Macdonald Pittodrie House

Straight out of the pages of a romantic novel. Swoon!

Macdonald Pittodrie House is equally stunning and spectacular. Memories of its fairytale turrets and landscaped grounds will keep the magic of your special day alive for years to come. Set within 2,400 acres of ancient estate, the sweeping Aberdeenshire countryside will make you fall head over heels. We couldn’t think of anywhere more dreamy to say ‘I Do’.

Chic in the city!! Apex Waterloo Place is definitely the perfect wedding venue for the more modern, glamorous, on-trend bride-to-be. The hotel’s contemporary decor and Georgian features provide numerous opportunities for those all-important photographs – and that’s before you even take its iconic city center location into account!

Stonefield Castle

A wonderful baronial castle, sheer luxury springs to mind. Set in 60 acres of woodland on the shores of Loch Fyne, weddings at Stonefield Castle are unlike anywhere else in Scotland.

Exchange vows with your love in one of the show-stopping stately banqueting rooms or on the terrace by the waterside during those sunnier months. Built in 1837, the stunning architecture and much of its original furnishings remain in place. An opulent and splendid setting for an intimate Scottish affair.

Rufflets Country House Hotel

Family-run and full of heart. Wedding couples at Rufflets Country House have been tenderly cared for by the same family for over 60 years. Their family will look after yours on the most special day of your lives – what more could you wish for!

Your wedding journey is a top priority and the Team exceeds expectations every time with meticulous attention to detail. Why not steal a moment as newlyweds in the 10 acres of sprawling gardens? Sneak a kiss on the quaint stone bridge and relax as your photographer captures those treasured moments.

Oh and did we mention its enviable location on the outskirts of St. Andrews? The boys will be beaming from ear to ear with the opportunity to squeeze in a game of golf during the days leading up to your wedding!

Shieldaig Lodge Hotel

One of our newest venues for 2016, winter weddings at Shieldaig Lodge Hotel makes our heart skip a beat. Roaring fires, snug lounges and a traditional whiskey bar – seriously could this venue get more cute and cozy!?

Nestled within a sheltered bay among the mountains of the West Highlands of Scotland, the atmosphere is simply warm and welcoming. Larger wedding parties can celebrate in a marquee with the original 19th century origins looming in the backdrop. We think a minimalist theme, neutral colour palette and lush green foliage would suit a winter wonderland wedding at Shieldaig Lodge perfectly as you overlook the breath-taking scenery of Loch Gairloch.

Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa

Practical AND picturesque. The fabulous quayside location along Dundee’s waterfront is a sight to behold when lit up at night. The hotel’s dynamic spaces, including the Art Gallery and City Quay Suite, can hold up to 320 of your friends and family.

Your personalised catering will go down a real treat – we all know how much guests rate the food! Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa is a fabulous all-rounder for the wedding party of a lifetime!
