    Could not have had a better venue

    We have just had our wedding at Kippilaw House and I could not have asked for a better venue. From the moment we chose it Lil the owner could not have been more accommodating and was happy to answer any questions and allowed me to have things my way, ( I had a horse bring me up the driveway). Having exclusive use of the house from the Friday night to the Sunday day was amazing it gave my family and I a nice chilled space to meet each other before the wedding and be relaxed in the morning of the wedding then a relaxed leaving day. The people who stayed were so happy to have all the days together it made it a real family affair. My guests could not get over the taste of the food they raved about it all night. The staff that are there aren’t intrusive during the meal and they could not be friendlier or more accommodating. The decoration and whole look of the house is stunning every room is differently decorated and the modern bathrooms mixed with antique furnishings really set a great vibe. My friends and family all said how different and amazing my wedding was and it would not have been this way without it being at Kippilaw House.

    A very special day, in a very special place!

    Where do we start?
    Kippilaw is a stunning house with history, character and beautiful gardens. But what makes Kippilaw so special are the owners, Lil and Douglas. They listened to our ideas and completely understood what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and their 'anything's possible' approach made the planning process stress-free and great fun.
    We hired Kippilaw for the whole weekend which meant the we could relax and enjoy the experience with our family and friends. Although we planned to have the ceremony outside, it rained. But without any fuss, Lil and her team moved the ceremony inside and we got married on the landing of the stairs with some of our loved ones looking down from the 1st floor and others looking on from the lobby. It was beautiful and we wouldn't change it for the world. My granny said it was the most beautiful ceremony she'd ever seen!
    The atmosphere at dinner was electric- there was so much laughing. The service and bar staff were brilliant. They worked extremely hard, as we had a lot of guests, remaining professional but at the same time friendly and relaxed. However the highlight of the day was Lil's food. It was absolutely sensational. So many people have told us that it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding, some people even said it was the best meal that they'd had EVER.
    Kippilaw is more than just a venue. It's a beautiful house in a wonderful location, run by a kind and accommodating family, where we have made the happiest of memories. We can't thank Kippilaw enough for giving us such a truly special day that we will always remember.
