    2020 Wedding

    It’s a daunting decision deciding to go ahead with a wedding this year, especially if it’s one you might not have initially envisaged due to the current regulations.

    However, speaking from experience, we can honestly say we’re so glad we persevered. The whole day was the intimate wedding we hadn’t thought about before, but now we couldn’t recommend enough. Saying that, the decision to continue was made a whole lot easier by the suppliers who made it possible. Especially those at Newhall Estate.

    Jak, Tricia and Ben make a fantastic team. Welcomed from the first visit, we knew Newhall was somewhere we could fashion a wedding that was truly our own. From the moment we arrived on the Friday, we were made to feel as though the house was our own. Jak maintained constant and clear communication with us throughout, interpreting the restrictions and seamlessly making the whole event possible. If nothing else, you must let Tricia do your flowers. Obviously a seasoned horticulturalist, she knows well what works and our arrangements couldn’t have been more perfect.

    Where do we begin?
    From the first visit to Newhall on a very snowy morning in February to be greeted with homemade brownies, coffee and very warm and welcoming smiles I instantly knew that Newhall Estate would be the venue for Ross and I to get married.
    We also were accommodated on various visits throughout the months leading up-to the wedding which was so helpful in the planning process.
    On arrival at Newhall on the Friday before our wedding we were greeted by the Events Manager and he couldn’t have been more helpful. He did everything was asked for immediately which allowed us to set up with no hitches whatsoever.
    The bedrooms on site are stunning, I’ve never slept in such a luxurious room and the towels....where do you even buy such big towels! The cottages are great too, equipped with kitchens and all you need for a weekend break and give guests a chance to escape in a tranquil spot only a few minutes from the house.
    The wedding day was brilliant and having a catering team take care of the day meant we could relax knowing it was all being taken care of. There is an obvious relationship between the catering company we used and Newhall so everything was taken care of.
    Both Ross and I loved every minute of our time on every visit we made to Newhall. The happy memories we have there is hugely credited to the team and the fantastic venue!
    We both firmly believe this will become one of Scotland’s most exquisite venues and wish the Team at Newhall so much luck in the future. We will definitely wave when we pass heading up from the south into Edinburgh!
