An Intimate Affair – The Advantages of a Small Wedding

There is nothing wrong with a large wedding, but with many young couples now often choosing to pay for their own wedding and possibly looking to buy a house together, it makes sense to consider a smaller wedding.

Most weddings held at Knockderry Country House Hotel are small destination weddings, with couples choosing to celebrate their marriage and future together with a select group of family and friends.

Small weddings have become our speciality with up to 60 guests most common, although more can be arranged with a marquee. Although there may be fewer guests, the day does not have to feel any less grand or stylish and all our weddings are uniquely handled throughout the planning process.

In fact, having a smaller number can provide you with a number of advantages:

  • It is much easier to create a guest list. With just close family present, only those who really want to celebrate the day with you are present.
  • You also have more control with a small wedding, although with our Wedding Coordinator on hand to assist, you are not left to organise everything yourself.
  • Finally, it can be less stressful with fewer guests and you can create a day that holds real meaning for you both.

Small weddings can be beautiful and intimate. Knockderry Country House has managed wide a variety of weddings so we can help and advise you on all aspects of your wedding and reception to ensure that it is planned and executed flawlessly. So whether you are looking for a private country house wedding or an intimate venue, Knockderry House is one of the most romantic and picturesque wedding venues in Scotland.
