Tie the naut at Portavadie Marina with its new winter wedding package


We fell hard for Portavadie Marina when we headed to the jaw-dropping location for our latest issue’s bridal shoot, and its new winter wedding package is making us misty-eyed all over again.

For £4,995 from November 2016 to March 2017, shack up with 30 guests in the exclusive-use Lodge Rooms and Studio Apartments, including continental breakfast in the Lodge Kitchen and Bar and free rein of the new Leisure Experience. You can head to the gym, but we won’t judge you for floating around the pool relaxing instead!

Exchange vows in the waterside Revie Suite, before hosting your three-course wedding breakfast in the party-ready Barclay Suite. As well as help from your dedicated wedding planner, and toastmaster to keep things moving at your reception, you’ll also be able to admire the floral table arrangements and stationery that comes as part of the package deal.

Finally, you can steal away to eco-retreat Tighnamara (sitting right on the beach) at the end of it all, drifting off to the waves lapping on the shore – and return on your anniversary for a two night stay to relive the whole dream again. What a bargain!
