Nestled in Dunkeld, Perthshire, you will find Cardney Steading, a barn wedding venue which exudes rural charm. Delight in the estate and farm of this picturesque setting, which is perched lochside. The cosiness of this setting is unparalleled, with each indoor nook opening out to the great outdoors, meaning lush greenery and dazzling waters are never too far away.

Facilities and Capacity

No matter if your wedding day is uncharacteristically sunny, highlighting the vibrance of the woodlands around you or raining down for good luck, Cardney Steading has many a location to suit your vision. Contemporary and versatile, The Cattle Shed has natural light bouncing around it coming from the large sliding doors. With space for 180 guests for an evening reception and 250 for dancing until dark, you can host an extravagant celebration within its walls. The Old Mill boasts stone walls and original wooden beams. With a traditional and rustic aesthetic, you and up to 120 ceremony guests will feel warmly welcomed from the moment you step inside. A waterside wedding need not be a dream unrealised when Cardney Steading has beautiful grounds right by Cardney Loch, at the foot of Craig More. Alternatively, you can feel at one with nature by meandering to the woodland clearing and saying "I do" on a secluded tree-lined lawn. The Double Barrel Bar and Courtyard is ideal for a cocktail reception in a unique setting. Your nearest and dearest can wonder at the scenery while staying covered under the glass canopy and enjoying a tipple. As the sun sets and a chill enters the air, you can snuggle down by the Fire Pit, toast marshmallows, and share stories from the beginning of your relationship until now. You will also have access to the Powder Room, a chic space to take a moment to yourself, touch up your makeup, or store gifts while your loved ones are enjoying the celebrations. After the festivities, you and your new spouse are invited to spend the night in the romantic Couples Cabin with picturesque bedroom views. The venue has two more cottages, sleeping 18 people in total, for your closest friends and family to enjoy. A small number of motorhomes, caravans, and camping tents are also permitted on the grounds.
