Murthly Estate Full Description
**FULLY BOOKED FOR 2024** Hosting just 12 weddings a year (from March to October) 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.

Perfect
We would wholeheartedly recommend the Murthly Estate for your wedding. The estate (and chapel) is incredibly beautiful and provides the wow factor your guests will be looking for! Thomas was helpful and flexible throughout - during the planning phase, on the day itself, and cleaning up afterwards.

"Feels like a film set"
We had an incredible wedding at Murthly Estate for 120 of our friends and family. I may be slightly biased, but I think this is the best wedding venue in the UK. All of our guests spent the day saying how amazing the location was, and they weren't wrong. As you drive up the very long drive lined by incredibly tall trees, you realise this is a truly special place. With deer grazing on the side of the track and oystercatchers hopping on walls, it’s totally surrounded by nature. What you find at the end of the drive is an awe-inspiring venue that leaves you wanting to have three weddings so that you can use all the amazing settings. From the great rooms of the castle, the absolutely stunning chapel, the Douglas fir wood, and the beautiful walled garden, you are absolutely spoilt for choice. If the venue couldn't get any better, you meet Thomas, whose laid-back attitude automatically puts you at ease and makes you feel like the estate is yours for a few days. Nothing was ever too much and he was always on hand if you needed him, even lending me his sgian dubh when I left mine at home. One thing to note is that this is a totally dry hire venue, so you will have to bring in everything including the kitchen sink (especially if you’re having a marquee wedding), but that little bit of extra effort enables you to tailor the whole day to be your own. It's also important to note that although Thomas has recommended suppliers, he doesn't put you under any pressure to use them, although I would suggest seriously considering them because some of our "off piste" hires didn't work out as well as the recommended ones. Ultimately, if you want a day that everyone will remember for years to come, you should definitely have your wedding at Murthly Estate.
Response from the venue
Thank you for giving us such lovely feedback. The whole day was a joy from start to finish and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time getting to know you and your wedding party guests.

We loved it so much
We loved it so much and we can’t thank you enough for allowing us to be at Murthly for the special day. It was so special and all so perfect, in no small part thanks to your help! The photos are brilliant! We’d love to see you for a coffee when we’re up - we’ll stay in touch.

The best wedding venue
We got married at Murthly Estate in September, we had the best day of our lives. The venue is absolutely beautiful, all of our guests were blown away! Picking Murthly allowed us the freedom to design our day exactly the way we wanted. Thomas was really helpful giving us a list of suppliers and he was always contactable! He was there on the day as well if we needed anything. Having the venue for 4 days was a big bonus giving us plenty time to set up and tidy up the day after!

Millions of happy and fond memories
We have millions of happy and fond memories from the day/weekend. You were a pleasure to talk to and plan all the celebrations with. Some of our highlights: •⁠ ⁠the rehearsal dinner with the roaring fire inside the castle •⁠ ⁠the grand chapel for our ceremony •⁠ ⁠the long walk for Flora to the aisle with the bagpiper leading them •⁠ ⁠the beautiful drive into the estate, the grounds and the tall trees •⁠ ⁠the gorgeous setting for the dinner and dancing in the evening 🥹😀
