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.
