Dreamy Castle Weddings in Ayrshire

Jul 22, 2015

In my dreams, I could be a Princess and that I was!
Like most girls, I believed nothing less than a Prince
Could make my dreams come true...
'Loretta Young'

For many brides, getting married in a castle satisfies a childhood dream of being a Princess and having a wonderful fairytale wedding. In Ayrshire, we are spoilt for choice with a magnificent selection of castles to choose from! Starting in South Ayrshire and making our way northwards we have:-

Glenapp Castle 
A beautiful and truly exquisite luxury wedding venue located near Ballantrae. This majestic castle is set high on a hill amidst the picturesque Ayrshire countryside with stunning views of the Isle of Arran, Mull of Kintyre and Ailsa Craig. Several wedding packages are available catering for 6+ guests to an exclusive use for the day, 40 guests. For smaller romantic weddings, the Victorian conservatory glasshouse is an absolute must - specially decorated on the day by the Glenapp Castle florist with beautiful floral arrangements in colours to complement your wedding theme and offset with white covered chairs and sashes to create a truly magical and intimate setting.

Culzean Castle
Located west of Maybole, Culzean Castle is straight out of the fairytale book! Designed by Robert Adam in the 18th century, its elegant state rooms, exquisite Georgian interiors and enchanted terraced gardens, all combine to make this an idyllic wedding venue. Indoors, the castle can cater for up to 100 guests, with luxury accommodation for up to 12 guests. Outdoors, up to 900 guests can be catered for.

Blairquhan Castle 
To be found east of Maybole, near Straiton, Blairquhan Castle was originally built in 1346 and rebuilt in 1820-1824 when the original castle was left in ruins. Blairquhan (Blair-whan) is one of the finest Regency castles in Scotland and comfortably caters for up to 90 guests in this stunningly romantic wedding venue. Voted by the Independent newspaper as one of the top 15 wedding venues in the world -awesome!!

Sorn Castle

Indoors, Sorn Castle is licensed to hold Civil Marriage ceremonies for up to 180 guests. Christian marriage services can be held in the adjoining historical village church, within a walkable distance from the Castle and gardens.

Law Castle 
In the 15th century, Law Castle was constructed as a wedding gift for Princess Mary, the eldest daughter of James II of Scotland. Steeped in history, Law Castle in North Ayrshire, provides a fabulous setting for weddings in a medieval castle.
