The charity protects some of Scotland’s natural and national treasures which provide a very special setting for wedding celebrations. To cater for current restrictions, the Trust has created new packages which offer couples the chance to tie the knot in a stunning location, great food and wines and the dedicated attention of the Trust’s expert team to ensure it all runs smoothly.
“Normally, the only tiers we need to think about at weddings are how many the cake should have, but that’s all changed,” says Rebecca Sloan at the National Trust for Scotland. “The options we’ve put together are still full of style, sophistication and sparkle and can be tailored to make a personalised day that’s full of memories.”
Trust wedding packages also come with a joint membership, so that couples can spend their first year of marriage enjoying and exploring all the beautiful places in the charity’s care.
Elopement: this lovely package is perfect for couples looking to focus on each other on their wedding day. A choice of beautiful locations, plus the ceremony, flowers and a romantic picnic are all included for £999.
Micro-wedding: available at Brodie Castle, Castle Fraser, Culzean Castle, Fyvie Castle, Mar Lodge and Pollok House, this package is for weddings of up to 20 people in 2021 and includes a three-course meal. Prices start from £3,600.
National Trust for Scotland: wedding case study
Luna and Dean recently married at Pollok House in Glasgow. They tell us about their experience
“The often laborious task of choosing a wedding venue was made so much easier when we laid eyes on Pollok House. The location, the building and interiors really are beautiful.
“As Luna is Spanish, we also loved the connection that the venue has with Spain through its large Spanish art collection. We booked Pollok House before Covid, and whilst it was difficult being so restricted once the pandemic came around, it also helped massively that the staff were so accommodating and, in such difficult circumstances, they helped us have a fantastic wedding.
“One particular detail that we love about the venue is the grand piano, which we took full advantage of for our ceremony music. We are so happy that we chose Pollok House, it’s an absolutely stunning venue and we would recommend it to anyone.”
