or the Balcony with its exhibitions are characterful alternatives.

The Garden

The building-wide steps and classical columns are a perfect backdrop for stylish wedding photography as is our landscaped “Quiet Garden”.


There is space for the erection of a marquee in the grounds. For further information please contact us.
