Favourite Wedding Venues – Mar Lodge

Updated: Mar 16

I first went to Mar Lodge last year – and the second time I visited was a month later! Those two visits confirmed my view that Mar Lodge is one of the great undiscovered (by me) venues in Scotland. Originally built as a hunting lodge for the Duke and Duchess of Fife in 1895, it unfortunately burned down in the 1990s while being renovated. The immaculate restoration has now reulted in a complex of luxury appartment with all mod-cons (with the exception of a mobile phone signal!) It is one of the most perfect places in Scotland for a weekend party. The building itself is a wonderful backdrop to any photo. And the 29,000 hectares of beautiful Scottish countryside that make up the estate can leave no photographer at a loss for a location! In the evening, there is the Stag Ballroom. So named for the stags antlers adorning every surface…. I didn’t count them, but there’s apparently over 1,000 of them. And on top of all of that – the staff are just some of the most hospitable people I’ve met! Nothing is too much of a problem for them. Here are some photos from some of the weddings I've photographed there.
