The ceremony

You can opt to get married in the quaint Clova kirk just 100 yards away from the hotel, in the hotel or our grounds or in the countryside.

Then take a slow stroll and have the breathtaking scenery of Glen Clova and Glen Doll as your backdrop for those photo memories.

Our staff will then look after you as you celebrate with family and friends into the night. We cater from intimate weddings up to larger weddings of 120 and can offer accommodation for up to 84 across our hotel, steading rooms, luxury lodges and our Manse House and Cottage. We would be delighted to meet with you to discuss your options and will be with you throughout the whole process.

Clova Community Kirk

Approximately 100 metres from our hotel is the simple, yet beautiful Clova Community Trust Kirk. There has been a kirk at this location for several centuries, and this incarnation of the kirk dates from 1860. The kirk is non-denominational which means you have the choice of a religious or a humanist service. As the kirk is independent you must book your ceremony direct with the Kirk Trust and we can assist you with details of who to contact. Many of our brides choose to walk down to the kirk to the sound of the bagpipes. The kirk holds up to 120 people.

Outdoor Wedding

In Scotland you can legally get married outdoors at a location of your choice so you can opt to get married at one of the beautiful locations around us – Corrie Fee is a dramatic backdrop for your ceremony as is Loch Brandy. Both of these locations do require a certain level of fitness and may not be ideal for any family or friends who have mobility issues. Another option is to get married at our own Loch – Loch Heath which is just under a mile from our hotel but all on easy walking surfaces.

At Glen Clova Hotel

You can also choose to get married in our Loch Wharral Suite at our hotel. Within our hotel you can opt for a more traditional civil ceremony, a religious ceremony or a humanist service. We can seat up to 50 people in this suite. We also have a lovely outdoor decking area which lends itself perfectly to an alfresco wedding or get married in our grounds at the front of the hotel.
