One of the great Mansion Houses of Scotland, Carberry Tower Mansion House and Estate is a place of intimate grandeur. And to marry here, is to weave your very own love story into a magnificent history that goes back to 1480 when the first foundation stone was laid.
Established over a period in excess of 500 years, Carberry Tower stands regally within 35 acres of its own private Estate parkland - just 7 miles from Edinburgh. With magnificent tree-lined driveways, sweeping lawns, landscaped ponds and meandering walkways, it's no wonder it is considered to be one of the most romantic places to get married in Scotland.
The private Chapel within the Estate grounds has capacity to seat 150 guests and makes a perfect setting for your Wedding ceremony. And with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the walled garden, the bright and inviting interior can also be decorated to whatever extent your imagination takes you.
The Champagne Terrace was a stunning gift from the late Queen Mother to her sister who used to live here and epitomises the grandeur and elegance of outdoor socialising in the true spirit of a truly grand garden party.
The Banqueting Pavilion at Carberry Tower has the capacity to seat 150 guests for a lavish wedding feast and the stunning chandeliers and views onto the Estate gardens all come together to create a beautiful and unique backdrop to the most spectacular day of your life.
After all the feasting and merriment, speeches and Champagne, the time has come to dance into the night and give thanks for a truly fabulous day! And the Rose Garden Rooms with capacity for 180 guests is the ideal part of the Mansion House for evening guests to come and join the celebrations. A delicious supper buffet can also be served in this area and there is plenty of room for dancing and a ceilidh band too!

Thank you so much to Kirsty and all the staff at Carberry Tower for helping to create our perfect wedding day for us. All of the staff were fantastic - so friendly, professional and helpful. Kirsty was excellent and really helped to take all the stress out of the day so we could just enjoy it all. 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!Sent on 05/10/2019

Carberry Tower Wedding
Dear Kirsty & Lyndsay,Sent on 18/08/2019
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. We hope the ringing in people's ears from all the extremely loud Greeks has died down and that peace has returned to East Lothian!!

Wonderful Wedding at Carberry!
My husband and I got married at Carberry Tower in March 2019. I would thoroughly recommend Carberry Tower if you are looking for a wedding venue in Scotland with beautiful grounds, friendly staff to help navigate the planning process, amazing food and a bit of a blank canvas to shape the venue to your design vision!Sent on 14/06/2019
We really liked the venue as you have exclusive use of the grounds and are never in the same room twice throughout the day. We had our ceremony in the chapel, drinks reception in the drawing room, wedding meal in the marquee and dancing/evening reception in the rose garden rooms.
The wedding events team (especially Lyndsay) were a pleasure to work with during the planning process. They would respond quickly and were happy to make recommendations and suggestions. Every detail of the day was considered as part of their planning and they were flexible with any requests which we had including some small last minute adjustments. I stayed at the venue the night before the wedding and from the moment we arrived until we checked out the day after the wedding, all of the staff were so helpful and friendly.
We were also really impressed by the quality of the food. We received lots of feedback from our guests that the food was amazing. Thoroughly recommend to anyone considering Carberry!
