Amazing Venue & Staff
By Julie Jones, on 25 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 19 Jul 2018
We spent 2 amazing days & nights at Dundas for my son's wedding. I was responsible for the wedding eve celebration and I was very worried about trying to plan it from the US. Hollie assisted me every step of the way with the planning and Gen saw that every detail was carried out as planned. The evening was a huge success!! We entertained 55 people, most of whom travelled from the US. We enjoyed lawn games, a whisky tasting, dinner and a highland dance demonstration. I can't tell you how thrilled I was to see everyone having a great time and many of them not wanting to leave at the end of the evening. The wedding day was perfect - even the weather! The ceremony was in the Auld Keep followed by a drinks reception in the castle and dinner & dancing in the pavilion. So many of our guests told me that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended. I think everyone was glad that they made the trip. Dundas is truly beautiful and the staff is awesome. They are like "wedding ninjas" - practically invisible most of the time, but the second you need something, someone is right there. Thank you Dundas staff for your help and your patience. It couldn't have been better!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased that your son's wedding was so perfect, it was our pleasure to help plan and run his special day. We wish Allison and Benton a lifetime of happiness together.
The most perfect wedding venue!
By Luisa & Harry, on 14 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018
Words cannot describe how much my husband and I enjoyed our wedding at Dundas Castle. We got married 7th July 2018 and the venue could not have been more perfect. From the initial visit to the wedding itself, the staff continued to impress us with their experience, professionalism and ability to make each and every guest feel at home. Morvern’s exceptional knowledge of Dundas helped us plan the perfect day and Fleur was with us on our wedding day, looking after us and keeping us right throughout the day. The venue and the grounds are absolutely beautiful, there was so much to see that out guest were spoilt for choice. Our guests could not stopping admiring the setting. We were lucky and got a glorious sunny day and had the ceremony in the courtyard which I highly recommend. After the ceremony the guests wandered the house, grounds (which as a field of llamas!), the Auld Keep before moving to the Pavilion for dinner. Dinner was amazing and there was plenty space for our 145 guests and a great dance floor for our ceilidh. Staying the night made the whole day that bit more magical. We can honestly say it was the best day of our lives and it wouldn't have been possible without the team at Dundas Castle. They made every second enjoyable and we did not have to worry about a thing. I could not recommend Dundas Castle highly enough.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review, Luisa. It was our pleasure to help you plan and manage the running of your wedding day and we are so glad that the day exceeded your expectations.
We wish you and Harry many years of happiness together!
I cannot speak highly enough of Dundas Castle
By Kerri Watt, on 12 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 25 May 2018
We can’t thank the team at Dundas for all their help and hard work to make our wedding day so special. Hollie was amazing during the planning, from us changing our ceremony location from the auld keep to the courtyard (best decision we made, so lucky with the weather) to letting us have table karaoke which all our guests loved. When the wedding came round Genevieve made us feel so relaxed and at home, she couldn’t do enough to help us no matter how big or small. The rest of the team were amazing, special thanks to Liam for our nightcap both nights we stayed. Our guests are still raving about what a beautiful setting we choose and how amazing the food was (prestige nailed it!). I can’t speak highly enough of Dundas Castle, I just wish we could do it all again!
Hi Kerri and Stu,
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you had a wonderful wedding day at Dundas, it was our pleasure to help you plan your wedding day and ensure everything ran smoothly on the day.
Best wishes from the whole team.
Our whole wedding weekend was magical
By Susie Seward, on 12 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Mar 2018
Our whole wedding weekend was magical, from the moment we arrived on Friday afternoon all the way through to waking up to a winter wonderland outside on Sunday morning. The Castle was such a spectacular venue for our special day and we had SO many comments about how wonderful both the Castle and the whole Dundas team were. We really couldn’t fault the service of your team - your friendliness and professionalism made our day that extra bit special!
My personal highlights were:
- spending the morning getting pampered with my girls in the Winter room. Such a beautifully decorated, warm and cosy room!
- The Keep. What a fantastic place to have our ceremony! So many of our guests commented on how it was the most unique wedding ceremony they’d ever been to!
