GG's Yard

A guide to your wedding venue viewing

Congratulations on your engagement! Its time to plan your wedding day and start to think about arranging a wedding venue viewing. Wedding planning can be overwhelming as there are many elements to think about. We’ve put together a little guide to what you can expect at a wedding venue viewing at Laggan but also things you should think about for all viewings.

Why have a wedding venue viewing at Laggan?

Laggan offers wedding couples something unique and special. The wedding venue is GG’s Yard but we also have other parts to our business; Gather the restaurant, Graze the glass entertaining dome and our on site accommodation. It’s really important you come for a viewing so you can see where we are, see for yourself our truly beautiful setting and so you can really picture how your day could be.

Your private tour of GG’s Yard can be virtual or in-person with either Vicki (the owner) or Jackie (Head of GG’s Yard).  Please bear in mind that as our weddings are exclusive hire, it can often be quite difficult to have a weekend viewing during busy periods.  

Research The WEdding Venue

You have an idea in mind about the type of wedding you’d like to have, and the wedding venue should fit in with this. Before you visit the wedding venue, research them. Have a look through the website and their social media channels to get an idea about what they are and how they operate.

Be prepared

After you’ve been show around GG’s Yard, you’ll be invited to sit in one of our lounges to chat more about your wedding day. This is your opportunity to discuss your expectations and wishes. Are there example menus you can look at? How about drink menus? Vicki or Jackie will then run through questions that we need from you such as number of guests and if you’ll be staying with us.

Take notes and photos

Especially if you are viewing more than one venue! When you get home and it is time to compare venues, having photos and notes will help remind you of parts you really liked.


We get asked all the time if we have accommodation for the wedding party so don’t forget to think about this at your wedding venue visit. If you’re coming from a far, we recommend booking one of our Sea View Snugs ahead of your visit so that you can experience what it is like to stay in.

Key contacts

Who will be your key contact throughout the wedding planning process? At Laggan, after you have booked your day you will work with one of our wedding coordinators all the way through to the wedding day itself.

Other parts to the venue

Are there other parts to the venue that you need to see? As mentioned above, at Laggan we are not just a wedding venue. Why not have lunch at our bistro Gather before or after your venue visit? You could always take a peep inside Graze our new entertaining space made out of glass. Take a walk up the hill to the whale bones so you can really admire the view.

Final thoughts

Make sure you do book your wedding venue viewing in advance. We kindly ask that you do not turn up unannounced as it will be highly likely we won’t be able to show you around. We want to give you the full GG’s Yard experience and peering through the windows will not truly demonstrate what the venue is like or its full potential.

Let the wedding venue search commence!
