Set amidst 120 hectares of beautiful gardens and open woodland, Castle Fraser is an idyllic romantic venue for civil, religious and humanist wedding ceremonies, just 20 minutes drive west from Aberdeen.
Dating from 1575, there is the unmistakable influence of the French châteaux on this spectacular stronghold, with its wonderful turrets, balustrades and gables, making it the perfect venue for fairy-tale weddings. Accessed by a beautiful stone spiral staircase, the Great Hall is the principal room for wedding ceremonies, dinners and evening receptions within the castle.
With its high barrel-vaulted ceiling, it is bright and spacious, enjoying natural light from three large south-facing windows. The Erard piano, which takes pride of place, can be played to welcome the bride down the aisle. Within the grounds, the secluded walled garden offers a beautiful setting for stunning photography. For larger weddings, a marquee can be erected on the East Lawn, with the castle providing a spectacular backdrop.
