Great night
They always make you feel welcome at The Loft and this wedding was no different. Superb company, good music, all night long dancing and some delicious drink what else to ask for. Rustic and hearty those two words the best describe this wonderful place where you can relax and have a great time. My favourite place in Moray. Jayne and Alex I wish you all the best. Love xx

Couldn’t of wished for a better day!
Our wedding was held at the Loft and it was honestly better than I could of imagined. The venue itself is beautiful and the staff are just simply amazing. Neither myself or my husband could of asked for better. The day went without a single hiccup. Even an upset flower girl wasn’t a problem. Would highly recommend The Loft.

Our truly joyful and relaxed wedding :-)
We are so glad that we chose the Loft to get married at. Victoria, Sharon and all of the staff were extremely helpful and patient throughout all of the preparation, and on our wedding weekend. We had several emails and phone calls and they were always happy to help, particularly helping us to work out solutions when we hit ‘bumpy’ bits in our planning! We loved that everything was in the one place, and that our family and friends could stay at the venue for the whole weekend, giving us very precious extra time with people. The wigwams were all very comfortable, and we were even able to treat ourselves to a hot tub on our final night. The venue was fantastic for all of the children that were at our wedding, who had great fun running about and playing at the park. Several of our guests have commented that it was the most relaxed wedding they’ve been at. We also had time to go to Roseisle beach for photos and a paddle which we loved! It was absolutely exactly as we wanted, and I can’t speak highly enough of all of the staff... fabulous location, fabulous people, fabulous venue and a truly blank canvas to create your unique wedding! Thank you :-) xxx

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have had many great weddings, the one that sticks in my mind is the couple that chose to go off cue completely to the traditional food choice and went with curry & rice which turned out to be quite a talking point on the day with everyone being surprised and delighted with the unusual choice. The couple wanted it to be relaxed, informal and a family affair and it was just great to be part of such a laid back feel good wedding. The couple also enjoyed another family gathering the day following the wedding with a 3rd night add on to the venue hire and had their own mini-music festival.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always visit a few 'different' kinds of venues to make sure you are really looking for what you want, and when you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach then you know its right for you.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We had a bride who was obsessed with Highland cows and unbeknown to the bride her mother had secretly arranged for a highland calf to be onsite after the ceremony. The happy couple went off to have some wedding pictures done and were totally shocked and surprised to see the calf, I can honestly say the look on the brides face was one of utter elation and was truly worth a thousand words.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Laid back, rustic, rural, romantic, vintage.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have quite a few different areas to choose from but my personal favourite is by the old mill water wheel.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Smoked salmon and cream cheese mini oatcakes

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Cheese & crackers.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We allow time for the couple to create their wedding with family and friends in a relaxed way, with access to the venue the day before for a full day of wedding dressing creation and access the following day for venue clear by couples and suppliers. We also include a 2 night hire of our glamping accommodation which means that friends and family can travel from far and wide and all get together the night before or the night after the wedding for a BBQ or just a chill out catch up time together.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Helping to create a wedding day that is relaxed, laid back and as stress free as possible and seeing happy faces throughout and after the wedding day.
