"We cannot thank Natalie and all the staff enough for making our wedding so special for us.

We only had 8 weeks from our first meeting with Natalie to our wedding date and she could not have been more helpful to ensure that everything went perfectly on the day.

All our guests were impressed with the hotel and the outstanding service and we cannot thank everyone enough for making our special day so wonderful."
Sally & Stuart Bell


"The food is superb and we received many comments that the wedding meal was not the normal wedding offering but a far higher standard. Everything on the day was perfect and ran efficiently - or at least seemed to. All waiting staff were wonderful, we had a few young children and they went out of their way to help. Nigel seemed to appear and fix things before they happened, offering me water when I didn't even realize I was dehydrated!"
Isobel & Kevin Mackay


"When we booked our wedding the previous wedding co ordinator did not in still any confidence, got a lot if things wrong and we were about to cancel our wedding and book with another chain of hotels, only when Suzette Macgregor took over did our wedding plans turn from a nightmare to an amazing journey.

Staff at the hotel need to be congratulated on their service, success and friendliness approach to helping us celebrate our very special day."
Michelle & Darren Paterson


"We were so pleased we chose Macdonald Marine Hotel & Spa for our wedding reception, we viewed more than 10 venues across East Lothian, but none of them couldn't match the package or service Macdonald Marine Hotel & Spa offered. Weeks after our wedding we're still receiving complements about the wedding and how attentive the staff were on the day. I honestly can't thank the team enough. I would absolutely recommend Macdonald Marine Hotel & Spa to any bride who is looking for a stress-free wedding day!"
Lauren Jones
