The Castle at Oxenfoord
Oxenfoord is a luxury Scottish castle complete with towers, turrets and its own church, situated just 12 miles from the city of Edinburgh. The Castle offers a wonderfully grand interior and fairytale backdrop for exclusive use weddings and events, all year round, managed by the award-winning Hickory.
Reached by a beautifully scenic drive culminating in a high bridge that spans rolling green fields and landscaped parkland, Oxenfoord Castle has a marvellously impressive approach. The grandeur continues inside with floor to ceiling windows, a wealth of antiques, family portraits, ornate wood carving and panelling, and intricate plaster ceilings.
If you hire Oxenfoord Castle, it is yours exclusively for the duration of your wedding or event, and wedding couples also have use of the Bridal Room on the first floor: a luxurious room with en suite bathroom, available from morning until night on the big day.
Luxury castle weddings and events can take place in any or all of the following spaces:
The Morning Room
Picture a roaring fire, huge windows and a grand piano waiting to be played: this room makes an ideal setting for a welcoming drinks reception for around 80 people.
Crimson walls, a splendid marble fireplace and full height windows on two sides, the family portraits and bookcases make The Library a sophisticated and lavish room in which to entertain guests, with plenty of space for up to 150 people to enjoy drinks and canapés.
The Drawing Room
Perhaps the pièce de résistance of the Castle – a breathtakingly bright and beautiful room which can be combined with The Library. The elaborate ceiling adorned with gold leaf is by Robert Adam and this space is used both for ceremonies and dining, with up to ten round tables of ten places, easily accommodated.
The Dining Room
Here soft green walls are hung with exquisite 18th century paintings brought back from Italy by Sir John Dalrymple following his ‘Grand Tour’. This room can be the setting of a wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast or evening buffet – the choice is yours.
The Castle has a fully fitted professional bar located outside The Dining Room with everything our Hickory bartenders require to create everything from imaginative takes on classic cocktails to pouring a range of fine whiskies or craft ales.
