Macdonald Crutherland House Hotel ticked every box. We were married in October so there was a natural Autumnal theme, however the Crutherland is magical whatever the season. The long drive through the woodland from the main road, gives a sense of excitement and the ancient trees are vibrant with autumnal colours. The environment was perfect for our photographer and videographer.
The house itself is charming and full of character, set within several acres of countryside, the sky bursting from a building free horizon and, of course, the sun shining through the trees, builds your appreciation for the peace and fresh air. The tastefully modernised rear quarters include a Spa with swimming pool, gym and sauna. My family and friends came from Guernsey, London and Ipswich, so these extra amenities were gratefully received.
This brings me onto the staff. I simply could not have asked for more from them, and in fact gave me the confidence to invite family and friends from such a distance. Wedding co-ordinators, Jordan and Brittany removed all pressure of planning a wedding, and finalised all the details no matter how small.
