Beautiful Venue with a fantastic, friendly and welcoming team.

My wife and I organised our Hogmanay wedding at Kinmount House with very short notice. After our previous dates had fell through due to the pandemic and government restrictions, we got in touch with Kinmount House to see if they could facilitate our ceremony. Their responsiveness and helpfulness were second to none. Their wedding coordinator, Victoria was great and answered all our queries promptly. We could not have asked for a more thoughtful, kind team, to help us with our day.

The Venue/Location is beautiful. The facilities available must be seen to be believed. Very picturesque.

We feel very grateful that we were able to have our ceremony, despite the restrictions, in such a charming location, with the help of an extremely professional outfit.

10/10 highly recommend.

Great team very professional and friendly couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day

From start to finish everything went smoothly. We hired the Croft the night before and had a great meal with guests to break the ice ready for the big day. Accommodation is beautiful. The wedding day we chose to get married in the ball room then drinks reception in the Italian gardens. We had cocktails in the sunshine then moved on to the pavilion for our evening reception.

Flexible, friendly and just amazing!

We cannot fault the team in any way. They are so committed, professional, friendly and supportive. Nothing was ever any trouble, and Victoria and her lovely team deserve so much credit for us having the most perfect day. The venue, the facilities, the cottages, food, just everything was just out of this world! I was provided with an interactive wedding planning tool called Aisle Planner, and I can 100% confirm that using this tool took away so much stress whilst planning. There is a clear time line of tasks, and when you should start preparing/working on those tasks, and once complete, the box is ticked, and your progress percentage is updated. It was incredibly satisfying seeing everything being gradually ticked off, when I think I would have become completely overwhelmed by my bog standard spreadsheet! The food on the day was incredible! Credit to the chef and team, as every single one of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the classic barbecue we opted for! Also the pizzas for the reception buffet went down a treat. Both the food and drinks packages we opted for were excellent value for money, with all the fresh and delicious produce used. We cannot fault anything from our experience. We both took away so much from our regular meetings with the team during the process and always felt in safe hands, and were made to feel like we were not just a number. The whole day, and everything we requested was specific to us. Even on the day with the beautiful weather, Victoria offered to change things around to move the drinks reception outside, which was just such a lovely touch, as she, as she told me just wanted our day to be perfect. I could go on forever about how amazing every single person is at Kinmount House, and their love for what they do shines through. Everyone who played a part, management, planning staff in the office, bar and waiting staff, each and every one of them made our day perfect. Communication and timings were seamless between the team, during planning and on the day, and I didn't even worry about a thing on the day because I knew the staff had every single thing covered, down to the smallest detail. This venue is just incredible, and i am so glad we chose Kinmount House, as there is just nowhere like it!

Dumfries and Galloway's hidden gem.

We are not even sure where to begin with our review of Kinmount House- Absolutely everything was incredible!

After the disappointment of postponing our May Wedding we stumbled across Kinmount on facebook purely by chance (everything happens for a reason). We both fell in love with the look and feel of the venue over pictures alone. However when we visited it surpassed our expectations. Kinmount House is unique, stunning and very peaceful.

From the moment we first made contact through to our wedding day everything felt so personal to us. George, Fiona and Victoria were dedicated to making our day as incredible as it could be (especially under such unconventional circumstances- Covid 19).

We truly experienced the fairytale wedding at Kinmount House and have memories that will last us a lifetime.

Kinmount House

The service provided both in the preparation of our wedding and on the day itself was second to none. During very difficult times, because of Covid, the owners and staff at Kinmount House managed to ensure that we and our guests had a wonderful day. The house and grounds provide a perfect backdrop for any wedding and we have some beautiful photograph's of the day.
The catering was exceptional, and liaison with the chef prior to the wedding was very relaxed.
Victoria was unfailing helpful throughout the preparations, and Alex ensured that everyone was looked after at the reception.
Some of our guests stayed in the apartments on the estate and they were extremely impressed with the standard of the accommodation.
We would have no reservations about recommending Kinmount House to anyone planning their wedding.
