Dundas Castle Full Description
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 Hall with its vaulted ceiling and ancient stonework 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 all. 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 an ideal opportunity to extend the celebration over 2 or 3 nights. Dundas Castle won the Scottish Wedding Venue of the Year at the 2019 and 2018 VOWS Awards.

Simply the most amazing experience of our lives
Dundas Castle was simply the most amazing experience of our lives. The 2-day wedding event was simply breathtaking. The staff, the grounds, and the entire experience was magical. I had been to many castle locations in Scotland, but Dundas had everything – my guests commented over and over again that our two-day wedding at Dundas was the best event they had ever been to. Thanks for everything!

Our wedding exceeded all our expectations
Our wedding at Dundas Castle exceeded all our expectations and was truly a day we will never forget! We planned our wedding from overseas at home in Toronto, Canada. Our guests are still talking (a year later) about how beautiful, unique, and one-of-a-kind experience it was to celebrate our 2-day wedding in a Scottish castle. Dundas Castle is now a part of our love story, and we are so fortunate for the lovely memories we created there.

The Perfect Venue
As soon as we drove up to Dundas, we knew it was the venue for us. The castle and grounds are just extraordinary, with stunning views in every direction. The interior has been maintained beautifully, so that it feels traditional but fresh at the same time. The interaction with the team at Dundas was exemplary from the first time seeing the place, throughout the planning and particularly on the day itself - they went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, at ease, and to handle all our needs.

Five star venue, five start staff
My husband and I wed here in July of 2022 and it was the experience of a lifetime. Our guests are still talking about it. Everything from the castle grounds to the beautiful bedrooms, to the incredible staff made the weekend unforgettable. Mahi and Morvern were GREAT people to work with and made the whole planning experience seamless. Highly highly recommend this venue if you are exploring others in the area - it is the best by FAR!
