The RAD Group, which recently purchased Seamill Hydro, unveiled its transformation of iconic Ayrshire Wedding venue Brig O’Doon earlier this summer with the launch of its new Grand Ballroom and Garden Lounge, following a £500k investment.
The RAD Group, owned by Robert and Vivien Kyle, took ownership of the hotel in October 2022 and re-imagined the hotel’s wedding facilities before utilising its in house company ‘RAD Project Management’ to undertake the renovations.
The business worked with suppliers such as Curtainwise and Woks Direct to create its vision for the hotel.
The new Grand Ballroom has been carefully designed in harmony with the venues original features and is brought to life with the addition of awe-inspiring chandeliers and ceiling features as well as updated fabrics throughout.
The new Garden Lounge Bar is now used exclusively for Weddings while The lounge bar is situated directly below the Grand Ballroom meaning guests can seamlessly make their way down for a drinks reception amidst unrivalled views of the manicured gardens and the famous Brig itself.
Robert & Vivien Kyle along with their team at RAD are happy with all the feedback so far “Our renovations at Brig o’ Doon represent a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to offering extraordinary wedding experiences throughout Scotland.
“We are delighted to provide couples with a venue which combines rich heritage and charm along with modern elegance right here in Ayrshire.
“The staff at Brig o’ Doon have played a vital role in bringing this vision to life and have provided tremendous knowledge and support to our upcoming wedding couples who all can’t wait for their special moments here – we can’t thank them enough!”
Today the group has a portfolio of nine venues throughout Scotland including Seamill Hydo – West Kilbride, Fairfield House Hotel – Ayr, Carlton Hotel Prestwick; Hetland Hall Hotel, Dumfries; Dalmeny Park Hotel, Barrhead,; Royal Hotel, Cumnock; Radstone Hotel, Larkhall and of course Brig O’Doon.
