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!

Great wedding - even during Covid
We got married at Carberry Tower and we were so, so happy with our choice of venue.Sent on 12/07/2021
Everyone in 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 in case the restrictions lifted and more people could come.
They were also really accommodating in terms of dietary requirements (I had a guest give me special thanks for this) and in general everyone we talked to loved the food. On top of an extensive drink menu there were plenty of interesting non-alcoholic drink options for teetotal/pregnant people & teens, which we really appreciated.
During our drinks reception it was pouring rain, 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 a bit 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!

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!!
