Your wedding at Dundas starts at 12noon, but we all know that your day has started much earlier than that!
Whether you’ve had a morning of pampering, hair teasing or even golf we look forward to welcoming you to continue your preparations. Upon check-in, you and your guests who are staying at the Castle will be shown to their rooms where they can relax and look forward to the day ahead. You and your fiancé(e) will be taken to different wings of the Castle should you wish to adhere to the tradition of not seeing each other before the ceremony.
Our team will be on hand to ensure that your final preparations go smoothly, and most importantly, enjoyably before you make your way to your ceremony location. Remember, today is to be filled with fun and laughter and we will do our best to ensure that this happens!
Your ceremony will be completely personal to you and your guests, there will be no Dundas staff, no interruptions, just you and your closest family and friends sharing this special time. You have many locations to choose from whether you’d prefer indoors or out, fairytale or classic, intimate or grand.
Now that you are officially married, we will welcome you both to your drinks reception to much applause from your guests. And this is where the fun really starts! Weather permitting, your party can spill out onto the lawns to enjoy their drinks reception, or for the colder months, the open log fires and cozy furniture will envelope your guests in a feeling of warmth and luxury.
If you’ve chosen to offer your guests canapés during the drinks reception, then they have already had a taste of the delights yet to come… the ‘wedding breakfast’ is our chefs’ time to shine! Each year Tom, our head chef, creates exciting menus that will delight any of our guests. Should you be having a Jewish or Asian wedding we can offer Kosher-style or Halal menus.
For weddings of 75 guests and under, the main hall within the house will become your dance floor and for larger numbers the Pavilion will house the continued celebrations. The fairylight ceiling and coloured LED lighting provide lighting concepts to match your theme and create the perfect atmosphere for dancing the night away.
