We had the best experience having the Culloden host our wedding dinner for us.
From start to finish the service was exceptional... there was no 'chasing' up or un necessary stress, every little detail was taken care off, even the catering staff really excelled in their customer service.

I know everyone says it is the best day of your life but that is because it really is! From start to finish everything ran perfectly. There was no problem too big that the staff couldn’t solve. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, from bar staff to the night porters and of course my lovely

wedding planner Ainsleigh and the banqueting manager Victoria.

The culloden is such a beautiful place to get married and the views are fantastic for pictures without having the worry of going somewhere else. I find it so calming when I am there even though I have a one year old child running around like crazy. It is honestly one of my favourite places in the world to go.

The food on the day was delicious. So many guests told us they have never had beef so tender let alone when the chef was making nearly 60 of them! The desserts were so tasty I only wish there had been some left over.

The bedrooms are clean and luxurious and we were in my favourite suite overlooking the water although by the time we got back to the room after dancing til 2am and up in the morning for the private breakfast with family and friends, I just I wish I had more time to enjoy it!

I didn’t feel stressed, I was able to relax and enjoy the day. Not once was I told to hurry up because we were behind time and I was chatting too much. I was told “it is your day” and I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better one. I just wish I could do it all over again!

Thank you to all the staff for a day I will always remember

Our wedding at the Culloden estate and spa was the perfect day. The grounds first and foremost are beautiful. Everything went very smoothly and the staff were excellent and extremely helpful throughout the day. The decorations at Christmas were warming and the food throughout the whole day was

Had the best day from start to finish, the sun was out and we got beautiful pictures across the grounds of The Culloden! We got a very kind and professional greeting on arrival with drinks in hand!! Food was perfect, 2 weeks on and guests are still commenting on how good the food was and how

My husband & I could not recommend the Culloden highly enough! Such a beautiful venue, in a stunning setting with breathtaking views, we really could have been anywhere in the world.

We began planning our wedding in January this year & despite having a short time in which to plan, the staff at

the Culloden were so friendly, accommodating & nothing was too much trouble. We are indebted to them especially for putting us in touch with a wonderful pastor who helped us create the perfect ceremony.

Special thanks must go to Ainsleigh who really was a blessing in the latter months of planning; she put us at ease, helped in any way she could, was always available to chat & bounce ideas off & who just took the stress out of it all, helped us to enjoy the build up & who's honesty & kindness we are so grateful for.

The day itself was a joy; a fantastic day which we will never forget, made possible by the seemingly effortless work of Ainsleigh, Caolan and the whole team. We honestly didn't worry about anything other than just enjoying ourselves. From the venue itself, the food & drink, to the way in which our suite was decorated, we wouldn't change a thing.

We have said to many people who've asked "how was the big day?", We would love to do it all again!

We will certainly be back to celebrate our anniversary, to reminisce on what was an unforgettable day & experience, if not before!!

To all the wedding planning team!

We just want to say a massive thank you for helping us plan our big day on 2/11/19. We really had the best time, the venue was absolutely stunning & set up to perfection!!

We enjoyed everything from our first initial meeting & show around with Michelle, to

our meal tasting & chat with Jenny & then our chats, phone calls & emails back & forward with Ainsley. Everyone made us feel so at ease & relaxed. We never felt under pressure or stressed to do something within a certain time frame.

Victoria, you looked after us so well on the day & the ceremony & drinks reception room was gorgeous. It was set up just how I wanted it & looked so beautiful. As far as I know everything ran so smoothly & the atmosphere was really chilled. It was so nice to see our guests having such a wonderful time.

A big thank you to the chefs for the amazing food, so many of our guests have expressed how the meal was one of the nicest they’ve had at a wedding. So thank you for that. Thanks to the serving & bar staff for keeping things running smoothly as well.

Could you also pass on our thanks to the concierge staff, one name that I remember & a couple of our guests spoke highly of was Aaron. Everyone on the team was so helpful & friendly, even the night before & day after. We still felt so special & everyone was so excited for us, it was really nice.

All in all, the culloden really have a wonderful team, everyone is so friendly & approachable & they would go out of their way to help you no matter what. We’re so glad we picked the culloden as our wedding venue, it holds a special place in our hearts as we met there & got engaged there & we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Can’t believe it’s all over now but we’re looking forward to bumping into everyone again in the future! I’d say we’ll be back at least once a year to celebrate all our anniversaries!!

Lots of love

We absolutely loved our wedding day at the beautiful Culloden- it was a wonderful venue in every way! All our guests loved it; the venue, the food, the extras and the atmosphere! The lady Victoria was an absolute gem and so great on the day with keeping us on time to being so relaxed and joining in

In the lead up to our wedding we were kindly looked after by Cheryl, who made planning our wedding at the Culloden so simple and her attentiveness was second to none. No request seemed to much and she advised us were needed. Each time we visited the Culloden the staff were fantastic and so

welcoming. The day before the wedding we were given full access to the room and Victoria was our coordinator on the day! She was absolutely fantastic and the day was executed to perfection. The food was incredible and far better than we ever expected - it was so lovely to walk around chatting to our guests and seeing cleared plates, they are still raving about the food! And as an extra special touch we were able to all have breakfast together the following day which just finished the weekend off so nicely!
We couldn’t thank the Culloden and their team enough for their help in the lead up to the wedding, on the day and after in clearing everything up, they made our day truely memorable and we honestly couldn’t recommend them enough to any future brides and grooms!

