The unique setting makes a wedding reception at Ardross Castle an unforgettable experience. Because we want every wedding at Ardross Castle to be your special day, we don’t offer ‘pre-packaged weddings’, we will let you create your ideal day.
The bridal party
Ardross Castle is yours for the day.
The beautifully appointed bedrooms and private suites can be made available for you to get ready – hair, make and Champagne! There is plenty of room so the bride and groom and the bridal party can get ready and prepare to meet their guests.
As your guests arrive
Ardross Castle is set in stunningly beautiful grounds.
As your guests arrive, we have ample parking. Depending on the time of year, your guests can start with drinks on the terrace or in the gardens and they can enjoy the tranquil highland setting, strolling around the formal Italian garden or a little privacy in the walled garden.
Your wedding ceremony
Your wedding ceremony can be indoors or outdoors depending on the delights of the Scottish weather.
Whether yours is a civil or religious marriage you bring along the Registrar or Celebrant of your choice. Indoors, we can hold your ceremony in The Great Hall and outdoors, we have beautiful grounds, and the formal gardens make a fabulous setting.
Your wedding breakfast
The focal point of any Reception is the wedding breakfast. You can dine and dance in the stylish surroundings of the Great Hall.
The Great Hall at Ardross Castle can cater for up to 130 guests. Tables can be laid out as round tables or in a formal arrangement with a top table. The Minstrels Gallery in the Great Hall will perfectly accommodate your DJ.
You hire the parts of The Castle and grounds that you need to make your day a spectacular success. We have ample parking and there is plenty of accommodation in the local area or Inverness for your guests. We also provide tables and chairs for your wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast.
The Castle is available ‘as is’ and you will need to bring your own caterer and bar with their cooking facilities, flatware, tableware and glassware.
Our exclusive hire weddings include accommodation for up to 41 guests for two nights, usually the night before and the night of your wedding. Subject to availability and an additional charge, the accommodation can be hired for extra nights.
