A flurry of snow for a festive wedding is the ultimate fantasy but, as always with the weather, don’t bank on Mother Nature doing you a favour. Today, we may be shivering in the crisp, frosty cold but tomorrow, we’ll most likely be back to the same dreich conditions we’re usually accustomed to.
Take matters into your own hands and head to Dundas Castle to get hitched, where the white stuff is guaranteed. How exactly? The five-star, exclusive-use venue has its own professional snow machine. As part of its new winter wedding package for November to February dates, you’ll enjoy the services of a Reel Time Events piper, a sparkling glass of wine for each guest, and, of course, snow on demand.
“My wife and I love having couples share our home for their big day,” says Sir Jack Stewart-Clark, who owns Dundas. “We are thrilled to offer this wonderful package at a time of year when the true romance of the castle shines through. It looks absolutely stunning under a layer of snow – real or otherwise –and there’s nothing better than a celebratory drink by a roaring log fire on a crisp winter’s evening.” A white wedding? Snow bother!
