Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
My happiest memories of weddings at Fyvie Castle are the lovely people you meet. We spend a lot of time with couples planning their big day and really get to know them and their families. We had an intimate winter wedding at the start of this year which I just loved! The castle looked magical, and the wedding party were so happy and relaxed - everyone had a lovely day.
