    Our Dream Wedding Day!

    We had the most special wedding at Arniston house. A truly beautiful venue, with a very knowledgable and helpful team who went above and beyond to allow us the day we had envisioned (even during a pandemic). Our day was expertly coordinated and flawlessly executed by Kim, who was always on hand to answer any queries. An exclusive Scottish venue offering a dream location for any event!

    We cannot thank Arniston and the team enough - our wedding was everything we could have imagined and more!!

    Arniston House's reply:

    This wedding holds a special place in all our hearts. Chris and Amber were amazingly patient and flexible as we worked our way through lockdown, and they were always available. Their sense of humour, pure joy in each other and the blissful celebration with the family and friends will always be remembered by the team making their wedding an absolute pleasure to be part of. Thank you both so much for sharing your day at Arniston.
