We had a fantastic day and night! Can’t thank the Culloden staff enough for all their efforts on making the perfect day! With 320+ guests they surely done my wife and I as well as our guests proud! Great job and keep up the great work team! See you all soon!

I just wanted to say thanks to you, and everyone at the Culloden who was involved in our wedding day. The day was perfect, and we couldn't have asked for it to be any better! All staff at the Culloden were great, and the service was just fantastic on the day. The room was set up

perfectly, and it looked even better than I had imagined! The food was delicious, and honestly the day just flowed so well, we loved it. We are so happy we chose the Culloden as our venue- every single guest commented what a beautiful place it was and were so impressed.

Thanks for making the day so special, and we will definitely be back in future!

need to specially call out Barry, who took incredible care of us on the day. He even walked me down the stairs because I was so nervous. He was amazing, can’t say enough good things about him!!

Thank you again!! I wish we could do it all again, but I’d like to think it’ll just be the one wedding for me!
