Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Oh my, that's a tough one. This sounds cliché but every wedding at Glen Tanar is the 'best' wedding. I love working with couples to plan the wedding of their dreams. So many aspects of our ballroom can be tailored to fit your style, look or feel. That's my favourite part about this job. Working with you to plan your 'best' wedding.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Mood boarding! Find your style, look and feel first then I can help recommend the best suppliers that can fulfil your vision. Also checklists … I love a list!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Personalized polaroid pictures to each guest. Some of them were very funny as well.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Definitely our secluded trout loch which is surrounded by the towering ancient Caledonian Pine Forest.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Maybe one or two ...
What’s your favourite canapé?
I'm a sucker for smoked Salmon blinis. I know it's a bit 'vanilla', but it is a classic for a reason. Other than that I do love Venison Carpaccio... with Glen Tanar Venison of course!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Stovies are an absolute Scottish classic, and they always go down a treat in the Glen Tanar Ballroom. Also, Wark Farm Pies make delicious personal pies made with their secret hot water pastry recipe. Yum!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
It has to be the ballroom's vaulted ceiling with over 700 antlers. As a traditional Scottish sporting estate the ballroom's ceiling gives a nod to our estates rich heritage. The ballroom was once the music room for the original Glen Tanar House. It is actually the only remaining section of the house today. Over the years I can only imagine all the grand celebrations the ballroom has held.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
At the end of the day the reason we do this is to bring love and joy to all of our couples. All of the feedback and praise means the world to us. I'm especially proud that we are continuing the ballrooms legacy as a grand Scottish entertaining venue and I cannot wait to hold so many more celebrations here.