I cannot reccomend the Culloden Estate & Spa enough for a wedding. I was able to arrange everything with our wedding coordinator Jenny via email which was easier for me throughout the whole process. When it came to our wedding day... everything was utterly fantastic. From the breakfast myself and my

bridesmaids got served in our room while we were getting ready, the service of every member of staff we met during the day, the dinner we were served to the stunning Holywood suite and views over looking the lough. We were also fortunate enough to have our ceremony out on the balcony of the Holywood suite which could not have been more perfect! The cost of our wedding was extremely reasonable considering the location and service that the Culloden provide. The rooms are so luxurious and the honeymoon suite was out of this world... they were even able to accommodate a bed for my 3 year old daughter in the suite. If I could do it all over again ...I would still pick this venue! .

The hotel itself provided crisp rooms, sumptuous suites, a super spa and Irish pub all set in heavenly, well kept grounds and with views over Belfast Lough.

In particular we wish to repeat a huge thank you to Jenny Mercer and staff, also manageress Helen and staff at the Cultra Inn for the

barbeque the night before, and Victoria Parkes and banqueting staff at the Stuart Suite. Not to mention the chefs who provided excellent hot food despite many Norwegian speeches and shenanigans. Also the bar, restaurant, reception, housekeeping and door staff must not be left out.

Many of the guests express their wish to return, and so do we :-)

From the moment we walked into the Culloden we knew this was the place we wanted for our wedding reception. Michelle was amazing from start to finish, none of my 500 questions in my little blue book were ever too much hassle for her to answer. The atmosphere on the day was just something else, with

the help of your team it ran so smoothly, everyone was relaxed and everything we had asked for was in place. I will never forget the warm welcome Victoria gave us when we stepped out of the wedding cars as she congratulated us as the new Mr and Lady Brown! The room looked amazing, our hunter green looked out of this world in the Stuarts Suite, but I might be biased on that one! The food was superb and was put down in front of each guest at the one table at exactly the same time, no-one was left waiting. The food was delicious, roasting hot and full of flavour, better than we had ever expected and our glasses were always full. The staff the whole day could not have been any more attentive or polite. Everyone had a wonderful evening, some people even manage more food when the evening food came out! We stayed in the Palace Suite....well oh my! As if we hadn't been treated like absolute royalty already, we got the stay in the most amazing room on this earth! We had private dining for breakfast with all our guests that stayed over, again the food and service was out of this world. I can not thank the whole Culloden staff enough, even the people we didn't get a chance to meet. It is a day we will never forget, it being made more special as it was my grandparents 53rd wedding anniversary and my parents 30th, all of which got married in the Culloden all those years ago.

We had looked at 3 or 4 places before we went to the Culloden. As soon as we walked in to the reception we knew it was the place for us. This feeling was only increased when we got shown around the hotel and grounds and met the wedding team. We then chose our date as we were very keen on a Saturday

so as many of our friends and family could attend as possible. The day went brilliantly from start to finish! The glorious sunshine allowed us to take some fabulous photos in the grounds of the Culloden and allowed our guests to enjoy the patio area outside the Cumberland Suite. Michael the event manager was great at pushing back the running order to allow us more time to mingle and chat to our family and friends. This was something that we really appreciated. Once we sat down to the meal it was even better than the tasting that we had, with many people remarking on the quality of it.

We both had a truly magical day . The staff were polite, helpful, they could not do enough of both us and our guests. The food was amazing and all our guests commented highly (“Best beef mash and gravy ever!”).

We stayed in the Dufferin suite on our wedding night and the night after. The

suite was spectacular with with breathtaking views of Belfast Lough, a very comfortable bed and seating area. Our guests who stayed the night of the wedding that we spoke with the next day all said their room was wonderful.

Special thank you to Jenny Mercer our wedding coordinator at the Culloden, she was their for us for all our needs throughout the two years of planning the wedding.

We would like to say that all staff throughout our stay were very polite and professional. We would highly recommend both hosting your wedding here and spending the night.

Kind regards

We fell in love with the Culloden Estate and Spa because of the picturesque surroundings and the grand ballroom. It helped that it was a convenient location for our guests, friends and family as well.
The service we got from the wedding team and the Culloden team as a whole was unbelievable. They

were all fantastic and brilliant at their Jobs. The wedding team think of every detail and I also particularly loved the fact that one of your team took a photo of us on our wedding day then when we were invited back for our 1 year anniversary stay they had it framed and sitting in the room along with a massive fruit platter etc. Really was a brilliant touch and VERY thoughtful.

We booked to go see a few venues on the same day as we were back from London for the weekend. The first one was the Culloden and we loved it straight away. We loved the atmosphere in the hotel, the impeccable service and the fact that it overlooked Belfast Lough. We went to see a few more places but

neither of us had the same feeling about them as we did in the Culloden. It all just flowed from there and we were really lucky to get the date we got. The day itself honestly just exceeded our expectations and that was down to everyone who helped us

We wanted a winter wedding, and at the top of the list was The Culloden Estate and Spa. Nowhere else compared to the setting, views and packages offered. It was extra special for me as my parents held their wedding reception in the Stuart Suite. It is amazing, with open fires, Lady Jane Tower, Lough

windows and the open planning, you could literally do anything with this room. The Christmas decorations were in full flow at the Culloden and we added some lanterns, candles, and garlands, but we really didn’t need much for the stunning venue.
