dundas-castle-3Spring Wedding

You may choose to exchange your vows in the spring as a sea of daffodils cover the castle's 1000 acres of beautiful wood and parkland. As the new leaves adorn the trees, you too can mark the start of your new lives together as you admire the magnificent views across the estate from the top of the Auld Keep.

Summer Wedding

The estate comes alive in the summer months as the rhododendrons bloom. The 2-mile long drive is lined with a riot of colour while the manicured lawns provide the most spectacular backdrop for photographs.

Autumn Wedding

As the autumnal leaves fall and the nights draw in, there is nothing more romantic than making your way up the candle-lit fairytale winding staircase where your groom awaits to exchange vows with you. These memories will live with you and your guests forever.

Winter Wedding

Imagine sharing your first moments together as husband and wife surrounded by your closest friends and family as you warm by the crackling open fires. Surrounded by the silk walls of the Library you can enjoy a closing nights Dram of whisky.

Your Wedding Ceremony

The 15th Century Auld Keep with the original 3 feet thick walls and magnificent vaulted ceiling in the Great Hall is perfect for up to 90 of your guests for your religious or humanist wedding ceremony. If you would prefer a civil ceremony, the elegantly created Georgian Croquet Room with views across the lawns is perfect for up to 80 guests.

On the rare occasion that the Scottish weather is unkind, you will always have the option of inviting your guests back to the castle where we will have transformed your chosen location into your ceremony room.

Your Wedding Breakfast

Following your ceremony, you are able to entertain your guests with a champagne reception in the comfort of the main house. Your wedding breakfast dinner can take place in the Croquet Room for up to 60 guests or in the chandelier-lit Pavilion marquee for up to 180. With panoramic views of the estate and floodlit castle, the luxurious Pavilion is perfect for any after dinner dancing or entertainment.

Stay In Your Own Castle

Our fourteen bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms, are decorated in a timelessly elegant style featuring antique furniture, original paintings and beautiful fabrics. Rooms are located throughout the house and offer a variety of views, from the charming courtyard to the immaculate lawns of the estate.
