Gourlay Events is a catering and marquee hire company based in Perthshire. We asked them to share a little more information about themselves, where they get their inspiration from, and what their recommendations would be as a supplier we often work with at Kinkell Byre.

About Gourlay Events –

What it the story behind Gourlay Events?

Gourlay Events started off in the town of Crieff as a family butchers in 1946 sourcing all ingredients from local farms and the surrounding areas.

In 2009 the family decided to expand the business and offer food for parties and weddings. This took off in a huge way with more and more bookings for weddings all over Scotland. The family reinvested all the money back into the wedding business, by expanding their catering service and buying marquees in which to hold events.

Real Wedding – Craig and Nicole

Wedding Date - Saturday 6th October 2018

“We loved being able to make everything completely unique to us and really tried to add as much individuality as we could to our decor and our day over all.”

Tell us a little bit about planning your wedding? What inspired you to pick all the things that you did and what was most important to you both?

We got engaged 10 days before Christmas 2016 and agreed not to begin wedding planning until after the New Year. We couldn’t help ourselves from doing the odd Internet venue search though and that’s how we came across Kinkell. We viewed it on the 30th December (already breaking the pact not to plan anything until after New year!) and fell instantly in love.

Real Wedding – Leanne and Jeff Wood

Wedding Date – 28 October 2017

“Immediately after seeing Kinkell we cancelled the other viewings and booked! It was perfect”

Tell us a little bit about planning your wedding? What inspired you to pick all the things that you did and what was most important to you both?

I’m from Newcastle, and had always thought I’d get married there, but the most important thing for both of us was to have a humanist wedding, so Scotland it was! We both agreed we didn’t want a typical wedding, and we loved the look of the barn weddings we had seen. We arranged to see a number of different venues, Kinkell being the first – immediately after seeing Kinkell we cancelled the other viewings and booked! It was perfect, as we both wanted a wedding that was personal to us, and the Byre was essentially a blank space for us to fill as we wanted. We also were quite set that we didn’t want a formal meal, so the BBQ option from our caterers was perfect.Continue Reading…

Real Life Wedding – Graeme & Kelly Stirling 

Wedding Date – 17th August 2017

 

“We are absolutely delighted with our wedding day and all that Kinkell Byre had to offer us!”

 

Tell us a little bit about planning your wedding? 

It was really important to us to have a rustic wedding; that was more about us as a couple celebrating the love we have for one another, along with our friends and family. The feel of the day was more important than the decor and fancy frocks! Graeme is a farmer and Kelly rides horses so Kinkell Byre seemed like such a perfect representation of our lives.Continue Reading…
