Couldn’t recommend enough!
Planning a wedding is stressful but add a pandemic into the mix I don’t think it could have been anymore stressful. However From start to finish Caroline was always at the end of an email or call to reassure us and answer the many questions we had with plans/restrictions changing constantly. Anytime I felt stressed as a bride I would leave our meeting at Houstoun House feeling excited about our day again and that was down to Caroline. No amount of questions or queries were too much! On the day everything ran smoothly, we genuinely felt like the most special people. The food was just perfection and all of our guests agreed. We can’t believe it took our wedding day to enjoy a meal at Houstoun House and we will absolutely be back at the restaurant! I would highly recommend Houstoun House to any couples considering it as their venue. Thank you to the whole Macdonald Houstoun House Team for the best day!

We cannot recommend the team at Macdonald Houston House highly enough. Between the beautiful venue and their expertise to make our day the best it could be. Caroline, their wedding Co ordinator, was so helpful in every way, no question or issue was too big. She really helped to make our wedding vision a reality. Thank you again to all the staff at Houston House for making our wedding the best day.
