Full Description
Wedderburn offers the choice of a stylish Scottish castle or a rustic barn wedding venue. It is possible to use either venue on its own, or both venues together. If you choose to stay at the castle you and your guests can enjoy a relaxing exclusive-use country house experience. Castle weddings include the use of all of our magnificent reception rooms and comfortable bedrooms to enjoy with family and friends. We can host ceremonies, weddings and parties for up to 80 at the castle and up to 150 at our barn wedding space, which is just a short walk from the castle. The barns offer a more informal, rustic space that is a blank canvas for you to let your imagination run wild. You can hold a religious, humanist or civil ceremony in the courtyard at the barns or in the light, character-filled Cartshed. There are also several pretty local churches just a few miles away if you would like a church ceremony. If you would like to hold your ceremony at the barns but also use the castle during the day, the castle drawing room, gallery space and lawns are fantastic places for a drinks reception for up to 150, while your wedding photography takes place in the hall or outdoors. Dinner can then be served in the atmospheric Provender Barn, before returning to the cartshed space for a ceilidh, DJ or other entertainment. Accommodation for up to 26 people is available in the castle on either a full rental or B&B basis. This is useful if you would like to either stay for several days, or if you would like to book the barns for your wedding but also use the castle as a convenient and luxurious place to rest your head after your party. We also have space for a further 16 people in the stylish cottages and lodges around the estate. In addition, there are a number of excellent hotels and B&Bs in the local area.

Picture perfect!
We wanted to get in touch to say thank you very much for all your help and support in the run-up to and for our wedding. We had an absolutely incredible day, and our guests commented throughout the day about how beautiful the venue is. Our weather wasn’t the best, but our photographers still managed to find some picture-perfect spots around the grounds! We’ll be sure to send you some shots when they come through. Thank you again, we really had the most incredible day!

I just wish we could do it all again!
Thank you so very much for all your help in ensuring that the 3 days were such a success. We loved the Castle and it suited us perfectly from the large domestic kitchen for informal Thursday supper to the elegant ballroom and dining room and warm, cosy drawing room to the enormous bedrooms & bathtub (with a seemingly endless supply of hot water - bliss!). Aside from that, the organisation and attention to detail were spot on. I felt very comfortable through our phone conversations and emails that this would be the case but it was exemplified by the phone call on Thursday checking about the pizzas in the Tesco delivery - so thoughtful. The staff were all so friendly and there was a lot of “behind-the-scenes” organisation that I know must have gone on only because I know I didn’t have to worry about things e.g. people being shown to their rooms, a copy of the marriage schedule being presented to us straight after the ceremony etc. No task was too big or too small. I know what a lot of organisation and briefing must have gone in on your side for things to have gone so smoothly which is very much appreciated. I just wish we could do it all again!
