Tell us about your day
Mr and Mrs Caddis, The Burns Monument Centre
"Thank you so much to all the staff at The Burns Monument Centre in Kilmarnock. We chose this venue as we wanted a simple, not over the top wedding and it was just perfect. A venue where your family and friends can be with you and just be there to celebrate you, and that's how we genuinely felt. The ceremony was great, we really enjoyed it, the staff were so helpful and understanding to my tears as bride...And then you go outside to the courtyard and what a beautiful area for photos, we luckily had a nice day and it was just amazing for our photos. So thank you Burns Monument. You made our day perfect."
Mr and Mrs Rattray, Rowallan Castle
"Huge thanks to Steven, we couldn't have wished for a better Registrar. From start of process, to the big day, Steven was very friendly and reassuring. We will treasure our memories of the lovely service forever."
Mr and Mrs Struthers, The Dumfries Arms Hotel
"We would like to thank Cathy for conducting our lovely ceremony on Saturday. Everyone was commenting on her and how lovely it was. We had the most amazing day."
Mr and Mrs Thomson, The Burns Monument Centre
"A massive big thank you to Steven who done our ceremony. He made us feel at ease and comfortable, nothing was a problem. It was a fab day and the sun stayed out for the photos. Thank you again from the new Mr and Mrs Thomson."
Mr and Mrs Bonnes, The Dumfries House
"We can’t thank Linda enough for all she did leading up to and on the day of our wedding - nothing was too much trouble for her. She took me through the ceremony over the phone and was happy to include readings from my mum and father in law. On the day, she kept us both calm and quietly directed us through the ceremony. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted."
Mr and Mrs Hepburn, The Fenwick Hotel
"Although we had only spoken to Steven on the phone a couple of times, and through emails, on the run up to the big day, we felt like he knew us. The ceremony was beautiful and everyone complimented on how lovely it was. A huge thank you to Steven, and to the East Ayrshire Registration Office for all their help. All the best!"
Mr and Mrs Venegas, Kennox House
"We wanted to send you a massive thank you. A lot of things outside our control went right for us on the day, the weather was cooperative, the light in the woods was golden and warm, and we had Steven who was so kind and accommodating of our wishes. We could hardly ask for more, and indeed are left so very thankful that you were our registrar on the day."
Mr and Mrs Pettigrew, The Dumfries Arms Hotel
"Marie was absolutely fantastic. The service was exactly what we wanted and everyone was commenting on how beautiful the service was. We had a fantastic day thanks to Marie for being a part of it."

Mr and Mrs Rafferty, The Lochside House Hotel
"Thank you so much Steven for officiating our wedding. It was perfect and we couldn't have asked for anything better, I don't think there was a dry eye in the place by the end of it. Your attention to detail to include the small extra things we wanted said (ie family members no longer with us and Joanne's engagement ring being included in the ceremony) were greatly appreciated and you're a true credit to your industry."
Mr and Mrs Malone, The Burns Monument Centre
"Perfect from start to finish can’t thank the staff and venue enough."
Mr and Mrs Raeside, The Burns Monument Centre
"Now that we have come down to earth after what can only be described as the bestest day ever, we want to thank you Heather very much for the way you calmed everyone down, the way you carried out the ceremony and for your easy going nature that made a very nervous bride feel calm. We cannot thank you enough Heather for the lovely personal ceremony, every little detail of the day was perfect."
Mr and Mrs Robb, The Fenwick Hotel

