    Amazing wedding venue!

    We had an amazing time at our wedding in The Ghillie Dhu, we honestly could not have chosen a better venue. Amy, our wedding coordinator, was fantastic. We can’t thank her enough for all the pre-wedding work and for all that she did on the day. It went so smoothly, we were so impressed with the staff working that day and many of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they’d been to. The canapés were very tasty, the wedding breakfast was commended by all our guests and the buffet was outstanding. Great testimonial right there from our guests alone. Honestly, when we look back at the photos and see how good the Ghillie Dhu stands out is amazing. The hall is so versatile, when the drapes are pulled around the organ pipes it makes for a magical, intimate ceremony and then when the hall is set for the wedding breakfast and reception it is breathtaking. We 100% made the right choice of venue, we really could not recommend it highly enough.

    From the get-go, Kirsty was nothing other than Out of this World in every aspect of the role. Her communication, organisation and general enthusiasm for every detail kept our levels of confidence at the highest level - right from our first meeting right through until after the day had been and gone.

    Kirsty’s passion for perfection and sheer professionalism kept us feeling great - small amendments required on the day which may have been seen as a big deal were completed discreetly and with such finesse that it would have gone completely unnoticed to anyone who was unaware. She is truly out of this world and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help make our day as beautiful as we both imagined. Thank you!!!

    From the moment we stepped into the breath-taking auditorium space, we knew the Ghillie Dhu was the one for us!

    Being a ‘Pinterest bride’, I had so many bespoke options I wanted to incorporate into our day, and from start to finish nothing was ever a trouble. From the hiring of the gold chairs to match the colour scheme, to the ‘Prosecco and Peroni’ reception, the bespoke food options to the ‘Mexican Nacho Bar’ in the evening. You offered us an amazing package as it was, but by going above and beyond, you helped make our day so personal to us.

    Thank you a million times over to everyone at the Ghillie Dhu from the Chef for the incredible food (wow), the sound team for working with our String Quartet, Band and Sax Player and to the staff for the continuous impeccable service. In particular though Thank you to our fabulous co-ordinator Kayleigh - You were an absolute dream to work with and made it your mission to make sure the day was as magical as it was!!"
