***Wedding Open Day***
Sunday 26th February | 12noon-4pm

Drum Castle combines medieval history, Jacobean romance and Victorian opulence to striking effect, and is within easy reach of Aberdeen. Dating from the 13th century, the castle was owned by the Irvine family for over 650 years.

A Scottish stronghold and hunting lodge, Drum is now a spectacular venue for weddings. Inside the beautifully restored Library is an elegant setting for civil, religious and humanist weddings. In addition, nestling in the grounds and surrounded by remnants of the ancient oak forest, Drum's 16th-century chapel is available for religious ceremonies.

During spring and summer, the Garden of Historic Roses is a feast for the senses with the scent of flowers from around the world. A romantic setting for alfresco weddings and photography, the walled garden also offers picturesque surroundings for drinks receptions, before guests are seated in the castle's richly appointed Dining Room.

For larger celebrations marquees can be erected in within the extensive grounds.
