In the Storstugan restaurant, Tjolöholm’s former village hall, you can celebrate your marriage in a traditional turn of the century setting. The intimate hall makes for a memorable evening, with menus based on local, organic produce.
“It was like stepping into a fairytale, so different to anything else I had seen so far” said the young priest Gustaf Ankar on his first visit to Tjolöholm in 1904. Over a hundred years on, Tjolöholm is still a world of it’s own. The castle, the chapel, the Storstugan, the workers’ village and the gatehouse, all snugly fitted into the beautiful, untouched coastal setting, draw thousands of visitors every year.
The castle chapel makes for a moving service. The chapel seats up to 180 and is relatively small, built in the Scottish style. As the church is ecumenical it is open for all Christian orders. From the chapel it is only a short walk down the hill to the Storstugan restaurant. A service can also be arranged outside, with a view over the ocean and surrounding meadows.
Welcome drinks can be taken in the courtyard, or inside one of the rooms before you sit down to supper. During the winter an open fire crackles in the fireplace, and during the summer you can enjoy a beautiful view over the Halland landscape. The Storstugan restaurant sits up to 60 guests, but we do not normally take parties of under 30 people.
The apartment on the second floor of the Storstugan is a very romantic location for the wedding night. The apartment consists of a bedroom and a large bathroom, fitted with a large wooden bathtub. In the evening we provide champagne and fruit, and in the morning a delicious country breakfast awaits. The wedding night can also be spent in the picturesque gatehouse cottage.
In the former workers’ village at Tjolöholm there are houses for the guests to stay in. All the houses have their own gardens, and traditional Swedish tiled fireplaces. There are currently twentysix beds in the workers’ village.
If you choose to arrange your marriage at the Storstugan restaurant you get your own wedding planner, who you meet before the wedding. They will help with all the arrangements, and also be there to help out during the big day. You can always turn to us for help with anything, big or small, regarding the wedding. We even offer help regarding invitations, seating cards, menus and the day’s program.
