My husband and I are so delighted we chose Blair Castle as our wedding venue! This spectacular Scottish castle with it beautiful rooms and grounds makes it one of the most breathtaking venues and its looks are matched by excellent service and warm hospitality. From the moment we stepped into Blair Castle, turning up without an appointment while searching for a venue, we were greeted by welcoming staff who went out of their way to show us around despite it being a Sunday in November and no events staff working that particular day. We were shown into the ballroom and were immediately in love with the room, this along with a further chat with the wedding coordinator gave us the confidence to book Blair Castle for our special day. I am so very glad we did!
In the few months leading up to our wedding we were introduced to Blair Castle’s new wedding coordinator Jackie Stones. Jackie’s friendly and organised approach gave us the comfort that our wedding plans were in very capable hands. This proved true in the few days before our wedding and the special day itself. Jackie contacted and dealt with most of our suppliers from coordinating the florist, piper, cake, caterers and drinks suppliers to creating our order of service, menus, table plans and name settings. On the day itself Jackie was there from 10 am way before our wedding started; she greeted guests, took care of our suppliers, ensured everything when to plan and oversaw the entire day. She even stayed to 1 am when the last guest left! We found Jackie and the Blair Castle team to be professional, dedicated and warm, they truly couldn’t do enough to ensure we had the best experience.
Blair Castle use one catering company for all their events and although initially we were dubious about not having a choice I can’t recommend them highly enough. This was the best food we have ever experienced at any wedding, as was the service. The catering staff were extremely professional serving and clearing up dishes unobtrusively, pouring wine before glasses ran empty and were extremely attentive. There were ample staff and no one was left waiting for anything. Many of our guests have commented on the catering which adds to our conviction and delight that we chose the right venue.
I cannot thank the Jackie and the Blair Castle team enough for the most wonderful day, we will cherish our photographs and memories for years to come.
Sally & Jeff Hamm- June 2017
What a fantastic day we had on Saturday and in large part this was because of you and your team. Glen and Frankie had a wonderful wedding day and have gone on their honeymoon taking some great memories with them.
Before they left we agreed that I would drop you a line on my and their behalf to thank you very much for all that you did to ensure that this was a great success. On the run up to the day you have been pivotal to the event organisation, linking with the suppliers and making sure that timings and details were as we wanted. The support and advice you gave us has been invaluable.
On the day itself there always seemed to be someone on hand to help whenever we needed – mostly you personally. Everyone from Blair was calm and so accommodating, with a warm and welcoming attitude. The day seemed effortless for the bridal party and tremendously enjoyable for all of us. We have received nothing but glowing comments from our guests on the wedding organisation and venue.
We cannot thank you enough.
