- Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
The Best wedding held at the Royal Over-Seas League was for 50 people , a truly traditional Scottish wedding with Piper on arrival and Ceilidh in the evening The ceilidh band had the guests on the dance floor all night . The flowers and decor were of thistles and wild flowers with just a hint of tartan. The wedding party journeyed up to the roof Terrace where stunning photographs were taken especially of all of the men in kilts. A caricature artist appeared at the drinks reception and drawings of all the guests were on display to be taken home- an album was created for the couple of all their guests , to top it off there were sweetie tables in place with all your favourite sweeties from the past.
