With their magical history, great venues and fairytale surroundings, it’s no wonder Scottish Castle Weddings are in demand to celebrate a very special day in style.
You’ll be on cloud nine, walking down the isle in the footsteps of Kings and Queens, feeling you are part of history as you imagine the banquets, stately dinners and balls that have taken place in the great halls of these historic Scottish Castles.
You could even opt for an elaborate medieval theme affair, and invite all your closest friends and family, with all your guests in fancy dress, or if you prefer, you could settle for a more traditional wedding with a formal white dress and veil, and a Scottish piper playing.
Many celebrities have been married in our castles. Maybe they come for the seclusion and peaceful surroundings, maybe for the beautiful scenery, or perhaps they’re attracted by the history and romance associated with these magnificent buildings. Whatever the reasons, they have come here, and now you can follow and make your big day an experience that will live with you forever.
What could be better on your special day than taking in the panoramic views, and absorbing the tranquillity, the mountains and lochs, green pastures and the skirl o’ the pipes. Castle Weddings are your perfect opportunity to have the fantasy wedding day of your dreams, and Scotland and her Castles have everything you need for a day to remember for the rest of your life. And something to tell your children about?
