Weddings Wedding Stories

One Wedding Per Day

We love hearing from the happy couples who have been thrilled by their Clandeboye Lodge experience. Here are some pics that tell the story of their days.

Angela & Clement

“From the beautiful venue. The incredible food. The precise co-ordination. The overwhelmingly friendly service. Everything was perfect. No stone was left unturned. From the first meeting right through to the big day, they really thought of everything. We could not recommend the Clandeboye Lodge highly enough.”

Annette & Laura

“The food and drink was a massive consideration for us when choosing a venue. And after hearing nothing but praise from past patrons, we knew we had picked the right place. The choices we were given to pick from were incredible – it was probably what sealed the deal for us! The food was beautiful, and family and friends had nothing but compliments afterwards.”

Stacey & Darren

“Staying the night before made the occasion even more special. Make-up and hair came to me the next morning, so I could just enjoy every moment. And Parker, our son, was so well looked after, we were able to really relax. From the beginning, nothing was too much trouble – menu choices, dietary requirements, adding a few extra evening guests without any fuss or extra charges. We also knew exactly what style of photography we wanted and Clandeboye Lodge's location meant we could also have our perfect photo shoot.”

Clare & Robert

“We were the only wedding that day and every single member of staff made us their priority. Most of our guests commented on the standard of service. Nothing was too much trouble, we could tweak the package to suit our needs and the food was delicious, beautifully presented and very generous. Plus, we were so thankful that the lovely interiors gave us so many photo opportunities. The red brick period features and stunning timber arches on the old schoolhouse roof allowed for some beautiful photos and really leant itself to our winter wedding.”

Leanne & Ben

“From the moment we arrived, we knew we’d found our venue. The surrounding trees suited the style of our autumn wedding. And the rustic, warm, boutique-style interiors were perfectly inviting for our guests. The Blackwood Suite is a beautiful room, filled with original wooden beams, fantastic windows and lots of character – perfect for an intimate ceremony. As half of our guests were flying over from England for the wedding, it made sense for us to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue. We’d already heard really positive reviews about the food, and it did not disappoint. Some of our guests are still talking about the beef and cheesecake!”

Judith & Jonathan

“We wanted a romantic, intimate and unique wedding ceremony and the Blackwood Suite did not disappoint – our guests said it was ‘just us’. Darren and Ian made everything run like clockwork, so we never once felt hurried or had to keep track of time. The venue was stunning and everything felt so personal and totally dedicated to us and our guests. While we took photographs in the beautiful gardens, our guests enjoyed a drinks reception in the courtyard. They loved the food and even said it was by far the best wedding they had ever been to.”

Carmen & Stephen

“The deciding factor for us about the Clandeboye Lodge was the Blackwood Suite, which blew us away, but we were impressed by so many other things too. Like the fact that our dog Tubbs was able to share our big day with us. Apparently planning a wedding can be a stressful process but the Clandeboye Lodge team accommodated our every need with smiles and encouragement. They also made sure outfit changes went smoothly for our traditional Chinese tea ceremony. Thank you for a stress free process and the most fantastic wedding day!”
