Brig O Doon House Hotel is a spectacular venue for any occasion and if you decide to hold your marriage ceremony and wedding celebrations there i’m sure it’s a decision you’ll not regret.

Set on the outskirts of Ayr the venue is an easy journey from the near by area or even Glasgow. The magnificent ballroom looks out over the hotel’s beautiful gardens and more importantly the Brig O Doon itself. Set in an area steeped in history, and just along from the birth place of Rabbie Burns, you’re spoilt with choice of backdrop for your outdoor wedding photographs. And even on a rainy day, the hotel offers a stunning range of indoor locations too. Not that we’re expecting rain on your big day of course, but it’s always good to have a back up plan- you know how unpredictable the Scottish weather can be!

The bridge it’s self is the one made infamous by Burn’s poem Tam O Shanter where an unsuspecting gentleman and his trusted stead encountered the local witches and warlocks. He uses the bridge to escape and flee the torment of the group. But fear not, the witches and warlocks are well gone and won’t be making an unexpected appearance at your celebrations, although I’m sure it could be arranged if you so wished.

The ballroom itself is the centre of your celebrations, with the gardens as an option if the weather suits, and with a stunning staircase into the room, you’ll be sure that your entrance is a grand one.

After the ceremony you are greeted in the upstairs bar with a glass of bubbly where you can spend time with your guests and take advantage of your surroundings for those all important photos. Meanwhile the hotel staff will transform the room ready for you to join your guests for the 1st class wedding breakfast.  After your meal the room is transformed once again in preparation for your evening reception where you can dance the night away and celebrate in style.

The Brig O Doon House Hotel is a superb choice of venue and I know the staff will make sure your day here goes smoothly, creating important lasting memories for both you and your guests.
