A Wedding Fit for a Film Star (or Film Fan)

If you are a classic movie fan or lover of all things vintage and glamorous then the Campbeltown Picture House could be the perfect venue for a truly unique wedding ceremony. With its magnificently restored Glasgow Art Nouveau Style exterior and unusual ‘atmospheric style’ interior, this venue would certainly inject a touch of Hollywood glamour to your special day.

A Wedding in the Great Outdoors

One of the fantastic things about getting married in Scotland is that there are no restrictions on where you can get married. As long as the registrar/celebrant/religious body carrying out the ceremony agree, you can get married anywhere you like! Imagine saying your vows with the waves lapping behind you on one of the stunning beaches surrounding Campbeltown. Or from the top of Beinn Ghuilean, looking down over Campbeltown Loch. Provided the landowner agrees, the only limit is your imagination. Oh…and the Scottish weather!

An Intimate Hotel Wedding

A hotel wedding offers the advantage of being able to host the entire event in one location.  The Ardshiel and Seafield Hotels, with their choice of dining rooms and outside spaces, make for a fabulous wedding venue for intimate gatherings of 45 – 75 people. Owners Flora and Marion can tailor the wedding package to your needs. By booking all the hotel rooms, you can have a completely private venue for your big day.

A Wedding in the Heart of Campbeltown

The beautifully restored Campbeltown Town Hall makes a spectacular backdrop for your big day. It boasts a PA system, mood lighting and a semi-commercial kitchen as well as offering optional extras like chair covers and table cloths. The main hall can be beautifully lit to tie-in with your theme or colour scheme; whether it be a winter wonderland or pretty in pink.

Your Wedding Your Way

If you want a civil ceremony, rather than a religious/other belief ceremony, then Argyll & Bute Registrars can help! The Campbeltown Registry Office is located in the historic Burnett Building, right beside Campbeltown Loch. As well as in their offices or garden, the Registrars can perform ceremonies outdoors or in the venue of your choice. Your ceremony can be completely tailored to you. You could include traditional Scottish elements such as a hand fasting ceremony or sharing a quaich.
