A magical Christmas wedding venue

Have you been dreaming of a white Christmas wedding? Has your vision of your special day always included wintery frost, beautiful crisp white snow, stunning scenery and a festive, jolly atmosphere? Then Venachar Lochside is the Christmas wedding venue of your dreams.

Sitting on the banks of Loch Venachar, the venue is right in the heart of Scotland, and it is the perfect choice for a Christmas themed wedding venue. Venachar Lochside has so much to offer, from beauty, style and professionalism to luxury and comfort. It’s a truly magical place for your special day.

The perfect Christmas backdrop

What’s more perfect as a backdrop to your wedding photos than a beautiful loch, mountains and absolutely stunning woodland? That is exactly what Loch Venachar has to offer. We are right on the banks of the loch. And you can marry outside surrounded by stunning Scottish scenery. If you’re lucky, you might even get some snow. Scotland is more than prone to a dusting of snow in the winter. And what could make a Christmas wedding better than a truly ‘white’ wedding as you say ‘I do’?

Warm, sparkling lights

Our wedding experts will help you to decorate the venue to create a truly festive and stunning atmosphere for you and your guests to enjoy. One of the ways Venachar Lochside will do so is through the use of warm and gentle lighting. Think Christmas tree lights, fairy lights, candles and a wonderful fire pit. Giving your day a pretty, warm cosy feel. This is exactly the kind of atmosphere that the experts at Venachar Lochside can help you achieve for your Christmas wedding.

Rustic and natural

Grottos, cabins, all things wintery have a big focus on wood and all things rustic. As a venue in the heart of the Scottish countryside, we take pride in our rustic appearance. It is one of the reasons that our venue is an ideal choice for a Christmas themed wedding. A chic, stylish, natural feel and warmth to all of our buildings.

Under the stars

With access to both our outside and inside space, you and your partner can have some time alone or with a group out under the stars. Since we’re located tucked away from the big cities, the night sky will be much brighter and sparklier than you would be able to see in places like Edinburgh and Glasgow – what more could you want in your wedding photos?

Whether it’s just for some time to yourself, some photos, or to see Santa soaring by on his sleigh, the skies above our venue in the winter are something you have to see to believe. And they add a real sense of magic to all of our Christmas and winter weddings.

A menu like no other

If there’s one thing that everyone loves about Christmas, it’s the good food. At a Christmas themed wedding, you’ve really got to push the boat out when it comes to your wedding menu. And because we are an award-winning venue, with an experienced chef, that will be a piece of cake. We will work with you to create a delectable menu using sumptuous, sustainable, Scottish ingredients.

Our kitchen team are happy to work with all and any dietary requirements, allowing you to cater your menu to your loved ones. Whether you opt for the Gressingham duck breast with celeriac dauphinoise and seasonal greens, or our Morrocan spiced sweet potato, you’ll be just as satisfied as you’d be with a traditional Christmas dinner (if not more!).

Wedding night accommodation

Venachar Lochside is just over an hour’s drive from Edinburgh and Glasgow. But there is plenty of stunning accommodation even closer than that. We know that a good wedding doesn’t end when the songs stop and the last glass of champagne has been drunk. For you and your guests, where you stay and what’s on offer nearby is just as important – especially when it’s around Christmas!

There are four hotels that are all within only ten miles of our venue. If a hotel isn’t authentic or Christmas-themed enough for you, there are plenty of B&Bs nearby, too. Or there is Loch Venachar Lodges, if you want a touch of self catering luxury. These beautiful, stylish, unique lodges help make the most of the scenery at the edge of the Loch. If you want our recommendations for accommodation, you can check them out here.
