Weddings Venue in Nairn near Inverness

The Golf View Hotel & Spa is such a romantic place, perfect for a couples special day.  The hotel can host civil weddings and comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests. Our experienced staff will ensure that every requirement is met, from décor to dance bands, and welcome you to choose Golf View’s inclusive wedding package, or speak to us about our bespoke service.

The lush grass lawn which forms part of Golf View’s grounds is a popular place for wedding photography, with the sandy beach and the Moray Firth waters meeting the horizon creating a naturally beautiful backdrop. 

  • Wedding license
  • Space for up to 120 guests
  • Spacious grounds with Moray Firth backdrop
  • Beach side location
  • Award-winning kitchens

A part of Golf View’s grounds is a flat lawn area positioned to the side of the hotel, accessible through the conservatory exit and facing the beach front. This area can accommodate a marquee to hold your ceremony and evening celebrations holding up to 250 people, and including a dance floor and lounge area.  And if you want to take your vows in the open air, this can be set up separately, with the marquee prepared for your wedding breakfast and evening celebrations only.

The Firth Suite benefits from natural daylight and its own dance floor and bar area. Panoramic views right across the Moray Firth, spacious with modern décor and can comfortably cater for up to 100 guests.

The Moray Lounge is great for smaller weddings. It is warm and contemporary; its décor of tartan and tweeds. For a more intimate party of up to 30 people, it provides a cosy lounge. A favourite set up here is with one big table with all seated around facing into each other. An open log fire, beach view, attention to detail and on-hand service just make it a cosy wee room.  

The fine-dining Fairways Restaurant is elegantly decorated with dark wood, old-styled panelling and chandeliers. The dimmed lighting and candle light help to set the mood in the evening and the big bay windows are lovely for taking photos by. 

Golf View Hotel & Spa offer an inclusive wedding package of great value, and is equally happy to provide bespoke detail and assistance to all of our bride and grooms.  The Golf View’s wedding package is inclusive of the following elements, whoever it is your day, and we can tailor make any package that works best for you.

  • Four poster bedroom for the bride and groom on your wedding night and full Scottish breakfast the morning after

  • Use of cake knife and stand

  • Crisp, classic white napkins and table linen

  • Acres of gardens and a choice of public areas for your photographs

  • Special accommodation rates for your wedding guests

  • Complimentary car parking

View our menu and drinks selectors on this page for an overview of what our kitchens, awarded an AA Rosette for Culinary Excellence, can create for you on your wedding day, from canapés prior to the wedding breakfast, the main meal itself and options for your evening food choice.

If there is anything on the menu you like the sound of, though may have an idea to tweak, a meeting with our chef is most welcomed where you can discuss exactly what you have in mind. Again, the options given here are just that, and our kitchen brigade welcome the challenge of tailor made detail and creating bespoke dishes. 

Golf View is licensed to hold civil, religious and humanist weddings.

Your ceremony can be held in the Firth Suite, Fairways Restaurant, Moray Lounge or front lawn,  a space which can accommodate up to 100 guests, or you can choose to take your vows out in our gardens, in the warmer months.
