My daughter Tori and her now husband Mike had their wedding in Drenagh yesterday 7th June. To say it is a perfect venue for a wedding is an understatement. It is a beautiful setting. A lovely service was held in the Moon Garden, followed by drinks reception in a fabulous house, dinner and dance in the very beautiful marquee. The staff in Drenagh are exceptional-friendly, helpful and calming every step of the day! We cannot thank them enough for making Tori and Mike's wedding day so very special. Fran and shaun

Daughter's wedding last week and Drenagh made it so special. It was in the walled garden in the marquee. The marquee was so bright and beautiful inside and the food was amazing. The toilets are purpose built and would compare equally with any high class hotel. The staff are so friendly and anything we asked prior to the wedding was never a problem they accomadated us in every way. When we booked it we knew that this was a very special unique place. Cathy and team go out of there way to take care of every little detail. There are wonderful gardens to take photographs in. Every one had a very special and wonderful day.

My wife and I had such an amazing wedding at Drenagh. So many of our guests have been in touch to say how fantastic the staff were and how spectacularly beautiful Drenagh was. It's stunning location certainly made our photographer happy.

As a couple, we were looking for a venue that would allow us to make a unique day that fitted our personalities. Drenagh couldn't have been more accommodating in every aspect of this. Their handling of us and all the arrangements leading up to the day made us feel very relaxed and confident. From day 1 Cathy, Joanne and their team shared in our excitement and enhanced our experience of organising a wedding.

As mentioned in previous reviews the Drenagh estate went into administration just a few months before our wedding date. But at no point did we ever feel insecure as the team were incredibly open with us. Weddings are a big undertaking and they understood this. Don't let the administration status of the estate out you off from visiting when looking for prospective venues. I'm sure you will realise how magical it is and the staff are when you get there. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it..

It would be unfair not to mention Chris' incredible meal and Victoria from the wedding room whose well stocked bar our guests had a fair stab at trying to empty!

Just home from celebrating our son and daughter-in-law's wedding at Drenagh. They say behind every great man there is a great woman, well, behind every great venue there are great staff, and this in certainly the case with Drenagh!. Drenagh is itself a magical place but this is brought to life by the staff who were brilliant. We had the pleasure of staying there prior to the wedding and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Can't praise them enough, nothing was too much trouble, we were made to feel so special, thank you so much to Cathy & her team for truly enhancing what was a brilliant day. Thank you also to the chef the meal was truly first class. We have eaten in a lot of top class establishments and this certainly was in this standard.

Dear Elizabeth

Thank you for taking the time to put your lovely comments on our page; very much appreciated.

I am delighted that you were happy with the service you received here, and in particular the lovely comments you made about all the staff and Chris (C L Catering) our chef.

It is a pleasure (for all of us here ) to be so involved in a couple's special day, and to be part of the celebrations with both them and their families.

A Scottish wedding is very much a highlight for us, and it was lovely to meet you all (especially little Travis) throughout your time here.

I hope you had a pleasant trip back to Perth and if you are ever back here again in the future, please do call and say hello.

With sincerest thanks

Just returned from my brothers wedding at Drenagh and the venue is stunning. The marquee is large with plenty of indoor and outdoor space and the best toilets you are likely to find in a marquee. What made the day really fantastic however was the staff, who could not have been more helpful and friendly. From the wedding co-ordinator to the bar staff, every one was great.

Never written on trip advisor before, but promised the staff at Drenagh that I would do this. In the last 35 years I have been to hundreds of weddings ( I'm a professional photographer) but I have just experienced the best ever wedding in my life, I know it was my little girls wedding, but the service that we received from the staff at this beautiful reception was impeccable, we really did feel that it was all done specially for us.... It was genuine . The food was perfect, served with perfect etiquette in the stunning marquee after a wonderful service in the house ( it was raining cats and dogs outside). The sun came out after the service and photographs could have been taken all day in the extravagant grounds. We danced all night and staggered back to the house in the wee small hours and, unbelievably had tea served to us in front of an open log fire at 2 o'clock in the the morning ! An amazing breakfast served in the grand dining room the next morning after a good snooze in the lord it up bedrooms, all hand cooked by the lovely "B" ( thanks for the 2 eggs !! B x) This place is unique and deserves to be amongst the top of the best places to have a wedding reception...... Anywhere !
