guests, it has beautiful flower arrangements, CD system,

permanent ceiling fairy lights, a separate entrance for the

bridal party, a dressing room for the bride with an amazing

Hollywood-style mirror with lights all round it and there is

also ample free parking for guests. After the ceremony, the

hard landscaped areas at the rear of the building overlooking

the River Clyde provide a beautiful backdrop for photographs.

The two original wrought iron Boys and Girls entrance arches

have been erected within this area which have provided many

couples with fun and quirky photograph opportunities.

Helensburgh caters very well for its residents and visitors,

with a large variety of shops, restaurants, coffee shops, a

swimming pool, bowling greens, tennis courts and golf

courses. There are a number of centrally located hotels and

guest houses. The well maintained grounds of Hermitage Park

provide a beautiful backdrop for wedding photographs.

The park is close to the town’s Victoria Halls, which opened

in 1887 in celebration of Queen Victoria’s golden anniversary.

The building hosts many local events, concerts and displays

and is becoming a popular choice for couples wishing to hold

their wedding reception in its beautiful surroundings.

How to find the ceremony rooms: entering Helensburgh from

the top of Sinclair Street (A818), turn left at the third set of

traffic lights – the venue is on the right hand side at the first

set of traffic lights on East Clyde Street, which will take you

into the car park. Alternatively, coming from the (A814) coast

road, you will be on East Clyde Street, turn left at the first

set of traffic lights and you’ll come straight into the car park.

The town is served by regular trains to and from Glasgow as

well as rail links to Oban, Fort William and beyond.
