Describe the best wedding that happened at Dundonald Castle?
We are lucky to host beautifully bespoke weddings which makes it really hard to choose a favourite. Everyone likes to add a little something in to create the perfect atmosphere which suits the couples best.
I always enjoy the light-hearted, no stress and often hilarious ceremonies which are so reflective of the couples themselves.
In terms of decor, we love those gorgeous candle-lit backdrops with lots of rustic greenery. It really makes the castle stand out in a beautiful way in the photos.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
My number 1 tip is to put yourselves and your own vision first. So many people have great ideas and often want to help with the planning, however, to truly enjoy your day, try and stick to your own vision and wants as a couple.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
I always enjoy ceremonies that are tailored to the couple and helps them really show off how special their relationship is.
