Group Accommodation – Wedding Venues

Planning Your Wedding in a Large Holiday House

If you are looking for a wedding venue that’s a little bit different, our 3 Scottish houses may just fit the bill. Wedding receptions in large hotels can seem a little bit formal and structured. If you would like a reception that’s a little bit different and want to be able to create your own theme then our houses are perfect.

Not everyone wants a large wedding, The Drury in Oban is an ideal venue for a small intimate celebration. The house can accommodate up to 36 guests for a buffet and the hallway can be used for the ceremony with the bride entering down the stunning staircase.

Hotels are often limited on the choice of menus you can have. You may not want a 3 course meal and may want something more casual such as a hog roast or even a big BBQ in the summer months, all of these options are available to you.

Alexander House and High Wards can cater for larger weddings of up to 100 – 125 guests in a marquee. High Wards has a gazebo for wedding ceremonies set within the grounds. If you don’t want a traditional marquee how about an Arabian Tent?

If you are looking for some inspiration why not make a trip to a wedding fair. There are numerous fairs around the country, but if you want something a little bit different why not try The Vintage Wedding Fair or The Boutique Wedding Fair

The other advantage in renting one of our houses is that you can have your nearest and dearest stay with you in the house, including the dog, so if you can’t bare the thought of leaving Rover out of your celebrations, you don’t have to, he can come along and enjoy the buffet with everyone else! Our houses insist on a minimum stay of 3- 5 nights, which means you and your guests, don’t need to worry about getting up and checking out by 11am the next morning when you may have a slightly wooly head!

Younger children can get, understandably, bored at weddings after a while. Renting a house means that when the boredom sets in, you can set them up in the TV room with a good film which will keep them entertained for a while, meanwhile, they are still in close proximity so you can keep an eye on them and make sure they aren’t eating too much wedding cake.

Rather than packing up and heading home the day after, you can relax and enjoy the day with your family and friends, maybe even enjoy a country walk and a good pub lunch before waving goodbye to your guests and getting ready for your honeymoon, or why not just rent the house for the week and start your honeymoon immediately?

Hiring a self catering house gives you the flexibility to have what you really want on your big day, not what a hotel wants you to have and that’s the big advantage.
