Mount Stuart has been named Scotland’s ‘Romantic Wedding Venue’ at the Scottish Wedding Awards on Tuesday night.

The historic house beat off competition from top class venues across the country to pick up the title at the ceremony held in Glasgow’s Crowne Plaza Hotel.

The award recognises not only overall excellence, but also individuality and uniqueness. The win comes just weeks after the news that Mount Stuart has appointed a new operations director, Adam Ellis-Jones, who will take up his post on 23 March.

Mount Stuart Director Stephen Jenkins said the Romantic Wedding Venue title was a ‘fantastic’ way to kick off what promised to be a very exciting period in the estate’s history.

“We are delighted to be acknowledged once again as one of the UK’s most prestigious wedding venues,” he added.

“Last year we were recognised in the Best Wedding Venue category of the national Hudson’s Heritage Awards, and now we’ve been awarded this title.

“It’s a welcome recognition of the tremendous amount of work which the Mount Stuart Trust and its staff put into making sure that every single couple who chooses to hold their wedding here has the best possible experience.

“We pride ourselves on the impeccable service we provide to all our clients, and I’m delighted that the feedback we receive from not just the brides and grooms but also their families and other guests has been so positive.

“Our determination to achieve excellence in everything we do, coupled with the amazing venue we are fortunate enough to oversee, must make us a very strong challenger for any wedding award and we’re thrilled to have won this one.

“We look forward to continuing to make that special day as special as we possibly can for many more couples in the future.”
