The Setting

Thirlestane Castle is nestled in the breathtaking Scottish Borders, just 40 minutes south of Edinburgh. It’s one of the oldest and finest inhabited castles in Scotland, where royalty and distinguished guests have been entertained since the 16th century.

The Castle’s pink sandstone turrets, dramatically decorated rooms, rustic spaces, and peaceful outdoor locations, make Thirlestane the perfect setting for your authentic castle wedding.

The Vibe

Choose from a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces including the dramatically decorated State Rooms, rustic Vaulted Cellar, Cobbled Courtyard, former Rose Garden and The Terrace, allowing you to create your dream celebration.

Stay in their uniquely designed castle suites, which sleep a total of 16 people. Each suite is tastefully decorated to a 5-star standard, with antiques and artwork from the castle’s collection adding a touch of history and elegance.

In addition, guests can stay amongst nature in the Sustainable Woodland Lodges which are set in the tranquil woodlands surrounding Thirlestane Castle. Run on renewable energy, they each have their own hot tub and can be booked out exclusively, to accommodate up to 20 guests.

You’ll receive access to their extensive list of award-winning suppliers. These are the best-of-the-best caterers, musicians, florists, wedding cake makers, photographers, car suppliers – you name it, they’ll have a contact – that will help take your special day to life.

They provide a range of furniture and props to enhance your day including, 100 wooden chairs, an easel, a PA system, the use of a piano in the drawing room, festoon lighting, fire pits, lawn games and hurricane vases with pillar candles.

There is a variety of ways to personalise your wedding and add that wow factor; from extending your stay, to helicopter landing facilities and pyrotechnic displays, the possibilities are endless. They understand that not every couple likes to be hands-on with the details, if this is the case they can connect you with a full-service wedding planner.

Thirlestane Castle’s experienced wedding coordinator will support you to turn your wedding dreams into a reality.
