A Comrie Croft Wedding is one with a difference! Last weekend Gordy is a DJ had the absolute pleasure of visiting this unique venue for the first time and hopefully not our last!
Situated 4 miles from the town of Crieff, Comrie Croft is a wee bit different from a typical wedding venue. A 200-year-old farmstead, house and barn set around a courtyard, together with 231 acres of fields and woods ensures this venue is not only relaxed but wedding couples can do as they like – yes it is a DIY venue!
With there being a long waiting list of up to 2 years, it is evident from first impressions as to why this is the case. The remoteness, stunning scenery, the relaxed vibe and the ability to do your wedding “your way” makes Comrie Croft a very special place.
The ceremony, buffet meal and reception all took place in the barn which is pictured below. The newly married Mr and Mrs Tryon made us feel so welcome from arrival and we were so impressed with how they had transformed a barn into their very own fairytale!
With a large stage and easy ground-floor access into the barn with no steps, this venue was ideal for us to set up our lighting rig and speakers. The dancefloor was large – plenty of space for everyone to party and burn off the hog-roast buffet that was consumed!
The attention to detail that our wedding couple went to was astonishing. Hay bales covered in cosy blankets, white drapes and fairy lights added to the romance of Comrie Croft. The bar located next door was cosy, welcoming and the staff employed extremely friendly and eager to help with anything!
We were in a rustic, non restricted venue where the atmosphere was very laid-back and informal. Everyone we met absolutely loved the different ambience this place had, including us!!
We could not do this blog without mentioning our fantastic bride Karen-Anne’s footwear – she had thought about everything!!! Due to it being February she hired in a heater for the barn and everyone was comfortably warm. She even had s’mores which are a traditional campfire treat popular in the USA and Canada consisting of a fire-roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of biscuit!! Gordy is a DJ had to try this as Comrie Croft had campfires in abundance.
With plenty of accommodation on site for wedding guests (up to 70 people), this venue is certainly not one to be missed. While we appreciate that this location and style is not suited to everyone, if you are having your wedding reception here, please don’t hesitate to get in contact today!
