Few places are as synonymous with luxury as the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews.
Whilst it’s perhaps best known for its world-class golf course, the premium spa and five-star hotel facilities have all won the Old Course Hotel international acclaim.
With such a glowing reputation, it’s not hard to imagine the standard of weddings held here – grand celebrations and parties are unsurprisingly handled with flair by the hotel’s event team. What might surprise you, however, is that a huge, grand wedding isn’t the only option available to you at the Old Course Hotel.
With a variety of different spaces on offer both within the hotel and around its grounds, the Old Course Hotel can create weddings to suit all budgets, sizes and tastes.
Always dreamed of a super-intimate, romantic and personal wedding? As well as smaller rooms and restaurants that are ideal for smaller gatherings, there are also more unique options, such as the library (ideal for book-lovers) or the pub on the golf course (which would suit golfers to a tee).
There are lots of spots around the hotel and grounds to take advantage of too, all of which offer the same luxurious atmosphere that the Old Course is known for. Your best bet for finding exactly the right spot for you? Take a tour with one of the hotel’s wedding coordinators; they’ll be able to point out all the different wedding spaces and options.
Plus, they’ve seen weddings of all shapes and sizes at the hotel over the years, so they’ll be more than happy to share some creative ideas on how to plan exactly the wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
Of course, if you don’t want to hold back at all then the Old Course is more than equipped to help you celebrate tying the knot with a grand wedding.
Take advantage of the beautiful backdrop of the world-renowned Old Course Links, Swilcan Bridge and stunning West Sands beach by choosing the rooftop West Deck on the fourth floor. There’s also the conservatory (again, the course will be your backdrop here), the Hall of Champions and the newly refurbished ballroom, which features new fixtures, fittings, bar area, carpets and back-wall mirrors.
With the ballroom seating 130 and the Hall of Champions seating 240, you’ll have no trouble finding space for a larger guest list. Plus, the hotel is dog-friendly, so you won’t have to leave anyone – even your pet! – out of the celebrations.
No matter what size or style of wedding you throw at the Old Course, some things will always be the same.
One, you’ll always benefit from the stunning surroundings of the golf course and St Andrews coast, as well as the five-star setting of the hotel as the backdrop to your celebrations. And two, your wedding will be planned and executed to the most meticulous of standards without causing you any stress.
You’ll be assigned a wedding co-ordinator who’ll take care of everything. They’ll guide you through all the initial wedding planning decisions – such as where to get married in the hotel and menu tasting – before taking over the execution of your wedding.
From organising the schedule for the day to getting the venue set up and tidying up at the end, the Old Course will have it all under control. All you’ll have to do is turn up and enjoy yourself. Whatever your idea of a dream wedding looks like, the Old Course Hotel will provide the perfect setting to bring your plans to life.
If just one day at the Old Course doesn’t sound like enough time to you, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate for longer.
