A UNIQUE SETTING
The family-run Ardkinglas Estate offers two main venues for weddings: the grounds and the house.
Completed in 1907, Ardkinglas House is generally considered to be architect Sir Robert Lorimer’s masterpiece. It’s still a private family home, but you can hire it for your wedding of up to 70 guests.
You’ll get to enjoy the views of Loch Fyne, and have the grand exteriors and interiors of this historic mansion as the backdrop to your elegant wedding.

There’s also the ample grounds featuring majestic woodland and the shores of Loch Fyne. The estate covers about 4800 hectares in total, so there are plenty of dramatic views and romantic, fun photo spots to play with.
You can also decide on how you set up! So you could go for an outdoors ceremony under the trees followed by a state-of-the-art marquee reception, or opt for a tipi for a more bohemian vibe.

Ardkinglas offers complete flexibility as it’s ground or house hire only. You’ll have freedom to choose your own suppliers (from marquee providers to caterers and florists) and will get to organise every aspect yourself.
Their wedding co-ordinator, Kelly Robson, will be your point of contact; she’ll help you with booking your date and essential logistical info. She’ll give you a list of their recommended suppliers (although you don’t have to use them) and will check in on plans to make sure everything is appropriate for the venue.
Ardkinglas Estate isn’t just a wedding venue – it also has a farm, properties and woodland gardens open to the public at various times – so it’s fairly exclusive, operating on a one-wedding-at-a-time basis and giving couples who book it plenty of time for set-up and dismantle.
It means that every wedding at Ardkinglas is truly bespoke, and provides an exciting opportunity to work to your budget and plan your dream big day.
Because it’s a working estate, Ardkinglas is only available for wedding showarounds by appointment, but you can make one for a time that suits you best.
Get in touch with Kelly to book a showaround – there are still a few last remaining 2020 dates up for grabs, if you’re quick enough!
