The Vibe

Their promise to you is to experience a stunning, stress-free wedding in a gorgeous location.

Dalkeith Country Park has been owned by the Buccleuch Family for centuries and today is a beautiful, quirky and fun wedding venue. They love great design, creating joy and making people happy. And what happier occasion than your wedding day.

There are a few options for your ceremony. The historic Orangerie offers a truly unique ceremony space for an outdoor wedding. Set under the shadow of an ancient, deep-rooted willow tree, their Orangerie and accompanying lawn is the perfect blank canvas. Hire some rustic benches, listen to a string quartet or walk down the aisle to a classical guitarist – the options are there to help you create your own bespoke day.

The lawn area also provides a stunning backdrop for your drinks reception. Sip on a glass of fizz, hire a gin van, a jazz band or throw back some beers.

If the weather isn’t on your side The Loft provides a gorgeous blank canvas for your ceremony with its wooden floor, white walls and rustic beams for up to 90 guests. Or alternatively, St Mary’s Church within the park’s grounds can be contacted to host your ceremony.

For your reception and wedding breakfast, Restoration Yard’s restaurant offers a gorgeous light-filled restaurant space with stunning views across the park across the River Esk. Old sits perfectly alongside new here where exposed brickwork meets modern zinc and floor to ceiling glass windows. It’s a beautiful space where even the tables tell a story with individually, whimsically curated Buccleuch family collectables beneath the glass.

At Restoration Yard they love their food. With an in-house team you can choose from a sit-down three-course menu (capacity 90), relaxed buffet (capacity 90) or even a BBQ on the lawn. And of course, a wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without some dancing. Here they have ample space for your band and some crazy guest dancing.

If your guest list is bigger then a marquee is for you. They have suppliers they can recommend whether you’d like a traditional marquee or festival-style tent.

And not forgetting the photos… you won’t find a lovelier location. From the ancient oak woodlands to the Palace, Montagu Bridge and their courtyard, the hardest decision will be where to choose.

They have accessible parking spaces and Restoration Cafe is accessible without steps with an accessible toilet. The lawn area could prove difficult for wheelchairs if chosen for the ceremony.
