Scottish and traditional but also... unique
When Myself and Mark looked to choose our venue, we wanted something Scottish and traditional but also something we could make unique to us... We can't thank [Lauren] and the team at Dundonald Castle for all their hard work and dedication into making the biggest day of our lives a truly magical and bespoke experience in a magnificent and unique venue.

first visit to Dundonald Castle
A few weeks ago I had my first visit to Dundonald Castle which was very interesting as it was in a much more usable condition than I had imagined and extended over 3 levels. If you are interested in a small wedding then I can recommend the venue. Excellent staff co-ordinating and organising the ceremony and looking after the guests post-ceremony while the bride & groom were making use of the castle to get their photos.

beautiful castle walls backdrop and scenic views
From the first visit, we fell in love with the castle's charm and knew it'd be the perfect space for our wedding... The decorations placed by the team looked amazing and added to the castle's unique and warm atmosphere... Our concerns about restoration work in progress didn't affect anything at all. Our pictures taken within the hall and on the grounds look amazing, with the beautiful castle walls backdrop and scenic views from Dundonald hill.

Everything went of without a hitch
Our wedding coordinator at Dundonald Castle was a true star. They listened to our vision and made it a reality, creating a day that we will cherish forever. Their calm and reassuring presence throughout the planning process made everything so much easier, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience… On the day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch, and we couldn’t have been happier with the service we received. Thank you so much!

Thank you for the very kind reception my husband Hugh and I received from yourself and all of the staff at Dundonald Castle when we came to conduct the wedding of Euan **** & Emma **** . All of your team could not have been more helpful and everyone had a fantastic afternoon. The castle was stunning... the weather was beautiful, the staff extremely helpful.

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?
