Winter wedding ideas from The Lodge on Loch Goil

Why Winter wonderland weddings are so magical

Winter weddings are becoming more popular, as couples look for unique ways to make their wedding memorable.


The popularity of a winter wedding is increasing every year, as more couples see this beautiful time of year as the perfect backdrop to their special day. Cold crisp days, winter sunlight and even (if you’re lucky!) snow can all make a wedding seem even more magical.

The Lodge and winter weddings

Shorter days and longer nights make for cosy sociable evenings, gathered round a roaring log fire or dancing under candlelights. At this time of year dusk can seem to have a enchanting quality, with the soft glow of the afternoon sun providing the ideal atmosphere for truly memorable photographs.

Winter wedding at The Lodge

We were lucky enough to have a snowy backdrop for one of our favourite weddings at The Lodge, between Sophie and Gordon.

The hills around Loch Goil really looked amazing with a dusting of snow, especially when illuminated by the winter sunshine.

With many people having several weeks off work at this time of year, guest attendance can be that little bit easier, and less competing events means that a winter wedding can be the standout celebration of the season.

Nothing says cosy winter better than a roaring log fire and some mulled wine. Or some seasonal hors d’oeuvres, maybe accompanied by one of Scotland’s finest single malt whiskies.

Longer nights have the added bonus of allowing inspirational lights to be visible for longer, adding a special glow to the main event.

seasonal flowers and plants for a winter wedding

One of the best benefits of a winter wedding is the seasonal flowers and plants, that look great as buttonholes or table displays.

What the people say


We had a spectacular time dining at The Lodge. The dishes were creatively and deliciously constructed. The service was unmatched, and our host, Iain, went above and beyond to make sure that we were well cared for. The lodge itself and the surrounding environs are unbeatable in aesthetic terms. I strongly recommend this place to anyone seeking an unforgettable dining experience in Scotland.
