Full Description
Hosting just 12 weddings a year ensures that we give you our full attention, and keeps our venue more special than anywhere else in Scotland. Murthly Castle, the Chapel of St. Anthony the Eremite, the Douglas fir woodland, and the walled garden are exclusively yours, not only on your wedding day but also during the set-up period. You have complete freedom of choice when it comes to suppliers, meaning that you can create a wedding day entirely to your taste. We can host religious, humanist and civil wedding ceremonies in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. The chapel interior often draws gasps of admiration from first-time visitors, while some couples choose to get married in our truly spectacular Douglas fir avenue. Receptions can take place in the castle or the extensive walled garden. Murthly Castle is a private family home, so there are never any other events or visitors to distract us from your wedding. Relax in the knowledge that you have plenty of time to set up for your big day, with our help and advice at hand whenever you need it.

My favourite wedding venue
Murthly Castle ticks all the boxes to make the perfect wedding venue. It helps me as a photographer get lovely pictures. With beautiful secluded grounds, a unique private chapel, a gorgeous walled garden for a marquee, easy access, versatility for different sized events, privacy but with lots of space and a host who really cares for his clients I really love being a wedding photographer at Murthly.

Incredible venue
We got married at the Chapel on Murthly Estate and could not recommend it highly enough. The Chapel is absolutely beautiful, as are all the grounds on the estate - the setting and scenery are truly breath-taking. The communication with the venue could not have been better, with quick responses to all our questions and always available to speak when needed. We felt they went the extra mile to ensure we had an amazing day. Thank you so much to Thomas and team for making our day so special.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We had a Scottish - Brazilian wedding not long ago. The couple got married in the Douglas fir woodland avenue on a beautiful summer's day, and all the Brazilian men wore kilts. The guests said it was like being at Downton Abbey!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

You don't need everything that bridal magazines tell you to get - just keep it simple and remember that the real focus of the day is the ceremony.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We had a couple who were big Lego fans, and all their table decorations were Lego representations of their favourite films!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Private, spacious, tranquil, relaxing, happy!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our wedding parties love being photographed on the double sweep of stairs in front of the castle. Couples love being photographed in the yew avenue, with the sun shining through from the side.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes, but we don't tell people who they were, as celebrities have a right to privacy at a private party.

What’s your favourite canapé?

I don't get to eat the canapés - they're for the wedding guests!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

These days, going to bed!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The chapel is without equal, as is the designed landscape with its unbelievable trees.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

It's a properly private venue, run in a very personal way. That's what attracts people to get married here.
