    Incredible! Georg is the best in the business!

    The Guisachan House was the most amazing venue for our wedding! Georg and his team made us feel so welcomed and important on our big day! The food was excellent - our family is still raving about it and most importantly no one left feeling hungry!! Georg took care of every detail and made the whole planning process SO stress-free! From the beautiful venue, to the decor, the flowers, the food, the CAKE! and the incredible ice sculpture, we could not have asked for a more perfect day! Thank you Georg and everyone at the Guisachan House, 10/10 would highly recommend to every bride-to-be!

    We had the best time here!

    We decided to have our wedding here before covid came around and had to reschedule our wedding 3 times. Georg (the venue owner and wedding planner) worked with us through everything, was so accommodating and was just amazing.

    He puts his heart and sole into this, and tries his best to make this day special. He didn’t miss a single touch and is really a jack of all trades. They cover everything you could think of, from setting up, tearing down, flowers, food, music, and even provide a midnight snack. It’s really such an easy venue to have your wedding at :)

    His staff and family are fantastic, food is amazing, the venue is beautiful (the getting ready room for the bridal party is stunning). I just can’t say enough positive things about this venue. We had the best night ever and it was so much fun. I wouldn’t have had it any other way :)

    Guisachan House Restaurant's reply:

    This review has made our day! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughtful words both with us and the community. We are so grateful and appreciative. All the best.

    Intimate Romantic wedding

    The day was perfect despite some minor hitches. George is an awesome host. We had a tent for the rain but the weather was clear enough for an outdoor garden wedding. George and his family made sure the setting and flower arrangements were perfectly placed and beautiful. It is an intimate indoor gathering , our guests loved the food and kept commenting on how they were impressed by the venue. We were very happy to share our special day with family and friends there. I loved the garden,the history of the location, and enjoyed getting to know our host. It was personalized and we loved the comfortable chairs, linen table clothes, the personalized menu. Guests enjoyed taking home flower. The wedding bouquet for myself and my best lady was beautiful.

    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.

    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!

    Wonderful All-Inclusive Wedding Venue

    Such a beautiful, comprehensive wedding venue, from the getting ready room, ceremony, and reception locations, to the flowers, wedding cake, ice sculpture (yes, that's right!), and incredible food! As a wedding photographer, the whole heritage property is stunning, and really no need to go elsewhere, even for photos. Georg and his staff are very helpful and kind; all around, such a wonderful place to be!

    BEST wedding venue ever!

    Georg and the staff at Guisachan House was unbelievable! We had to reschedule due to COVID and Georg was very accommodating. The venue was all decorated for us and the staff were so professional and welcoming. We felt like guests at our own wedding! Everything done in one spot. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely Amazing

    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.

    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.

    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.
