“Our event was carefully engineered by your event manager, Jennifer, who made the planning appear seamless. Final checks a few days before filled me with confidence that everything was in place and all of the suppliers were singing from the same hymn sheet. Jennifer entrusted Fleur as the manager for the weekend who also maintained a very high standard of professionalism and ensured our every need was met.'”
“The whole weekend was just a dream come true and we have received so many thank you cards from our guests saying it was a weekend like no other they had ever experienced and one they shall treasure for the rest of their lives. All of this was made possible by the truly professional team at Dundas, working their hardest to make sure each and every one of us felt special and looked after.”
The difference with Dundas Castle is not only the venue but the staff; they are professional, attentive and discreet. They are always there to help you but also just enough in the background to not impose on you or your event. In summary, the test of a great event is not only the venue but the staff and the big question "would you use us again"? With Dundas Castle, there would most definitely be a resounding YES!
The brief included providing gluten free food for our Chairman and I was delighted when it was suggested that the entire event would be ‘gluten free’ which impressed our Chairman immensely. The food was excellent and the staff were outstanding in their level of service, courtesy and helpfulness. Our event manager was extremely diligent with the detail and responded to any query promptly and effectively. It is a glorious venue in a beautiful setting and I only wish we had more opportunities to use Dundas Castle as it ticks every box for Genius Foods.
From the moment we visited Dundas when looking for wedding venues we felt the warmth of this beautiful castle, and truly felt in incredibly good hands. Everything was organised perfectly and the day ran without a hitch. Everyone there managed the day with incredible professionalism but also a friendly smile and a supporting hand- they really made us feel party of the family there and that we were welcome into a special home. We would recommend Dundas Castle to anyone looking to have their wedding in a Scottish Castle!
Our wedding was the most amazing day ever. The castle is absolutely stunning and guests couldn't believe how perfect the venue was. Our wedding coordinators were excellent on the day and made it all run like a dream. We couldn't recommend this venue enough for a classy dream wedding.
Words cannot describe how absolutely incredible this venue is, but just as importantly how friendly and helpful the staff are. My husband and I had our wedding at Dundas Castle and it was magical. The team did everything in their power to ensure the day was as perfect as it could be. The whole package is genuinely faultless.
An enormous thank you to you and your team for all your hard work in making yesterday run seamlessly. What a superb service you gave us. You have been so accommodating of all our requests throughout the organisation and on the day itself. It made the whole thing a much easier task for us knowing there was such a professional and capable team dealing with us. Thank you so very much.
The auld keep was such an amazing setting and Ash especially loved the history of it and I felt it was a very romantic setting, especially with all the candles. The whole day was seamless and the staff would do anything for us. Genevieve, in particular, was just brilliant, she made my day run so smoothly and literally anytime I needed something she was there to help. She was just amazing and really helped me to have a stress free day and looked after us so so well.
Having never seen the castle beyond internet photos and being located in the USA, we new we were taking a risk having the wedding at Dundas Castle. There was no need to worry; the event was perfect. The team blew me and our guests away with their organization skills, quick feedback, kindness, and ability to foresee potential difficulties. They truly enjoy what they do and it shows in every detail. We could not have asked for better.
The venue certainly combines the old and the new with the beautiful castle and grounds, and the flexibility the pavilion gives to staging larger events, backed by a truly professional team, excellent catering and event management.
It would be hard to pick a particular part of the day that made it so special- the Dundas team and team from Prestige are both the best in the business! I can’t fault them. We felt like royalty and part of the Dundas family from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble; Morvern and Fleur were incredible throughout the whole process and put my mind at ease. Everything ran so smoothly and it’s all thanks to their team. They had thought of everything, what stood out was; giving us 15 mins after the photos, just the two of us, with a glass of champagne and one of every canapé (that we had taken so long to choose!) was a lovely moment for us to stand at the top of the staircase and just watch our guests enjoy, before joining the party was a lovely thoughtful touch! Even putting the photograph of my grandfather back up in the pavilion was so lovely of them. My Dad had spotted this on our second visit to the castle and knew then it was a nod from his Dad that we should be celebrating the wedding at Dundas! I really can’t put into words the weekend we had, everyone commented on the food, service and the beauty of Dundas. Just wish we could do it all again!
“Last February we started looking for a venue for the Bentley Partners' meeting. We needed somewhere where we could be guaranteed first class service, but also a place which had an unusual or unique feel to it. I was unfamiliar with Dundas Castle but the enquiry process indicated that they were customer focused and the outcome was that we were able to have an extremely successful event in a venue which offered my clients an extraordinary experience.”
We cannot thank you all enough for making our weekend at the Castle so wonderful. ALL our friends have commented on the amazingly helpful, charming team who were looking after us. The catering was faultless and simply delicious. You made me feel like a Princess. Ridiculous I had to wait till I was 50 to be so spoilt! Shame I'm so happily married as it would be lovely to have a wedding at Dundas. I shall speak to Graham and ask if he's willing to re-marry me so we can book Dundas again... In the meantime, thank you all very much indeed for a hugely memorable weekend and looking after us so exceptionally. It was an enormous treat
We had friends and family travelling from afar to come to our wedding at Dundas castle, so we were anxious to make sure it was worth it for them. Everyone in attendance has told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and we know it was in large part because of our choice to have it at Dundas Castle. The beautiful setting, the wonderful staff and the warm, joyful environment that was created for us were so special! Dundas were such a support, kept everyone happy, and were so flexible with the individual touches we chose to add. What a stunning setting for an owl delivering the wedding rings, an inflatable T-rex delivering canapes and a bunch of Canadians learning how to ceilidh-dance! We had a fantastic day, and can't wait to revisit the castle to walk the grounds and say hi to the llamas sometime soon.
“Dundas castle was the perfect setting for our winter wedding. The day itself was magical and the Dundas team took care of everything from the time we arrived until the day we left. Their experience and attention to detail meant that we were in safe hands and could focus on enjoying the day. We would do everything exactly the same way again. Thank you!”
Our whole wedding weekend was magical, from the moment we arrived on Friday afternoon all the way through to waking up to a winter wonderland outside on Sunday morning. The Castle was such a spectacular venue for our special day and we had SO many comments about how wonderful both the Castle and the whole Dundas team were. We really couldn’t fault the service of your team - your friendliness and professionalism made our day that extra bit special!
