About Us

White Velvet Events is a wedding and events planning service that provide a full range of services for your special occasion. We offer invaluable experience and knowledge with fresh and inspirational ideas tailored to suit your individual style.

We take the hassle out of planning and make sure there is no stress for our clients so they can enjoy quality time with their guests or clients/colleagues. We also offer full catering if required from our award winning chef, Kevin MacGillivray of Velvet Cuisine. The Velvet team will pull out all the stops to make your event a memorable and magical celebration.


Let me introduce myself...


I’m Ann MacGillivray, the face behind White Velvet Events with a wealth of experience working in the wedding and events business for over 20 years before starting White Velvet Events.

I have been married to Kevin for over 30 years, who has recently set up ‘Velvet Cusine’ to run alongside White Velvet Events.

I am based in Ayrshire after years working for award winning venues across Scotland. During that time, I have built up an extensive list of outstanding suppliers and have great relationships with venues throughout Scotland.

On days when I am not assisting wedding couples with their big day or organising a special event, you will likely find me walking the many stunning beaches along the Ayrshire coast. At the end of the day, sometimes I get to enjoy a nice glass of white wine, while my loving husband cooks up a storm in the kitchen!

I set up White Velvet Events because I am passionate about planning events and everything I do is about attention to detail, providing a reassuring personal touch to ensure my clients have a memorable and magical day.

I use my knowledge and experience to help organise other special occasions, such as christenings, birthdays, retirements, graduations or anniversary parties.

Francesca and Kris

Thank you so much Ann for all your hard work this weekend for our garden party. The marquee was magical when set up and provided the perfect setting for our friend’s special birthday. So glad we took your advice and asked Kevin @Velvet Cuisine to organise the food for our event. Everything was delicious- our guests had the most fantastic evening. Thank you both again.

Carol Smith

White Velvet were a great support; right from booking our venue up to the last minute of our big day. Ann was professional, accommodating, organised and easy to work with. We had ideas and Ann helped bring them to life. Ann worked with suppliers to take the pressure off us. We were able to relax knowing that White Velvet had everything under control. We can’t thank Ann enough and would highly recommend White Velvet as they definitely made all our dreams come true.

Natalie and Stuart

Following our initial consultation with White Velvet, we could not have been happier. Ann was absolutely fantastic and so friendly, which was key as we wanted someone we could trust. Our set-up was stunning thanks to Ann, we received an amazing service with lots of wee personal touches throughout. Ann truly goes above and beyond to make your day extra special. Highly recommended and cannot thank White Velvet enough for making our day so magical.
