Made Us Feel Very Well Taken Care Of
Venue Service

By Marge & David, on 19 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

We cannot thank Valts enough - he did an absolutely fantastic job planning the event and putting everything together for us. We are based in Australia, and so apart from a visit to Scotland in October and a couple of phone calls everything had to be done by email. Valts was extremely efficient and we never had to wait more than a couple of days for a detailed response to our queries. He was extremely professional throughout and made us feel very well taken care of. The venue was absolutely beautiful, and several of our guests said how much they enjoyed it too. It was a really good idea to have the Ceremony / Meal, Drinks Reception and Evening Reception in different rooms as it allowed our guests to circulate around and have a change of scene every couple of hours. The decoration in the Fellows Library and Playfair Hall was great - we did not have any flowers or anything on the tables, and we didn't miss having them at all because the rooms were so lovely anyway! The Wolfson Hall was a great venue for the evening dancing, particularly the ceilidh, as it was more spacious. We loved the food, and again we had several compliments from guests. All the serving staff were very friendly and attentive. We had the absolute best time and honestly cannot think of anything we would change.

Dear Valts, I have filled in the survey but both Amalia and I wanted to express our thanks in a separate email to you and the whole team. From the moment we agreed the venue and date, you and your team provided fabulous support, which was always positive and friendly with a sense that nothing was too much. The day was wonderful, with everything as we had hoped and planned and all delivered by smiling, positive, supportive and encouraging staff The day and indeed the planning could have been fraught with anxiety, but we were filled with absolute confidence during the 9 months of planning that the day would go as we had planned. Indeed it did. All the guests commented on the venue and the excellence of the delivery of the wedding plan. Our favourite and indeed the best word used to describe the day by many guests was 'exquisite'. We agree, it was! Thank you an unforgettable day. Carl and Amalia

Huge thank you for a fantastic day
Venue Service

By Carole mother of the bride, on 20 Jun 2016

Just a huge thank you for a fantastic day on Saturday. Everyone had such a lovely day and your staff were all so friendly. Several guests commented on the fantastic service at the wedding breakfast and the lady in charge was lovely. Special mention must also go to the lovely caretaker? gentleman in the College- the one who wears the blue gloves- he was so helpful, friendly and obliging way beyond his job remit and was lovely to the wheelchair users and their families and the young lad, Ewan, with short dark hair- he was manning the bar on Friday, serving at breakfast on Saturday then served the wedding breakfast-was really cheerful and friendly.

The wedding went beautifully
Venue Service

By Annabelle and William Martinez, on 17 Jun 2016

The wedding went beautifully and this was in no small part thanks to the SH team. Neil was fantastic on the night, really professional with nothing too much trouble. We loved the professional dinner service with superb orchestration! Kirsty was also great earlier in the day. She was so calm and efficient. Also a big thank you to Leonie on the Friday who was very attentive even though I'm sure she had a busy schedule. And of course, thank you to you, Bethany, for organising the wedding so thoroughly, being so available for me in the run-up, and all in all being so professional throughout.

Words cannot express our feelings of the perfectness of the whole RCS ceremony. It far surpassed our visualisation of the day and that image was of high expectation.
