Entertainment & Extras

​Here at Springkell we can organise all kinds of entertainment and extras such as discos, DJs and Pipers. Our experienced Wedding Co-ordinators will help you every step of the way to make sure you and your guests enjoy a personalised and fabulous wedding experience.

We are happy for you to arrange your own entertainment and extras too - we want you to have the wedding of your dreams.

Ceilidhs, Bands and Discos

The most popular choice for larger numbers is to hire a Ceilidh band and/or disco. You are then guaranteed a party atmosphere with dancing into the small hours, lots of fun and laughter as well as adding some real Scottish ambience to your wedding reception evening.

Music can continue until 12 midnight. If you are booking Exclusive hire of the house then a 1am license can be used when pre-booked and arranged with the house.

Springkell can arrange this for you or you can arrange yourself – whichever you prefer.

Wedding Bands / Ceilidh Bands from £750.

(Subject to availability. Summer months / special dates may cost more).

Scottish Pipers

Pipers can also be booked to play before and after events.

The Piper pipes the Bride and Groom into the restaurant for their wedding breakfast and all guests enjoy this very special Scottish tradition – It really is a great way to make an impressive entrance in front of your family and friends!

Wedding Flowers

A superb Bridal Posy and a Grooms Buttonhole, prepared fresh a few hours prior to your wedding and delivered to the house. You have personal contact with the Florist to arrange the style and colour of bouquet you would like.

Springkell are happy to for you to organise the wedding flowers, but if you would prefer we can sort this for you.

Wedding Cake

Your first duty as husband and wife – cutting the cake! We offer a delicious 10″ round wedding cake with sugar flowers.

Springkell are happy to for you to organise the wedding cake, but if you would prefer we can sort this for you.

Owl Ring Delivery

Barney the Owl will fly in carrying the rings to the gloved hand of the groom, best man, or supervising falconer.

This unique experience makes a fantastic addition to any wedding ceremony!

Wedding DVD

Your videographer is discreet and can position the camera unobtrusively so that you can forget that it is there.

Sometimes the video can pick up aspects of the wedding day that photography can’t – including action, the movement of a breeze or the sound of laughter. Your Wedding DVD, recorded using the latest digital equipment, comes fully edited with titles & music.

Springkell are happy to for you to organise the wedding DVD, but if you would prefer we can sort this for you.

Kilt Hire

For a true Scottish wedding we are able to arrange kilt hire for adults and children. If you wish us to book kilt hire, we will arrange for our tailor to contact you to discuss various tartans and arrange a fitting.
