We spent the most wonderful 3 days there...
By Gemma & Neil, on 17 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017
Choosing a wedding venue wasn’t easy for us. We had our heart set on Manhattan, but family come first and if they couldn’t make it then we couldn’t go. So, we were back to the drawing board...
Having never considered Scotland, our mother land, as the place we would marry, we had no idea what we wanted from our venue. All we knew was that we wanted the whole day/night to take place in the one setting.
We stumbled upon Cambo Estate during yet another internet search. How could we have missed it previously?! We decided we had to visit and see it in real life. We were not disappointed.
From our first meeting with Struan who eagerly showed us around every inch of the estate, we had fallen in love with Cambo. The rooms, the exterior, the acres of land- all simply breathtaking (looks cracking in photos!). The only thing that posed an uncertainty was that we struggled to visualise just how our wedding day would look within the opulence and antiquity of Cambo. We need never have worried as Frances was always on hand to answer any questions. She also goes beyond her role with the vast amount of knowledge and ideas she was always willing to offer. Frances was a source of calm and kindness during what can be a stressful time. She saved us from being ripped off by a company and put us in contact with the most amazing caterers (AWB).
Because of all the staff at Cambo and the utter beauty of this venue, we spent the most wonderful 3 days there, enjoying bbqs, parties, music and laughter with all our guests. We were made to feel completely at home whilst also like 2 of the most important people who had ever visited.
Best weekend from start to finish...
By Emma & Alan, on 29 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017
I wanted to let you know that we had the best weekend from start to finish and our family and friends keep telling us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. This was all made possible because of you and your staff. Yourself for answering months of emails and answering my silly questions. Your staff were great on the day and kept everything running smoothly. We really can't thank you enough and we will be regular visitors at the beautiful Cambo estate. Xx
The Perfect Wedding
By Claire & Gareth, on 06 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017
We were extremely lucky in all aspects on our wedding day, and not least the choice of venue. Frances and her team were welcoming from the moment we rang them up, and the immediacy of having direct contact with everyone involved in the set up was a massive bonus in the months leading up to our event. The house and beautiful setting speak for themselves but the passion and desire to make the most of it really stood out. We had the most perfect day thanks in large part to Cambo.
Thank you thank you, from the bottom of our hearts
By Audrey and Guy, on 13 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2017
We have so much to be grateful for and you are at the heart of everything we wanted for our wedding. From our first moment of contact your warmth, energy and kindness shone through. You looked after us from the get go and were so patient with all the emails back and forth - no question was dismissed, you did everything to help us and you offered all your advice and recommended list information freely and without hassle. It was all appreciated. Cambo provided us with the most magical experience and we are so thankful that we had our wedding there! We loved, cherished and enjoyed every single second of our time there. Everyone fell in love with Cambo and all our family and guests were thrilled to be there. We honestly believe everything worked out the way it was supposed to. It all felt perfect!
What you and Struan have done and what you offer to people for weddings is so special, so unique and so wonderful. Your whole team (especially Kay and Pauline as well as all the staff) were really helpful and generous with their time which we are so thankful for. We feel truly blessed that you guys and Cambo are part of our lives now - whether you like it or not ;) I don't know if words can really express our gratitude enough (and as an English teacher that's probably a first!) We wish you every success in the future and we have no doubt that you guys will be. Don't ever change. If my mam could have packed you up in her case, she would have! We were all truly enchanted by Cambo. So...thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts
Cambo offers everything your imagination desires!
By Katy & John, on 29 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Jul 2017
Cambo is more than just a wedding venue, it was unique experience. Frances and Struan treated us like family, welcoming all of our guests into Cambo House and going above and beyond to make our every (last minute) request come to life with a sparkle. From bracing dips in the North Sea, to excited trampolining kids, entertaining lawn games and late night impromptu fancy dress; Cambo offers everything your wedding imagination desires!
The best thing we have ever done!
By Jenny and Jonny, on 15 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017
Getting married at Cambo was the best thing we have ever done. We stayed in the house for the whole weekend with all of our friends and family and could not have had a better time. Frances and Struan are fantastic hosts. They were very helpful when it came to planning the wedding and made everyone feel very welcome when we all came to stay in the house. We really appreciated their help, kindness, and relaxed nature.
The house itself and surrounding grounds are a treasure trove of opportunities for good fun. We were offered a number of different options for organising our wedding and were absolutely delighted with what we finally chose. We had our ceremony and reception in the gardens. This was followed by a buffet upstairs in the drawing room, followed by dancing in the blue room. An after-party was then organised for more late-night dancing. It’s difficult to describe how much fun all of this was. A key point I would stress is that everything ran incredibly smoothly, which was down to the hard work of the staff. We really had nothing to worry about other than enjoying ourselves. The rooms and accommodation are all unique and incredibly comfortable. Everyone had their own space if they wished to take a break from the partying.
