What can I say? Katy and Matt's wedding was everything they had hoped for and more and we cannot thank you enough for your assistance and guidance through the whole planning process - your efficiency is quite simply second to none!
Everything went completely to plan and the pavilion looked absolutely beautiful on the day thanks to Luci Anderson and her team and the meal was superb thanks to Ian and his team. Kevin was a fabulous MC - if anyone is cut out for that job it is him - not an easy job but for him it was effortless and our guests enthused over his charm. Ruaridh was fabulous - welcoming, directing guests on arrival and at the end of the evening overseeing the taxis home for the bridal party and to him we extend a huge thanks also.
Your venue is outstanding and we were blessed with a sunny dry day (if a little cool!) and so what more could we ask for? Matt's family who were over from Northern Ireland surely saw Loch Lomond at its very best and that was our one great wish - they were hugely enthusiastic about the whole weekend celebration.
The tiny people at the wedding so enjoyed seeing the horses and chickens and I hope the livestock weren't terrified with all the attention though I suspect they are well used to it!!
I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and many thanks once again for all your help.
David and I would have no hesitation in recommending your venue to friends and we wish you huge success for the future.
With very best wishes,
Dear Ruairidh, Laura, Cameron, Erin, Kevin and Ian,
Apologies that this comes a week late, but we have been celebrating and partying in Glasgow and Islay... In fact some of our guests rearranged their flights to stay with us longer - sign of a good party! We finally got back to Singapore last night and are about to head off on Honeymoon in a few hours time.
We had a terrific time. Thank-you. In fact, many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been to - even better than their own (heard that from four married couples!).
The setting and service was exemplary. Thank-you! I think my parents are going to send you a note of thanks as well. They were really over the moon.
Best wishes, and hope to catch up with you again at some point next year for a dram or two.
Caroline and John
Hi Laura & Ruiaridh,
Just wanted to message you again to say thanks for everything two weeks ago (seems so long ago now!!!)
Still got 2 nights left of our honeymoon so will make the most of that and spent and absolute fortune in NY shopping but suppose it's only your honeymoon once.
Every single person went out their way to comment on how amazing the venue was as well and we are really looking forward to seeing the official pics when we get back, all the unofficial ones on Facebook look brilliant anyway.
It's easy to say this but I genuinely don't feel the weather had any negative impact on the day at all just shows how versatile your venue is and how flexible and organised you guys are.
Wouldn't have wanted our wedding anywhere else.
Mr and Mrs McCorkindale
Just a note to thank you so much for making Laura & Stuart's wedding day so special. We can't thank you enough. Your attention to detail certainly reassured Laura that everything would be perfect - and it was.
Our guests were completely overwhelmed with your venue and the entire setting. The fabulous weather was an added bonus. A great talking point after the ceremony was the fact everyone thought the chicken was going to take part. They loved it!
Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved. Kevin was just great making sure everything ran like clockwork and all the staff were so helpful and cheerful.
Stuart was like a walking advert for you chatting with the families that were looking round the day before when we were setting things up. He couldn't praise you and venue highly enough. He told them that once he and Laura had seen the venue they didn't even consider looking anywhere else. We were sure you had him on some sort of commission LOL. But everything he said was true - you have a truly fabulous venue with spectacular views.
Thanks again so much to you and Rory for helping us give Laura & Stuart the wedding of their dreams. It was a very proud day for us.
With very best wishes and kindest regards to you both.

Dear Laura and Ruairidh,
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding at Boturich so special. You were so attentive and we really felt our special day was in the best of hands!
We had an absolutely fantastic day at your stunning venue and are really looking forward to the photos.
Mr and Mrs Millar x
Hi Laura thanks again to you and all your staff for having and making us feel welcome last night. Still the best wedding venue in the country by absolute miles.

Dear Laura and Ruairidh
Now that things have calmed down a little - honeymooners safely dispatched to New Zealand; relatives safely returned to Spain and the US - i have a moment to reflect on the wonderful day we had on Saturday. This was due in no small measure to your calm, guiding presence and immense tolerance. No issue was too trivial for you to address seriously; no request was too troublesome and your patience was infinite.
