Full Description
Built well over a century ago, the Rhynd has been owned by the Foster family since the early 1950s, and up until the late 1990s the space was a working farm. The event space was a cattle shed and has been lovingly restored keeping all the unique features in place, creating a truly romantic rustic barn feel. Access to the venue is from Thursday through to Sunday, or Monday to Wednesday - we don't want you to feel rushed! All heating and lighting is included for the day and you are free to choose whichever suppliers you love the most! The venue can hold up to 180 seated and up to 230 for your evening. We also have a Farmhouse onsite that can sleep up to 10 people, the venue is situated just 15 minutes from St Andrews and Dundee. With ever changing fields in crop, Tentsmuir forest and Kinshaldy beach only 5minutes away there are plenty of photo opportunities!

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Lisa Monteith
I truly believe that all weddings should be unique to each couple, the beauty of The Rhynd, is that it's a blank canvas venue that allows you to choose your own suppliers! Giving you the ultimate freedom to make the venue your own. With 3 - 4 day access you have time to enjoy the whole process of setting up, you have that space to do all decorating yourself or to relax and let someone else lend a helping hand!

Big thank you!
Dear Lisa, I hope you are well. Just a quick message to send a big thank you to you and your team! One of our DJs Iain, was up playing the wedding of Tare and Elizabeth recently. He commented on how lovely all your team were and how efficient everything was. I know it is always great to hear feedback, so wanted to pas this on. Thank you to everyone for making our lives easier! We absolutely loved the venue as well, and have been keeping an eye on your events. We may come up to one of the car gatherings this summer, with a few like minded petrol heads. Thank you again and best wishes to you and all the gang. Rupert Funkwagen DJ services

Lisa and The Rhynd Café & Events team are brillian
Lisa and The Rhynd Café & Events team are brilliant. So welcoming, accommodating and help make your event experience as seamless as possible. The space was perfect for our end of December wedding, which we covered in fairie lights & evergreens collected from just down the road at Tentsmuir Forest. Lisa took such good care of David and I throughout a stressful 2 years of pandemic lockdowns, ever changing plans and the fear of the unknown. Her calm, optimistic and resourceful professionalism kept us as ease and made our experience so much more enjoyable. Thank you Rhynd Team for everything!! x

Wonderful twilight wedding
We had the most wonderful twilight wedding at The Rhynd on Saturday and are so happy we got to have our celebrations there. The venue couldn't have worked any better for the ceremony, food and dancing and having the farmhouse to stagger back to at the end was ideal. A&D Catering were fantastic and everyone looked after us so well throughout some rather nerve-wracking months of planning. Thanks especially to Lisa. We just wish we could do it all over again!

The service was outstanding
We held a wedding here. The Rhynd was a superb venue. The service was outstanding, and they were very flexible as we had to repeatedly rejig our dates and plans due to Covid. The venue itself is beautiful, and a perfect space to customise for your requirements. Lisa (the main contact) was super responsive and helpful, and was instrumental in ensuring everything was set up so our day could run smoothly.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

One of our couples had a mega party, we had a super pro lighting company come into the venue and set up some amazing uplighters, even more fairy lights, lazers outside and speakers everywhere. The place was ALIVE! They even had their own logo for the wedding shining onto one of our walls. The venue looked stunning, the couple were THE most amazingly well suited pair (and we see alot of couples!) and the atmosphere was electric!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Take your time to enjoy being engaged and have a proper think about what YOU as a couple want. It's so easy to be swayed by family but ultimitely its your day, so make sure that you are doing things your way. Get the big ones ticked off the list, venue (and date), band, florist, photographer and catering team, then relax and dream for a while. It's so important to keep the buzz and excitement, don't sweat the small stuff!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Hot air balloon! Our couple got engaged in a hot air balloon and they had the basket shipped into the venue for couples to climb into and take photographs in.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic Rustic Country Fairy-lights Your own

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

I love a good courtyard dance under the fairylights outside at sunset!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Not yet!

What’s your favourite canapé?

I love a grazing table! Give people a chance to stuff their faces with meats and cheeses rather than having to wait for the small canapes to pass by!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Pizza truck...or maybe a proper Italian pasta van....

What is your venue's most unique feature?

I think its the photo opportunities - beach, forest, farm fields in crop, poly tunnels of fruit, stone walled back drops, amazing gardens....there is a little bit of everything in there!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Honestly...our team, and how they look after every couple from start to finish! We are always on the phone, email, there in person. We treat each couple like our own family and really try to look after them on the set up days (endless coffees), on the day itself (bringing you that glass of champagne when needed, helping you into the loo before you walk down the aisle or picking confetti out of your hair and fixing you dress for those important photos) and on the day after (paracetamol and a fry-up?).
