Full Description
Whether you would like a religious, humanist or civil ceremony, there are a number of beautifully romantic locations at Dundas Castle where you can exchange your vows. The Great Hall within the medieval Auld Keep is the most popular location for ceremonies; the Hall with its vaulted ceiling and ancient stonework add to the atmosphere of romance. The elegant Croquet Room provides an altogether different ambience for a wedding ceremony; the impressive open fire, crystal chandelier and outlook across the sweeping lawns of the Estate make this room popular for a more intimate wedding. Outdoor wedding ceremonies are becoming increasingly popular, and with a choice of settings, there is no reason why you can’t say ‘I do’ in a beautifully serene garden location on the Dundas Estate, or in the charming Courtyard. Once the formality of the ceremony is over and the celebrations commence, whether you want an intimate candlelit feast for close family and friends in Stag Chamber, a more formal wedding breakfast in the elegant Croquet room or a larger dining celebration with dancing into the night for up to 200 people in the Pavilion, Dundas provides options to suit all. The front of the Castle is the perfect backdrop for a grand finale, with a marching Scottish pipe band and fireworks lighting up the night sky. Our expert team will guide you through the planning of your wedding, and make recommendations based on their experience, as to which suppliers would work best with you to make your dream wedding a reality. During your wedding, our skilled operations team will be discretely by your side throughout the day to ensure that each and every moment is enjoyable, seamless and to plan. Many couples take full advantage of Dundas Castle being a destination for their wedding; having 17 delightful bedrooms, a wedding is an ideal opportunity to extend the celebration over 2 or 3 nights. Dundas Castle won the Scottish Wedding Venue of the Year at the 2019 and 2018 VOWS Awards.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It is impossible for us to be able to pick our favourite wedding because they are all so unique. We do love how special our international weddings are- the mixture of cultures can create a very special day with some stunning national dress and fantastic entertainment such as Chinese Dancing Dragons!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Once you have booked your venue, book your four preferred suppliers immediately, this should include someone to marry you, a photographer, florist and band. We would also recommend booking your cake at a wedding show as they have some great discounts!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We think it is so important that someone walks the mother of the bride to her seat, this is a very special moment and shows that she has not been forgotten about.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, Breathtaking Outstanding, Unique, Exclusive.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The best photo opportunity at Dundas is having the Castle as a backdrop. This can be great just for couple shots or for a group photograph with all of your wedding guests.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have had celebrity weddings and guests before but we don't like to reveal who as we are proud that our venue is incredibly private.

What’s your favourite canapé?

All the ladies in the office love the miniature lobster mac and cheese bites, totally scrumptious!!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

We all love our food at Dundas Castle and believe it is a very important part of the wedding day. We have seen a fantastic array of evening buffets including nacho boxes, DIY hotdogs with all of the toppings and simple bacon rolls!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The most unique feature of Dundas Castle is that it is exclusively yours. The whole Castle and its immediate grounds are closed off from the public so you can relax and make yourselves at home during your stay.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are most proud of the experience that our team has, some of our wedding planners have been at Dundas for 10 years and know a lot of tips to help you achieve your perfect wedding day. Our operations team have also helped many wedding couples so you can relax and enjoy your day knowing that we will ensure the whole day will run smoothly.
