Weddings at Barony Castle

Few settings in Scotland offer the elegance and romance that Barony Castle does for you to enjoy your special day.

A Scottish castle with tall elegant white towers, set in acres of grounds with hills, woodlands and manicured lawns.

When you arrive as you wind up the driveway past a field of Alpacas this imposing Castle comes into view. A warm welcome awaits you at this historic venue that over the years has been renowned for its banquets and lavish events. It offers indoor and outdoor spaces including a 16th century altar, events spaces and a conservatory.

Whether it’s your reception, ceremony or both we will tailor your day to make it as individual, special and memorable as you have always dreamed.

Your Day

Your wedding morning…

A relaxing start while you are pampered and get ready for your special day. Enjoy breakfast within your room with a glass of fizz or 2 shared with your bridesmaids, family or groomsmen.

Your Ceremony…

With a selection of indoor event spaces, lawns, gazebo and even a 16th century outdoor altar you can choose where you want to say “I Do”. We understand that Scottish weather can be unreliable at times so we can work with you to ensure both indoor and outdoor options are available should you choose.

Your Drinks…

Start your celebrations with drinks on the lawn or in one of our event spaces, whether it be fizz or a cocktail of your choice, we will ensure your guests are looked after and can enjoy a canape or two while you take some memorable photographs in and around the grounds with friends and family.

Your Wedding Breakfast…

Our award winning Chef offers a selection of seasonally created menus and will work with you to design your wedding breakfast. Taking into account your personal choices he will create a delicious meal for you and your guests to enjoy.

Your Evening Reception…

Band, ceilidh, disco whatever entertainment you choose – we will ensure you have a fantastic party to round off your day. Perhaps a photo booth, magician or fireworks; we can give you plenty of ideas to help you enhance your day and make it truly memorable.

“Ashley’s organisation and helpfulness are second to none. I had a spa treatment in the room night before the wedding and the lady who took care of me was amazing.. The meal we had on the day was amazing! I would definetly recommend Barony to people looking for a wedding venue. The whole day was taken care of and run smoothly from start to finish”.
“Just to say thank you very much for helping us out together our big day. Both of us had the best day of our lives. You along with all the staff were superb. Jeanette was lovely, Steven worked his socks off , Tony is a credit to the bar, and the kitchen done fantastic. A lovely venue with lovely people. Thanks again”.
“My Husband and I got married here this month and the planning start to finish was excellent. Ashley is a credit to your team and I looked forward to every meeting with her. She also offered to get something the day before the wedding so it could be my something borrowed. The room, the alter and the Eddleston suite just added to the beauty and the magic of our special day. The food at the reception was amazing and the hog roast provided in the evening was a hit for all guests”.
“We had our wedding at Barony on 13th August with guests and the wedding party staying the full weekend and the service was fantastic! The staff were great and the rooms were lovely! Thank u all at Barony for making our wedding day the best ever! Thank u Ashley for your help and to Will and staff for a fantastic meal on the day! 200 guests would also agree you did an amazing job!”
“We have just recently had our wedding at Barony Castle and I have to say we all had a brilliant time. It is a beautiful venue, which has made for some excellend pictures. I just wanted to make a special mention to Ashley, who helped to plan our wedding along the way and was always helpful and quick to respond to any emails with queries we might have had. Also to Jeanette, who actually ran our wedding on the day. She was always there to keep us right and I think she definitely made us feel more at ease! A few of my guests also mentioned how helpful she was. Thanks again!”.
“We had the most amazing wedding here and cat thank the staff enough for making it a day of our dreams. We were here for 4 days in total and had 110 guest staying over at the hotel for our wedding day. At every opportunity the hotel went out of their way to make the whole weekend amazing, from catering for a private dinner for 40 people on Friday, to going into town to get ice lollies for the children on our wedding day… everything was perfect. Thank you lovely staff at Barony Castle! We would recommend to any bride”
“We wanted to say a huge Thank You to you and your team. We had an amazing day at Barony on 26th June, that went off without a hitch, despite the rainy Scottish weather! I am so grateful to you for understanding our vision and desire to have our ceremony down at the altar. It truly was magical and I couldn’t have imagined getting married anywhere else. You worked tirelessly all day and your customer service, organisation and attention to detail in the lead up and on the day were excellent. You really helped it all come together. Our day was truly special and Barony Castle as a setting made it magical”.
“Ashley and the team were very helpful throughout the planning process and running of the day. The hotel arranged a private area for us to have dinner the evening before the wedding. On the day itself the staff were very helpful and ensured the smooth running of the day. They kept the whole day running on time allowing us to relax and enjoy our special day. Our guests commented on the beautiful venue, great food, helpful staff and lovely rooms. We were lucky to have such beautiful weather which meant our guests were able to relax in the beautiful grounds. Our day was perfect and we can’t thank the hotel staff enough for everything they did”.
“Ashley I can’t tell you how much we appreciate the staff at the hotel they were brilliant. They set everything up between the wedding, meal and reception brilliantly and looked after every guest so well nothing was to much trouble. Thanks for your help and everyone involved to make our day as special as it was”.
“We really had an amazing day and you were all so helpful and instrumental in making that happen. We want to sincerely thank you all for your efforts. I know it can’t be easy changing the ceremony around late in the day and it’s very much appreciated. It made it the perfect day we had been hoping for – the avenue of trees was the reason we were so keen to get married at Barony castle so it was incredible to get married down there. Jeanette was wonderful and calm throughout – a fantastic presence to have around. The staff were all lovely and made sure to ask Stephen’s parents later in the evening if everything was going as they’d hoped which was great, and Jeanette checked in with me on a few occasions through the day to make sure everything was fine. All of our friends and family are still talking about how brilliant it was. ‘Magical’, ‘Fairy-tale’ and ‘stunning’ are words we never get tired of hearing! Your efforts in working with us on decor were especially appreciated and it made the day feel very personal to us and our guests. The attention to dietary requirements was hugely appreciated and we want to thank the chef and kitchen staff for the delicious food! ‘Best buffet ever at a wedding’ was said, a lot! The meal was perfect and everyone enjoyed their food immensely. (poor me couldn’t eat or drink much at all, but I really enjoyed what I did eat!)”.
