Sarah and Dave guided a very nervous bride and groom through the whole process and the venue is just superb, what a backdrop!
Fantastic for a wedding venue
An amazing place to tie the knot...
Fabulous wedding at The Shireburn Arms Hotel
What a credit to the organisation were all of the staff at the hotel. From the managers to all remaining staff, we found to be helpful, polite, constructive and patient with both of us and the whole wedding party. Having a full hotel occupancy from the Friday to the Sunday the food supplied at both the wedding and within the restaurant environment for all meals was of excellent quality and thoroughly enjoyed by all of our guests. The variety of choices at breakfast being second to none - one of our guests particularly enjoying the porridge with a dram of whiskey.
In particular, we would like to single out Cora the Wedding & Events Coordinator. From the first moment we met her late October 2015 up to and including the wedding weekend we were massively impressed by her professionalism and thoroughness. She listened to all our requests, responded speedily to our enquiries and acted upon any changes/additions to the wedding plans that we needed. We always felt that she was completely in control of all aspects of our wedding plans and that nothing was impossible. We would wholeheartedly recommend her and the Shireburn to any couple embarking on their wedding journey.
We have visited previously, both to stay over and have meals while planning our wedding, and we will certainly be returning again. Excellent !!
