Declare your love with an exclusive, intimate wedding in the beautiful village of Cushendun.


The village lies at the mouth of the River Dun, nestled in the spectacular Glens of Antrim, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Recognised for its unique architectural heritage, Cushendun has been protected by the National Trust since 1954 as a conservation village.

The Old Church Centre

The Old Church Centre is a charming, atmospheric building, set in an idyllic location close to the beach, ancient caves and the village centre and there is ample parking nearby.

It is fully licensed to hold civil and religious marriage ceremonies, with seating for up to 80 guests. With free wi-fi provided, your wedding ceremony can be streamed to family and friends across the world.

Elopements in Ireland

Just along the coast from Dunluce Castle you’ll find the Old Church Centre in Cushendun – a tiny, picturesque gem of a village sitting beside the sea, nestled within the spectacular Glens of Antrim.

Our beautifully-restored Church of Ireland building is now a unique, magical place to hold your elopement ceremony.

Your ceremony can take place on any day of the week, at any time of day. We provide simple decorations, a ceremony table and you are very welcome to bring bubbles to celebrate your marriage. We can put you in touch with local celebrants who will officiate at your ceremony.

After your ceremony you may like to take a stroll along the beach to visit our “Game of Thrones” caves and round off your day with a glass of Guinness at Mary McBride’s traditional Irish pub or enjoy a meal in its award-winning Little Black Door restaurant.

There are many cosy holiday cottages in Cushendun, all within minutes of the church … just in case you want to stay for a day or two to sample village life, make friends and create memories to last a lifetime.

Planning Your Day

To assist you in planning your wedding we can provide contacts for local suppliers to meet all your needs for your special day: transport, catering, flowers, music, accommodation, room decor, photographer – anything you need, simply ask!

A Very Special Venue … and more!

It’s your day, your way. If you’d simply like to hire the church we provide seating, a ceremony table and audio system for music and readings.

For your Reception, you may like to contact the Little Black Door, which is part of a traditional Irish house pub, carefully and lovingly modernised in recent years.
