We love hearing from our ‘Dundas Couples’ after their big day. In fact, we still hear from couples who were married here over 10 years ago! Here are some comments that we’ve received.
I always wanted to have a fairy-tale wedding, but Dundas Castle took my dream and helped it become a reality. Our wedding day was completely perfect and ran without a hitch thanks to the staff at Dundas. It was surreal to spend the days leading up to the wedding in such an old historic space, overlooking beautiful Scottish lands. I didn’t think it would be so smooth planning an overseas fantasy wedding, but I am so grateful that the team at Dundas made the process so stress-free and manageable. I found Dundas online and we never even looked at another wedding venue. Dundas Castle was love at first sight for us, much like our own romance. I had already found my Prince Charming and now we were lucky enough to celebrate our love with the utmost perfect backdrop. Dundas Castle was the setting to our own personal love story.
Everything about Dundas is incredible. We booked our wedding from abroad, relying on my parents to visit it before paying our deposit and confirming our choice, and their reaction was so overwhelming we couldn’t possibly have chosen anywhere else! It’s difficult to find the words to express our thanks to the staff at Dundas. So many of our guests commented on how amazing they were, which is not something people would normally comment on after a wedding but is a testament to the level of service offered to everyone who attended our wedding. Hollie, who helped us plan the wedding, was so warm and helpful throughout all of our communications and responded to every email and question (even the really stupid questions) with the help and support we needed for every part of the wedding. She really made planning a wedding from abroad so easy. While Rose, who was our operations manager for the day, went above and beyond to make sure everything ran incredibly smoothly and that we had a wedding that exceeded our expectations. We arrived the day before the wedding and were able to host our guests for dinner that evening. As soon as we arrived, Rose and the staff took over and ensured there was nothing we needed to worry about or concern ourselves with at any point. My bridesmaids commented on how chilled I was on the morning of the wedding, but this is largely because of the absolute faith I had in Rose and her team.
The team at Dundas Castle was incredible and made such an amazing day even better! In particular, Fleur was always there to help us and our family with any last minute needs, which made our special day run flawlessly!
Words cannot describe how much my husband and I enjoyed our wedding at Dundas Castle. We got married 7th July 2018 and the venue could not have been more perfect. From the initial visit to the wedding itself, the staff continued to impress us with their experience, professionalism and ability to make each and every person feel at home. The venue and the grounds are absolutely beautiful, there was so much to see that our guests were spoilt for choice. We were lucky and got a glorious sunny day and had the ceremony in the courtyard which I highly recommend. After the ceremony, the guests wandered the house, grounds (which has a field of llamas!) and the Auld Keep before moving to the Pavilion for dinner. Dinner was amazing and there was plenty of space for our 145 guests and a great dance floor for our ceilidh. Staying the night made the whole day that bit more magical. We can honestly say it was the best day of our lives and it wouldn’t have been possible without the team at Dundas Castle. They made every second enjoyable and we did not have to worry about a thing. I could not recommend Dundas Castle highly enough.
From the moment Oliver & I laid eyes on Dundas Castle we knew this was the place where we had to get married! What truly made our Wedding, other than the magnificent Castle itself is without a doubt the wonderful staff! I can't speak highly enough of every member of this fantastic team we had the pleasure of meeting, they went above & beyond to give us the most perfect 2 day wedding we could've possibly hoped for! The level of professionalism, care & detail exceeded all our expectations & gave us such peace of mind to ensure we could make the most amazing memories! Thank You Dundas for giving us truly the best few days of our life!
The wonderful team at Dundas helped us have a fairytale wedding in a short time. They were helpful and accommodating. Our wedding was a phenomenal day celebrating with friends and family with a mix of old and new traditions. We were even blessed with a double rainbow for good luck and memories we will never forget.