We don’t know how to thank you adequately for the support and help that you were to us. We had a truly memorable day. Thank you for all that you did to contribute to it. Warm regards Anne and Stephen
Words cannot adequately express our gratitude to Laura, Rory and Cameron for making our big day simply amazing. Nothing was too much trouble! We visited the gorgeous Boturich numerous times over the two years waiting for our wedding day to arrive and were always greeted by the lovely Laura who was more than happy to help and make us feel welcome. She recommended Lisa at Dream Day flowers and we were blown away with her amazing work. Big thanks also to Ian for keeping a well stocked bar and catering to our guests. You guys made our wedding the best day ever. Our guests were overwhelmed with the stunning views and have been raving about the beautiful venue non-stop. Love and best wishes to you all,
Mr and Mrs Gillies and Scarlett. xx
Back home finally after an amazing 3 weeks away and starting to adjust to reality once again. We wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Boturich but especially to Laura, Rory and Cameron for making our day so special. How lucky we were in the end with the weather and being able to have the ceremony outside really did make it so wonderful. No one could believe the views and people kept telling us it was the most amazing setting they had ever been to, which I fully agree with. Thank you guys so much for all your help in making it the best day ever xxx
Katie & Michael
Hi Laura and Rory
Thank you so much for ensuring my baby sisters wedding was a day to remember. Where someone gets married plays such an important part of their overall day, but you guys topped that remit in a spectacular fashion. The amount of functions that you must complete I have no idea how you're able to do it with the flair, grace and energy that you both oozed. Your home and surroundings are breathtaking...... I salute you.
My sister couldn't be happier with her day, friends, family and most importantly her wonderful husband. Thank you for being the cherry on top.
Much love for your continued successful future.
Dear Laura, Rory and Cameron
We can't thank you enough for everything you did to make Dave and Jenny's wedding day so perfect! We've had phone calls, texts and emails galore raving about the day. As I said to you, the team at Boturich have that very special knack of making each wedding seem like the only one you're organising. Very many thanks again!
Janet and Stuart
Just back from honeymoon! We had the most amazing day on the 29th July. Thank you all for making our day sooo special!! The service was second to none, the day ran very smoothly and I wouldn't have changed a thing. The best day of my life at one of the most beautiful places in the world! XX
Lynsey & John
I just want to say en enormous thank you for all you did to make Lynsey and John's wedding so perfect. You have no idea how many guests have written or contacted me to say how much they had enjoyed the day. You can see from the photographs every one beaming, really shining, smiling and laughing was amazing, how lucky we were to have such a glorious day to enjoy the beauty around us. Unexpected touches such as the rugs and beanbags were superb, encouraging everyone to relax and enjoy, shoes were kicked off and the children had a ball. I loved the informality, the caterers and musicians were also fantastic. The whole day just flowed. I don't think it could have been more perfect !!!!
Thank you Laura, my warmest wishes for your own forthcoming wedding, enjoy!!
Kindest regards Pat
Dear Laura and Rory
I hardly know where to begin to thank you for such a wonderful time before, during and after Fiona and Darran’s wedding at Boturich; you were both wonderful.
Whenever we arrived at Boturich you always magically appeared to plan and support us through the process. You managed to provide highly supportive suggestions but in an easy going and most professional manner. Consequently, we felt very confident and relaxed throughout the day of the wedding.
Laura, you were a fabulous help to Fiona in planning the day and very responsive to all her suggestions. Rory, the house and garden looked perfect and that doesn’t happen without a lot of preparation. I was told after the wedding you ran a guest home as she had fainted. Being a doctor, she self medicated, had a nap and returned to the wedding as she so wanted to be there!
Many of our guests came from all over the world, however the majority were Scottish and to a man they were bowled over with the amazing venue that is Boturich Castle. Fiona and Darran had the wedding of their dreams, thanks to you both.
You make a great team together. Many, many thanks for all your hard work and attention to detail.
Love and best wishes
Anne Smith (mother of the bride)
Dear Laura and Rory
I’m writing to say first and foremost thank you for such a great day that you helped us have. You were both delightful to work alongside, in the run up to the event and also on the weekend itself.
You have a really special venue and I don’t think I quite realised how special until our big day arrived. All of our guests were absolutely bowled over.
Thank you for being so accommodating and helpful. Not to mention allowing us to genuinely have the best day of our lives.
I will not hesitate to recommend Boturich Castle to anyone I know getting married for a multitude of reasons.
Thank you again,
Fiona and Darran xx
Thank you for such an amazing day on Friday! It didn't matter that it rained - the whole day was perfect - all thanks to you guys. Can't wait to get the professional photos and DVD. Thank you for everything.
