"Hi James, I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so so much for having us yesterday. Everything was absolutely perfect and better than I ever dreamed. Your staff are lovely, caring and an absolute credit to you. We were made to feel at home and welcome from the minute we walked in the door to the minute we left. Everything was flawless, the food was incredible (although at one point I did panic that I wasn't going to fit into my dress after the size of breakfast!!) your home is beautiful and we wouldn't have picked anywhere else. It suited us perfectly.

Thank you again James from the bottom of my heart. Our day was out of this world."
Nicola and Ross


"Hi James, Just to say a huge big thank you for everything you have done to make our wedding weekend so special, I honestly can't thank you enough for the effort you went to before and on the day. We both had a fantastic time and literally everyone commented on how beautiful Springkell is and how smoothly the whole day went.

So many people said it was the best wedding they've ever been to - although maybe people always say that to the bride and groom! Certainly was my favourite.

Thank you, you really made it special for us."


"Hi James, We just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us share your beautiful home last weekend. We can’t begin to tell you how perfect it was - from Friday morning right through to Sunday afternoon. Our wedding truly was the best day of our lives and we couldn’t have imagined doing it anywhere else.

We will write to you formally once our thank you cards are ready but we couldn’t wait that long to thank you, your family and all of your staff for everything you have done to make our day so special. We will forever be advocates for you and your beautiful home, but you have another 75 fans now! Each and every guest was blown away by the beauty of the house and gardens. I can’t remember how many times people said “How did you find it?”. We feel so lucky that we did!

The beauty of the house speaks for itself, even though on Saturday full of our family and friends it looked as good as it has ever done before in our eyes. But, we feel the service from you, Fiona, Sarah and the staff more than matched the outstanding house. The personal service Springkell provides is really a rarity in the wedding world and coupled with the house really is a recipe for long term success.

We’ll be sure to share the professional photographs (some teasers from Geebz attached already) once they are done, as well as the video. Thanks to the weather, we got some great shots of the house!

Thank you once again - we’ll never forget Springkell."
Lynsey & Scott Wilson


Be Prepared To Fall In Love

"My husband and I had our wedding at Springkell House in March 2015 and James together with his lovely team of people could not have done more to ensure we and our guests had the perfect weekend. Every step of the way, from the first viewing of the magnificent house and its grounds, to the farewells the morning after the BIG day, James and his team are so welcoming, warm and accommodating and you really feel as though this beautiful mansion is, for the weekend, your home away from home. This is in fact why Scott and I first fell in love with Springkell, as despite its opulent and grand appearance, it feels so homely and comfortable, without lacking all the luxuries you would expect. Planning for the BIG day is made easier with the help of James and the lovely Fiona’s assistance, including contacts and recommendations for anything you could possibly need. Every request was met with enthusiasm and any help I needed was received. The food the entire weekend completely exceeded our expectations and we were both so happy to see and hear how much our guests loved it all, from the amazing selection of tapas on the Friday night, to the wedding breakfast and even the delicious canapés. In addition to the food being gorgeous, the chef made things a lot easier for us by letting us know that nothing was a problem and that any dietary requirements/ requests, children’s meals etc could all be tailored to our needs, which made our guests feel extra special throughout the weekend. The layout of the rooms is so ideal, with areas for everyone including those that want to dance, those who want to relax somewhere a bit quieter, even the tv/ snug room where the staff set up the xbox for the boys to play was a complete godsend to the parents who were loving the fact they hadn’t seen their children all night. The list goes on and on. There are many impressive venues throughout Scotland, however Springkell is so much more than simply a pretty venue and my husband and I are forever indebted to James, Rachel, Fiona, Anne and every member of the Springkell team for opening the doors and allowing us to hold our special day here, it really couldn’t have been more perfect. As I said to one of my friends who recently got engaged and who was going to view Springkell…. Be prepared to fall in Love! All our love and thanks."
Scott and Jen McLean


Fabulous Wedding Venue!

"Dave and I were married at Springkell on 29 January 2015 - what a fabulous venue for a 'white wedding' - not sure how James managed to order the snow for us too!! It was brilliant! >From the day we first went to see Springkell, James and his team could not have been more helpful - nothing was a problem! We opted for canapés, choose our own menu and evening buffet - the food was amazing! All our guests were very complimentary about both the venue and the food - in fact 'best wedding ever' was quoted on many occasions! The venue is formal, yet so homely - from the actual wedding ceremony, to the wedding reception and the evening disco - it was all so relaxed! The guests were able to mingle around the mansion house and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful! We also had two Shih Tzu dogs as part of the wedding party - this was not a problem and in fact staff and guests just fell in love with them! I would certainly recommend Springkell as a wedding venue - it was just such an amazing day! Thanks to James, Fiona, Ann and all the staff - you were wonderful!"
Sandra and Dave McGarrie


"Springkell House- The Wedding of our Dreams — David and I would like to extend our thank yous to the team at Springkell for hosting our wedding on Saturday 12th July. I would also like to mention the chef, specially as the feedback from friends and family has been nothing short of exceptional. Admittedly, I am a perfectionist, so please take it from me...If there are any other brides who are looking for a wedding day that you can only dream of, contact Springkell. We will remember this occasion for the rest of our lives. Thank you again."
David and Ciara Scott


"Perfect wedding venue!! — Having recently had our wedding here on the 4th October both me and my wife would whole heartedly recommend this venue to anyone who is currently planning a wedding. From the moment we first visited the house over 18 months before we knew it had something special and would allow us to hold our perfect day. The venue was stunning when we first saw it and was only improved with the continued renovations through an attention to detail and commitment to quality meaning by the time of our wedding the venue looked absolutely incredible. James, Rachel, their family and all the staff could not of been more welcoming or helpful than they were to either us or our guests which meant that we had a brilliant weekend that nobody would forget easily. We stayed the whole weekend and were able to having many things that made our day a little more unique to us and there was never any question from James to whether these were ok or not, this is just a measure of how accomodating he was. Overall, our weekend could not have been any better and much of the credit for that goes to Springkell giving us a relaxed and enjoyable time and we can not recommend this place more!"
Tom and Nicola Spencer


"We had our wedding at Springkell in October for 90 guests and we had exclusive use of the house. The venue is stunning with beautiful grounds.

From our arrival on Friday morning, the staff were helpful, professional and very attentive. The cottages and the hotel rooms are decorated to a high standard, all our guests were very happy. Springkell did a fantastic job and exceeded our expectations. We are very glad we choose Springkell, we had a fantastic wedding day"
Justine and Lindsay


"Just a quick email to say ‘Thank you’ – we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the food was delicious, music was great and staff very friendly, we couldn’t have wished for better. Springkell’ is a fabulous building. Thanks again."


"We had such a beautiful wedding at Springkell! The day went so smoothly, without a single hitch. Please thank the team for being so welcoming and working so hard to make our day so perfect. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
Kirsten and Ross


"Thank you for giving our daughter and son-in-law such a special wedding day. Everything went perfectly, and all of your staff worked so hard for us. All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue was and they all had a wonderful day."
Maureen and Paul


"A superbly organised wedding. Many, many thanks for a really enjoyable and stress-free wedding and weekend!"
Fiona & Kenneth
