After a mix up with our initial venue, we were delighted to find our Òran Mór had availability for our date and my husband and I firmly believe that this hiccup was the best thing to ever happen to us! Maia was brilliant in keeping us up to date with planning, nothing was ever a bother for her to check or confirm and even with last minute changes, the team were amazing in ensuring everything went to plan on our big day. Our guests raved about the beautiful venue which provided plenty of photo ops for them and they loved the food served.
We thoroughly enjoyed the meal tasting the venue offered three months before our wedding - narrowing down meals from their wide range proved very difficult as everything on the menu sounded exquisite. We opted for the tapas trio, chicken balmoral, daube of beef and vanilla crowdie cheesecake to be included in our menu which went down a treat for many if not all our guests who opted for these dishes. Many commented that the quality of food was excellent, particularly in catering for a large number of people.
The Òran Mór team were excellent in communicating with our suppliers - a number of whom they had worked with previously (at our first consultation we were given a detailed list of recommended suppliers which helped us greatly) - those whose first time working at the venue had fed back to me that communication and organisation was swift and easy which was great to hear.
Although we had plans to have photographs taken in the nearby Botanic Gardens and Ashton Lane on the day, the monsoon that hit Glasgow that day meant this wasn’t possible; however, Òran Mór has beautiful places inside that were perfect substitutes which meant we didn’t feel like we had missed out.
The bar staff, events manager and banquet manager who were working at our wedding were all very approachable and friendly to everyone - another point many guests made.
Òran Mór made our wedding day perfect and planning on the run up was very smooth and fuss free. I’d recommend this venue to all future brides and grooms - this is not a venue to miss!!
