A truly beautiful experience
My husband and I got married her on the 14th August 2021. We were so lucky and happy to have stuck with our original date as our wedding weekend was one of the first weekends without really any restrictions. The only thing that was still being encouraged was to wear a mask when moving around (to the toilet for example). We got married outside beside the river which was simply stunning! You cannot get much places that offers this kind of unique experience. We had such a great day and the staff were helpful but also left you to party the night away without any trouble. The next day, all our things from the night before were neatly placed on a table in the room we had the ceremony so that we could just take our stuff and not have to sort through it all properly - very helpful when feeling a bit rough the next day! The food was stunning and such generous portions. I always find wedding food so basic, mass produced and bland but this food was honestly WOW! The setting is stunning. The rooms are comfortable and we also exclusively hired the cobbleheugh house for the weekend which you MUST do if you choose to get married here. We are so glad we chose Banchory Lodge Hotel as our wedding venue - one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.

Exceeded our expectations
From our picturesque wedding on the banks of the River Dee, followed by live music and drinks on the lawn served from the 'Fox Box' to the wedding reception and Sunday BBQ in Cobbleheugh - Banchory Lodge exceeded our expectations and made our wedding weekend so very special!

We had the most amazing time
From the moment we arrived and checked in to Cobbleheugh, together with our families, we had the most amazing time. The BBQ and staff were brilliant and having the privacy of the house and garden was perfect!

Surpassed our expectations!
"From the moment we arrived and checked in to Cobbleheugh, together with our families, we had the most amazing time. The BBQ and staff were brilliant, and having the privacy of the house and garden was perfect. We were so pleased with the way the ballroom looked for our ceremony, and being able to have our drinks and photographs outside was idyllic. Our reception meal was excellent and the attention to detail when sending the food out was special. You surpassed our expectations and for that we are truly thankful."
