We don’t charge corkage
We don’t believe in charging you extra for wines and fizz you’ve already bought, so you don’t need to worry about any extra corkage charges coming from us. Our preferred bar supplier, Event Bars St Andrews, offers a comprehensive choice of wine and fizz for your convenience.
Choose your own suppliers
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your dream caterer to get your dream venue – so we don’t tell you who to use. The only people that we ask you to use are our lighting and bar suppliers, as they have bespoke equipment tailored to our venue. If you are looking for ideas, we have a list of recommended suppliers who we have worked with often and regard as part of the team. If you are still looking for ideas, we are happy to offer our advice.
We are very lucky in Scotland where getting married does not just mean a traditional church ceremony or registrar office. Scotland is one of the only places in the world that allows you to get married anywhere, your way, all that you need is a registered body and a marriage schedule. Here you can find out how this works.
