We had the best day ever! We had an amazing time. I can't believe how well everything went.
Everybody said how amazing the food was and no one went hungry which I'm really pleased about!
Everybody I spoke to thought the venue was amazing I couldn't fault it really! Wish we could do it all over again! The room for dinner was beautifully done as well, the tables were nice set out!
Please pass on our thanks to everyone!! And thank you to you for being a great wedding planner you made site everything was exactly as we wished without putting us under pressure so we felt relaxed and stress free on the day!
We had the best day, everyone keeps saying they had a great time, best wedding ever. You were brilliant and thanks for everything you did for us. Thanks again for a brilliant day!
Mark and I just want to say we had a fantastic day on our wedding. Ghillie Dhu looked fantastic and it all came together much better than I could have ever imagined. The staff were great and everything went so smoothly. Most of all Mark and I would like to thank you. You captured everything we wanted and more. You put our at mind ease and coordinated everything amazingly.
We both had a perfect day. We couldn't fault anything to be honest. Thanks so much for all your help on the day. If we could afford it, we'd do it all again next week!
The day was perfect! You did everything I had asked and ran everything so smoothly. I didn't worry about a thing all day! Everyone says the food and decor was beautiful and in the week before you were always available for updates etc which was wonderful. I trusted you to do everything we wanted and you really did. Thank you so much!
We were really happy with how everything went on the day, the support and assistance you and all the staff at the Ghillie Dhu give us was fantastic. We would like to extend a special thank you to yourself for keeping us organised and nudging us for when you needed info from us. It was all very relaxed and the planning behind the scenes was meticulous. We really enjoyed our day and will definitely drop in anytime we are passing for a wee drink or bite to eat!
We just wanted to write a quick note to say a massive thank you for all your help and hard work in the run up to and on the day of the wedding. In particular, I really appreciated how you handled all the last minute changes to the seating plans so brilliantly. You really put my mind at rest and I am truly grateful! Absolutely everyone we spoke to raved about the venue and how great the food was. We absolutely loved the set up of the room and can't wait to see the final photos!
My partner and I cannot recommend the Ghillie Dhu enough as a wedding venue choice. Our day was a smashing success, all thanks to Kirsty, the co-ordinator, and her service team. After several meetings with Kirsty to organise the details of our big day, my partner and I trusted we could put the wedding entirely into her capable hands, so we could sit back and enjoy. Kirsty and her team at the Ghillie Dhu seamlessly moved the day from one stage to the next without us having to worry about a single thing. Kirsty and the staff were highly punctual, friendly, and professional. The food was delicious, the venue looked gorgeous, and our guests raved for weeks about how much fun they had. Our wedding day at the Ghillie Dhu was, in all sincerity, the best day of our lives, and we will never forget it. We are so grateful to Kirsty and the staff for taking such great care of us and our guests.
From the moment we stepped into the breath-taking auditorium space, we knew the Ghillie Dhu was the one for us!
Being a ‘Pinterest bride’, I had so many bespoke options I wanted to incorporate into our day, and from start to finish nothing was ever a trouble. From the hiring of the gold chairs to match the colour scheme, to the ‘Prosecco and Peroni’ reception, the bespoke food options to the ‘Mexican Nacho Bar’ in the evening. You offered us an amazing package as it was, but by going above and beyond, you helped make our day so personal to us.
Thank you a million times over to everyone at the Ghillie Dhu from the Chef for the incredible food (wow), the sound team for working with our String Quartet, Band and Sax Player and to the staff for the continuous impeccable service. In particular though Thank you to our fabulous co-ordinator Kayleigh - You were an absolute dream to work with and made it your mission to make sure the day was as magical as it was!!"
From the get-go, Kirsty was nothing other than Out of this World in every aspect of the role. Her communication, organisation and general enthusiasm for every detail kept our levels of confidence at the highest level - right from our first meeting right through until after the day had been and gone.
Kirsty’s passion for perfection and sheer professionalism kept us feeling great - small amendments required on the day which may have been seen as a big deal were completed discreetly and with such finesse that it would have gone completely unnoticed to anyone who was unaware. She is truly out of this world and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help make our day as beautiful as we both imagined. Thank you!!!
