6 Wedding Venues in Kilmarnock found
For those with Scottish roots one of the links that could make Killie of especial interest as a wedding venue is that this is the town where Scotland’s national poet – and romantic icon – Robert Burns published his first collection of poems. And for anyone who enjoys a drop of the hard stuff Kilmarnock will again have a place in their hearts, this being where Johnnie Walker began his blending career (so maybe a glass of Black Label for the toasts then?) in 1820, rather naughty as it was illegal for another 40 years! Some of the architecture – like Dean Castle – would be familiar to Burns and Walker; but like most towns Kilmarnock has developed over the centuries, and now possesses some equally striking contemporary buildings too. The town’s location made it an important market and later industrial centre, and that location is another reason couples with families and friends spread across the nation may be tempted to hold their big day here, with major routes from Dumfries, Glasgow and Edinburgh intersecting at Kilmarnock, a coaching stop in days past and to this day with hospitality facilities to welcome the weary traveller, the shopper, and of course the wedding party.
