Covid Wedding Feedback
Thank you so much! We had such an amazing time. All of our guests have been commenting on how beautiful the venue is, how amazing the food was, and how friendly and professional the team was. We all felt so safe with all the measures taken by the team on the day as well! Honestly couldn't have asked for anything more, even the livestream worked well!!

Wedding Day
When I first viewed Marlin's Wynd I knew it was the venue for us. Absolutely stunning and atmospheric! Everyone I spoke to during the planning and run up to our big day was friendly and helpful but big thanks to the Wedding Team who answered my almost daily questions with unendless patience! On the big day itself the venue looked spectacular. Food was gorgeous and table setting looked gorgeous. The staff were brilliant especially the Front of House Manager who looked after us right up to the very end of the evening when our taxi failed to show up, phoning and stopping taxis on the street for us! We honestly had the best day, and all our guests enjoyed themselves also. Wish we could do it all again!

Evening Celebration
I would just like to thank all of your team, especially those involved in our evening celebration, for such an amazing event put on for our wedding reception held in Marlins Wynd. We have all been impressed from initial set up to the final event and your professionalism and courtesy is astounding. We would especially like to mention the Front of House Manager who appeared to go over and above his duty in ensuring that our evening was everything we wanted it to be. He personally made sure that we were happy with the venue set up and ensured that all of our guests were catered for and comfortable. He did not appear to rest at all and was always courteous and pleasant and an absolute joy to have around. The food was also of a very high standard and was delicious. Overall we were extremely happy with your venue and service and our wedding day went without a hitch and will be memorable for a long time to come.

Marlin's Wynd Wedding
Everyone had a lovely time. The meal was excellent and commented on by lots of people. The Quality of the food was amazing. The service at the meal by the staff was the best I've ever had at a wedding. Guests also loved the venue and the atmosphere it created for the wedding ceremony. You also did a marvellous job of organised everything and making sure it all ran smoothly. Thank you again for making the day a special one to remember. As the mother of the bride I couldn't believe how stress free I was !! This was down to you and your team

Saturday Night
I want to thank you and your team so much for helping make Saturday night so special for me! I’ve had nothing but compliments for the venue, décor, and staff, from the guests who were there. It was a truly spectacular night and I wanted to say thanks for all your help throughout the year to get it organised. There’s no doubt I’ll be recommending this venue for friends and family in the future! Kindest regards, Becky

I can’t thank you enough for all the care and attention you gave to Megan and Fergus’s amazing wedding on Saturday! The Wedding Teams advice and guidance through the planning process was very much appreciated as was their patience with all the (very many!) queries about the food, all handled with good humour and a smile – just brilliant! The chef produced an absolutely superb Wedding breakfast for everyone including vegetarian, gluten free, nut free, dairy free, and lactose free items which met all our needs – no small task I’m sure. The waiting staff and bar staff were excellent, courteous, helpful and friendly. The venue itself was fantastic, just what the bride and groom wanted for the Ceremony, the Wedding breakfast and the Party – an extraordinary, romantic venue beautifully lit and oozing with history! Thank you again to everyone concerned in making it such a wonderful and memorable occasion. With our very best wishes to all at the Caves, and special thanks to the brilliant Wedding Team
