A Winter Wonderland Wedding?

As the chill in the air grows crisper and snowflakes begin to float down from the sky, Venachar Lochside turns into something truly magical. Venachar Lochside is a stunning place for weddings all year round. But as the days get shorter and frost starts dusting the trees, grass and rooftops, it becomes a real dreamland. With the idyllic Scottish countryside and all of the high-quality resources available to our couples, Venachar Lochside is the perfect place for the Winter Wonderland wedding of your dreams.

If you’re hoping to have a Winter Wonderland wedding that will set you apart from the rest, then take a look at everything we have to offer.

A stunning winter location

Based on the banks of Loch Venachar, our wedding venue is surrounded by stunning scenery. When winter comes around the setting only becomes more beautiful. The loch reflects the stunning woodland and distant mountains. And the landscape turns from lush and green to fierce and dramatic. Pair it with your perfect dress or suit, and gorgeous, natural florals. Add in our expert wedding team’s helping hand, and you’ve got everything the most gorgeous Winter Wonderland wedding could ever need.

Scottish weather

The dramatic Scottish weather lends itself to creating the ideal Winter Wonderland setting. Think crisp white layers of shimmering, perfect snow or a fresh frosty backdrop. The Scottish weather is guaranteed to bring a layer of frost and the perfect Winter Wonderland colour scheme.

Warm mood lighting

We have delightful warm lighting in all our spaces, from fairy lights to candles. Our lighting will make sure that your day has the Winter Wonderland feel of your dreams. When it comes to winter lighting, the ideal is anything warm that contrasts the cool grey sky and frosted grass. At Venachar Lochside, we purposefully provide exactly that so that you can have the Winter Wonderland wedding of your dreams.

Seasonal culinary delights

Winter Wonderlands are made by more than just their atmosphere and scenery; the food plays a big part, just as it does with every winter event. The culinary team at Venachar Lochside know this better than anyone. We will do all we can to create a menu that screams winter, warming, and wonderful. And we will use local, sustainable Scottish ingredients wherever possible. Your guests will enjoy every single bite.

Cosy ceremony spaces

As well as the beautiful outdoor space that we have to offer, our indoor spaces are stylish and super cosy. You’ll be able to unwind and enjoy your special day in our warm, beautifully decorated indoor space. The stunning scenery will be just a window pane away, giving even your indoor ceremony the perfect Winter Wonderland feeling.

Warm fires

As one of the additional extras for our Winter Wonderland weddings, Venachar Lochside offer the option of a roaring fire pit. You can have a gorgeous fire on the bank of one of Scotland’s most beautiful lochs. And we’ll even provide marshmallows and sparklers to help you and your loved ones make the most out of it. Imagine how stunning your photos will be with the fire, and your guests toasting marshmallows. What could be more Winter Wonderland than a couple standing in the Scottish snow with a burning fire right behind them?

Plenty of warmth

Fires aren’t the only thing we can offer to combat the cold – after all, as much as you want the aesthetic of the cooler months, nobody wants to be completely freezing as they say I do. To keep you and everyone you love nice and toasty we have hard working patio heaters. That way you can take as long as you want outside, and snap as many photos as your heart desires, without worrying about your fingers and toes turning purple!
