You were so friendly and made us feel so relaxed from our first meeting to our wedding day we felt we were dealing with a friend! We could not have asked for more! Today we met a couple who were being shown around who were considering the venue for their wedding. We recommended you so highly to them and could not stress enough how amazing our day was thanks to you guys. Massive thank you again!

Jeanette was lovely, Steven worked his socks off , Tony is a credit to the bar, and the kitchen done fantastic. A lovely venue with lovely people. Thanks again

Mr & Mrs Falla

We had the most amazing wedding here and cat thank the staff enough for making it a day of our dreams. We were here for 4 days in total and had 110 guest staying over at the hotel for our wedding day. At every opportunity the hotel went out of their way to make the whole weekend amazing, from catering for a private dinner for 40 people on Friday, to going into town to get ice lollies for the children on our wedding day… everything was perfect. Thank you lovely staff at Barony Castle! We would recommend to any bride.

Teresa Cullen

We wanted to say a huge Thank You to you and your team. We had an amazing day at Barony on 26th June, that went off without a hitch, despite the rainy Scottish weather! I am so grateful to you for understanding our vision and desire to have our ceremony down at the altar. It truly was magical and I couldn’t have imagined getting married anywhere else. You worked tirelessly all day and your customer service, organisation and attention to detail in the lead up and on the day were excellent. You really helped it all come together. Our day was truly special and Barony Castle as a setting made it magical.

Mr & Mrs Alexander

We really had an amazing day and you were all so helpful and instrumental in making that happen. We want to sincerely thank you all for your efforts. I know it can’t be easy changing the ceremony around late in the day and it’s very much appreciated. It made it the perfect day we had been hoping for – the avenue of trees was the reason we were so keen to get married at Barony castle so it was incredible to get married down there. Jeanette was wonderful and calm throughout – a fantastic presence to have around. The staff were all lovely and made sure to ask Stephen’s parents later in the evening if everything was going as they’d hoped which was great, and Jeanette checked in with me on a few occasions through the day to make sure everything was fine. All of our friends and family are still talking about how brilliant it was. ‘Magical’, ‘Fairy-tale’ and ‘stunning’ are words we never get tired of hearing! Your efforts in working with us on decor were especially appreciated and it made the day feel very personal to us and our guests. The attention to dietary requirements was hugely appreciated and we want to thank the chef and kitchen staff for the delicious food! ‘Best buffet ever at a wedding’ was said, a lot! The meal was perfect and everyone enjoyed their food immensely. (poor me couldn’t eat or drink much at all, but I really enjoyed what I did eat!)

Mr & Mrs Farrell
