New Wedding Packages at the Culloden Estate & Spa
Following Increasing Demand for Sustainable, Vegan & Personalised Ways to Tie the Knot
The Culloden Estate & Spa is delighted to have launched a new wedding offering this summer. The ultimate destination for a picturesque celebration set in the most romantic of landscapes, of Northern Ireland the hotel’s new tiered packages, extensive menu choices, and impressive production ideas, can be tailored to suit each couple’s desires for their dream wedding day. The luxury five-star hotel, part of the Hastings Hotels group, has created new experiences following growing trends to ensure utmost personalisation is possible in every aspect of the celebration, from the dedicated expert on hand throughout the organisation process, to the special preferences for pudding.
Having played host to countless magnificent weddings over the years, the Culloden Estate & Spa is a specialist in the field, and the new packages come as a response to the evolving desires of guests. Never before have guests placed as much importance on locality and sustainability, and this can be seen from the dishes served on the day to the decorations used throughout the celebrations. Many couples in the hotel request high tree centrepieces for the tables or artificial flowers that can be repurposed or reused, and confetti is made from dried petals or leaves.
The Culloden Estate & Spa has a commitment to local, seasonal produce which is at the heart of their culinary ethos. Northern Ireland has an abundance of sensational produce that the chefs use to artfully create the menus, and the hotel has seen that guests are making conscious choices when it comes to locality and sustainability. A particularly popular choice for the summer months is the individual tubs of ice cream sourced from nearby Glastry Farm, alongside a traditional confectioner’s sweet cart for example. Wedding cakes are no longer a ‘must have’ as the Culloden Estate & Spa has seen many more requests for cupcakes or wheels of local cheeses, rather than the traditional tiered cakes.
Niall Burns, the newly appointed General Manager of Culloden Estate & Spa remarks: “It is our aim to ensure we exceed the guests’ expectations on their wedding day, and the new offerings aim to create a basis from which we can tailor and adjust to each specific need, be it having the ceremony in the hotel rather than a church, or choosing a locally sourced cheese board for dessert. Our teams pride themselves on those details that are intrinsically important to the guests choosing to celebrate their special day with us.”
