Highland Wedding


A unique wedding day created just for you

At ‘The Lodge’ we have been curating unique and memorable wedding days for over ten years. As a family business we take a personal pride and a real delight in being part of your special day. We understand that you have months of planning ahead and hundreds of details to get right, and we will be with you every step of the way, advising, and above all else, listening. Because we never forget that this is your special day and, from the table flowers through to the evening entertainments, we know you will want to put your special mark on the occasion. So whether you want an intimate wedding or a grand celebration, we are here to make sure that, together, we create the romantic Scottish Highland wedding of your dreams.


The perfect setting for a memorable day

The perfect Scottish Highland wedding requires a classic Highland setting, and nothing could be more quintessentially Scottish Highlands than a tranquil loch set against a backdrop of the Cairngorms National Park. Our loch-side gardens, loch-side terracing and glass-walled marquee add those je ne sais quoi ingredients that will make your summertime wedding extra special. Whilst our glass-fronted function rooms ensure that our panoramic loch and mountain views can be enjoyed by you and your guests in all seasons. And blessed with such a romantic backdrop, we can promise that your wedding photographs will be just as memorable as the day itself.


‘The Lodge’ is all yours

For the duration of your wedding ‘The Lodge’ is set aside for your exclusive use. That means you and your guests can stay with us both before and after the wedding, making the day itself a much more relaxed event. Our bedrooms are furnished with en-suite bathrooms and comfy king-size double beds as standard, and our larger suites offer under-floor heating, saunas, steam spas and Jacuzzis baths. The bride-to-be can be truly pampered ahead of the big day in our Reflect Spa, and your resident guests are welcome to sample the pleasures of our leisure facilities, including the outdoor hot tub, indoor Finnish Sauna, and cold plunge pool. There’s also tee times available for our nine hole golf course and driving range, and if there’s a local activity you’d like to try - perhaps some fishing on the loch or a bit of water skiing - we can help arrange that too. It’s all here just for you.


A great reception and evening entertainments await

‘The Lodge’ has two excellent wedding suites. The glass-fronted ‘Formaston Suite’ on the first floor is ideal for the reception and can seat up to 85 dining guests. On the ground floor we have the ‘Osprey Suite’ which can accommodate up to 120 guests and is just perfect for the evening entertainments. If you’re having a summertime wedding then our Osprey Deck and unique glass-walled marquee provides a wonderful loch-side venue that can be utilized in a variety of ways to suit your requirements. Our high standards of catering have earned us an AA Good Dinner Award and accreditation with the Visit Scotland ‘Taste our Best’ scheme, and we will create a bespoke wedding menu just for you. For the all-important evening entertainments we have a solid wood dance floor and plenty of room for a live band or DJ (or both). Our bar is stocked with some of the finest single malt Scotch whiskies, we offer wines from the best vineyards in the world, and cocktails are our speciality. And when it’s finally time to retire, the happy couple can look forward to a night in our De Luxe Glentanar Suite. The perfect ending to a memorable day.
