We got married at Carberry Tower, and we were so, so happy with our choice of venue.

Everyone on the staff was really lovely and helpful.

Special thanks to Jo, who really did everything in her power to help us organise our special day in the middle of the pandemic. My family is from Spain,

and Carberry let us wait to give final numbers etc., to the last minute if the restrictions lifted and more people could come.

They were also really accommodating in terms of dietary requirements. Everyone we talked to loved the food, and I even had a guest give me special thanks for this.

On top of an extensive drink menu, we really appreciated that there were plenty of interesting non-alcoholic drink options for teetotal/pregnant people & teens.

It was pouring rain during our drinks reception, but this was not a problem as the staff had contingency plans in place, and there were plenty of very interesting, fancy rooms indoors where we could have our guests.

Carberry Tower is an old building with tons of charm. It can sometimes feel like a maze, but it looks amazing in photos, and the kids loved exploring all the secret spots. And when the rain stopped, we were still able to enjoy the stunning garden!

The new Mr and Mrs Dobson would like to offer Carberry Tower their warmest gratitude in creating a magical day against so many odds.

Carberry has been flexible and accommodating. They understand how important a wedding is to each couple who come to them. I feel lucky and privileged to have gone

through this whole experience with each member of staff who made sure our wedding was perfect.

Our biggest thanks go to Jo, our wedding planner, who I can only describe as having the patience of a saint. Throughout lockdown and the easing of restrictions, there were many, many tears. However, Jo was there. She was Mark and my biggest cheerleader that everything would work out. She was, of course, right, even when I couldn't see it and the wedding was flawless and beautiful.

Mark and I also need to thank Lynn on the day of the wedding. She was always in the right place, at the right time and said all the perfect words. She made Mark, and I feel so special and looked after.

One of the most spectacular factors that make Carberry a perfect location for any event is how beautiful the house and grounds are. Every one of my guests was taken aback by the old worldly feel but with modern luxuries. Carberry is simply stunning.

Both Mark and I will be returning to Carberry every year on our anniversary as there's simply nowhere else we would rather be.

Many thanks to Carberry Tower

We got married at Carberry Tower on the 27th May. From the first initial email to enquire about our wedding, we knew we were in safe hands with Jo. Jo guided us through the rooms available and provided us with all the information we needed to make our day as special as possible. Nothing was ever

too much to ask. Jo kept us up to date with all the changes due to the current pandemic and made sure we were comfortable with the plans for our special day. Our day went smoothly with all our guests having a great time. The food was absolutely amazing, so delicious, and the drinks were flowing. The grounds speak for themselves. They are so unique and packed with history - a real treat for everyone. We stayed in the Strathmore Suite which was spotless and so beautiful. The view from the room looking down the drive way in the early morning is just something you have to see. Thanks to Jo and all the staff at Carberry, you were amazing and we can’t wait to come back.

The most magical day in the most magical setting. When we first booked our wedding at Carberry Tower, during Covid with all the restrictions, we never in a million years thought it could be as perfect and wonderful as it was.
The team at Carberry were amazing, so informative and they provided a

great list of suggested suppliers to get us started. They didn’t have it easy - the rules kept changing, 5 guests, 20 guests, no alcohol, alcohol - but Jo was so calm and in control. She really guided us through the changes seamlessly and we never felt overwhelmed.
The day itself was perfect. The settings at Carberry are breath-taking - we still can’t believe we had our special day in such an amazing place! The food was perfect too - all our guests had the best time!

We can’t wait to come back and stay, Carberry will always be so special to us

From the minute we visited the venue it immediately felt like a home from home and the perfect place to bring in the New Year with our friends & family. The staff are welcoming & the rooms although grand are very cosy.
What really sold it for us was the fact that each part of the day was in a

different place within the venue & this is something our guests have commended Carberry Tower on.
Upon deciding on the date we received a wedding planning package. This was invaluable to ensure that we were thinking about all of the different aspects of our day & communicating them properly with Jo (the in-house wedding planner).
We had regular meetings which felt reassuring & a real treat for us was the taster session where we got completely spoiled by the amazing staff.
We would like to thank Carberry and their team for a perfectly smooth running day. On the day itself we didn’t have to worry about a thing & the team handled everything in a completely professional yet welcoming manner. Jo had everything covered, right down to the timing of the music in the Chapel. They allowed us access beforehand to set up, but also arranged for the decoration of the wedding reception. We were a bit apprehensive as we had prepared everything ourselves & wanted it to look perfect, but we couldn’t have been happier with how everything looked, & they had added in some extra touches to the cake table that we would never have thought of ourselves which we loved.
A real bonus about the venue was having all of our closest friends and family staying overnight. Guests commented on how lovely their rooms were and the honeymoon suit was such a perfect treat to end our day.
Breakfast in the morning was buffet style & so this suited everybody's needs. The venue had left out our centre pieces on the tables which helped the wedding feel personal and special from start to finish.
We can’t thank Carberry Tower enough for providing us with the perfect Wedding Day, we'd recommend the Venue to anybody.

