Full Description
Established over a period in excess of 500 years, Carberry Tower stands regally within 35 acres of its own private Estate parkland - just 7 miles from Edinburgh. With magnificent tree-lined driveways, sweeping lawns, landscaped ponds and meandering walkways, it's no wonder it is considered to be one of the most romantic places to get married in Scotland. The private Chapel within the Estate grounds has capacity to seat 150 guests and makes a perfect setting for your Wedding ceremony. And with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the walled garden, the bright and inviting interior can also be decorated to whatever extent your imagination takes you. The Champagne Terrace was a stunning gift from the late Queen Mother to her sister who used to live here and epitomises the grandeur and elegance of outdoor socialising in the true spirit of a truly grand garden party. The Banqueting Pavilion at Carberry Tower has the capacity to seat 150 guests for a lavish wedding feast and the stunning chandeliers and views onto the Estate gardens all come together to create a beautiful and unique backdrop to the most spectacular day of your life. After all the feasting and merriment, speeches and Champagne, the time has come to dance into the night and give thanks for a truly fabulous day! And the Rose Garden Rooms with capacity for 180 guests is the ideal part of the Mansion House for evening guests to come and join the celebrations. A delicious supper buffet can also be served in this area and there is plenty of room for dancing and a ceilidh band too!

Thank you so much for such a perfect day!
Right from the beginning everyone at Carberry Tower was very helpful. As we began our search for a wedding venue during covid it was a little difficult however the team at Carberry were great, sending us a video and talking us through it at home. Once restrictions were lifted and we were able to look around in person we absolutely fell in love with the venue. Isabella was our contact and she was brilliant! Every question and query we had was dealt with. When we had our taster meal for picking our food choices, the service was excellent and it felt really special as we had it privately upstairs. The run up to the day again every question we had Isabella was there to help and our meetings were great, definitely helped calm my stress levels! On the day everything was perfect, from when David arrived first thing on the wedding day to the following morning at breakfast, everything was impeccable. We had so many compliments from our guests on the food and the service. The food was absolutely delicious! We were taken care of the whole day by everyone at Carberry Tower! So to Isabella, Peter and the rest of the team at Carberry, thank you so much for such a perfect day!

Thank You!
Kirsty, I just wanted to say thank you As much as the venue sells itself, it was you that really made us choose Carberry Tower. You made us feel at such ease from the first time we met with you, and I trusted you completely to make the day as amazing as it was. Thank you for putting up with my endless emails, questions and annoyingness. You are such an amazing event planner and person, and the venue is so lucky to have you. I have had endless comments on the standard of the food, the service and the staff, saying how wonderful everything was from start to finish, and how you really all went above and beyond to make it happen. A few specific shout-outs: Lyn at the front desk - honestly that woman was here there and everywhere and could not do enough. It's so nice to have a friendly, helpful face at the front desk and she could not have been more pleasant and helpful. She has always made our visits to you guys great and she really deserves a medal for her hard work. Chantelle who was at reception the day we arrived, the day before the wedding. She was great as well, she couldn't do enough to help and made everything a lot less stressful! Milena, who was helping with everything the day before, the day of the wedding and cleaning up the day after. She was great. Again couldn't do enough to help. The food was honestly out of this world. I wasn't expecting the Chefs to be able to make it as perfect as they did at the menu tasting, but I actually think it was even better on the day. Any chef who can cook 70 odd duck breasts as perfectly as every single one was, is a bloody good chef and all the guests were raving about the food. Please let them know how amazing they are also. The bedrooms and all the rooms in the venue were always immaculate as were the grounds, so shout out to the housekeeping staff and the gardeners. I could go on and on, but I just can't express how you all made the day what it was, which was truly just perfect. We can't wait to come back up to visit soon! Thank you <3 Zoe & Jonathan

The entire staff there were simply EXCELLENT
One of the reasons we picked this location (outside of its obvious beauty and history) was because of Kirsty, our wedding coordinator. We were planning a wedding virtually from the US and she made everything so easy- from customized virtual walkthroughs, very available for any questions to giving us a ton of help and recommendations on vendors and ideas on where to purchase specific party favors. She was super detailed and accommodating with all of our requests! And the day of, Carberry didn’t disappoint- the food was fantastic, our guests were all able to stay together in one location which was priceless and everything went smoothly. Kirsty and the team handled all the details and I didn’t worry about a thing! Day of, I realized my wedding dress got wrinkled traveling from the states and her staff went out and bought a steamer for me!! I can’t imagine picking a better venue or a better group of people- we felt so lucky to be able to get married at Carberry and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great boutique experience!

Amazing Day
We had our amazing wedding day 2 weeks ago at Carberry Tower. It is the perfect place to have a wedding and I cannot fault one thing. Kirsty (our wedding coordinator) helped guide us through the planning process. She made sure we had everything organised for the big day and nothing was too much trouble. She ensured everything went smooth on the day. We stayed the night before our wedding and breakfast was provided for the ladies in the music room bright and early. Lyn could not have done enough for us that morning ensuring I was aware suppliers had arrived and were guided to where they should be. The lift had unfortunately broken and was awaiting parts and she went above and beyond making sure guests who were staying and needed assistance were placed in a room closer to the ground floor. The whole team tried their best to ensure people who arrived early could get into their rooms. The day itself was perfect and went according to timings. We had a large amount of dietary requirements for our wedding and the teams managed to cater to all of them. There were so many compliments about the food from guests. Our wedding breakfast was well presented and delicious. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The evening buffet was delicious and hot. We also had many compliments about the bar manager Peter who was very friendly and helpful in the bar all night. Every member of the team at Carberry Tower were professional and made our day perfect from start to finish.

Our daughters wedding - May 28th, 2018
I cannot rate this venue, location, staff, and staff again for the most magical wedding we could ever have dreamed of this May. We live in California but born in Scotland and wanted our daughter to have a princess wedding and we could not have experienced a more spectacular event. From meeting the staff a year ago with all their great vendor connections, to making every minute of our 3 day event go seamlessly. Carberry Towers accommodated 70 of our guests from the US at the Estate with a total of 150 at the wedding, we were wined and dined throughout the weekend without one complaint. The grounds are stunning, all bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms were perfect and the organization for our events incredible. We cannot thank the Estate and their staff enough for the most beautiful, stress free wedding which we will talk about for years to come. Thank you so much Lyndsay, Lynne and Douglas, we can't wait to return!
