Better than we expected and we had high expectations!

Neidpath is a fantastic venue to get married at. Its quirky nature means your wedding will stand out against all others. Everyone we dealt with before, during, and after our wedding was absolutely incredible. They did everything they could to take as much of the planning away from us as they could. I could not recommend Neidpath Castle and the team highly enough for your event.

The castle is absolutely spectacular, but the real star is Sandy!

The castle itself is stunning and was absolutely perfect for our intimate wedding. It was a bonus that we were able to stay overnight in the castle. The real star of the show, however, is Sandy! She went above and beyond at every step. She was responsive, friendly, and so incredibly helpful! I highly recommend Neidpath and its crew! I only wish we could get married there again!

Our Fairytale Castle

We fell in love with Neidpath Castle as soon as we stepped in the door and who wouldn't. They have retained its historic features with the modern touches (plumbing) to make it comfortable.
We had our wedding in May 2023, the blossoms were still out and the weather was perfect.
Soon as we booked Neidpath castle, Sandy was our main contact and she was just spectacular. Sandy helped in any way she could with video calls, responding to emails at all hours and arranging visits for us and our suppliers. She had great suggestions for our wedding and let us run with our own ideas too.
What you need to know:
You arrange your own catering/bar etc. They will give you some supplier contacts but you can also use your own if they sign their contract.
Maximum numbers are around 94. This is a tight fit for dinner.
They have flower and candle packages you can use but not pressure to use.
You get 2 nights stay in the castle and cottage next door
Lots of stairs... just be aware
Plenty plug sockets etc for bands, DJs
Fully functioning kitchen

All you need to know is, if you are considering a castle in Scotland for your special day, you need to visit Neidpath castle. Thank you Sandy and Neidpath castle for helping our fairytale come true. ❤️

An amazing venue and team!

Our wedding at Neidpath Castle was absolutely incredible! From the moment we decided to get married here, Sandy was fantastic, helping us to coordinate and plan our day. Sandy was so friendly, helpful and we felt in very safe hands during the whole planning process. The day itself went so smoothly and we were so grateful to Sandy and Innes for looking after us!

Neidpath as a venue is just stunning. Our guests loved it and it was an incredibly special place to get married. Thank you!

Unforgettable day

An unforgettable day in incredible surroundings. Neidpath Castle is the perfect representation of everything we love about our relationship - full of stories, warm, and fun. Our wedding, however, would have been impossible without the professional and tireless support provided by the team at Neidpath. Sandy and Val were open to all our suggestions about how to customise the castle - no matter how weird! Their hard work, experience, and wonderful attitudes helped the day go perfectly. Can't recommend highly enough!

Everything was just perfect, even the weather

For the majority of the guests it was their first to Neidpath and they all commented on how magnificent a venue it was. Most people had thought it was a ruin and were surprised when they stepped inside and were able to explore it. Many of them also said how lucky Gillian and David were to be spending the night there. It is now on the wish list of my son's girlfriend to spend a night there when they next visit from Texas.

Thank you once again for making it a day to remember for everyone.
