As well as being a super romantic and picturesque venue, Ingliston Country Club & Hotel has a brand new secret weapon that’s guaranteed to make your wedding a day to remember…
…his name is ‘Wee Bob’ and you’re going to LOVE him!
Here’s a wee introduction to the newest team member to join Ingliston Country Club and the lowdown on throwing your dream wedding at this gorgeous venue.
The wow factor
Watching Prince Harry and Meghan leave their picture-perfect wedding in an open carriage pulled by majestic grey horses was enough to ignite the fairytale buzz in even the most chilled out of brides.
If you’re determined to have a big day that’ll rival even theirs in wow factor, then Ingliston Country Club with its romantic location in the Kilpatrick Hills just 20 minutes from Glasgow City Centre is the venue for you.
As well as its own fabulous white carriage with a team of white horses and liveried grooms, it’s also recently added a miniature Shetland Pony to its team.
Clocking in at a pint-sized 31 inches high, ‘Wee Bob’ is a star attraction that no one will be able to resist.
He’s trained to act as ringbearer or to walk the bride, bridesmaids or younger attendants down the aisle (we’re sure any flower girl or page boy would absolutely love that).
But he also loves people and will happily mingle with your guests during your drinks reception. We’re told his superpower is that he’s fully housetrained, so you won’t have to worry about him disgracing himself in front of all your guests as they enjoy a few canapés.
Creating a unique wedding
Nigel Bird, CEO at Ingliston Country Club & Hotel said, “When we first heard of Wee Bob, who lives with his family and wanders in and out of the house to watch TV, we immediately saw his potential for weddings. Couples and their guests adore having the romance of horses involved in their weddings but Bob is just the right size and temperament to get really involved”.
The venue has also recently acquired three tame alpacas which we’re sure will also prove very popular with your guests, as well as adding a unique edge to your wedding photos.
And if you really want to do something different, Ingliston Country Club’s highly personalised Wedding Planner service can deliver anything from jousting to circus weddings, as well as uniquely romantic themes designed around your personal fairytale .
A gorgeous venue
Miniature Shetland Ponies and alpacas aside, Ingliston Country Club is at its core a truly special and stylish Scottish wedding venue.
And it’s won multiple awards to prove it, including Wedding Team of the Year from the Scottish Hotel Awards, a Prestige Award as “Most Desirable Wedding Venue” and Best Wedding Venue (Over £6000) at the Confetti Awards 2017.
The unique facilities on offer here include two beautiful function suites and indoors and outdoors marquees which can accommodate between 75 and 500 seated guests (the super elegant Art Deco styled Salerno Suite is one of our faves).
Both ‘Wee Bob’ and the horse drawn carriage are available to all wedding parties booked into Ingliston Country Club.
You’ll also get the full support and help of its award-winning wedding team who’ll go the extra mile to turn your big day into a fairytale-perfect celebration.
