Easy peasy

Brilliantly done. Being so busy I wanted a venue that would just get it done. They did that and did it perfectly!!! Everyone commented on the brilliance of the Roslin!

Absolutely stunning. Flawlessly amazing

Well, Amy and the team - what can we say?? Our day was absolute perfection. Here are some things we would like to comment on to demonstrate just how amazing the day was:
Ceremony - complete attention to detail - we were not going to have a signing table as we had legally married the day before - Amy was honest and said the room would look bare and she was absolutely right - so glad we decided to listen to Amy's advice. The room was decorated stunningly - there was such attention to detail - extras of our flowers were placed tastefully in vases around the room, there were lanterns and candles that we had not asked for but made the room look more finished. There were extra centre pieces we had provided - these were placed in different areas to compliment the theme.
Bridal party arrival - upon arrival there was a complimentary bottle of prosecco for the party in the bridal suite. The suite was beautiful and our bouquets were laid out so nicely for us. We asked for some more champagne flutes and straight away, within 2 mins there were some at our door.
En route to the ceremony I was worried about the song and when everyone had to walk in - why I was worried I do not know as Amy had listened to it numerous times and knew exactly when to send everyone in. Amy and Evan even sorted out my dress so it looked beautiful walking down the aisle.
Throughout the ceremony the team had tidied the bridal suite room and put chocolates and petals on the bed. When I went to show my husband the suite, I had warned him that it had been a bit of a mess - but no - Amy and the team had ensured it looked almost as if noone had been there!
Drinks reception - we went for photos on the beach and whilst this was happening there was canapes and prosecco - at previous weddings people had commented that they (as bride and groom) had not had the opportunity to try their canapes as they had been doing photos - but the team had thought of this and Tate brought us out our own little plate with 2 of each canapes each.
The change over was swift and the room looked fabulous for dinner thanks for Evan and her guidance - Amy had suggested having a smaller number of tables and more people on each otherwise the tables would look bare - again absolutely the right decision. We had some elderly guests and while the change over was happening they were given chairs to sit on which was no drama whatsoever for the staff.
The meal - everyone raved about the food - it was sublime - presented so tastefully and portions were generous. It was a really lovely touch that Tate went around and asked every single table, not just the top table, how their food was. This was great as I have never seen this at a wedding before.
Again, turnaround for the evening was flawless and the ballroom looked beautiful.
Other things that made our day extra special - everyone who was part of the wedding party received room upgrades free of charge which really made everyone feel special; we didnt have time to try our cake, but the team had realised this would be the case and on arrival to the bridal suite after the evening there was two slices of cake presented beautifully with some of the left over flowers, as well as our gifts and cards and the left over drinks from dinner service. Nothing went to waste as the bottles of wine that were not used at dinner were left on the bar for guests to enjoy in the evening too.
We cannot fault the service or staff at the Roslin at all.
A few special mentions -
Nicky behind the bar - you are a wonderful woman and made sure nothing was too much - you made drinks with love and were a real hit with the guests, everyone said how wonderful you were. Thank you for being great.
Tate - wow - you were so calm and collected - if we wanted 5 mins to ourselves that was not an issue - nothing was too much to ask. You ensured the day ran smoothly (we were always on time throughout the day) and you ensured that everyone was well looked after. Thank you - you are fantastic at your job.
Evan - You ensured the turn around of the room was done quickly but with class and flawlessly finished. Thank you.
Amy - what can we say - your team are an absolute credit to you, and it is because of you that we had a wedding that was more than we ever could have dreamed of. Your operations runs like a well-oiled machine but at the same time ensures the authenticity and personalism of every single wedding, to ensure it retains it individuality. Some weddings have felt like 'conveyer belts' but every single person spoke so highly of you, the team and the venue. Thank you endlessly for your love and dedication to what you do. It is very evident.
One small thing - oh... who are we kidding! The day was the most perfect experience. We will treasure The Roslin and our treatment as bride and groom forever. You are wonderful people, great value for money as a venue and you will always hold a special place in our heart. Thank you. Mr and Mrs Lee

Attention to detail was first class

We would like to say a big thank you to you and all the Roslin staff for making Ruth & Kelly's Wedding such a wonderful memorable day. Attention to detail was first class. DJ, flowers, the food, the waiting staff, in fact, the whole package couldn't have been better. Our guests were full of praise for this exceptional venue.

