Exceptional wedding!
We cannot thank Assynt House and its owners Elizabeth and Graham enough for making our wedding better than we could have ever imagined. However, it was more than that, and we can't wait to find an excuse to come back. We would have no hesitation recommending Assynt House to anyone considering it for either a holiday, gathering or indeed if you are looking for an exceptional wedding!

The House and Grounds are superb
We decided upon Assynt House for our Wedding weekend based on their website photos and all of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Elizabeth and Graham really helped make our wedding a relaxed and perfect day. This didn’t start with the weekend, it started months before with the planning. Elizabeth and Graham know what they are doing and are exceptional hosts. I planned this wedding from afar and they helped make it all feel so easy! The House and Grounds are superb, other reviewers have comment extensively and I wholeheartedly agree with how wonderful and special this place is. All guests loved the place, said it was one of the most joyful wedding weekends they had been too. Graham’s catering was just what we wanted for our wedding. Local fresh, ingredients and wonderful flavours. Guests loved all food! We loved it, our guests loved it, and we have the most amazing memories one could have. You really should go with Assynt House, whatever your occasion is, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Elizabeth and Graham for your warm welcome and making our weekend the incredible event it was! We will be back!

Wedding guest at the Gallie wedding
Assynt house is the perfect location for a wedding. We were guests at my good friends wedding in September and it was amazing from start to finish! The house and gardens are a 5* location. The bedrooms were gorgeous, so clean and decorated to the highest of standards. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect, not only for the bride and groom, but also for every guest. I would highly recommend Assynt House to anyone planning their wedding. In fact, if I could have my wedding again, I’d do it at Assynt!!

Still overwhelmed
We are absolutely overwhelmed by the most amazing wedding we had at Assynt house. We miss the venue and miss the owners more!! They are exceptional hosts who had such attention to detail, our day was like a fairytale. Nothing was too big an ask of The staff of Assynt house. The venue and location is simply picturesque and although we only live in the neighbouring town, we felt a million miles away from everyone. The day itself was calm, with only close friends and family in attendance. There was so much I forgot to tell Elizabeth before I walked down the aisle but it’s like she read my mind and everything was in its place. We got married in the drawing room but my husbands mother with our children and family all playing lead roles in the day. Absolutely perfect. We then all went outside to allow the team to turn the room around for dinner - wow they worked miracles as it was done with ease!!! They served drinks and canapés to all the guest and were so friendly. We went back into the drawing room for the dinner - wow I have never tasted scallops like that. Our guests are still talking about the food to this day. We had our toasts after the meal and then left Assynt to go to a hall to meet our evening guests. When we came back to asssynt house, the place was ship shape again. What an experience. That intimate feeling of having your nearest and dearest stay with you for the few days before and after your wedding. The care and love the team of Assynt house put into they day and our stay was beyond expectations. No words will do Elizabeth and Graham justice for the day they gave us. They are the most welcoming down to earth couple who love what they do!! We love Assynt house and we love the owners too! We had our delete and come true!! ❤️

What an truly remarkable and memorable day!
I was lucky enough to be a guest at a wedding at Assynt House. The day was a very special day as it was a family wedding but the love and intimacy that surrounded the couple was enhanced by the beautiful venue and surrounding area. The house was spectacular inside and out with every attention to detail thought about! The food/catering was totally delicious and we all continued to feel full of love as we settled into our luxurious beds! Wow! What lovely memories!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

This is very hard! One couple had a really intimate wedding in the drawing room with just their closest family and a few friends and then after drinks and canapés the rest of the guests arrived, they gathered in the garden and one of their friends "married them" all over again with everyone there, so informal and very special.
