Some lovely reviews from recent weddings at Kinkell Byre

Kirsty Jane, July 2019

Where to start! Stewart and I cannot thank Sam, Sandy and Stephen enough for all their hard work and attention to detail at our wedding on Sunday. We had the most perfect day and I was blown away by how beautiful the venue looked when I arrived. All the staff were amazing and we were so relaxed all day. I don’t know how you manage to turn the barn around so quickly but you guys do it and with no fuss! So many of our guests commented on how beautiful Kinkell was and the incredible views and gardens. Thanks again for everything that you did for us.

Luke and I knew this was our dream venue from the minute we visited it! Kinkell Byre is absolutely stunning and definitely offers the WOW factor. No two weddings are the same as with it being a blank canvas you can personalise it in anyway you want!

We were a little concerned at the magnitude of organising a DIY wedding as such but would recommend every supplier we used. The professionalism of our suppliers allowed me to be a very calm bride and we loved every minute of our setup and day and would do it all again in a heartbeat!!!!! đź’—. Sam and team at Kinkell are absolutely fantastic!!


David Brown, January 2019

We had our wedding at Kinkell Byre in October 2018 and couldn’t have wished for a more beautiful venue.

Sam helped us throughout the planning process and help coordinate the perfect day. Together with Stevie (i-light) our day ran smoothly without a single hiccup, allowing us to enjoy the day and completely relax.

Thank you once again for all your help, we couldn’t recommend Kinkell higher.


Nicole Martha, October 2018

“We had the most incredible wedding here. The staff are all amazing and the venue gives you the chance to make your wedding unique and special to you. We couldn’t have loved it more. We feared it would be cold and it definitely was not so to anyone considering this venue don’t worry about heat. It is a faultless venue!”


Kirsty Kaulfuss, August 2018

“Amazing venue and the staff are fantastic!! I am a wedding supplier and they ensured that we were hydrated and looked after and the master of ceremony let us know the couples schedule and was so helpful and thoughtful. Scenic wise it’s unbelievable and just a fantastic unbelievable venue!”


Amy Gregory, July 2018

“My husband and I got married at Kinkell Byre last Saturday and it was the venue of our dreams. An absolutely stunning venue that allows you to design and personalise to suit you as a couple but with enough of its own beauty and charm that doesn’t cause you a power of work or effort.

Sandy and Sam at Kinkell, along with Stevie at iLight were absolutely excellent from day one, so helpful and attentive, we never waited longer than a few hours to hear back from either of them with or questions. The day prior to our wedding Sam was an absolute superstar, helping where she could and assuring us she would take care of all the final touches for the wedding on the morning of which, she did brilliantly.

Our guests have commented consistently on the magic and unique beauty of this venue – a huge recommendation from The Gregory’s for anyone considering Kinkell Byre for their event.”


Claire Bechelli, May 2018

“We hired Kinkell Byre for our wedding on Saturday and it really was the best day of our lives! What a venue.. so unique and I love how every wedding is different and completely personal. Sam and Sandy were fab throughout, great communication and always there to answer any questions. Would highly recommend this venue, it was magical and our guests loved it. Thanks guys!!”

Mary Jane MacGillivray, March 2018

“The first time my fiancè (now husband) and I saw this place we fell immediately in love with this place. You don’t need to put a lot of decorations in it as the place looks stunning on it’s own. You just need to put a little lighting on it and that’s it! The owner and staff were also very helpful and kind to us. They make sure that everything is set and tries to help us in every single way to make our wedding day stress free as possible!”

Stephanie Oakden, February 2018

“Thank you to Sandy & Sam for all their help in the lead up to our wedding. You couldn’t get a more helpful person than Sam & Sandy is always on hand to help with anything. Kinkell Byre is the perfect venue to put your own stamp on & you can create the most magical wedding. We were married in February and it was lovely and warm in the venue. Highly recommend. Thank you!!!”


Leanne Marshall-Wood, January 2018

“We got married at Kinkell in October 2017, and we had the best day ever! The byre was the first venue we went to see, and also the last – we both fell in love with it immediately. Sam and Sandy could not have been more helpful, totally happy for us to come up for multiple visits, answered any questions i had and were fantastic on the day. Steve from i-light is also exceptional, I was a bit worried about how things would run on the day (being a total control freak!) but he took everything in hand, and it went so smoothly. I honestly wouldn’t have wanted to get married anywhere else.”


Helen Williams, November 2018

“We held our daughters wedding on 18th November at Kinkell Byre and had the most amazing day. It’s a lovely venue that you can really put your own stamp on. Stevie and the whole gang are such a support and really help run the day. We had so many lovely comments on our beautiful venue and wouldn’t change a thing about the day.”


Jacqui Nisbet, September 2017

“A gorgeous open space where you can add your own little touches to make your wedding individual…”


Bob Dunsire, September 2017

“If you’ve never been, it’s a venue to enjoy and share memories”


Jennie Hewitt, September 2017

“This weekend I got to marry my best friend and party with everyone of my friends and family! What an amazing day! Many thank yous to do – but the day would not have been the same without kasia from Lazy Sunday catering, our brilliant wedding band Corra, last minute step in from Suzanne Li photography and of course our venue Kinkell byre!! ”


Lesley Cunningham, August 2017

“My daughter and son in law got married at KB on Saturday and what a fabulous venue it is. The beauty of this venue is that it is a blank canvas and you can make it into whatever you want ”


Dango72 on Tripadvisor, August 2017

“As this was my first visit to this venue I was unsure what to expect. What an amazing venue for a wedding. Not only was the view spectacular on such a lovely day, the venue itself with the large well appointed bar, large function space and breakout areas surpassed expectations.”


