Q What time can my ceremony be at?
A What time can my ceremony be at?A We only ever do one wedding per day so we
 will totally work around you for this, we would
 however recommend 2pm March – October and
 1pm/1.30pm November- February, pictures are a
 big part of your day and this allows enough time
 for the photographer to get them whilst it’s still
 light outside.


Q What is your maximum number of people
 for dining/night time?
We can accommodate up to 200 for dining
 and 250 for night time.


Q How many people can I have at a table?
A You can have anything between 8 and 12 at a
 table however we find 8-10 works best and
 gives your guests space at the tables.


Q How much deposit is required to book my
 wedding?
£500 is required to secure your date, we then
 need an interim payment of £1500 9 months
 in advance and the balance paid in full 4 weeks
 before.


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?
No, unfortunately we do not offer a corkage
 option within the hotel. Our wedding coordinator
 works closely with our bar team so if there is
 anything we can do to make your day extra
 special, just let us know.


Q Can I have alcohol as my favours?
A Yes you may have alcohol spirit miniatures,
 however we do not allow the mini bottles of
 wine or prosecco.


Q Will someone dress my room for me on the day?
A Of course, our wedding team will meet with you
 the day before to take all of your setup requirements
 from you, we will then dress your room leaving you
 stress free to relax and enjoy your big day!


Q My ceremony is at 2pm and check in is 3pm, how will this work for my guests?
A We advise guests to arrive at the hotel dressed for the ceremony as if they were arriving at a church, if their room is ready then of course we will check them in, if it is not then we can hold onto bags for your guests and put them into the rooms once they are ready.


Q Are children allowed to stay until the end of my wedding at night time?
A Yes, we apply for a children’s license for every function that takes place in the hotel, as it is a private function there is no need for children to leave early. Many of them out do the adults when it comes to partying!


Q Am I allowed to bring in external caterers to do the food for my event?
A No, unfortunately we do not allow external caterers to supply any of the food. Our team of chef’s will happily work with you to create any dishes that you would love to have for your event. Any special dietary requirements can also be catered for.


Q What size is your dancefloor?
A Our dancefloor is 21’ x 33’. Larger than most, it is perfect for everyone to dance the night away.

Q Will there be another wedding taking place in the hotel on my day?
A Absolutely not! We pride ourselves in the fact that we only have 1 wedding taking place in the hotel per day so your day is completely your own and the attention given to your guests will not be shared with another couple.



Q What if my numbers change after I book?
A When you book, you confirm on your estimated numbers of which you are allowed a drop of 10%, subject to minimum numbers. These numbers can increase up to our maximum capacity of 180. Our wedding coordinator will be able to advise on minimum numbers and any other info you need. 



Q Can I add things into my package after I book?
A Of course. We know that planning a wedding takes a lot of time and thought. You’ll be getting lots of ideas and gaining inspiration as you go along. Our wedding co-ordinator will be on hand throughout your planning process to advise you and order you any other items you wish to include for your day e.g. LED dancefloor/backdrop etc.



Q Do I need to ask my guests for a pre-order?
A No, our superb staff will go around your tables and take the order from all of your guests on the day. Planning your big day can be quite stressful, let us take one thing off your mind!



Q If I were to take a pre-order would this bring my price down?
A No, unfortunately in theory this is a great idea however in practice we tend to find that people either forget what they have ordered or they change their minds on the day therefore it saves you the hassle and we will take the order for your guests in the day.



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


Q Is there a payment plan option available?
A Yes we have a variety of options to suit everyone, you can pay towards your wedding at any time by coming into the hotel or giving us a call and paying over the phone, alternatively we also offer BACS transfer.


Q Can you help with florist, cake, cars etc?
A Of course, our wedding co-ordinator has a list of recommended suppliers for all of these things that you might need for your day. They will always be a call or email away should you need any advice.


Q What size are the candelabras?
A They are 80cm in height, gold 5 arm candelabras and come complete with candles to dress your tables elegantly. The perfect finishing touch to our Grand Ballroom.


Q Can I change my package after I confirm my date?
A You can upgrade your package at any time but you cannot downgrade. If you decide to downgrade your package you must forfeit your deposit and rebook onto another package. Have a chat with our wedding coordinator before you book and make sure you are confident the package you are going for is the best for you.
