it's all in the details

The finer details such as menu creation, flowers, sourcing photographers, table decor, hair & beauty, wedding cars and live music are all areas we can help with - making local recommendations.

We have an impressive variety of over 100 whiskies in the Highland Park bar, as well as over 70 gins (including all your Scottish favourites), so can recommend great menu matchings and work with you to plan a day that is unique in every way.

We care about getting things just as you want them, and will work with you to achieve this.
