Wedding is the most important Special Day of your life and to make it even more special couples often organize them in amazing venues, from hotels to gardens to stadiums. The city of Glasgow has to be one of the best destinations in Scotland for festive celebrations, parties and special occasions. And with the fact that the local minister, priest or clergyman, if you ask them nicely, can marry you wherever you want – on top of a mountain or deep in a pine forest, getting married here is truly worth a try. Here are some superb venues in Glasgow, which will turn your ‘once-in-a-lifetime-experience’ into a fantastic fairy tale.
Grand Central Hotel
The Glasgow & Clyde Regional Wedding Venue of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2013, the stunning Grand Central Hotel is bound to dazzle your guests with its exceptional wedding offerings, warm and welcoming hospitality, delicious food and flexible menus, as well as luxurious bedrooms to suit every style and budget.
Here your wedding ceremony and reception can be large or intimate, as the hotel features two spaces: one the magnificent Grand Hall for large weddings and events with a capacity to accommodate up to 400 guests, or a smaller space for up to 200 guests. What makes the Grand Central Hotel so special is the commitment to service and many years of experience. In addition, the hotel is of great historical importance, because it’s from this hotel that television’s inventor John Logie Baird transmitted the world’s first long-distance TV pictures.
