"We hold such wonderful memories"

We can't recommend the beautiful House for an Art Lover enough as a wedding venue. We got married at the Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed House at the end of April this year and had a brilliant day. All of the team from the House have been great, from the moment we visited it as a potential wedding venue to the day itself.
To be honest, we didn't really entertain any other venue. We went straight to the House as we love Glasgow architect/designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh and loved that it was a Southside Glasgow venue. We also liked that the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening party would all be in the same place (and that there was parking available for our guests). The House held a wedding fayre soon after and we came away from that having chosen our piper, our photographer and our DJ. It was a great start to our wedding planning and great to know that these preferred suppliers had all worked at the House before.
Throughout all our planning we have been really well supported by Rachel and Hannah and the House Weddings team. They contacted us when decisions needed to be made and our emails have always been answered promptly and they've given us really useful guidance. Not only that but the rest of the team who work there from Patricia in the shop to Fiona and the team in the cafe have been really welcoming and interested in our upcoming nuptials, which has been a delight.
The day itself was brilliant. I don’t think the House for an Art Lover organised the sun shining into the Music Room as we signed the marriage schedule, but they did everything else. From the moment we arrived we were in the calm and capable hands of Robert, our brilliant Master of Ceremonies. On the morning of our wedding Robert was even moving chairs so that both my parents could walk me up the aisle, which really made my day. 
The day ran smoothly from the arrival of guests and the ceremony to the wedding breakfast and the evening party. Our guests all loved and appreciated the venue and the beautiful grounds and they loved the delicious food cooked by the House chefs. The quiet room was a perfect addition for guests who needed a more low-key environment while those who wanted to, danced the night away in the cafe on the dance floor. Maria was on hand to ensure we all enjoyed the late licence - we lasted till 1am. 
We hold such wonderful memories of our wedding day and we will look forward to visiting the House for an Art Lover many more times in the future.

"We are so glad we chose to have our wedding there"

We had the perfect wedding day at House for an Art Lover. All of the staff including Hannah our wedding coordinator and Robert who ran things on the day were fantastic. They were so accommodating to anything that we wanted. The venue itself is stunning and all of the guest commented on how amazing the food was and how attentive all of the staff were. We cannot fault House for an Art Lover and we are so glad we chose to have our wedding there.

Amanda & Frazer (28.12.17)

"We cannot thank you all enough."

We just thought we would send you an email to thank you and all the staff for an amazing day that everyone had on Saturday. Everyone commented on the venue and how beautiful it was. Chris and I appreciated all the work done by staff and how they were on hand for anything but were not noticeable about being there.

Can you please thank Robert and Scott for looking after us on the day and at night, We cannot thank you all enough.

Pauline & Chris (28.04.18)


"it was truly special getting married there"

Our wedding day was wonderful and I would like to thank you, Robert, and all of your amazing colleagues for the day you gave us. So many of our guests told us they’d had the best time at our wedding; that they loved the venue, how helpful the staff were - it was truly special getting married there. It’s about a year now since we first visited, looking for the right venue for our big day. You were the first place we looked, and we knew pretty much then and there. Thank you for your help over this last year, it’s been so appreciated.

Krystal & Svend (22.04.18)

" We had a perfect day"

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping us organise a fantastic wedding. We had a perfect day yesterday everything was amazing and we had the most enjoyable time. 

Also a special thanks to Robert who did wonderfully at keeping the day running smoothly. 

Kirsteen & Denis (08.04.18)

"Everything went like clockwork"

‘I would like you to pass in my personal thanks to all concerned for an excellent wedding last Saturday.  All our guests raved about the venue and the smooth and professional way your team, led by Robert, handled the entire event. The quality of the food was excellent.  Everything went like clockwork and any requests for help and assistance were attended to promptly and courteously.  Clearly customer service is paramount at HAL and your team are well-trained and polite. All in all we had a great day-to-remember.  Thank you. Again, many thanks for all you help and for the wonderful time you gave us.

Ian McMahon, Father of the Bride (Andrew & Fiona 01.04.2017)

"All of our guests said it was the best wedding ever"

On behalf of my family I would like to say a huge thank you to you and all the wonderful team at House for an Art Lover for making Rachel and Theo's wedding day so wonderful.

First of all the venue is absolutely beautiful and each of the rooms that we used was just right for the occasion. Everything about the venue was so stylish - Rachel could not have picked a better venue. The food was delicious so please let the chefs know how delighted we were with everything. It all ran like clockwork and I was impressed with the way that the staff served our meals seamlessly with everyone getting what they ordered. Scott was amazing so please pass on our thanks to him. He kept everything running so smoothly and was such a lovely man, making us all feel confident that we were in good hands. Your staff were friendly and professional and we appreciate their hard work and the way they looked after us. Thanks also to you Hannah for co-ordinating everything so well. All of our guests said it was the best wedding ever and couldn't believe how we had arranged everything in such a short amount of time. However the credit goes to you again for providing us with a list of such excellent suppliers that we were able to use on the day. It's such a shame that the day was over in a flash - but I'm sure the photos will bring back lots of happy memories.

Sandra Symms, Mother of the Bride (Rachel & Theo  05.04.2017)
