Couldn't have asked for better!
Morning all I just want to say the biggest thank you for welcoming me and Bruce to the castle and allowing us to have our ceremony with yourselves, along with our families. It was just amazing and better than anything I could have ever imagined!! The photos are so stunning which was exactly what I was aiming for. We really did have the best of both worlds. Natalie - your help on the day was second to none. I also have your confetti baskets here which we will drop off again. Fiona - thank you for all the initial organizing and for the email of well wishes before hand much appreciated. Cosmo - for owning and looking after such a beautiful place. Thank you all again Mr and Mrs McWilliam Bruce and Gemma

A Fairytale Dream Come True!
Firstly we wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for all your help in making Andy and Lindsay's celebrations so special. We made so many wonderful memories which will be treasured and shared for many years to come. We wanted specifically to mention Natalie who helped us so much in navigating the whole wedding planning process, and being there for us during our stay at the castle and on the actual day keeping us all on track. You were always so friendly, always approachable and able to support us in lots of ways. Thank you so much. Thank you too Cosmo for allowing us to share your family home. It was tremendous. You enabled our son to fulfill a lifelong dream to live in a castle and marry his sweetheart in a fairytale castle. Cluny is so unique and stunning and their wedding was a dream come true!

Simply the best wedding anyone could dream of!
Thank you so much for helping us to make our dreams come true. We couldn't have done it without you! Planning an international wedding isn't easy, unless you have Fiona! It was absolutely beautiful from start to finish! The castle was lovely, the chapel was breathtaking, and the staff were kind, professional and so helpful. Natalie made sure everything ran smoothly. She is a gem. Moya is a top notch cook whose presentations were a work of art and Cosmo treated us like family allowing us into his home. Watching the sunset was the perfect end to a perfect day. We had a dream team taking care of us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jolene and Steven x

THE perfect Scottish wedding venue with THE most helpful staff
I would recommend Cluny Castle to anyone planning a wedding, or any event, in a heartbeat. The venue space is stunning and very functional. The Castle grounds are meticulously maintained and overall remarkably beautiful. The bedrooms, kitchen, etc for those staying in the Castle are so cozy, wonderfully decorated, and well equipped with anything you could need. In addition, the Cluny staff (event coordinators, housekeeping, etc) are extremely helpful, communicative, professional, and insightful. They will make sure your event goes off perfectly.
