The perfect place for the dream wedding day

Our team at Loch Melfort Hotel will tailor make your wedding, drawing on our many years of experience, fantastic local contacts and reputation for hosting extra special weddings. We are able to cater for weddings of up to 90, with exclusive use for large weddings and intimate events for 2-24 people.

Planning your day
Our stunning grounds and priceless views will provide the perfect background for the wedding of your dreams and we can help you arrange most of the little details or suggest companies to contact (including dining, wines and champagne, master of ceremonies, flowers and decoration, cake, photography, and hair and make-up). We are also able help with the entertainment. As a fully licensed civil wedding venue, we can host the ceremony at the hotel,

We have a choice of 3 elegant Civil Ceremony Rooms. These include a wood-panelled library for small intimate weddings of up to 18. Our main lounge allows for 40-60 guests, whilst the beautiful outdoors space provides room for up to 90 guests.

The Ceremony
The ceremony can take place either in the two connecting lounges, in numerous outside locations or for smaller weddings, in our wood-panelled library. A Scottish piper can be arranged for you to be piped down the aisle and into dinner, and the evening can be rounded off with Ceilidh dancing or your own choice of music.

For those brave enough to second guess the Scottish weather, you could choose from a number of outside locations to have the ceremony itself: the bottom of the steps leading down to the lawns, the boat house located right at the water’s edge or even inside the neighbouring NTS Arduaine Garden to be discussed with the NTS.

If you wish to have a traditional Church wedding, there are 3 picturesque village churches, Kilninver, Kilmelford and Craignish, all within a very short drive. Alternatively, there is a local Registry Office in nearby Oban.

Scotland is celebrated for its positive approach to non-religious service, allowing couples to create an individual day built around their personal beliefs and values. At present, Humanist weddings are not legally recognised in England or Wales, however, they are in Scotland. At Loch Melfort Hotel, we happily cater for civil weddings and legal humanist marriages, both indoors and outdoors. We can even recommend an Oban-based Registered Celebrant with the Humanist Society Scotland, and have a wonderful relationship with individuals specialising in elopements.