- Having our own Scottish Castle for the weekend (not many people can say that!) It was so lovely to be able to have our friends and family under one roof for the whole weekend. A weekend we’ll never forget, in the most spectacular surroundings!
Thank you for your wonderful review, Susie. We are so pleased that your wedding was everything you wanted and more.
We wish you both all the very best in the future.
Our beautiful December 30th 2017 wedding
By Emma Grieve, on 12 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2017
We couldn’t have asked for a more rememberable day from start to finish. The day run so smoothly, with beautiful scenery and stunning room, it was like being in a fairy tale. All the staff were more then amazing from the planing to the actual day. The whole day was magical and I wish I could do it all again. We will definitely go back and visit this stunning castle and say hello to Sir Jack how is a true gent, and give all the girls in the office a hug.
Hello Emma and Graham,
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It really was a pleasure having you and your guests here at the castle in December. Your wedding was truly beautiful!
We miss you here at Dundas! Wishing you both all the happiness in the world.
Unforgettable winter wedding at Dundas Castle!
By Emma Scoular, on 06 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2017
From the moment we visited Dundas when looking for wedding venues we felt the warmth of this beautiful castle, and truly felt in incredibly good hands with Hollie & Genevieve who were looking after us.
It offered everything we could have wanted for a large wedding, having the reception canapes in the castle itself with the fires lit and the cake cutting by the stairs, then on to a fantastic pavillion for the wedding breakfast and dance itself.
Everything was organised perfectly and the day ran without a hitch.
The suppliers suggested were top notch and the food and service on the day was also excellent- all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed it and we had so many compliments about the venue and the food.
Everyone there managed the day with incredible professionalism but also a friendly smile and a supporting hand- they really made us feel party of the family there and that we were welcome into a special home.
We would recommend this venue and the team to anyone looking to have their wedding in a Scottish Castle! Thank You. x
Hi Emma, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review! We are so thrilled that you had such a fantastic wedding at Dundas Castle and we really appreciate all of your kind comments. Best wishes from all of the team!
Stunning Wedding Venue
By Hattie Smith, on 30 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2017
We had a winter wedding at Dundas Castle recently and the whole package is genuinely faultless. The venue is absolutely beautiful but it is the team and service which really sets it apart. The ops team are on hand every step of the way to make the planning and day as perfect as possible, and they really go the extra mile at every turn. I cannot rate this venue highly enough -my husband and I now can’t believe we ever looked anywhere else!
Hi Hattie, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this wonderful review! We are so happy that you had such a great experience at the Castle, it was such a pleasure to be part of your special day. Thank you for choosing Dundas! Best wishes from all of our team.
An amazing weekend
By Lucy MacKinven, on 28 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2017
Everything about our wedding at Dundas Castle was amazing!! First of all, the venue is simply stunning - the driveway and the grounds set the tone from the beginning, then the auld keep is the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony (even with 110 people it felt really intimate) with an amazing atmosphere, the main house (where we had a drinks reception) really shows the grandeur of the Castle but is still cosy and beautiful and the pavilion is the perfect place for the party to start! We had guests coming from all over the World and everyone said it was one of the best venues they had every been to. We stayed in the Castle for the weekend and all the bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated, each with their own unique feel and with little touches. Our stay at such a beautiful Castle was made so enjoyable by the staff. Morven, Fleur and Genevieve were amazing from start to finish helping us organise our wedding. Nothing was ever too much bother - I never heard the word 'no' once (even when my now husband asked to have the Dundas sword with him all day!) Their co-ordination and support in the run up and on the day made sure everything went smoothly and made the day stress-free for us and our family, I can't thank them enough! We were made to feel like the Castle was our home for the weekend but if we need anything they were there for us. It was a perfect venue for our wedding and I would highly recommend Dundas Castle! Wish we could do it all again!!
Hi Lucy, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this fantastic review! We are so delighted that you had such a wonderful experience, it was a pleasure to have you and Fraser spend you special day at Dundas Castle. Best wishes from all of the team here.
The Best Wedding. Ever.
