When I stepped into the Crichton Memorial Church at the Crichton Estate I knew it would be the venue! After spending years searching for a wedding venue, the grand banquet hall in Easterbrook Hall made me think of my favourite fairy tale Beauty and the Beast and it was booked on the spot! The grounds outside were perfect for our traditional vintage carousel. Not forgetting the stunning gardens which were perfect for pictures! Nothing was a bother for the team at Easterbrook, my menu was completely bespoke, and they sourced unique items such as pink lemonade all within our budget! The roads were closed off for our exclusive use and we were given early access for preparations. The team were always at the end of the phone to assist with anything I needed. On the day, I didn’t have to think about the venue arrangements and the day was flawless! Perfect in every way. The venue speaks for itself, but the service was incredible too. We had a wonderful day which we will treasure forever. I really did feel like a princess!

Our wedding reception in the Crichton Church was a magical experience and everything we could ask for. From the moment we stepped inside the church we knew it was the ideal wedding venue for us. The staff worked incredibly hard to make our wedding dreams come true. They ensured all our preparations came to fruition and they were in touch with all our providers. We had a perfect day and would whole heartedly recommend this venue to others.

That's us finally on our honeymoon, it's time to relax. I just wanted to send you a quick message to thank you for making my dreams come true on Saturday. We had the best wedding we could ever have imagined and every single one of our guests had a great time which is all that matters. You and your team are amazing, I wish I could have a wedding with you every week. Thanks again.

Kirsty and Dean Armstrong
I just wanted to thank you and your team at Easterbrook for the wonderful job that you all did on Saturday evening. I am most grateful to you for the great job that you did for us all and congratulate you on the professionalism and high level of service that we enjoyed. The meal was absolutely first class so please pass my thanks to the chef and his team in the kitchen.
All of the guests that I have spoken with since Saturday have been full of praise for the way the whole evening went and I am sure that this is in large part down to the work that you and your team did in the run-up to the event and during the evening.
As mother of the bridegroom (Neil Meikle) I felt I had to write to you about their wedding day - it was perfect - much of which was down to you and your staff.
I have received nothing but compliments all week - your ears must have been ringing!
Very few, if any guests had been down to Easterbrook Hall before or even heard of it! It will certainly be talked about in Lanarkshire now and hopefully encourage others to travel south to Dumfries.
First of all they loved the face that the Church, venue and hotel were all so close. The Crichton Church was like a mini cathedral and breathtakingly beautiful. The grounds were superb and well looked after and te hall itself was a perfect venue with so much room.
The guests commented on the staff, first of all when canapés were being served - how pleasant and helpful they were (the canapés were also very tasty) Then the meal itself - as one of my friends who works in catering said "I knew they meant business when I saw their white gloves!" The young staff performed like clockwork while their supervisor kept them on their toes. Again everyone loved the meal, compliments to the chef and his staff.
The turnaround for the dancing seemed slick and simple. I personally would have liked to be at the wedding as an ordinary guest instead as members of the wedding party are often too pre occupied to take it all in.
I know that in the run up to the wedding you were a great help to Shona and Neil in your own quiet efficient manner with nothing being of any trouble to you - thank you sincerely for that. Please also pass on our compliments to everyone of your staff as they were great! I certainly hope that I will have the opportunity to visit the Crichton estate again in the future.
Mrs Elizabeth Meikle
We just wanted to say thanks for such a perfect wedding in March. The venue was amazing and we've received many compliments about how much our guests enjoyed themselves. Michaels sister has even booked Easterbrook for her wedding next year so we cant wait to come back!
