We all know that Mansfield Traquair is a bride’s dream for a wedding venue, but it can also make a stunning venue for corporate and public events as well.
On the day I visited the event managers were in the middle of setting up for an evening charity dinner and, in conjunction with their production technicians, the finishing touches to the client’s corporate specification were being made and I was very pleasantly surprised to learn of the number of extras included in the venue price.
As any event organiser knows, the venue cost is one thing, but once you start to add up the cost of the production kit your budget can be blown out of the water. With a wide range of uplighter colours, pin spots and a PA system already in-house, creation of an ambience or theme to suit is included in the pricing. With seemingly endless possibilities already in house this amounts to a huge saving and a tailored event to suit the occasion.
The venue is run by Heritage Portfolio and, as anybody who’s used them will testify, their catering is first rate. As you’d expect the caterers have a real passion for the venue and a willingness to create perfection. There’s a quiet enclosed garden area to the rear of the building for outside events or marquees, but should it decide to rain on your parade they have cleverly divided the main church to allow for receptions to take place before “revealing” the rest of the space
At this point I have to confess that I’m struggling for words. The venue is so spectacular, so breathtaking, so atmospheric that the photographs are the only thing that really do it justice.
