Dundas Castle

"Everything about Dundas is incredible. We booked our wedding from abroad, relying on my parents to visit it before paying our deposit and confirming our choice. Their reaction was so overwhelming we couldn't possibly have chosen anywhere else. We were a little apprehensive about not having seen it before we booked, but the excitement that all of our suppliers spoke about the castle with made us feel so much better, but certainly didn't prepare us for just how perfect it is. It difficult to find the words to express our thanks to the staff at Dundas. So many of our guests commented on how amazing they were, which is not something people would normally comment on after a wedding, but is testament to the level of service offered to everyone who attended our wedding. Hollie, who helped us plan the wedding, was so warm and helpful throughout all of our communications, and responded to every email and question with the help and support we needed for every part of the wedding. While Rose, who was our operations manager for the day, went above and beyond to make sure everything ran incredibly smoothly throughout the day and that we had a wedding that exceeded our expectations. We arrived the day before the wedding and were able to host our guests for dinner that evening. As soon as we arrived, Rose and the staff took over and ensured there was nothing we needed to worry about or concern ourselves with at any point. My bridesmaids commented on how chilled I was on the morning of the wedding, but this is largely because of the absolute faith I had in Rose and her term. The catering from Prestige was also outstanding and we need to express our gratitude to Laura and the catering team for how seamlessly everything was managed for us. I honestly can't speak highly enough of everyone involved. "

Whether you would like a religious, humanist or civil ceremony, there are a number of beautifully romantic locations at Dundas Castle where you can exchange your vows. 

The Great Hall within the medieval Auld Keep is the most popular location for ceremonies; the approach up the spiral staircase creates a sense of occasion, the Hall with its vaulted ceiling and ancient stone work add to the atmosphere of romance.

The elegant Croquet Room provides an altogether different ambience for a wedding ceremony; the impressive open fire, crystal chandelier and outlook across the sweeping lawns of the Estate make this room popular for a more intimate wedding.

Outdoor wedding ceremonies are becoming increasingly popular, and with a choice of settings, there is no reason why you can’t say ‘I do’ in a beautifully serene garden location on the Dundas Estate, or in the charming Courtyard.

Once the formality of the ceremony is over and the celebrations commence, whether you want an intimate candlelit feast for close family and friends in Stag Chamber, a more formal wedding breakfast in the elegant Croquet room or a larger dining celebration with dancing into the night for up to 200 people in the Pavilion, Dundas provides options to suit.  

The front of the Castle is the perfect backdrop for a grand finale, with a marching Scottish pipe band and fireworks lighting up the night sky.

Our expert team will guide you through the planning of your wedding, and make recommendations based on their experience, as to which suppliers would work best with you to make your dream wedding a reality.

During your wedding, our skilled operations team will be discretely by your side throughout the day to ensure that each and every moment is enjoyable, seamless and to plan.

Many couples take full advantage of Dundas Castle being a destination for their wedding; having 17 delightful bedrooms, a wedding is the ideal opportunity to extend the celebration over 2 or 3 nights; time for friends and family to get to know each other better under one roof.

However long you spend at Dundas Castle, as you commence married life together, your time here will be filled with love and laughter, friends and family, each and every one making memories to treasure.
