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 2-30 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, including dining, wines and champagne, master of ceremonies, flowers and decoration, cake, photography, and hair and make-up. We can also help with the entertainment. We can host the ceremony at the hotel, as a fully licensed civil wedding venue.
We have a choice of four Elegant Civil Ceremony Rooms, including a wood-panelled library for small intimate weddings of up to 18, a Binocular lounge and deck for upwards of 14 overlooking Asknish Bay and onto the islands of Scarba, Shuna and Jura, our main lounge for 40-60 guests and, of course, the beautiful outdoors for up to 90 guests.
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, such as at 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 for £250.
If you wish to have a traditional Church wedding, there are three picturesque village churches, Kilninver, Kilmelford and Craignish all within a very short drive. Alternatively, there is a local Registry Office in nearby Oban.
A few extras
If you want a wedding with a wow factor, you can even arrive by boat, helicopter, horse or even your own digger! We are happy to help make your dream day even more special and exciting. We can arrange a firework display and bonfire on the lawns outside the hotel.
We will work with you, guiding you through the day and the formalities to deliver the wedding day you wish for.
