We got married at Springkell recently, a fantastic few days with friends and family that passed much too quickly. It was great to have use of the whole house, making everyone feel much more at home. During our stay the meals were delicious, with plenty to eat and catering for those with particular dietary needs. Jill and James were always on hand to help out in any way making sure that everything went smoothly. Beforehand when doing the months of organising, Fiona was prompt to answer our many emails and always happy to find a solution that suited both ends. We would certainly recommend this stunning venue with beautiful grounds as a wedding location to remember.

We recently held our wedding at Springkell. From the initial arrangements with them in January through to the wedding itself on the 12th November, the staff there couldn't have been more helpful. Not only did they arrange everything for us with amazing suppliers, they kept us fully informed throughout and on track with our budget.
On arriving the day before our wedding, Steve was there to greet us, and throughout the whole 2 days, he was there for anything we needed, no matter how big or small. As our guests began to arrive, the staff were fantastic in making sure they were comfortable, and ensuring the luggage was delivered to the correct room.
The rooms were all amazing, each done in their own individual style. Our bridal suite was simply stunning. As we had exclusive use of the venue, it felt very much like home, and we had no issues with leaving our doors unlocked. It was our own little Downton Abbey. The food is superb, and they will cater for any dietary intolerances or allergies.
For the wedding room and ballroom preparations, the staff were more than happy to assist and give advice, and go out of their way to make sure it was perfect.
James, Fiona, Jill, Steve, Terence and the rest of the staff you are all truly fantastic

Springkell was the first venue we visited when looking for somewhere to get married and we soon realised it was perfect for us.
As is clear from photos - Springkell House is stunning. The grounds and exteriors provide varied photo opportunities, and the rooms are beautiful. The brilliant natural atmosphere of the house meant that a few personal touches from our decorations were all we needed to make the space our own.
A highlight for us were the lounges, giving our guests the opportunity to relax and chat with a drink, choosing to move to and from the music and dancing of the main room as and when they liked. This meant that each of our guests got to come together and celebrate in a way that made them feel comfortable.
James, Fiona and Jill were thoughtful and attentive throughout our engagement, whenever we had questions or needed to visit the house. On our wedding day, Jill was invaluable - her professionalism and humour make her such a calming presence.

On the 18th October I was privileged enough to hold my wedding at Springkell. There are no words to describe how special a day it was for us and all our guests. We have had nothing but very positive feedback from everyone and there are no words that I can use that will be enough to express our gratitude to James, Rachel, Terence and the other members of staff who made our day the best ever! Huge thanks also to Steve and Fiona who kept me calm and helped with everything. Anyone looking for a wedding venue, Springkell ticks every box.

Our wedding can be summed up in one word.... PERFECT! Nothing was too much trouble for any of the Springkell team and a big thank you has to go to James, Fiona and Jill for all their hard work and guidance throughout the whole wedding and during the planning process. I wish we could do it all again as it was just the best day ever. Beautiful venue, the most delicious food and just an amazing day. Thank you again so much for the best day ever.

Thank you so much for everything in the build-up to and of course on the weekend of our wedding. We had a really wonderful weekend, it was perfect. All our guests had a fabulous time and especially those staying in the house and cottages, they really loved the relaxed experience of the weekend.
You looked after us so well on the day and put up with all our questions/visits in the lead-up so thank you.
It's a beautiful house and grounds and we are so glad we chose Springkell for our wedding!