The following day, we relaxed on the nearby beach, played games in the garden whilst enjoying a BBQ. The weekend was rounded off with a bonfire in the woodland retreat. The whole thing was perfect.
We cannot recommend Cambo enough. I’ve never felt so happy, and even writing this testimonial brings a smile to my face. We will always be grateful to Frances and Straun for their hospitality and will cherish the weekend for the rest of our lives.
You treated us all like your friends!
By Andy Murray Father of Groom, on 03 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017
Dear Frances and Struan (and all the staff this weekend). Jenny and Jonny wanted a romantic wedding ceremony, followed by a weekend of partying with friends and family. They chose Cambo because it was cool and chique. The house, gardens and weather were great - but they weren't the star attraction. You were!!! I know its your livelihood but you treated us all like your friends. Thanks for making our son and daughter in law's wedding so happy. I'm a bloke and I don't do gushy messages - but hell look at this. Cheers to you both. Andy "
So much variety in one amazing place!
By Victoria & Tom, on 29 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017
Organising and holding our wedding at Cambo House could not have been more perfect, in any way. From the first contact with Frances, Struan and Kaye it became immediately apparent that we were dealing with a very professional team of people, but most obviously a team that clearly loves holding weddings in this beautiful house. Nothing was too much for any of them and the whole experience brought us, our families and friends so much happiness.
We were lucky enough to have use of the house for a whole weekend. We had a party in the courtyard on the Friday, the wedding reception in a marquee on the lawn on the Saturday, followed by a very late finish in the party woodland and then a brunch on Sunday and a dip in the sea for the remaining survivors. So much variety in one amazing place!
There are so many highs that it’s tough to list them all. The accommodation is fantastic and being able to have so many guests stay in the house really made the weekend. At the last moment the weather meant that we had to move inside the house for part of the day on Saturday. All the Cambo team accommodated this with the greatest of ease, leaping in to help and seamlessly moving all the guests to the beautiful drawing room. Finally, dancing until the sun came up in the party woodland was a major highlight that few of us will ever forget. Above all though, it is the people that stand out. Nothing was too much trouble, despite our endless questions and requests, and it is full credit to Frances, Struan, Kaye and the team that we felt so welcome, happy and at ease from the first meeting to the last goodbye.
Unique, magical and unforgettable
By Thalia and Nash, on 04 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 13 May 2017
Cambo is a treasure trove of a wedding venue. It has an embarrassment of riches to make your special day unique, magical and unforgettable. There are so many special secrets to be found at Cambo and Frances and Struan were relaxed and eager to help us make it the perfect day for us all. We filled the house with family and friends, over took the courtyard with our bar and flowers, and danced until the wee hours. Frances guided us through all of the preparations skilfully and was a pleasure to work with. Full of great ideas, and quick to iron out worries and advise, she made the preparations great fun and very easy. The day after our wedding we were lucky enough to have a Hindu Blessing in the gardens which was gorgeous seeing every one in sarees and beautiful Indian colours and fabrics. We feasted on an amazing curry banquet and played fizz fuelled lawn games into the afternoon. We were able and encouraged to add our own touches and to make the weekend our own, decorate ourselves and make each detail personalised and special. There was no curfew and many were still dancing as the sun rose over the grounds. We could not have asked for a more interesting or fun wedding venue, and have so many beautiful photographs to document our day. So many of our guests have returned to Cambo, just to visit, and everyone was wowed by the extraordinary and unusual beauty of the house and grounds. We loved every minute of our wedding preparations and the celebrations themselves were better than we could have ever imagined.

"We just had our perfect dream Wedding at Cambo House! We loved every second of it, throughout all of the planning and finally the big weekend itself, and our guests absolutely loved the House! The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and a joy to plan with. We couldn't have found a more perfect place to get married!"
Everything we hoped it would be
By Dan and Amelia, on 03 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Apr 2017
I know we said it several times during our wedding but we'd like to thank you and Struan once again for all your help and support over the weekend. Everything you did was great, all the guests had an amazing time and maybe most importantly, it was everything Milly and I hoped it would be.
This beautiful little corner of the East Neuk...
By Lucy & Jonny, on 06 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Apr 2017
From the first moment that we looked at Cambo House we knew that it was the place where we wanted to get married. The house itself; with its beautiful bedrooms and reception rooms, the gardens and grounds, and the location are all incredible, but even with all of this the most remarkable aspect of Cambo as a venue is Frances and Struan themselves. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and everything was organised with minimal fuss but to a very high standard. The option to stay in the house all weekend really adds an enormous amount to the event and by the end you definitely don't want to leave! This beautiful little corner of the East Neuk of Fife will always be so special to us, and we have Frances and Struan, and all at Cambo, to thank for everything that they did. We could not recommend Cambo highly enough.
Hopefully we'll see you both soon.
