After looking at what felt like 100 wedding venues all over Scotland (slight exaggeration), it was safe to say I was fussy with what I wanted in a wedding venue. I had a vision of a boho tipi wedding with wild flowers, hay bales and festoon lights. On our search for the perfect venue, we were set on an idyllic outdoor setting for our tipis that was central for our friends/family and offered a relaxed vibe. We also wanted the full bridal party to stay on or near the venue to make it more of a full weekend event. Within minutes of walking around Hartree, I just knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. So much so, that I booked our date before my groom even viewed it. It had everything we wanted: Amazing grounds, gorgeous tipis and stunning accommodation for all of our wedding party. It couldn’t have been more perfect!
We were particularly searching for a venue that had the relaxed vibe that we desired for our big day. Within minutes of meeting Amy and the team at Hartree I instantly knew it was the venue for us. Amy, Hartree’s wedding coordinator, was so friendly and approachable and seemed so happy to cater for what we wanted for our big day. Hartree offer loads of amazing packages but they were totally accommodating when I explained I wanted a complete DIY wedding and were open to all of my “unusual” ideas, accommodating and helping us as much as they could. Amy was so professional and easily contactable, answering all of my questions about the the big day. She ensured everything went smoothly on the lead up to the wedding day and kept our stress levels so low that we could actually just be excited.
The entire team on the wedding day: Alan, Amy and Matt especially, ensured everything was seamless the entire day – this really took a massive weight off and allowed us to just relax and enjoy our wedding day. They couldn’t have been more helpful.
Matt and the catering team were incredible, working with us to create an amazing menu that everyone loved and allowing us to have all the special touches we wanted for the day. Our guests really enjoyed the relaxed platter style dining and the strawberry gin mojitos were my personal favourite!
When people say your wedding day is the best day of your life, they definitely aren’t lying. Looking back it just feels like a fairytale. Hartree allowed us to bring our dream wedding to life – I can’t recommend the venue and all of the team highly enough. Thanks for everything.