We are now finding the time to write to you a month or so after the wedding as we were so elated and on a high we found it difficult to put into words how thankful we were to you all. From the beginning of the planning to the very end we were always pleased with the service that we received from James, Fiona and all at Springkell. We wanted our wedding to be very personal, we were always granted permission to tailor our wedding to the way we desired as I can see that this is also important to Springkell that bride and grooms have the wedding they choose - personal and original. This made our wedding planning a joy for my husband and I and we treasured this experience of designing our day around such a magnificent venue. James, Fiona and staff were always so friendly and professional whenever we made contact during the planning stage.
The day before was a real highlight for our guests and for us as we were able to mingle with our guests and get settled into the house. This allowed all of the wedding party to relax and helped with some nerves, again the service we received could not have been more accommodating. We played Highland games and clay pigeon shooting which allowed our guests to enjoy some competitive fun. James was a true host and we will cherish the memories out in the garden forever. In the evening the BBQ was delicious and we have had many comments to say how much they enjoyed the food from many guests - by that point in the night. The quality of food was amazing and catered for all dietary requirements throughout the two days.
The wedding day itself was like a dream come true! However, I am aware that it was due to all the hard work and effort of Fiona, Jill, James and family, chefs and staff. Chris has mentioned that anything he had asked for was promptly carried out before the ceremony. I am so heartened that I married my best friend in such a beautiful, grand setting. Many of our friends and family have stated it was the best wedding they have to been as I reiterate I know this has to do with the hard work and ethos of Springkell and sure somehow, they managed to make the sun come out for us as it's a magical place.

My wife and I along with some friends and family members recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Springkell. We renewed our wedding vows with a formal ceremony. James was very accommodating of our needs and provided Fiona to assist in the planning. Fiona did an outstanding job and was instrumental in booking every vendor for our celebration - piper, makeup, hair, musicians, DJ, menu selections, cake, flowers, photographer and videographer. When we began the planning process we were a bit apprehensive as we live in the United States. Fiona guided us through the entire process with emails and phone calls. We could not have been happier with the outcome. James, Fiona and staff were every bit as polite and pleasant in person as they had been on the phone and through email.
Springkell is a beautiful home built in 1734 that has been lovingly restored by James Johnson-Ferguson. The house has been in his family for several generations. The grounds are historic and beautiful with lush and varied plants and trees. There are expansive gardens, secluded gardens, walking trails and a mini highland games. The atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxing.
The food was outstanding and was supplied by Springkell's own Chefs. The staff were friendly and attentive, not stuffy or overly formal. Our guests, most of whom have travelled extensively, all thought the food was fantastic.
We and our guests had a wonderful time celebrating. Most of our guests visited other places in the UK during this time and said that Springkell was the highlight of their trip.
To James, Fiona and staff - a heartfelt "thank you" for making our time at Springkell memorable. In my wife's words, "our time at Springkell was magical"
Springkell is a beautiful place and we highly recommend it for a wedding, celebration, family reunion or get away.

We got married at Springkell in July. We could not have had a more wonderful weekend and the venue exceeded our wildest dreams. From arriving on the Friday until we departed on the Sunday both us and our wedding party were looked after to the highest of standards. The staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful throughout with nothing being too much hassle.
Planning the wedding from a distance could not have been more straightforward and was a genuine pleasure. Both James and Fiona were so accommodating and catered to our every request. When the weekend arrived the venue was idyllic with everything organised and prepared to a 5 star standard. We were lucky enough to enjoy an outdoor ceremony and reception due to the summer heatwave. The round garden was so unique and special as a ceremony venue. We were able to hold canapés in the front garden and the guests seemed to love the freedom to roam around the grounds and downstairs of the house. The marquee looked incredible on the night thanks to the hard work of the staff, in particular Jill, who is literally the best. She was there from start to finish and was a genuine star of the weekend. Her, Steve and their team are so friendly and understanding, that with James' guidance they make the perfect wedding staff.
In the run up to the wedding we were particularly difficult with our own choices of food however on the day it all came together in spectacular fashion with Terence managing to cook venison for 200 without batting an eyelid. The salmon and prawn terrine to start was a raving success as well.
The beauty of Springkell is the flexibility of exclusive use for the entire weekend which allowed us to have the party we always dreamed of until the late hours of the morning with our nearest and dearest around us ... thanks again to the staff (Phoebe!) for keeping up with us!
Finally the house itself is stunning and the perfect combination of luxury and comfort without being overly pretentious. The rooms and bathrooms are extremely grand and comfortable and the honeymoon suites gorgeous! James has a great thing going on and is a true gentleman. As you may have gathered, we could not recommend Springkell highly enough to anyone looking for a wedding venue, a place to throw a party or simply a night away. Thanks to James, Fiona, Jill and all the staff for helping us to have the wedding of a lifetime!

