This week we are reviewing one of our favourite wedding venues – the fabulous Garfield House Hotel. Located in Stepps (just outside Glasgow) it is a great choice for wedding receptions!
Over the years, we have had the pleasure of visiting to provide wedding reception entertainment and are always suitably impressed.
Yes, the building itself, bedrooms, grounds for photos to be taken etc are fabulous but what makes this venue so special is simply the staff. Wedding co-ordinators John Kelly and Kara obviously have vast experience and put the minds of their clients at ease by running a “tight ship” which results in the smooth running of a wedding reception.
The above video clearly demonstrates how much space there is for a DJ or band to set up at the venue. Our impressive lighting rig worked well at this “Ibiza Themed” wedding as you can see the dancefloor has plenty of stunning lights creating the wow factor!
Relating well to entertainers, virtually nothing seems to be too much trouble which from an entertainer’s point of view is at times difficult to come by!
Sometimes venues tend to forget about wedding suppliers attending the event, who are equally as important as the wedding couple and their guests! We are always welcomed warmly. Every question is answered, nothing is left to chance making the whole process seamless. The staff have such a positive attitude and we always enjoy the “banter” when setting up for the evening.
The simple element of smiling, laughing and joking allows us as a supplier to feel at ease and look forward to the evening ahead
Add to this the fact that the main room itself has ideal space for such things as mood lighting, photobooths, dancefloors – it is a dream venue. With the bar being in the same room, the wedding guests are not missing out on the evening reception by having to go to another room for a drink! Always a bonus to us wedding DJs!
Clients often report to us that the food is outstanding and the customer service brilliant.
One of the testimonials we received earlier this year from a wedding at this venue included this;
Our guests commented on how much fun they had throughout the evening and even the staff at our venue said our DJ was fantastic!

Something so simple as getting us a glass of water (you would be surprised as to how many venues do not do this!) and setting the in-house lighting correctly to create the correct ambience, makes us feel important and valued. All of the staff involved in the wedding day deserve high praise and recognition.
