On the 12th November 2016, Skeabost House hosted the wedding of Catriona Gunn and Euan MacGillivray. Catriona and Euan are from Barcaldine, near Oban and had been planning their wedding since Euan proposed to Catriona on Valentine’s day 2016.
The MacGillivray wedding party took exclusive use of Skeabost, with guests occupying the 18 bedrooms. The wedding ceremony took place in the Conservatory at Skeabost, in front of 75 family and friends. The champagne and canape reception followed. The wedding meal was served in the dining room and was a three-course menu that included a delicious goats cheese and black pudding starter, fillet of beef for the main course and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Following the speeches, the wedding party returned to the conservatory to see the bridal couple have their first dance as husband and wife. The highland ceilidh with Donnie Matheson’s dance band saw the party continue well into the night. To capture every detail of the day, Catriona and Euan chose Lynne Kennedy to photograph their wedding.
Catriona and Euan booked their wedding in March 2016 over the phone and then came to visit, with their parents and discuss the details of the wedding and the running order at the end of March. Neil MacDonald, Hotel Manager, was their wedding coordinator and helped Catriona and Euan make some of the decisions about their day, drawing on his extensive experience of weddings.
