we got married here 7th january 2011 and stayed 2 nights including the night before. there was 19 of us including a 3 year old a 2 year old and a 9 month old baby. Its a beautiful place and we couldnt have dreamed the whole experience to be as good as it was we are so pleased that we had decided to get married here as we had never seen it before we went so all the planning was from websites and phone calls.
All staff are lovely and friendly and are happy to help you with anything. all the rooms were beautiful, very clean (im very particular) and had been recently re-decourated the bridal suite is massive and we couldnt believe how beautiful it was the whirlpool bath is amazing and we really appreciated the little toouches they included non-alcoholic wine on ice instead of sparkling wine as i dont drink and 2 boxes of chocolates which we had on both days.
the food was beautiful and really big portions! we had a meal the night before at the restaurant and my partner had to eat my sticky toffee pudding as i was too full after my main course! the childrens portions were very big too and all of guests enjoyed all the meals.
the forge itself was beautiful and we really did have the most perfect day maggie the wedding co-ordinator was a huge help and everything ran smothly. we had fiona and june for hair and makeup, paul m taylor for photography and videography, craig irving scottish piper, a dove story dove release and tartan carriages horse and carriage ride all services were exceptional and would reccommend them all to everyone.
