COVID-19 Update
As a result of the COVID-19 situation and government guidelines Raemoir House is closed for the time being. It is unknown when we will be provided with instruction to reopen but as soon as we do we will be offering Raemoir on a private basis to families looking for a celebratory get together - if anyone wants to get married on one of these occasions then why not!! Promotional prices will prevail - we will not be setting inflated prices given the expected demand for stay-at-home breaks when the restrictions are lifted. In the meantime we are happy to discuss bookings for later this year and beyond. Contact us for a "DIY quote" and a 3D Tour of Raemoir so you can see what is on offer from the comfort of your own homes. In the meantime stay safe. The Team at Raemoir

Full Description
There is one aspect of the special day for which many brides have a shared vision – the venue. Raemoir House is unique in that not only do you have exclusive use of the House and Estate. The House is provided fully staffed 24/7 who provide for all your requirements and will assist in creating a truly memorable and bespoke experience. Situated just 30 minutes from Aberdeen in the heart of rural Royal Deeside, Raemoir is a beautiful traditional Georgian house that provides the perfect backdrop for a fairytale wedding. Tucked away at the end of an extensive tree-lined drive, the first impression is one of grandeur, but step over the threshold and it feels just like home, which is exactly how owners Neil and Julie Rae encourage you to think. The House literally becomes your personal country retreat for your stay. From the wood-panelled sitting room with oversized armchairs and roaring open fire to the Oval Ballroom with its flock velvet wall coverings and sweeping views of the grounds outside, your event can be tailored to suit you and your guests. Weddings are the culmination of a lifetime of dreams and wishes rolled into one momentous event. Planning one can seem a daunting task at first, but take the time to visit to Raemoir and you may find that realising your vision is just a tree-lined drive away.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Neil Rae
At Raemoir, when planning your wedding, we encourage you to consider the house as if it were your own. Many venues have a fixed format for weddings and find it difficult to offer anything else, we want yours to be as personal as possible so we work with every bride individually to deliver your wedding, not ours!