By Anne, on 12 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2017
My daughter, who works all the time, sent me to scout wedding venues in Scotland. We live in the US but she attended college there and her fiancé is of Scottish heritage. I reviewed 6 venues and Dundas Castle won hands down. It is conveniently located very near the airport and Edinburgh and the Dakota Hotel is near by for putting up extra guests. Also, it was the right scale: the castle and grounds were exquisite, but not too pretentious. They were married in the romantic Auld Keep, a tower built in 1416, which was a perfect size for our 85 guests. We were able to reserve the entire estate from Friday noon to mid-afternoon on Sunday. All the vendors recommended by the wedding team were top rate: the food was excellent, the Planet flowers gorgeous, the Korda String Quartet just beautiful, the band spot on. The fireworks (that everyone managed to keep as a complete surprise from the bride and groom) and the Fife and Drum band were terrific and added a unique, joyful experience to the wedding. Above all, the staff was far more attentive, cheerful and helpful than we had a right to expect. I know they have done this hundreds of times, but we felt we were the most special wedding party ever. Thank you Dundas, for my daughter's truly magical, fairy tale wedding come true, in a most authentic way! So many guests said it was by far the best wedding they had ever attended.
Hi Anne, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this fantastic review! We are all blown away by your kind words, and so delighted to hear that you had such a special time at Dundas Castle. Very best wishes to all of you and your family from the whole team.
Perfect Day, Perfect Venue
By Lisa Williams, on 15 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Jul 2017
It's difficult to convey just how amazing the venue and staff at Dundas Castle are. From very early on in the planning process I could tell how organized and efficient Morvern and her staff were, but quite honestly I was not prepared for how truly incredible they would make our wedding. We are from the states and we were very aware of how much we were asking of our guests to travel to Scotland. While we knew having a wedding in a castle was a novelty for many, it was still hard not to think "what party could possibly justify flying across the Atlantic? Why did we do this again?" But incredibly the wedding really was spectacularly worth it. The staff were absolutely lovely, the food was unbelievable, every vendor recommended by Dundas was excellent and it was the most well-run event I've ever attended. There was so much excitement and joy the entire day and night. And it was such a wonderful experience to be able to leave both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception and head into the library late at night to share more moments with our close friends and family. Thank you Dundas for shattering all of my expectations and allowing me to say with complete honesty that it really was the best day of our lives.
Hi Lisa, wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such an amazing review. It really is so wonderful for us to hear how special your wedding day was. We will make sure all of the team see your lovely words. Very best wishes from us all at Dundas Castle.
Best Day Ever
By Emma and Jamie, on 06 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 26 May 2017
The setting is exquisite and the opportunities for photos were superb. The Dundas staff attended to every detail of our experience and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms are oldie worldly in décor but modern in appliances and comfort. Don't think you could ask for more from a wedding venue - it was stunning.
Hi Emma & Jamie, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this fantastic review. It was such a pleasure to have you at Dundas Castle for your special day, and we are so pleased to hear you had such a fantastic experience. Best wishes from us all.
No venue like it!
By Calum and Stephanie, on 30 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Jul 2016
Thank you for everything the amazing team at Dundas did for us. We were so pleased we chose this venue for our wedding day there is no way we would have got a nicer venue with better staff anywhere! We are so grateful for the special day you all gave us. The advice and interest you all paid in every aspect of our wedding was invaluable.
Location, reputation, the grounds, the staff, the service, it’s a special place. No venue like it! The staff couldn’t have done enough for us. They played a huge part in creating our special day. Alyson and Morvern were amazing! So many of our guests complimented the staff and the service. It was the best we have ever experienced at a wedding. The food was the best we have tasted at a wedding with a menu like no other. Top restaurant standards.
Recommendations were top class, callanish, Planet Flowers, Prestige, Alan and Jackie Rankine. Family and friends found the accommodation luxurious and befitting of Dundas Castle Weddings.
Hi Calum & Stephanie, thank you so much for this wonderful review! We are blown away by your amazing words, and we are so pleased you chose Dundas Castle. Best wishes from us all.
