An unforgettable day

By Stewart & Kathryn McLeod, on 14 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2017

The whole day ran so well and we both felt so relaxed throughout which was due to Jane and Shona. We couldn't have asked for better hosts for our wedding and you made it an unforgettable day.

The day was everything we had hoped for.

What can we say, thank you, thank you, thank you. My husband and I would like to take the time to thank you both very much for all you did for us in the run up to and day of our wedding. I can't believe it was three weeks ago already! It truly was the most amazing day of our lives. We really couldn't have wished for anything more, even the weather was on our side. Glen Tanar Ballroom and grounds was the perfect place to have our wedding. Once our photos are online I will send you the details so that you can have a look at the great memories you both helped create. We honestly can't thank you enough.

Venue Service

By Jim & Mairi Ewen, on 09 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Apr 2016

Where do we start? We are so grateful for the way you ran Paisley and Darren’s wedding. It was faultless. A perfect day to enjoy and remember. You were friendly, efficient, discreet and most of all we had total confidence in you to take care of everything and everybody. It felt like we were dealing with a friend rather than a business. We appreciate all your hard work. Thank you.
