Guthrie Castle
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Was a guest at our friends wedding & was asked to stay over the night of the wedding. The setting for the wedding was fantastic, very relaxed & personal to our friends. The walled garden was perfect for the kids 2 play safely without parents worrying where they were. The only piece of advice would be to the ladies with heels on the grass, remember your heel stoppers! We were staying in the castle the night of the wedding. Our room was great & the bed very comfy. All in all a very comfortable stay in a beautiful setting 2 celebrate a very special day.

We have nothing but high praise for Guthrie Castle! My husband and I got married in the walled garden in the grounds of Guthrie and would recommend it as a wedding venue. We dealt with both Fiona and Maeghan during the planning of our wedding. I found them both to be extremely helpful and professional. Any queries we had were always answered promptly. They will definitely help you plan a wedding that is tailored just to your needs. My husband played the 9 hole golf course the morning of the wedding and throughly enjoyed it. The wedding went very smoothly and the waiting staff were very attentive. All the staff put in a long day for the wedding but the quality of service never faltered. The caterers used by Guthrie prepared a fab meal for all. We also opted to hire the accommodation for the night of the wedding and would recommend doing this as it allowed us to spend some extra time with friends and family the morning after the wedding. Overall, we feel we had the perfect day. It all felt so laid back. My only complaint is that it's over now and we'd happily do it all again tomorrow if we could!

As soon as we came to see guthrie castle we fell in love not only with the castle but the gardens also. It was the perfect wedding venue for us as we could have our closest friends and family together for a whole weekend to celebrate our wedding. We arrived on the Friday for a fantastic afternoon tea while the boys went to play golf. We then had some chill out time in our rooms followed by our wedding rehearsal then the best BBQ ever! We had some drinks then off to bed for the big day, breakfast was fab as we were split into boys and girls this prevented us seeing each other the morning of the wedding. We had a lovely bottle of champagne while we got ready for the wedding. Thankfully it was a lovely day and we were able to get married in the walled garden.
Guthrie have the most attentive staff (who we are sure don't actually go home or sleep). They couldn't be more helpful they make sure you have the most memorable time before during and after your wedding. Any questions I had were answered promptly and any calls were dealt with very professionally. You can tell that Fiona and maeghan actually care about what you want on the day they will help with anything. I have nothing but good things to say about guthrie castle and it really needs to be seen to truly be appreciated. Wish I could do it all over again.
Thanks so much to all staff at guthrie.

Where do you start? From start to finish Maeghan & Fiona had this Wedding nailed, very proffesional and extremely freindly and attentitive to all our needs. Having attended a wedding here previously it was the obvious choice for me and noreen-marie, we did check out other venues but our hearts were set on Guthrie Castle from the word go. The weather on the day was fantastic it must have been the hottest day in May so managed to get the full use of the Gardens for the service and afternoon drinks on the lawn. The pavillion was set out perfectly, the food was excellent couldnt have asked for more. The guests that attended have not stopped going on about the excellent day they had.

Wish I could do it all over again.

Thanks again for a spectacular day ! Liam & Noreen-Marie Geddes

We fell in love with Guthrie Castle when we came here for one of our first dates. We never in our wildest dreams imagined 3 years later we would be getting married in such a magical place. Guthrie Castle was the first venue we looked at and nothing else compared to how it made us feel, we knew it was the only choice from the second we walked in. We chose Guthrie Castle because of the location and scenery, not only was it close to where we lived but we felt that it was an ideal venue for all our nearest and dearest to get to, but set away enough to give that rural and beautiful setting.

The two girls Meagan and Fiona on the day were simply brilliant, they couldn't do enough to make sure the day went as planned. We had a couple of times where things had to be changed at the last minute and with ease they took control and managed to make it seamless and always looked in control of every situation. We also had a moment when our time was running away from us later in the day and we ran behind schedule but they brilliantly kept everyone informed and managed to keep the day the most special in both our life's. We can't thank them enough for the whole leading up to the wedding, the special day its self and after the wedding where we are still in contact and have become friends.

We wanted a cosy intimate wedding with everything we needed in the castle, and that's exactly what we got! The grand rooms and character of the place including the roaring open fire set the scene we had imagined for our big day. The staff were friendly and helpful, ensuring everything ran smoothly and anything we wanted was taken care of without any fuss. All of our close family stayed overnight in the castle and even our beloved dog had her own cottage so she could be with us all day and night. The stunning castle grounds add to the magic of Guthrie Castle. Maeghan and Fiona were exceptional, even from our first visit nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for helping making our day perfect! Jonny & Emily Hart xx
