Let’s not beat about the bush… COVID has changed the way we do things. Of course, it’s important to remember that lockdown won’t last forever. As the late, great Maya Angelou said, “Every Storm Runs Out of Rain“. And despite everything, there are adjustments that for some have been a joy. Ditching the commute and working from home has given some workers more time with precious family, and getting hitched at smaller wedding venues with fewer guests has been enlightening for many. At Bearnock Lodge, in the Highlands of Scotland, we’ve catered for small wedding parties for years.
The Joys of Small Wedding Venues in Bonnie Scotland:
There are some distinct benefits to keeping things smaller when it comes to nuptials. Read on to discover three reasons why we think all good things come in small packages!
A pleasure to plan:
One of the biggest advantages of holding a smaller, more intimate wedding, is that there isn’t as much planning involved. With fewer decisions to make you’re less likely to feel overwhelmed, and you’ll probably enjoy your day all the more for it.
To help you plan a wedding at Bearnock, we’ve put together a “Little Black Book” of local suppliers who can help make your day perfect. Discover the list HERE.
Enjoy your day and your guests:
How many couples do you speak to after their big day who will openly admit that working the room was hard! People say, ‘It flew by’, or ‘I wish I could have spent more time with so-and-so…’ Well, guess what? You can. An intimate or small wedding venue is the perfect way to achieve a more relaxed environment where you can speak to everybody who attends your big day.
At Bearnock Lodge we can accommodate wedding parties of up to forty people. What’s more, our accommodation sleeps twenty-two. So, most of your guests can spend the weekend with you. Don’t worry; the Waterfall Cottage is a wonderfully peaceful and secluded hideaway that’s perfect for the happy couple. You can be with your guests but still, enjoy newly-wed privacy.
Small on footprint, big on character:
The trouble with trying to find a wedding venue to accommodate over a hundred people is that they are often large hotels that can lack character. As a small wedding venue, Bearnock Lodge offers a truly unique experience.
Bearnock Lodge was originally built as a summer home and shooting lodge for a London based family in the 1860s. It has been lovingly restored to the highest standards without losing its 19th-century charm and individuality.
Dine with your guests in our wood-panelled dining room, (it seats twenty-four). Enjoy the sumptuous luxury of the grand drawing-room or the extensive and picturesque grounds.