It's difficult to convey just how amazing the venue and staff at Dundas Castle are. From very early on in the planning process I could tell how organized the staff were, but quite honestly I was not prepared for how truly incredible they would make our wedding. We are from the states and we were very aware of how much we were asking of our guests to travel to Scotland. While we knew having a wedding in a castle was a novelty for many, it was still hard not to think "what party could possibly justify flying across the Atlantic? Why did we do this again?" But incredibly the wedding really was spectacularly worth it. The staff were absolutely lovely, the food was unbelievable, every vendor recommended by Dundas was excellent and it was the most well-run event I've ever attended. There was so much excitement and joy the entire day and night. And it was such a wonderful experience to be able to leave both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception and head into the library late at night to share more moments with our close friends and family. Thank you Dundas for shattering all of my expectations and allowing me to say with complete honesty that it really was the best day of our lives.
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.
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.
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!
We were initially so reluctant to choose the Courtyard for our ceremony due to ‘Scotland’s summer’ but it paid off and the guests LOVED it. They really liked how it flowed so well into the drinks reception. I love the photograph of my sister and myself looking out of the window to see all the guests arrive and take their seats! The option for us to get more photographs taken throughout the Castle and on the roof made it extra special as we got to enjoy both aspects that would have been available if we got married inside.
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.
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.
Dundas Castle and its staff were an absolute dream come true for our wedding venue! From the second we arrived to the moment we left, we were made to feel like the entire Castle was ours. The home is beautifully renovated with historic accents and decor that makes you feel like you've been transported back in time! Their staff is warm and friendly, and will help with any details any of our family needed. The entire day was seamless and truly like a dream come true! There is no better place to get married. We literally can't think of a single thing that we would change or that could have gone any better.
Everything about our wedding was perfect! We could not have asked for a more wonderful venue and team. They exceeded every expectation and helped us to create a more beautiful day than I ever could have imagined. All of our guests were blown away by the Castle and the grounds. Dundas Castle is an absolutely picture-perfect venue – from the top of the Keep to the drawing room, every photo was stunning. The team’s professionalism, friendliness and attention to detail made the planning process so easy. They embraced all our American traditions and anticipated every need. It was truly the best day of our lives
“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!”
Dundas castle is a beautiful setting with an incredibly welcoming atmosphere. The staff maintained an unprecedented awareness of all our guest needs. We feel as if we have gained lifelong friends with the staff during our stay.
From the moment we drove up the driveway of Dundas until we left the morning after the wedding everything was magical. The staff was incredibly helpful, fun, and easy to work with. Anything we needed, they had it for us. Our guests cannot stop telling us how amazing the whole experience was and the pictures with Dundas as the backdrop are absolutely incredible. The fact that we were able to have highland games in the grounds, a beautiful rehearsal dinner in the gorgeous setting of the newer part of the Castle, a ceremony in the Auld Keep, and then a reception in the pavilion is more than any couple could ask for.
Every bride hopes for cooperation from their wedding venue, but the level of organisation and communication from the team at Dundas Castle far exceeded what I had hoped for. Colby and I truly felt that our vision for our wedding was important to the staff, and that was made evident from the moment we arrived. From our arrival to the morning we flew out, everything at Dundas was impeccable. Our stay sincerely felt like stepping into a fairy-tale. It was our dream come true.
The team at Dundas Castle did everything they could to make our wedding day a personal and unforgettable experience. We will never forget dancing alone in the drizzle with the Mariachi band or getting to see so many of our friends and family enjoy the beautiful Castle and its surroundings.
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!
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!
Getting married at the Castle was a complete fairy tale from start to finish!! From the moment I woke up in the gorgeous honeymoon suite, to mimosas with the girls, first looks on the lawn, and then walking down the aisle, I felt like a princess. The staff were more than attentive; they truly wished us the best and anticipated every need. The team at Dundas is first class- they made sure that neither Benton nor myself or even our families worried about a single thing all day. We loved celebrating at Dundas and keep finding ourselves looking for reasons to go back again soon! I think there will be a weekend at the Glampotel in our future. Every moment was wonderful. I only wished the whole thing could have lasted longer! The setting, the staff and the service were perfect! Each detail was carefully considered and executed flawlessly. We were beyond happy!
While planning the wedding both Sumner and I were in the US or in London, however this did not prove a problem for the team at Dundas. Every step of the way was organised and calm. Then came the day. It was utterly spectacular. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue. The team were wonderful. They made sure that both Sumner and I and our guests could just relax and have fun. Truly the most perfect day, we could not have wished for better.
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.
