What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't sweat the small details, nobody knows the minute things except you. Enjoy your day and deal with small stresses afterwards.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Every wedding has something touching, from the fathers first look at his daughter, to the speeches before the big party. Our favourite part of the day is when the couple see each other for the first time and then reading their vows to one another!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Modern, Relaxed, stunning, romantic and special

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

From our balcony onto the drinks reception, or from our heights suite with the stunning view up to the castle

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We couldn't tell... Our lips are sealed!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Haggis Bon Bons- we like it traditional!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

It has to be the wedding cake from our couples, followed closely by a breakfast roll, filled with bacon or portobello mushroom!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

It has to be the breathtaking view from the Heights suite up towards the Castle, or our evening reception suite of rooms which are included in our packages and allow for break out areas and multiple activities!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our passion for ensuring our guests every need is catered for and expectations are exceeded.