Carberry tower were fantastic! We had a big wedding planned and re-planned because of COVID and we decided we wanted to just get married, regardless of numbers. Carberry already had the date booked but they suspected that it would be cancelled as the couple lived abroad, so they chased them for us

to see if we could take the day. This amazing service continued throughout the planning, including making an exception to their no dogs rule so I could have my flower pup. A few potential disasters on the day were quickly sorted out by the mega helpful staff, and they went above and beyond to keep us calm and happy before the ceremony. During the ceremony, photography and meal they made sure no one was ever in need of anything.
I honestly cannot recommend Carberry Tower enough.

We had the most amazing wedding day at Carberry, all our guests could not stop raving about the location and the team, it really was the most special day. From our very first visit to have a look around the house to the day after the wedding, the team at Carberry could not have been more

accommodating, professional, helpful and thorough. They led us through planning our day with lots of advice & guidance and responded to our questions & queries really quickly. On the day itself, the team were brilliant, made us both feel really supported & special. Everything went according to plan & everyone had an absolute ball! Special thanks to Kirsty & Lynn who took such good care of us from start to finish.

We looked at over 15 Castles trying to find the quintessential Scottish Castle to host our wedding. On the last day of our search we came across Carberry Tower and when we drove the long impressive driveway, we knew instantly it was the right place for us. As soon as we walked in, we were warmly

received by the receptionist, we explained that we didn’t have an appointment and we were looking for a venue for our wedding. It was a Sunday, so we were very surprised to be able to get a full tour. Lyndsay undertook the tour of the castle and we were blown away. The rooms, the communal areas and ground are so beautiful, well preserved and ticked all boxes. We walked away knowing we had found the perfect venue to host us for the weekend. 12 months later we descended on Carberry Tower for our wedding weekend. We kicked off the Friday night with drinks in the principal rooms, an informal buffet dinner in the pavilion followed by a Ceilidh in the Rose Garden room. The food was delicious! Every detail was thought of and the night went without a hitch despite a few external suppliers causing stress i.e. kilts not showing up. However, Lyn was on hand to help and personally called the kilt hire shop to ensure we would receive them all for the following morning. We had a little twist to our wedding, we weren’t getting married and having the wedding breakfast at Carberry Tower, this did not impact the service we received. In fact, the team went out of their way to help us with organising guests to and from the secret venue. When we returned all staff were there to greet us, opened the bar and served us with a smile until the early hours. Throughout our whole experience Lyndsay, Kirsty, Lyn and the team at Carberry Tower were phenomenal! Each member of the team was dedicated to helping us have the best wedding and weekend. The only thing I wish was that we could do it all again, it really does go to fast.

We had our wedding at Carberry Tower in May, and could not fault anything about the place. It was an absolutely fantastic day!
Our wedding co-ordinator Kirsty could not have been more helpful. She was always available to answer any questions we had, and if she was not aware, then she would always

respond promptly to any queries we had.
Carberry were very accommodating to anything we wanted to do on our big day and were always willing to help.
On the week running up to the wedding, we didn't need to worry about anything as knew Carberry had everything under control. On the day itself, everything ran seamlessly. From arrival at the venue to saying goodbye to guests the staff were friendly and helpful - all our guests commented on this.
The setting is just beautiful and the different rooms available for different parts of the wedding day are lovely - it gave the day a lovely feel and we never felt like we were rushed away from anywhere.
The wedding breakfast was delicious! We were really happy with the different options we could choose from - they seemed quite different to your "typical wedding menus", but loved it all!
A wonderful day, wish we could do it again and jealous of anyone who still has a wedding at Carberry to come!

The venue and grounds are stunning and the efficiency of the staff really made a huge difference to our day. The food for the wedding breakfast was all delicious too. Our guests had an amazing time and kept telling us how great it all was. Thank you so much - we'll be back to visit again soon!

Dear Kirsty & Lyndsay,

Just a note to say thank you both so much for everything you did to make our wedding so amazing. Lyndsay, from our first visit to Carberry we knew we were in safe hands - you were so helpful and straightforward, and despite the cross-cultural complications of our wedding,

you always had a solution on hand. Kirsty, you took over seamlessly and were so friendly and reassuring in the weeks leading up to the big day, not to mention your endless patience with our last-minute changes! And on the day itself, everything went so perfectly - so many of our guests kept telling us how well-organised everything was, and how great the staff were. From the start of Sunday until the bus pulled away on Tuesday morning, everyone had an amazing time - including us! We can't imagine a better wedding than the one we had, and that's completely thanks to you two and all the staff at Carberry.
