Working with Clare, Angela, Donald, Piers and the Hopetoun and Heritage teams has been professional, yet so very personal and we can not thank you all enough! Everything on our most special day ran like clockwork and the teams worked so hard to make sure ourselves and all of our guests had the best day ever!

The ballroom was beautiful!
Thank you so very much for the absolutely perfect day we had on August 11th at Shona and Sean’s wedding. The whole day went seamlessly and if there were hiccups, we were blissfully unaware of them as we enjoyed our day. Hopetoun looked amazing and your attention to detail was second to none. The ballroom was beautiful and the tables and flowers certainly had the wow factor. Clare, you did a wonderful job and were a calming and capable presence on the day. Nothing was too much trouble for you and you ensured that we had the most magical day. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hopetoun as a wonderful wedding venue and you, as a wedding organiser.Sent on 18/06/2019
