We think a Castle Wedding should be one thing. Magical. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of our top 5 Castle Wedding venues in Scotland to help you find your fairytale. From ocean views to grand Estates, there’s a Scottish castle wedding venue for every King and Queen.
1. Oxenfoord Castle
The enchanting Oxenfoord Castle, just 12 miles from Edinburgh, boasts pristine lawns for an outdoor ceremony or drinks reception. There is also the opportunity for a religious ceremony at the charming Cranstoun Church, just minutes from the Castle. The Castle itself is one of renowned architect, Robert Adam’s most magnificent designs and is set amongst idyllic parkland. Within the Castle are several stunning rooms, each with its own unique charm and colour palate, from shades of winter sage to deep crimsons.
2. Cluny Castle
This secluded Castle in Aberdeenshire is perfect for the wedding traditionalist. With elegant rooms and a Church within the Castle, you’ll start and finish your celebrations within this stunning Estate. And if you’re looking to extend your ‘big day’ into a ‘big weekend’, Cluny Castle also offers the West Wing apartment which hosts ten guests over two floors.
3. Fonab Castle
If you’re looking for a modern twist on the fairytale Castle wedding, Fonab Castle is a perfect fit. Nestled in the highlands outside of Perthshire, this stylish venue has moved away from the traditional Scottish Castle décor for a contemporary feel. With on-site spa facilities and restaurant, this Castle is for those looking to celebrate in luxury.
Situated in Glasgow’s southside, Sherbrooke Castle strikes the perfect balance of convenience and secluded romance. This beautiful Castle is also a four-star baronial hotel meaning you and your guests can settle in and make yourselves at home on your wedding-eve. The interior is also decorated to emulate both the Castle’s historical links and glamour as a wedding venue.
Another one of Robert Adam’s stunning designs, Culzean Castle, in Ayrshire, has breath-taking views across the water and over to the mountains of Arran. This incredible cliff-top location is ideal for romantic photography on the day. There is also a selection of elegant rooms for your ceremony. Also with an on-site museum and the opportunity to explore the surrounding beached and rock pools, there’s plenty of adventure to be had.
So, if you’d like the opportunity to view the stunning Oxenfoord Castle and fall in love with your Scottish castle wedding venue, get in touch with one of our dedicated planners and they’ll give you the royal treatment with an exclusive private show round!
