Venue History: In former times the Dower House to Philiphaugh Estate, was built in 1751, not long after Covenanters and Royalists fought the bloody battle of Philiphaugh in 1645, a few yards from the now tranquil and peaceful lawns, flowers and woodlands amidst which the lovely old house lies. One of the original beams of the house is above the fireplace in the main lounge, carved with the date of the building.
Wedding Trivia: Engagement Rings The practice of giving or exchanging engagement rings began in 1477 when Roman Emperor, Maximilian I, gave Mary of Burgandy a diamond ring as an engagement present.
