If you are looking to have the care free fairy tale wedding you've always dreamed of, Guisachan House is the venue for you! My husband and I where married there on September 16, 2017 and it was the most spectacular, magical day of my entire life. Leading up to the day George was by our side ready to answer any questions and requests we had. It never felt like we where bothering him, the day of the wedding he was extremely hospitable, taking care of myself (the bride) and my entire wedding party with coffee, crepes, extra decorations we brought and needed setting up. George is one of the most genuine, kind, loving person I've ever met. He quickly became one of the family. George went to great extents to give us our perfect day, stopping near by construction while the ceremony went on, he even stopped another group from having their wedding unannounced on the property at the same time. Not once did I have to worry, not one tear was shed, just smiles, love, and the purest happiness. The decorations and set up where marvelous, George and his son made us a Pirate Ship Ice Sculpture and a Scuba Diver Ice Sculpture. Our guests could drink shots out of the snorkel of the diver...it was a HUGE hit!!! Not one complaint! The house and the gardens where the most beautiful backdrop to our classic, vintage wedding theme. The property was well taken care of, gardeners do a great job! September was a stunning time of year, Okanagan smoke had subsided, we had a late ceremony at 4p.m and the lighting was flawless - For those that don't know the golden hours for photography are sunset and sunrise... no one was squinting, the sun wasn't bothersome, and the photos taken by guests where breath-taking. We recommend burning C.D's for your event... this makes the music aspect worry free...don't have to worry if you have the right cables and cords, or a compatible USB. We burned c.d's and had NO problem! George is an incredible chef recognised around the world, everything was home made - lots ranted about his mushroom soup, ceaser salad and the salmon...oh the salmon..mmm it melted in your mouth ! He also makes the cake and ours was DELICIOUS - Tiramisu & Chocolate souffle ICE CREAM CAKE! Dinner does take a few hours but that is to be expected when it's a four course meal, this is very European...it is meant to enjoy every meal, savoir it, enjoy the company your with, embrace this for it is also an experience! My husband and I rented the entire property and house with 130 guests and our head table on the veranda, leading up to the event we where a little concerned about where the head table was placed and how our guests would feel as everyone wouldn't be able to see us directly. My concerns where squashed immediately, George has T.V's in every corner of the rooms with cameras pointed at the head table the entire time...everyone loved that. The t.v's are large enough it felt like we where right in front of everyone! (we also made the point to get up lots and visit each table...if you do this keep in mind dinner service waits for you as the wedding party is first to be served, I didn't know and they had to come looking for me to serve the main course haha opps ;) just check back into the head table frequently ) Our guests totally enjoyed themselves and not one person complained about the arrangement of the head table's...this venue is so unique, and it fit our personality's perfectly. This isn't your typical hall, it was intimate and homey, each table has a stunning view, and the house it's self has so much character...I wouldn't worry one bit about your guests and the seating arrangement! Finally George and his team where incredible! They worked so hard and always had a smile on their faces! They gave us everything we asked for and went above and beyond. After dinner we kicked it up, it turned into a party and we danced the night away. The dance floor may seem small but it actually holds alot of people not to mention the dancing poured out into the hallways. You guys.... when I write and think about my wedding day my heart explodes with love, joy and pure ecstasy! I've never felt that much love in one place in my entire life, it was beyond my wildest dreams. Brides - don't sweat the small stuff, ride the waves, be flexible and nothing can go wrong!
Thank you George and your wonderful team....you all made our wedding day the best day of my life!!!! One I will never forget and warms my heart daily.Sent on 24/10/2017

We loved having our wedding here! Georg looked after everything. The flowers were gorgeous. The food was delicious. Guests with allergies were well cared for without us collecting allergy information before. The gardens were pristine. Georg is experienced at anticipating needs before they arise. We highly recommend Guisachan House for your wedding!Sent on 23/10/2017

The Guisachan House Restaurant was an amazing place to get married. The gardens are breath-taking and provide a beautiful backdrop for pictures. There is a great room for the bride and bride's party to get ready for the day with vintage vanity's and lots of space. The food is so delicious with very generous portions. Georg and his team take care of everything, so it makes your day run so smooth. They are very accommodating, and they want to make sure your day is special. Georg provided great advice in our meetings we had with him. It was an amazing day and we are happy to have had our wedding there.Sent on 08/06/2019

Does all the work for you....just show up!
The venue is perfect and picturesque. All the food was so wonderful and the flower arrangements just amazing. Wedding was beautiful and he does all work for you. Everything is included.Sent on 20/11/2018
My only suggestion would be if you want a real reception with dancing, wedding activities, etc. Hire a dj/mc. If you just want dinner and wedding then save the expense. Bridal room to get ready in is such a nice touch.
