More than amazing, our life saver. After having to change our venue at the last minute, Michelle from Auchendarroch was amazing. She fitted us in and made sure everything went off without a hitch. We are so pleased we went with Auchendarroch house and it was the most perfect day. Worth every penny.

Michelle and the team at Auchendarroch House are amazing. The venue and grounds were perfect for our wedding. Michelle leaves no detail unattended, going above and beyond. Our day went so smoothly with Michelle and her team attending to every detail. I can't recommend Auchendarroch House enough, it was the best choice we made.

Thanks so much for the lovely review Melissa!

Gorgeous venue, delish food, lovely staff - they went above and beyond in my opinion. The gardens were an amazing backdrop for our photos. I'm so glad I found them! So accommodating for small weddings like ours. Not to mention just a great location being so close to Hahndorf - was a hit with the guests.

The staff of Auchendarroch House were absolutely incredible for our wedding in early January. Michelle was fantastic in the planning stages, and on the day she, Tamika, and Mitch were absolutely fabulous at serving our guests. The food was delicious and well portioned, and our guests with allergies were well catered for. Tamika in particular was beautiful with the children and retrieved them from playing on the lawns to let them know their dessert was ready. The venue was styled to my exact requests and I couldn’t have done it better myself. I can’t speak highly enough of the functions team at Auchendarroch House - they really did go above and beyond.

Michelle and her team did an amazing job to make our day run flawlessly. The venue itself is beautiful. We had our ceremony outside on the lawned area under the " wedding tree" and it was very serene and peaceful. There is a choice of rooms for the reception to suit everyone. The meals were delicious with very generous portions and served by friendly competent staff. A truly lovely day Marot and Roger

Elegant and picturesque venue! We had our intimate wedding in December under the oak tree and dinner in the Billiard Room. Everyone raved about the delicious and generous sized meals. No one left hungry! The service was friendly, professional and catered to all our needs. We couldn’t fault anything and are so happy to have found Auchendarroch House. Thank you Michelle and team!
