LOVE is in the air at a Peeblesshire hotel as it prepares to host three wedding showcases.

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, the Cardrona Hotel, Golf and Spa near Peebles is hoping it will be love at first sight for couples viewing the hotel as a potential venue for their special day.

And to make sure couples "experience the magic" of the venue, the hotel is hosting three wedding showcases where visitors can tour the venue, view different room setups, and meet with the hotel's wedding experts to discuss a range of possibilities for the big day.

The showcases will be held on February 19 and 26, and March 12, all from 12-4pm.

On selected showcase days local vendors and suppliers will attend to help make planning easier – including florists, wedding cake makers and entertainers.

Emma Benson, weddings marketing manager for Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, said: “Our specialist wedding coordinators can support couples on every step of their wedding journey from venue hire, catering and entertainment to personal touches.

"With years of experience, they have delivered on many traditional or more unique requests for couples, but it all begins with finding the venue to tie the knot.

“Our open days are the ideal opportunity to ask those burning questions to the experts and truly visualise the set-up from day to night as the perfect backdrop of your wedding.”

Ceremonies and receptions can be held in the hotel's impressive Manderston Suite which can host up to 200 people.

The venue offers a range of wedding packages, and only hosts one wedding per day, allowing couples to be the sole focus on their special day.

The hotel advises booking in for one of its showcases in advance to avoid disappointment.
