Traditional Scottish island weddings at the Caladh Inn, Stornoway
…Hebridean hospitality, quality dining, unforgettable celebrations.
Your perfect wedding day dreams can come to life when you meet your Personal Wedding Planner at the Caladh Inn. She or he will take your brief and help you choose a package tailored to your wishes – exactly. We’re flexible and don’t tie you to set menus and arrangements – we have the knowledge and expertise to take the stress out of organising your wedding reception, encouraging you to involve yourself in the fun aspects of the planning while we take care of the less exciting elements.
If you want to make or buy your own reception decorations and place them once the room is set up, we’re delighted to have you stamp your personality on the event. We’ve hosted so many weddings that we can help you with suggestions about what is or isn’t practical; what guests enjoy and how best to entertain them.
We won’t insist that you follow a schedule set by us – if you wish, you can plan your own timetable into which we can agree with you (beforehand) how and when we will incorporate the elements of the reception that we provide.
Whether you’re planning a banquet for 150 – with dancing to a live band, a world clan gathering, or a simple celebration for less than a dozen guests, we can provide the perfect environment.
Under the applicable law, the Caladh Inn and banqueting suites are an ‘Approved Place’ for a civil marriage, which means you have the option to hold a marriage ceremony at the hotel, as well as your wedding reception, should you wish.
Experience and skill
Every one of our staff members is dedicated to achieving and maintaining the highest possible levels of service – wedding receptions here show just how well we can look after our guests – food is served efficiently, is restaurant quality and we have plenty of menu choices from which you can select.
During the reception, our wedding management team ensures that everything runs smoothly, leading the proceedings for you and adjusting schedules to suit the pace of your day. In case the weather is bad and you think you may need photography indoors, we can have a suitable space reserved for you.
If you want your wedding planner to act as a master of ceremonies, addressing guests on your behalf to introduce speakers, etc., just ask.
The Caladh Inn has a reputation for hosting friendly, agreeable receptions – we have done it so long that we’re now organising the celebrations for the daughters and sons of some of our original happy couples.
Wedding packages for all budgets
There’s a choice of complete packages that cover the needs and budgets of many wedding couples, but if there’s something that you would like and it’s not already in one of our packages, just ask and, if it’s humanly possible and fits through the doors, we’ll provide it.
When you’re ready, please call us on 01851 702740 to make an appointment for an initial, no obligation, discussion about your plans.
View our brochure shown below which is packed with information and advice that will help you plan your wedding. We’ve also provided menus and prices for suggested packages – but please remember that you’re welcome to have menus and other aspects of the wedding tailored to your individual request. (Note these items open in a new window and are served by our head office web site.)
