The Lodge on Loch Goil

Bespoke Wedding Venue   |   Remote Location   |   Quick return on Investment   |   Repeat Client

A stunning addition to an exclusive use wedding venue

When Alice and Iain first opened their doors, the maximum capacity for a wedding or event was 24 people, meaning their maximum wedding package price was £10k. With this limiting the number of weddings a year and in recognising the increasing demand for larger weddings, Alice and Iain examined the case for expansion.

Another barrier to growing their business was the weather. With Humanist outdoor weddings legal in Scotland, coupled with the desire for stunning outdoor locations, Alice and Iain knew they had to innovate to accommodate this demand. So, they approached Mozolowski & Murray to design a second structure that allowed them to bring the outdoors in and take the indoors out.

It was plain to see how Mozolowski & Murray had transformed this space with the biggest asset being the wrap around bi-fold doors on both sides of the Conservatory. This creates a seamless connection with the outdoors, making it a versatile space for weddings to be held within the beautiful surroundings of Loch Goil, while guests enjoy the whole experience sheltered from the unpredictable Scottish climate.

Bespoke design in historical context
Full planning consent and project management
100% increased turnover within the first year
Large bi-fold doors for versatile use
All year-round light and space for exclusive use
Talking about the success of both the replacement glass extension and the additional Conservatory Alice said:

“Before the Conservatory was built there was no dance floor. Small ceilidhs were held in the Arts and Crafts Room after the ceremony, but this again limited us to small weddings and events. With the new space, we can now comfortably accommodate 70 guests which has meant the number of weddings we do per year has doubled. Now being able to offer a package price of up to £25k, our turnover has increased by over 100%.”

Being a 5-star exclusive use venue, Alice and Iain were eager to provide the best for their guests and their business, so their expectations on Mozolowski & Murray were very high. Not just in terms of the standard of workmanship but in knowing that Mozolowski & Murray were sensitive and accommodating to their existing business commitments. In no way could the business be compromised so Mozolowski & Murray ensured that scheduling was tailored to suit their timetable and promised to complete on time.
Enthusiastic to share her experience of working with Mozolowski & Murray, Alice said:

“Attention to detail was phenomenal and nothing was too much of a problem. A member of the management team presented onsite for regular site inspections which gave us the confidence and trust we needed to let them get on with it and enabled us to discuss progress with them face to face.

“The whole experience was an amazing one and if we decide to expand further, we wouldn’t consider using any other company. It’s also great to see the vans back just two doors up from us, where another Mozolowski & Murray Conservatory will be gracing the shores of Lochgoil!”

When asked about their overall experience:

“Mozolowski & Murray played an integral role in securing planning consent for the build which given the historical context of the Lodge was a complex process. From our very first visit to their Edinburgh Design Centre, the Management Team and the guys on site exceeded our expectations at every stage of the process. So much so, that we would say they are the best company we have ever worked with.”
