How are you spending New Year? Let’s be honest, the holiday can often fall flat – you could be doing your friends and family a massive favour if you take Dundas Castle up on its latest offer. The glorious five-star, 400-acre South Queensferry setting is taking a cool £2,019 off the usual facility fee for the first weddings of 2019 (January and February).
It’s also throwing in a piper to greet your guests on arrival and lead them to the dinner table, a bonus fireworks finale worth £250 (for every purchased display over £795 from pyrotechnic specialists 21CC) and a buy two, get two free canapé deal from luxury caterer Prestige Venues and Events.
“My wife and I love having couples to share our home for their big day, and we are thrilled this winter offering will be at a time of the year when the romance of the castle really shines through,” says the castle’s owner Sir Jack Stewart-Clark. “There’s nothing better than a celebratory drink by a roaring log fire on a crisp winter’s evening.
“Dundas Castle offers a flexible choice for weddings, with a multitude of options for holding a religious, humanist or civil ceremony,” he adds. “Couples looking for a traditional Scottish castle wedding need look no further than the 15th century Auld Keep, while the elegant main house provides a spectacular home from home for a sophisticated yet comfortable feel. Meanwhile, larger weddings of up to 200 can take place in the contemporary Pavilion Marquee or in the beautiful outdoor courtyard.”
We’ve never been more excited for a cold spell.
