“Nick and I got married at Ormlie Lodge in March 2015, we had the most incredible day and Ormlie Lodge’s team played a huge role in this. The venue is absolutely spectacular and being able to use the place as though it was our own was incredible, for me getting there on the morning of the wedding and watching as the event unfolded was incredible.

Emily and her team went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. Nothing was a problem, the venue, the food and the staff were all incredible. We had so many great comments from our guests on how fantastic Ormlie Lodge was and wonderful how everything was in one place. We can’t recommend them highly enough!

Thanks very much to the team at Ormlie Lodge for helping us have such a fantastic wedding day!”
