The Perfect Venue
We wanted our wedding to be fun, beautiful, relaxed, and as stress-free as possible and with this venue, that was exactly what we got! We stayed over at the castle the night before the wedding (the hire fee gives you access to the castle from Friday-Sunday!) so we had ample time to get settled in, to add our own decorations (although the venue is already stunning without any extras) and even to do a run through of walking down the aisle! On the morning of the wedding, Eliese and her team were there making sure everything ran smoothly and bringing us drinks from time to time as we were getting ready. All of the little details were taken care of and it was these that really made our day special. From the fire being lit during the ceremony, to the private snug for us to escape to just after we were married, everything was brilliant. The staff were attentive but unobtrusive and were flexible with timings - if we wanted to delay dessert or evening snacks, that was no issue. Our whole day was incredibly personal in a way that other venues simply don't offer. The menu was fabulous and we were allowed to offer our guests multiple meat and vegetarian options as long as they were ordered in advance. Complex dietary requirements (vegan, gf, low FODMAP) were catered for with ease and creativity - not a boring risotto or stuffed pepper in sight!! Also, the venue allowed BYOB with no corkage so we were able to bring whatever drinks we liked and in whatever quantity we liked which saved us and our guests an enormous amount of money! In addition, we were able to play our own music and bring board games and plastic 10-pin bowling (which was a hit with our niece). Eliese made sure that the main room was quickly rearranged into whatever setting we needed or desired - from ceremony layout to horseshoe dinner table to dance floor. The fact that we had a whole castle to ourselves was incredible and especially important as it rained on our wedding day, but the castle is so beautiful and interesting that we didn't miss going outside anyway, although the grounds are really lovely too! We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful, intimate setting for their wedding. At Plane Castle, your wedding can be as unconventional or traditional as you like - you're not forced to accept a particular set package or persuaded into buying services you don't need or want. We got ready together on our wedding morning, walked down the aisle together (piped down by the father of the bride), we danced to our own Spotify playlist, we bought daffodils from Sainsbury's and cut lavender from the garden instead of hiring a florist...you have the freedom to choose exactly how you want your wedding day to look and Eilese and her team are on hand to make it happen. We couldn't have wished for anything more.

Everything we dreamed of in a wedding venue
Truly magical experience from start to finish. The team at Plane castle could not have been more accommodating in helping/guiding us from recommending a fantastic florist & the most wonderful Melanie our humanist. This quirky, magical castle just completely lends itself for an intimate wedding. Steeped in scottish history is sure to enchant your guests, along with you being able to add your own little touches. The food was excellent & absolutely no one would have been left hungry. The huge attraction of this venue is the fact you are made to feel it is home for the weekend. No corporate stance.......it is absolutely your day! With a fantastic team making sure everything goes to plan as you want it.......a stress free experience. Every brides dream & you truly can be a princess in the castle.

We couldn’t have asked for more.
From start to finish the team and especially Eliese at Plane Castle we’re fantastic! We live locally in Larbert but all our family were travelling from England so we wanted to make sure we had accommodation for the immediate family. The castle was everything you could want and more (including a secret passage which my niece loved!) Though our wedding was in January the castle was warm and welcoming as was the team who worked during our wedding. I really can’t express in word how grateful we are to Elise and the team, they were phenomenal. Every single one of our family that stayed there fell in love with it. If you are looking to a tradition Castle with all the quirks then this is the place for you!
