Little Wedding.. Big Heart - The Lodge on Loch Goil

Little Wedding.. Big Heart

A Wonderful Intimate Garden Wedding


Christina and Stephen got married in the garden under the large copper beech tree on Tuesday 16th August  2016. I have to say when I met them they knew exactly what they wanted – an outside small, intimate wedding with close family and a few friends.

Little Wedding Big Heart

Nothing too lavish as they do not like to be the centre of attention. I knew this instantly, what a really lovely young couple, and I have to say they truly are in love.

Christina’s Words

I’m a busy primary school teacher and Steve is a shift worker, working within the electricity industry. We both have busy schedules but make the most of the time we have together mainly by being outdoors either sailing or walking.

We met around 20 years ago at a local sailing club. Steve and his family sailed there, and I used to visit to watch my brother who was learning to sail at the time. We began dating 10 years ago after I had moved away to university.

Steve proposed 9 years after we began dating whilst we were on holiday in Mexico.

We stumbled across The Lodge by accident and were so happy we did! We knew that we aren’t people who want to be the centre of attention and a huge wedding in a church really wasn’t what either of us wanted.

We saw The Lodge online. We knew we wanted an exclusive venue in the countryside.  As soon as we drove down the driveway we looked at each other and knew we wanted to get married there. It’s remote, friendly and stunning. Of course, the gorgeous treehouse was a selling point too!

We could not find any fault with our time at The Lodge. Both our guests and we were welcomed as if we were family, everybody was friendly and professional, nothing was too much effort.  The whole experience ran smoothly, A truly magical occasion for everyone.

Alice was incredibly helpful and arranged an amazing wedding for us including: a piper, a fun casino and fireworks!

We travelled to St. Lucia for 12nights on honeymoon. A very relaxing time.

We’ve been together for 10 years already. Neither of us can see that changing. We’ve got lots of adventures planned, but visiting The Lodge again is definitely one of them.

When it comes to wedding ceremonies, many couples agree size matters.

Fewer people can mean a more personal celebration.

There’s more time for the bride and groom to spend with their guests, the group really gets to know one another, Intimate celebrations definitely have certain advantages.

Remember you do not have to have 100 people to your wedding you have the choice to do exactly as you like.

Never feel under pressure to do what other people think you should.

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.
