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.
Last week we were in South Queensferry for our nieces wedding at the Castle. I can't imagine a more elegant venue for a wedding. From the rehearsal dinner the night before, to the welcome arrival pre wedding cocktails, to the wedding ceremony itself really nothing could have been more magical. The staff was so attentive, polite and efficient. The whiskey tasting was so classy ( and we don't even like whiskey!) The hors d'oeuvres were delish, the Prosecco was flowing and dinner was a delight. The castle itself is magnificent and was lavishly decorated with flowers..Just couldn't ask for a better wedding venue! Thank you Dundas staff for making Katie & Simon's wedding a dream come true fantasy for them and us!
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.
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.
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.
My husband and I knew from the very first time Liz showed us around the absolutely stunning Dundas Castle that this was the only venue we wanted to host our wedding celebrations. The whole team were so professional and welcoming, we just knew that everything would be taken care of. Morvern was so supportive throughout the planning and organising, offering us great advice and guidance, we really felt that we were in safe hands. On the day Rose was an absolute star, running everything like clockwork meaning we could just enjoy ourselves and spend time with our guests without worrying about a thing. We had the most perfect day and enjoyed every minute, we would do it all again in an instant! Thank you, Dundas Castle, for giving us memories that we will cherish forever.
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.
With our love for travel and getting engaged in London, we had envisioned our wedding in a Castle. We never anticipated it to be as magical as it was on our wedding day! We are so grateful and lucky we found Dundas Castle. Living in Los Angeles it was a bit intimidating to plan a wedding across the world. But not only were our expectations met they were exceeded by the vendors and the staff at Dundas.
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!
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.
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.
I always wondered when people say the wedding day was the best day of their – was it though? But hand on heart, I can honestly say the 22nd June 2019 WAS the best day of our lives. Dundas will always have a special place in our hearts and we are forever grateful for making our wedding day so perfect.
We got married her on the 8th of March and I couldn't recommend the venue enough! Wow wow wow! The castle is absolutely beyond stunning! And as if that wasn't enough all the staff are amazing too! I would like to say a special Thank You to Rose - absolutely amazing woman! The wedding ran with ease and you made us all feel so relaxed with your knowledge and expertise! The best part has got to be when you were crouched behind me holding my dress up in the rain so it didn't get wet for my pictures! If thats not the best customer service then I don't know what is! You can tell everyone at Dundas has great pride in their work and they made the day exceptional. Honestly I couldn't praise you all enough! Stunning! Thank you all sooooooo much for the wonderful memories
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
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.
Our wedding at Dundas was perfect from start to finish. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting to celebrate and our guests especially loved the Auld Keep all lit up with candles on a rainy August day. As special as the venue is, it is the team at Dundas who really made the difference. We couldn’t imagine this day without Genevieve, who put us at ease from our very first visit and made the wedding day flow perfectly. She was an incredible source of support and joy before and throughout the wedding day
“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!”
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.
We hired Dundas Castle for our wedding for two nights over July 4-5, 2019. Hollie was excellent with communication and details leading up to the day. Genevieve was an absolute DREAM the two days we were there and she just made sure everything was perfect. And the entire team was top notch! From the moment we stepped in to the castle they handled everything and made the day an absolute breeze. We had a dinner in the stag room the night before our wedding and it was perfect. The day of the wedding was incredible and it had a lot to do with the amazing team at Dundas! I cannot recommend them enough, thank you Dundas Castle for making our day the best day ever at your stunning venue!!!

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!
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!
Beautiful setting in the most beautiful castle. We had our wedding here and it was everything I could have dreamed of and more. Rose was exquisite and made the day run smoothly. The food was impeccable. We can't wait to come back and stay on our anniversaries
After a year of planning our perfect day, everything fell into place on July 8th 2019. The fantastic team at Dundas guided through every aspect of our wedding and its safe to say, made it so easy and stress free. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the team at Dundas took everything off our hands and nothing was too much to ask. Genevieve who managed our wedding day was absolutely amazing. She made us feel completely at home and would've gone to great lengths to ensure we had the perfect day. The castle itself is really beautifully decorated, all rooms are uniquely put together and it has a beautiful atmosphere. The Auld Keep was fantastic and a great place for our guests to explore. The candlelit Stag Chamber made the perfect place for us to toast to our future with our family and friends the day before the wedding. The food, provided by Prestige, was absolutely beautiful. Every course was so delicious! The service was second to none, we really couldn't have asked for better. Dundas is located 5mins from bars and restaurants (handy for ourselves and guests staying outside of the castle) yet the castle grounds made the wedding feel so exclusive and private. We truly had the most magical stay at Dundas Castle and it really is the most amazing venue for a Wedding. We can't wait to revisit and stay at the beautiful boathouse situated on the castle grounds. Overall, such an Amazing place!
Had the most incredible wedding at Dundas Castle last week. Molly who was in charge of coordinating the day was absolutely amazing and the whole team were on top of everything which meant I could just sit back and enjoy the day knowing that everything was under control. Nothing was too much hassle and everything ran like clockwork. The venue is the most beautiful venue anyone could ask for, our guests were so impressed. The auld keep is beautiful for ceremonies and the whole castle has so much to offer such as photos on the roof overlooking the bridges! Hollie liaised with me throughout the run up to the wedding helping put the itinerary together and being in touch with all our suppliers. I cannot thank the whole Dundas team enough and just absolutely love the venue and what it has to offer. Can not recommend it highly enough.
Celebrating our wedding at Dundas Castle was the experience of our dreams. As soon as our guests stepped onto the property, we were all whisked away to an alternate moment in time. Each moment of the weekend, from our Friday night rehearsal dinner, welcome party and whisky tasting, to the wedding ceremony, dinner and firework display, truly had us in awe. Pronouncing our love for each other in the Auld Keep was a spectacular moment we will keep in our hearts forever. Each and every staff member at Dundas Castle worked above and beyond with us, for almost two years, to create our beautiful story. All of our guests were treated like royalty, and I know our two tiny flower girls lived the weekend as true princesses! We will never forget the flawless hospitality of the Dundas Castle team, and will live on the magical memories for the rest of our lives!
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!
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.
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.
My daughter got married at Dundas last Saturday and from the moment we arrived till the moment we left, the experience was absolutely wonderful. The wedding day ran completely without hitch thanks to Rose and her team. We had guests staying from Friday and the castle was very much our home from home - a place for us all to prepare and relax before the wedding day. Stunning rooms, food and total professionalism at every level. Just the right amount of guidance. This a classy venue but not stuffy. The rooms are magnificent but homely and the Keep (where the ceremony was held) is unique. Thank you team Dundas.
Our wedding at Dundas Castle was perfect! The service provided by the staff at Dundas was exceptional – they really did make our wedding stress free and ensured everything ran smoothly all weekend. All of our friends and family who stayed with us at Dundas commented on how utterly brilliant and attentive the staff were – we were made to feel like royalty! From the moment we arrived at the Castle, all my pre-wedding stress left me! The Castle itself is so comfortable and relaxing, the grounds are gorgeous, and the pavilion provided us with a blank canvas which we transformed into the marquee of our dreams! We really did have the best day of our lives, with beautiful memories that will stay with us forever.
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.
