Our frequently asked wedding questions are here to help

If you require more information then please get in touch with us

Q What time can my ceremony be at?
A We will only host one wedding ceremony per day, and we will work around you and whatever time suits you best. We would, however, recommend 2pm if you have less than 100-day guests and 1-1.30pm if you have more than 100-day guests.

Q What is your maximum number of people for dining/nighttime?
A We can accommodate up to 120 for dining and 150 for nighttime.

Q How many people can I have at a table?
A You can have anything between 6 and 12 at a table. We have different sizes of tables to accommodate different numbers, however, we find tables of 8-10 work best.

Q How much deposit is required to book my wedding?
A To secure your date we would ask for a £500 deposit. Thereafter an interim payment of £1500 would be required 9 months in advance. The balance would be due to being paid in full 4 weeks before the wedding ceremony.

Q Can I provisionally hold a date?
A Yes we can hold a date for 2 weeks for you without a deposit.

Q Can I bring in my own wine for tables?
A No, unfortunately, we do not offer a corkage option within the hotel, but we have excellent wines on offer at competitive prices. Please come and discuss any options with us.

Q Can I have alcohol as my favours?
A Yes, many people like to have alcohol spirit miniatures as favours, and you can have this. We don’t, however, allow the mini bottles of wine or prosecco.

Q Will someone dress my room for me on the day?
A Yes, of course, we love to dress our function suite and make it special for our wedding couples. We also know it’s one less thing for you to worry about. We’ll meet you on the day before and take all your setup requirements. You can rest easy knowing that the room will be set up beautifully, leaving you stress-free and able to relax and enjoy your big day.

Q Will there be another wedding taking place in the hotel on my day?
A Absolutely not! We know your day is special to you and your guests and we take great pride in offering an exclusive experience for our wedding couples. Only one wedding takes place in our hotel per day. Your day will be completely your own and the care and attention were given to you and your guests will not be shared with another couple.

Q What if my numbers change after I book?
A We know it can be difficult to confirm the numbers of people attending your big day but it helps to confirm estimated numbers when you book. We know numbers can change and you are allowed a drop of 10% subject to minimum numbers. These numbers can also increase up to a maximum capacity of 120.

Q Can I add things into my package after I book?
A Yes of course. We know that planning a wedding takes a lot of time and thought. You’ll be adding lots of ideas and gaining inspiration as you go along. Our friendly wedding coordinator is always on hand throughout your whole planning process to help you and to give you advice on any items you may wish to add for your big day, which might include an LED backdrop and top table skirt.

Q Do I need to ask my guests for a pre-order?
A No. Just like being at a restaurant or any other function, our excellent serving staff will attend each table and take your guests’ orders on the day.

Q If I were to take a pre-order would this bring my price down?
A No. In theory, this is a great idea, however, in practice, we find that people either forget what they have ordered or they change their minds on the day. Taking people’s food orders can also give you a lot more work when you’ve already got lots to think about and organise. We like to make everything as easy and stress-free as we can for you. Let our staff take the strain for you.

Q Do my room rates include breakfast for my guests?
A Yes, as part of the experience we offer, all our wedding room rates are inclusive of a full Scottish breakfast for your guests.
