A perfect venue for small individually tailored weddings from 2 to 20 guests


Imagine your wedding day in the secluded setting of a beautiful Scottish country house, with your own private beach cocooned in a cove surrounded by rugged countryside but with all the style and luxury of one of Scotland’s top wedding venues

A traditional Scottish wedding or a modern style marriage ceremony; perhaps a Beach Wedding, an intimate ceremony in the Lodge or a larger celebration in a marquee set on the lawn, Knockinaam Lodge is a place where you decide how your special day will unfold

This destination wedding venue combines ceremony, celebration - and honeymoon if you wish - in quite special surroundings, tucked away in Dumfries and Galloway, this idyllic south west corner of Scotland

Getting married at Knockinaam is not only special – but easy, no matter where in the world you come from. Both civil and religious wedding ceremonies are possible at Knockinaam Lodge. If you choose a civil ceremony, we will apply for the attendance of a Registrar or Humanist Celebrant on your behalf. Once this has been confirmed we will be able to continue to help you with the planning of your special day. You can also arrange for your own priest or minister to conduct a religious marriage service at Knockinaam Lodge 

Our acclaimed restaurant, serves the finest in modern Scottish locally sourced, seasonal cuisine, is one of the finest restaurants in Scotland, under the consistent and world class stewardship of Scottish Chef of the Year winner Tony Pierce 

Whether it is for a few guests, or exclusive use of the hotel there are many options

The maximum number of guests in the restaurant is 20. Alternatively if you require a table for just a few, we can offer a table for up to 8 at dinner, with accommodation, or more for lunch on small tables, following the guidelines

Of course, as guidelines change, we will look at what we are able to offer, with groups

Unfortunately due to Government guidelines, we cannot offer the option of a marquee or Tipi’s in the grounds due to social distancing guidance on larger numbers. If it were for an Exclusive Let for 20 guests, it would be possible to look at a hire for an open-sided Tipi for a ceremony, BBQ or similar
