Our wedding day
We were completely impressed with NPC from start to finish. We had an amazing coordinator, Emily, who was always quick to reply to emails, set up zoom meetings with us as we don’t live in Glasgow and generally was always efficient and helpful. On the day, the decorations were set up beautifully and the staff ensured that we were on track and helped us where to stand/move. Even though we ran over time we did everything we wanted to and it didn’t feel stressed at all. We would 100% recommend to anyone getting married in Glasgow!

June Wedding
We had our wedding at the Piping Centre in June. Emily and the team were fantastic. Beautiful venue, brilliant piper and the food was fantastic - the standard was well above what is often served at wedding venues! Couldn't have asked for more!

Everything was done to perfection.
Our wedding venue... where everything was done to perfection. Building provides a great backdrop with tasteful decor which is just Scottish enough. Love the historic black & white photos on the walls, the stained glass and the way the light shines into the blue room. The food was well presented and lovely just like in the bistro. The service great. The bar stocked with Scottish craft beers and gins impressed the guests. The organising, management of the day, accommodating the providers of cake, decor, entertainment - all done very professionally. The venue size created a great atmosphere for a party evening. Great location for guests travel and accommodation with lots of hotels in surrounding streets and travel hubs everywhere. Thanks to all who helped create a fantastic day.

Massive Thank You!
Joe and I would like to say a massive thank you to both of you for all your help and support, and patience, given throughout our wedding planning. You answered every request and offered support beyond what we could have imagined. Thank you for this, it made the planning process less stressful and more enjoyable. On the day of the wedding when I arrived at the NPC, I immediately felt welcomed. Caitlin was there to greet me and my dad and did so calmly and very positively. All of the wedding party commented on how welcome they felt and how smooth the day ran. It was well-planned and ran to the schedule decided by, both, me and joe.

I had my wedding here in March and I have to say Caitlin & the team were fantastic, from the early planning stages to delivering the most wonderful special day. All our guests had a brilliant time & the day was completely stress free, only complaint I have is that it went in far too fast!! Great staff, great venue special memories. xxx
