We chose Murrayshall as our wedding venue due to the beautiful grounds and classy building, with some really nice Scottish details weaved throughout.
In the lead up, there were a few changes in the wedding planning team, which caused some communication issues, but our wedding co-ordinator Alison in the couple of months before was absolutely terrific. Experienced, positive, attentive, with a great eye for detail - she was a great comfort for us in the lead up and during the day itself.
The rooms in the hotel were beautiful and the spaces for our ceremony and evening reception were terrific. The food was fantastic at the wedding breakfast and the kitchen were brilliantly accommodating to our guests’ dietary requirements. The turnaround of the rooms between ceremony and dinner was seamless, and the catering staff were really attentive to our guests.
There were a few details through the day that could have been improved, however. A lack of communication between the wedding team and hotel staff resulted in some of our guest’s items being put in our bridal suite by accident. There was also a bit of a lack of control around the planned entrance for our guests arriving and entering the ceremony room as well, which impacted some of our planned videography. Any of these minor details we think were down to the venue still gaining experience as a wedding host and the bad weather we had on the day added some extra complication.
Overall - we were delighted with the day and service we received. We’ll be back in the future for a few hotel stays to reminisce on our beautiful wedding day!
