Our Stunning Winter Wedding
We can't thank Dundonald Castle enough for giving us the wedding of our dreams. To say we had the best day would be an understatement. Nothing was a problem for them and they set the castle up exactly how we wanted it. The castle itself is a total blank canvas but we were able to borrow so many decorations and they dressed the room to perfection. Our photos look absolutely phenominal and we got so attached to all the staff. They all looked just as thrilled as our guests to see us tie the knot! I can't recommend Dundonald Castle enough. All of our friends said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Thanks so much for everything! Will make an annual visit from now on!
