Perfect venue

We had the most amazing weekend at Newhall Estate! The venue is stunning and the team are so good at running weddings there. Our day ran so smoothly, both Yvonne and Jak were incredibly nice and attentive and the housekeeping team are also excellent. The whole weekend couldn’t have gone better thanks to them. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

The Best Wedding Venue in Scotland

Newhall Estate is, in our opinion, the single best wedding venue in Scotland. Our wedding and the venue were described as a ‘fairy-tale’ by several guests, and we couldn’t agree more. Not only are the house and grounds absolutely stunning, providing an idyllic backdrop for the wedding, but we also got to stay there with 40 of our closest friends and family for the whole weekend.

This is really how all weddings should be. It allowed us to spend time with our guests before the day, our families could get to know each other, and we were more relaxed since we didn’t need to travel anywhere and could get ready in the house on the day itself.

All those reasons already make Newhall an amazing venue. But what really sets it apart from the others we looked at was the Newhall team. Jak was in continuous contact with us throughout the planning process, supporting us through several date changes and multiple visits, always patiently answering all our questions. Yvonne and Saskia were delightful and experts at managing the day itself. It was almost like having two good friends there who appeared just whenever you needed them.

The team can only be described as exceptional, the personal touch we received from beginning to end was second to none. Everyone really went above and beyond to ensure the day was everything we had dreamed of.

Best day of our lives!

We knew right away that Newhall was the venue for us! On our wedding weekend it exceeded all expectations, the venue provided for everything from arrival on the Friday to departure on Sunday! It was extra special being able to spend the full weekend with 40 of our nearest and dearest! To top the day off it snowed and the venue was transformed into a winter wonderland! After 3 dates, it was 100% worth the wait and we can’t recommend Newhall enough to other couples getting married! Our guests thought it was pretty epic as well!

Best weekend at Newhall

Newhall gave us the best weekend of our lives. The staff are incredible and are there to help you with anything from the first viewing to you leaving after you wedding weekend is over. We love the homely touches and even had our flowers for the day made from their gardens. There is no need for any room turn overs as they have an area for every part of your day which our guests loved. The caterers they use are fantastic (we used hickory) the food was incredible. All our guests that stayed loved their rooms but the bridal suite is something special. The grounds are stunning with plenty of photo opportunities all of which are accessible via a golf buggy which was fantastic when wearing a wedding dress. Newhall will always be special to us not only for the memories but for all the support we received from the staff who helped exceed our expectations in every way possible.

Best day of our lives at the best venue!

From the moment we were shown around we knew there was no other venue for us! With accomodation for our nearest and dearest so the wedding lasted for three days, to the incredible bridal suite and house, amazing grounds and a team that were second-to-none. No question too silly in the run up and Ben and Richard made the day feel effortless for us so we could focus on having the time of our lives, and Tricia was exceptional providing flowers grown on site for our bouquets and buttonholes. No extra touch was too much, and Ben kept us so calm during the preparations, even sorting my dress and veil as I walked down the aisle. They listened to everything we needed but weren’t imposing, we only noticed they were there when they were keeping us right. I wish I could give 100 stars!

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.

Newhall

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!
Kirsty and Ross xx
