Thank you!
The Trades Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding. It is absolutely stunning inside, the decor looks brilliant and given that it’s in the centre of Glasgow it was convenient for everyone who attended. The service we recieved from Laura and Elaine the wedding co-ordinators was second to none. They couldn’t have done anything more for us and nothing was ever a problem. They kept in regular contact with us, answered questions (no matter how silly they seemed) really quickly and helped to keep the stress levels to a minimum. The food on the day was lovely too. We opted for a choice menu, the guests appreciated having options and spoke highly of their meal. I’d highly recommend Trades Hall as a wedding venue to anyone who is ready to begin planning their wedding.

Well, what can I say about the Trade Halls? The staff are fantastic the venue is outstanding. From starting our wedding journey to the aftercare I could not fault them at all. Laura the wedding co-ordinator was phenomenal always made sure that everything was sorted for you and there was no question or request that she wouldn't attempt to sort for you. If I could I would do it all over again. Cannot fault any of my day enough due to the care they provided.

I can’t think of a better venue to have had our wedding. From start to finish, Laura and Elaine were so friendly, knowledgeable and professional, which made planning the day so easy. Not many of our guests had been to Trades Hall before and they were blown away by how amazing the venue was and that it was hidden away in the centre of town. I would highly recommend it, some of our favourite things were how accommodating the team was, Laura really helped us make it our own; the food was delicious and communication before, during and after was seamless. There was a point where we had forgotten our cake stand but they were going to lend us one! It was this attention and dedication that we were so grateful of. Thank you so much.

From the planning stages until our wedding day we couldn’t fault Trades Hall. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and were very accommodating. We had a brilliant day, and had many compliments with regards to Trades Hall from our guests. Everyone was so impressed with the beautiful venue itself, the staff (their service in particular) and the meal. Thank you to Trades Hall for contributing to our memorable day.

We got married in Trades Hall back in 2015 and it was the party of a lifetime for us. The table setting was casual for us and what we asked for was never too much!!! Definitely recommend this venue to anyone.
