Wedding Packages

 Every wedding is different and we will plan yours around your wishes.  We have drawn up a package for the wedding day within which there are options eg type of decorations, celebratory meal menu, choice of venue for ceremony, etc. but which covers all key elements plus some extras at a fixed cost.  We are able to quote on other bespoke wishes.

We are fortunate that in the nearest town, which is half an hour's drive away, there are some excellent services such as hairdressers, beauty therapists, florists, specialist cake designers and photographers and so whilst the wedding is held in the wilderness, we are able to provide these optional services at the lodge.