Ross Wright, June 2017

“I’m a celebrant from Humanist Society Scotland, I’ve conducted weddings all over the country and this venue is one of the most impressive I’ve ever been to. Not only does it look amazing, the staff were fantastic…..all working to one aim….helping the couple to have the wedding they wanted. A delight to work there and hope I get asked to conduct a wedding there again ”


Linda Baggaley, June 2017

“What an amazing place and you don’t realise how big it actually is till you go to all the separate areas. Lovely places to get some fantastic photos in the garden and woodland area but the venue itself had separate areas for the ceremony, pre reception drinks and canapes and then the wedding breakfast. Plenty of staff serving and well done to everyone, such a brilliant day with family and friends and the weather just topped everything on the day.”


Calum Robertson, June 2017

“We were married at Kinkell Byre in March this year. It was only the second venue we saw but immediately called off the search.

Sandy and Sam were a delight to deal with in the run-up, and everything is run very smoothly – I believe they’ve now done over 400 weddings and that experience is there to see.

Stevie from i-Light, in addition to the wonderful lighting he provides, is a real asset on the day and keeps things running smoothly, he liaises with the other providers and allows you to get on with your day with the confidence that everything is running the way it should.

I don’t need to talk about how stunning the venue is because you can all see the pictures. What is wonderful is the way that you are free to decorate almost entirely as you wish, to make your day as personal as possible, which is not an option with a lot of venues.

The bar company, Event Bars St Andrews, had excellent staff who provided a very good range of beers and spirits.

St Andrews is less than five minutes in the car so accommodation is no problem.”


Morag Cantwell, May 2017

“What a fab venue. Was at a wedding there yesterday and was blown away. It doesn’t look much from the outside but inside WOW. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT Mx”


Em Carberry, April 2017

“Kinkell Byre was the first and last venue we looked at. We wanted somewhere that we could really get creative with and dress to our taste. The barn is made up of a few areas and the space has a great flow to it so we knew it would work well for the humanist ceremony and the reception. Not to mention the perfect fife coast was right on our doorstep.

All the staff were so helpful and we couldn’t have asked for a better day! <3 thank you kinkell team!”


Liz Francis, April 2017

“We travelled from Australia for our son’s wedding to Liza Ferrari on 30 May, and absolutely love your venue. It was a great layout, with a lovely area where the wedding service was performed, and there was plenty of plenty of dining and dancing space. Our Australian guests were also impressed with the venue.
A wonderful time was had by all and we were also nice and warm.”


Steve McCluskey, April 2017

“Performed at a wedding here just last night. The venue is absolutely stunning! Can’t say enough good things about it. Would play here every week!!”


Matt Fothergill, March 2017

“We got married here on the 9/07/16 last year. We had a fantastic time! The best thing about the venue apart from the views and the privacy was the flexibility of the venue about bringing in your own suppliers and making the whole place your own. We hadn’t had that option at other venues we looked at. We loved Sandy immediately and on the day Emma was wonderful. They worked very hard to help us realise our dream for the day and worked seamlessly with our planner Roni and we are so grateful! Amazing job!”


Roy Cowieson, January 2017

“It is an amazing place, in an amazing setting and for the event I attended, everything that was part of the event was added to greatly by the decor, and the atmosphere, as well as the flavour of being in a building that offered something completely different.”


Ellis Munro Bell, September 2016

“We got married here on the 6th August 2016, and seriously cannot recommend this venue enough! Absolutely amazing setting and so great as it is a blank canvas and can have it any way you want! This was perfect for us as we wanted something different and all our guests were blown away with how great it was. With the recommended supplier list it also makes it easy to organise and find suppliers that suit you. We truly had the most perfect day and it was partly down to this fantastic venue. So glad we found Kinkell Byre.

Thanks to sandy and everyone else involved.

Mr & Mrs Bell”


Sarah Lockhart, September 2016

“The perfect venue for someone who wants a completely blank canvas and a personalised day. Thanks to this venue I had my Dream Wedding!! Everything was just perfect! I highly recommend. Plenty space, beautiful setting and beautiful garden!”


Elaine Anderson, August 2016

“I’ve sang at so many venues over the years. But this place has to be my favourite. Just stunning”


Katie Pavey, June 2016

“We had our wedding at Kinkell on 9 July 2016. Our experience was amazing from beginning to end. We first met Sandy three years ago and from the minute we saw the Byre we knew we wanted to get married there – but Sandy’s helpful attitude was what definitely sealed the deal for us. We loved that it is essentially a blank canvas but with a great list of recommended suppliers and very knowledgable staff if you find that thought daunting – don’t worry too much as the amazing staff are there to help every step of the way. Any question we had was answered quickly and when we arrived to set up on the Friday Sam was there to help with any questions and to help set up the venue and on the day she was there to help make sure everything ran smoothly – including at the end of the night tidying everything away ready for collection the next morning. I honestly could not recommend the Byre more – all of our guests commented on how beautiful it was. Ours was a relatively small wedding but I know they cater larger weddings too. I’ll end on this – if you are looking for a relaxed, barn style wedding look no further than Kinkell.”


Karen Kerr, October 2015

“Lovely venue for a wedding. .staff lovely and polite x”


Charlotte and David, May 2015

“We wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help and assistance that you gave us in the booking and planning for our wedding at Kinkell. You really helped us with a lot of the decisions we had to make and the suggestions for the bar and lighting saved us so much time and hassle and you were the absolute professional and made us feel at ease (even when I bombarded you with emails daily). Kinkell is an absolutely enchanting place and we feel so lucky that we threw the most amazing day (and party) of our lives there.”

“Thanks again so SO much for everything”
