PAUSE + POSTPONE

Our hearts go out to all of the couples who were hoping to tie the knot over the next few months at Gordon Castle. The launch of our new wedding venue - Tower Hall - was something we were all hugely excited about but it will have to wait until we are over the worst of this horrible pandemic. Weddings that were booked for May/ June and July will now need to be rescheduled to a later date in order to keep you, your family and our staff safe. The safety of you all is our upmost priority and that is why we have had to make this heartbreaking decision. As a country, we can stop the spread of this awful virus but we must work together - and make sacrifices - to do so.

We are in uncertain times but please remind yourselves that this is only temporary.  Do not cancel your wedding plans but work with your venue, suppliers and planners to postpone and reschedule. Weddings are the affirmation of family, friendship and love and once we've got through this on the other side, we will ALL need these celebrations more than ever before. For now, let us all pause and unite to get through this. Let us look forward to celebrating at some of the best weddings there will ever be in our lifetimes, because my goodness, are we going to party when this has passed.

Kyra, our Events Manager has contacted all of our existing bookings directly but will be working safely from home, as per government legislation, from tomorrow until Monday 30th March and can be reached on events@gleco.co.uk. After this, Kyra will be on furlough leave until further notice. Should you have any questions about rescheduling your wedding date please email us directly on factor@gleco.co.uk.