Our Day was just perfect from start to finish!

The Bay Room for our ceremony just made it extra special, it looked amazing - so personal and intimate. The Ballroom looked just stunning - several people said it was the nicest wedding they have ever been to! The food was amazing, especially the dessert! Thank you to the Events Director, Amy, for the brilliant, amazing, professional way you looked after us - you were a true pleasure to be around. The team were so organised, so calming, you explained everything that we needed to know to help us relax from start to finish.

We cannot stop talking about our perfect day

We booked our wedding at The Roslin for 15th July and what a day it was! Amy and Rosanna are so lovely and made our day absolutely perfect! Jacqui the manager even took the time out to try and calm my nerves. The food was delicious even though they had over 100 people to cater for in one go and the evening buffet was plentiful! We can't stop talking about our perfect day and there's not a single thing we would have changed and that's down to Rosanna and Amy and all the fantastic staff who are a credit to the hotel and made us feel so welcome from the time we arrived through to the time we checked out. Thank you so much for everything!

Everything we had hoped for and more!

We had a wedding at the Roslin in their smaller room out the 2 they provide which I must say, for our little venue was everything we had hoped for and more. The staff were fantastic, particularly their events organiser Amy who really worked around us and completely took away the stress of planning by just being amazing at her job which inevitably resulted in our perfect day flowing smooth and stress free....who can say that about a wedding!!! ? The place settings and decor were as per instruction and their venue suited guests of all ages whilst having the added bonus of the beach to photograph on. I would (and have already) recommended the Roslin for a smaller fitting venue as there prices are reasonable and their smaller room is absolutely stunning.... There's nothing else you could want and they gave me the setting of truly one of the most happiest days of our lives not to mention the honeymoon suite being literally to die for!!! So much so that we plan to go back and stay in that exact room for each anniversary date to bring back such a treasured memory. There was only 1 staff member who was managing front of house that I had a few guests slide me a comment about that maybe should have been back of house should we say...just a little abrubt for the occasion setting yet not by far enough to ruin anyone's experience and come away from the whole thing with nothing but praise and positive reviews. You were amazing Roslin and would recommend you everytime!!!! Thank you so much for everything that you organised for us with an extra special thank you to your event coordinators which were both an absolute credit to your organisation!!! Thank you again!x

Wowzza wedding day at the Roslin Beach

Our love story started with a simple Y oh Y email from a dating web site called Plenty of Fish, now 6 years later Amy and her team made our quirky fish themed dream become a reality, the new Mr & Mrs Yard really can not thank Amy and the Roslin enough.

From the time of booking through to the day itself on the 17/09/2016 nothing was too much trouble. Amy embraced our asks and went all out to ensure our day was everything we wanted it to be. From our live Fan Tail Goldfish in their bowls on the tables, our refined Fish and Chips (no newspaper in sight) to our cute, four legged ring bearer who trotted up the aisle to the amazement of all our guests. The day was simply perfect!

The Roslin is just right, lovely décor, friendly and helpful staff topped with lovely views across the sea. We were really spoilt as everything we asked for was accommodated, including a 5 piece Jazz Band to kick the evening off.

So all in all a fantastic day for us and our guests all helped along stress free, hassle free by Amy and her team, once again a really big THANK YOU.

We have already decided that each anniversary will be spent reminiscing over a meal back at the Roslin.....

The Most Wonderful Day we could have asked for....

Our wedding day on the 3rd September was wonderful times 1,000 and it was all made possible by the wonderful staff at The Roslin. The venue is so lovely, dressed to perfection and every single one of our guests commented on how lovely the setting us. The staff are amazing - Amy, the Event Manager just takes all the stress away from you before and on the day - I remembered walking down the aisle with not one single worry - knowing that it had all been taken care of.

The food was faultless - the canapés, the sit-down meal and the buffet - excellent - I was worried that there wouldn't be enough food but was I so wrong! No one person left without having a belly full of food and everything was top quality.

I can not thank the hotel enough for making our days so special - I wish we could do it all again.
We would like to thank everyone who was involved in making the day so memorable for us.

Please if you are thinking of a venue choose the Roslin Hotel - you will not be disappointed xx
