When you are driven up the long tree lined drive with your Daughter to extremely impressive large white painted castle, you then enter the stunning entrance with armaments all around, the staff giving you a warm welcome taking care of coats and bags with smiling faces and caring about everyone, the walk down the hall to the main hall where you are giving your daughter away, your heart is beating just a bit faster than normal calmed down slightly by the calming organisational skills of staff at the castle. The transition from the excellent wedding ceremony in the Victorian Ballroom to the Banvie Hall for drinks and canapés and seamless return to the Victorian Ballroom for the wedding dinner served with excellent pizazz and skill, quality of the food being given an excellent rating by all guests. Again the transition from dinner arrangement of the room to evenings entertainment arrangement was efficient and unobtrusive. The entire day was memorable and without flaws. The location, grounds and Castle itself are stunning, and provides the best backdrop for amazing wedding photos, both formal and informal, no matter if it’s brilliant sunshine or a misty rainy day, it’s very atmospheric and has evoked special memories of the day. Where we stayed on the estate Kindrochet Lodge was also very special for everyone getting together before and after the wedding, again in a beautiful location, which all added to the occasion.

My Wife Jo and I chose to look at Blair Castle as our wedding venue due to it’s incredible setting in the Southern Highlands and the fact that it is the most beautiful building, steeped in history and quintessentially Scottish!
From the outset Jackie and her team were instrumental in ensuring that the planning for our big day was never a chore. From the recommendations for Florists and Photographers to the assistance with the catering and finding guest accommodation, both locally and on the castle grounds – nothing was ever too much trouble.
The wedding day itself was absolutely perfect from start to finish and all our guests felt the same!
The red carpet was rolled out and our guests were piped inside as we awaited the arrival of the Horse and Carriage and the Bride to be.
The Ballroom is breathtaking – laid out for the service, wedding breakfast and evening reception exceptionally each time. The setting could not have been more Romantic! A special thank you to Emma from Coach House flowers and the staff at Prestige Scotland for how they worked alongside the team at the Castle to make us and our guests feel so special.
Jackie and the team did a wonderful job and if there ever were any problems at all, they were resolved with Jo and I being blissfully unaware of them. It all seemed flawless, testament to the work the staff did to make it just so for us!
Thank you also to Jackie for her brilliant work on the stationery, everything was lovely – the order of service, table names, all just perfect!
Each and everyone of our guests had an incredible day – we literally would not have changed a thing.
Myself and Jo are two very happy newlyweds!
We cannot thank you enough!

On behalf of the Maserati Club UK, I want to say a big thank you to you and your colleagues for making our visit on Sunday such a success. Despite the weather, everyone enjoyed themselves. The lunch was excellent and although some of our number drove in the wrong way (despite our instructions), there were no difficulties in sorting them out. 120 Maseratis from all over Europe converged on the castle!

Blair castle has to be about the only place worth considering, if you want to have a really brilliant day with family and friends.
Jackie and the team at the castle are exceptional. They have built relationships with fantastic partner vendors to provide a considered and classy offering. The food, flowers, service and organisation were far beyond what we had hoped for, to the point that the castle became the icing on the cake rather than the main course.

Words fail me – what a great party!
We still have one guest here (leaves tomorrow) and the house is sadly quiet. We took our Bulgarian and Serbian friends to Edinburgh yesterday for dinner in The Secret Garden at the Witchery-by-the-Castle and drove home later. I am glad there are no more parties to arrange for a while. The Castle and Ballroom are all over Serbian social media as one of our friends has a very popular TV show in that part of the world and was getting 10000+ likes on her posts throughout the evening.
You are AMAZING for making it such a wonderful event!
Best wishes to you and yours…

We are now just back from our gorgeous honeymoon, a road trip to see the Autumn Fall Colours around New England – it was absolutely breath taking…
Our wedding day was amazing and we are still on a complete high. Everything ran so beautifully and professionally, thank you so much to you and your team.
We picked up all our bits and pieces the next day and it was all neat and ready for us. Hope you enjoyed some cakes, we left you a box to share.
We very much hope to visit the Castle again sometime during the next year to have a really good look around, without any folders!!! So, may see you again at some point. ☺
Thanks again, just fab