Lots of love
Joanna and John xxxx
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and Rory for making our day so special. We could not have hoped to find a more stunning venue and the help we received from you just made it all so easy, thanks once again.
Connie & Stephen x x
Just a little note to thank you for such an amazing day. As soon as we saw Boturich we knew we had to get married there and it certainly lived up to our very high expectations. Our guests were awe struck at the beauty of it all and everyone really enjoyed the day. Thank-you to both you and Rory for all your help on and prior to the day. It was lovely having such a personal touch and meant we were able to get things just as we wanted.Carrie and Gareth
Boturich castle is a magnificent location for a wedding. I recently conducted the wedding there of Lyndsey Ryden and Michael Dickie. The setting could not have been better. The sight of the white covered seating set against the backdrop of the stunning scenery of Loch Lomond was truly breathtaking and after 30 plus years of doing weddings I thought I had seen it all. I was greatly impressed by Rory and Laura who handled the event with a nice combination of professionalism and warmth. Top marks for providing an excellent venue for folk wishing to be married on the Bonny Banks. Boturich is really stunning and deserves to be one of the foremost places in Scotland for folk to get married. I wish you the very best.
Rev. Ian Miller
Our wedding day at Boturich was beyond words. The look on our guests faces as they arrived said it all, it is the perfect combination of breathtaking scenery, luxury surroundings and the warm, professional support available from Laura every step of the way. We are eternally grateful to Laura and Rory in helping us achieve the wedding of our dreams and our photographs have given us a lasting memory of our beautiful day. Thanks so much for everything!
Oreste and Laura Gargaro
Laura and Rory,
We are so glad that we chose to have our wedding at Boturich Castle. The day was more than we could ever have dreamed of and our guests were blown away with such a venue! Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever been to - what a compliment! Thank you for all your help and advice, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
We had an amazing day and you played a major part in making everything so perfect.
We just wish we could do it all over again!
All the best for the future.
Nick and Lisa
We get to play at many venues but the marquee at Boturich Castle beats them all. The setting is out of this world and the acoustics first class.
Gerry Kirk - Keeper Lit
As soon as we visited Boturich it was obvious that there could not be a more scenically spectacular wedding venue around Loch Lomond. From the moment the decision to hold Zoë and Jason's wedding there Laura could not have been more helpful. She had a full complement of highly recommended support companies that we could contact to complete the arrangements for the wedding day. She arranged meetings and continually liaised with us. She bent over backwards to be helpful.
It was a huge bonus when we learned that planning permission had been granted for the semi-permanent marquee as this meant one fewer thing to think about and any worry concerning the marquee was transferred to Laura and her partner, Ruairidh.
On the day everything went like clockwork, and once again Laura and Ruairidh were unobtrusively present and at the ready. Fortunately because their planning had been so excellent all went without incident.
Here are some of the comments made by our guests in their 'thank you' letters:
“The occasion was ‘crowned’ by the magnificent backdrop of Loch Lomond - breathtaking”
“The venue was just perfect, what a beautiful setting looking across Loch Lomond”
“The venue was out of this world”
“The weather turned up trumps to show off the magnificent setting at the castle”
“What a beautiful setting and perfect organisation”
“Zoë was a radiant bride, only rivalled by that most glorious day and setting. What a place to have chosen and receive that weather!”
“Your choice of venue was -as we have come to expect from you- stunning and the sun shone to order.”
Undoubtedly Boturich Castle is the most beautifully located venue for a wedding anywhere in the central belt. Simply it has the best of one of Scotland’s finest views – looking north, up Loch Lomond beyond the Ben and Ben More towards the Glencoe ranges. Stunning on the spectacular day we were afforded.
The state of the art marquee, large and luxurious, nestling in high slopes above the southern shores of the loch has two sides of panoramic windows. Adjacent to the castle and with generous access to lawn, decking and surrounds it is everything a host could demand.
Laura and Ruairidh are endearingly charming, as well as incredibly helpful, having thought through all the detail which goes into a seamless function.
There is no question Boturich Castle Venue is THE place to entertain.
Robert & Sammie
Many thanks to you and Rory for all your help and hard work. Boturich is a magical setting , especially on such a lovely day. You have both been so helpful and pleasant throughout.
Everyone had a great time, especially Mike and Yifan, and the marquee and Boturich were admired by all.
