Weddings. Your wedding marks a significant moment in your life and, as such, we understand that it not only has to be perfect in every detail, but it also has to be unique and tailored to your very specific needs

Introduction

Your wedding marks a significant moment in your life and, as such, we understand that it not only has to be perfect in every detail, but it also has to be unique and tailored to your very specific needs.

It is for this reason that, whilst we have the experience to provide you with guidelines as to what might work well, we do not present our couples and their families with a template for their event.

From your first visit to Dumfries House, initial consultation and tour of the House, your Wedding Coordinator will be a constant presence from these first moments through to the final hours of your happy event. This is important and ensures that you feel totally confident and relaxed on your big day as, by this time, you will have established a strong relationship with each other. Your coordinator will know every detail of your plan and will only ever be a few feet away from you at each significant moment of your special day. We have an extraordinary and very experienced Wedding and Hospitality Team who are well used to delivering high-end events ina discreet, highly efficient and courteous manner.

Dumfries House as a wedding venue is astonishingly versatile: be it a small intimate and discrete gathering or a full scale grand wedding, we have the accommodation and the resources to deliver a whole range of wedding styles. The one constant is the classical elegance that Dumfries House provides as a backdrop to your wedding day. From the initial approach to the classical façade and entrance to the House, to each of its elegant apartments, it cannot fail to create the atmosphere and memories that will remain with you, your family and your guests for a lifetime.

Your special occasion

The food we use, prepare and present is key to our success. We have our own highly experienced full-time staff who deliver an astonishing array of culinary wonders. There is a huge emphasis on using locally sourced produce wherever possible and a focus on using food that is seasonal. Of course, we have the luxury of having our own, large vegetable garden on site and much of the produce comes direct from there. From kitchen to table, we only aim for the highest of standards.

Our luxury, bespoke guest accommodation sits adjacent to one of the main entrances to the estate, some 500m from Dumfries House itself. Originally shown in the Adam plans as the Factor’s House, together with a series of farm buildings, a careful restoration and development programme has created a unique quadrangle of 26 en-suite, double guest bedrooms. Each room has been carefully and individually designed to echo features of Dumfries House itself. Whilst each guest room has comfortable seating included, the Lodge also has two charming, country sitting rooms and a breakfast room. The Lodge is fully licensed and offers a drinks room service.

Our experienced guides will make this an informative and enjoyable part of your event. A tour of the House would normally last anything from 45 minutes to an hour. Tours of the estate are normally undertaken by coach and would take somewhere in the region of 1.5 hours.