Linda guided us through the process and on the day put us both totally at ease. The venue was spectacular as was the weather. Thanks to all at East Ayrshire Registrars."
Mr and Mrs Cox, The Burns Monument Centre
"Marie could not have done more for us on our wedding day, from talking everything through with us in the weeks running up to the wedding to sending over different options for readings, she helped make our day special. We cannot thank everyone at the Burns Monument Centre enough for their organisation and putting us at ease, particularly with the COVID-19 restrictions in place, we are so grateful that we were able to have the perfect wedding with our closest family and friends."
Mr and Mrs Fleming, The Burns Monument Centre
"We booked the Burns Monument Centre for our lockdown wedding after our first venue fell through. It was all a bit last minute but all the staff were so helpful. Steven performed the most beautiful ceremony for us making it very special and funny. It was everything we could have hoped for. He really went above and beyond to make sure it was perfect for us - even letting our wee dog walk my wife down the aisle. Thanks very much."
Mr and Mrs Shaw, The Burns Monument Centre
"Having a lockdown tier 3 wedding was never our plan, however, the thought and specialness that Linda put into place for us so that it was just as magical will never be forgotten. Linda was with us every step of the way planning and organising our day making sure we were 100% kept up to date with all information protocols and updated safety measures. Thank you so much Linda for making our day amazing. The new Mr and Mrs Shaw appreciate all you have done for us."
Mr and Mrs Stewart, The Burns Monument Centre
"We had a lovely day. We can't thank Heather enough for making it special under the circumstances, we were made very welcome."
Mr and Mrs McKenzie, The Burns Monument Centre
"We would both like to thank Steven and everyone else who made our day as special as it could have been.

We are both glad we are now married and we can celebrate with our family and friends next year (hopefully)."
Mr and Mrs Green, The Burns Monument Centre
"We had a lovely ceremony and can't thank Steven enough for making our day so special. He is such a kind and caring person and so helpful."

Very memorable day had and so grateful that she could perform our marriage in these difficult times. Would highly recommend anybody thinking of getting married to do so at the Burns Monument Centre."
Mr and Mrs Harkins, The Burns Monument Centre
"We cannot thank Cathy enough, right from the moment we met her she made us feel so at ease, she was so nice and funny and like we had known her all our life. We were hoping she would be the one to marry us, so when she said it was her it just made our day. We had to get married outside the Burns Monument Centre because of new regulations but if we are honest we are so happy we did because it was a beautiful day. Thank you again Cathy."
Mr and Mrs Saunderson, The Burns Monument Centre
"Absolutely beautiful venue, had a lovely ceremony and the Registrar done a brilliant job. He was very polite and kind, and was willing to do anything to help make our big day special. We appreciate all of your work towards our wedding and helping us have our perfect day. Thanks so much Steven."

Mr and Mrs Goodenough, The Burns Monument Centre
"What a wonderful venue. The perfect setting for any wedding. Cathy is so professional and understanding with always a nice smile to make you relaxed. Our wedding was brilliant and my wife's friends did some of the Kikuyu chants outside of the centre to add to the warm feeling we had inside. I give a big thanks to Cathy and her team."

The ceremony was exactly the way we wanted it from our meetings - from the music to the poems and everything else, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Thanks again to Linda for making our day special."
Mr and Mrs Laird, The Burns Monument Centre
"Steven at the Burns Monument Centre was just amazing, from our first meeting he listened to exactly how we wanted our ceremony to go and he delivered. He made sure we had the music we wanted and took time to test the music prior to the day to make sure it worked. Right before the ceremony he ran through what was going to happen and really set our mind at rest as to how the ceremony would go. All our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how smoothly it ran."
Mr and Mrs Scott, The Burns Monument Centre
"Thank you for conducting our wedding on Saturday. We all had a great time."
Mr and Mrs Young, The Lochside House Hotel
“Lovely ceremony performed by Heather, very helpful on the lead up to our big day, not being a very lovey dovey type of couple Heather gave us some alternative readings that suited us better. Heather kept us right all the way through and made us feel at ease, which helped with the nerves on the day. Thank you so much.”
Mr and Mrs Murdoch, The Railway Hotel
"We can't thank Marie enough for our beautiful ceremony - it was more than we could ever had imagined. It was so personal and special. We had guests from all over the UK and abroad and every one of them commented that it was so perfect and special. I would highly recommend East Ayrshire Registrars. Thank you again."
Mr and Mrs Chivas, The Burns Monument Centre
"Catherine was our Registrar when we got married. Fantastic service from start to finish. Kept us right on what to do next and when to do it. Brilliant place to get wed. Oh and nice pictures outside in courtyard and on new bridge over the pond."