We got married here on 5th May and stayed for the bank holiday weekend. James and Fiona were great in helping us organise the day and accommodating our requests. When we arrived for the weekend we had a very warm welcome from Jill who was fantastic. There was nothing that was too much trouble, she was a super star and we had so many comments from people about how helpful she was. The venue itself was fantastic, the grounds and the building are unbelievable. It's great for the kids as they were able to play and run around the grounds. The food was great and again nothing was too much trouble. James organised a mini highland games for the day after that was enjoyed by all. We had a fantastic weekend and our guests had nothing but positive things to say. It was everything we hoped for and more. Thanks again to James, Fiona, Jill and the rest of the team at Springkell.

We would like to say a massive thank you to Springkell, our wedding weekend was perfect. Fiona was absolutely fantastic and dealt with 101 questions through email on the run up to the day, such a huge help when we both live so far away from the venue. On the weekend Jill was amazing nothing was too much trouble and she made us feel so relaxed and chilled out. As for the food both on Friday and Saturday, we've had nothing but positive feedback from guests, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The house itself is beautiful and has something for everyone from the snug, lounge and bar, it was amazing to be able to relax with just close friends and family. James is a fantastic host and made everyone feel most welcome on our special day. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you so much, to all the staff: it really was the most perfect weekend.

On arrival we were welcomed by staff and the icy Scottish weather. The grounds are outstanding, the frost/snow made it all the more magical. Fiona and Jill are amazing, so patient and helpful. A fairy tale wedding from start to end. James is a great host and welcomed us into his family home. Everyone commented on the grandeur of the manor house, felt very princess like. Thanks again to all who helped to make our wedding such a success.

We recently had the privilege of getting married at this beautiful house and setting. Over the course of the weekend, we were treated to the highest level of service on all fronts - and I can't thank James enough for this. He truly went the extra mile to ensure everything ran smoothly and all needs were catered for, and made us all feel very welcome in his house. In addition, Fiona was very helpful in the run up to the wedding.
On the day of the wedding, there was a most welcome guest - Pepper, James's delightful black Labrador who helped to put my mother at ease, who had to leave our family Labrador with friends back in London.
There is something very special about celebrating one's wedding at Springkell. The house and grounds are very well maintained, and provide the perfect setting for such an occasion. Furthermore, the accommodation is of a high standard, the food is superb and the bar is very well stocked - catering for even the most discerning guest.
Thanks so much to James and the team - you really made is such a special wedding weekend.

Thank you for making our wedding truly special, I know you will get this a lot but we really couldn't have chosen better. You welcomed us into your home with such warmth and kindness, nothing was too much trouble the entire weekend. You let us put our own stamp on our wedding which made it so personal.
The hospitality of your staff is overwhelming and they put us on a pedestal the entire weekend. We would like to specially mention Jill and Steve as not only were they incredibly attentive, but so friendly that they made all of the expected nerves disappear.
Fiona, we couldn't have done it without you, it's a challenge organising a wedding from a distance, but you made it so easy and again added to the wonderful experience you gave us.
James, thank you for letting us use your special house, your hospitality and generosity are a rarity and one that left a memorable mark on both us and our guests. We have had so many wonderful compliments on our wedding, the venue, staff, organisation, relaxed atmosphere, food..... oh let's not forget the food.
Terence is amazing, breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday was faultless, so thank you!
I hope you all know that you are a very special team, the location is amazing, but it is the events YOU create that are truly unique and you should be very proud of what you do for couples on their wedding day.

Springkell is the most perfect wedding venue. Within seconds of arriving, we knew we wanted to get married there. James and Fiona were so amazing up to the day, answering my numerous emails and helping as much as they could to make the day run smoothly and make it personal to us. Since our arrival on the Friday, the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodation. Jill was so excited to show us the dining room which she had decorated and laid out - it was the most beautiful room I'd ever seen. On the morning of the wedding, the staff let me have breakfast in my room with my parents which was lovely and made sure we were happy and had everything we needed all morning. Throughout the day, guests were commenting on how helpful the staff were and what a beautiful house it was. I am so glad we found Springkell - we will definitely be back for a future anniversary!
