About the Vu

Literally a true labour of love

The Vu is family run with a real passion for weddings and events. We take pride in making your dream day a reality. When we first purchased the land in 2005 there was nothing except Ballencrieff reservoir, which was rectangular. We had it reshaped soon after purchase.

A dream setting

A wonderful location

We realised the setting around the reservoir would be a magical place to get married, tie the knot, exchange vows or have your wedding reception after a church or registry office wedding.

Today the Vu is also a venue for events such as birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and corporate events, and a whole host of special events.

The Oasis

The first addition, the Oasis, was completed in 2008 and we were delighted to open our doors.

The Oasis offers something truly magical for up to 200 guests (up to 280 by special arrangement) and is truly one of Scotland’s premier events venues.

It consists of two conjoined but separable buildings, both with full height windows providing panoramic views to the west over our reservoir.

The Water Lily

Following the launch of the Oasis our imaginations were firing. We thought that a venue in the middle of our reservoir would be an amazing and unique place for a wedding ceremony, or any other event, to take place.

In 2009 the Water Lily project began and was completed in 2010. The finished building was further expanded in 2015 to increase capacity.

Our Water Lily provides a spectacular and unique experience at Scotland’s premier events venue. This contemporary venue provides a stunning setting for any event.

Our accommodation

When we expanded the Water Lily we added our two spectacular Canadian log cabins which were our first fully designated on-site accommodation. These have been loved by wedding couples and guests ever since.

In 2021 we listened to our visitors that more accommodation on site would be a great addition. We built our luxury Snugs, the ultimate in glamping, to enhance the venue’s offering.

Now with The Hoose and The Cottage completed in 2023 we have seen the latest additions to the ever growing estate and we have enjoyed every minute of it.

We appreciate all our guests

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all those who have supported us throughout the years and we look forward to welcoming you all for years to come.
