Spectacular gardens: a Blair Castle wedding

Blair Castle sits at the hub of a breathtaking historic landscape and the castle’s grounds are no exception. Covering 2,500 acres of the estate, the landscaped gardens were established in the 18th century creating beautiful and tranquil surroundings to compliment the castle, perfect for your wedding photography.

If you’re looking to have your wedding outdoors, in a marquee or are looking for a combination of romantic interiors and spectacular gardens, Blair Castle’s Gardens and Grounds provide the perfect venue for you, and your guests, to take in the stunning backdrop of the Highlands.   

Hercules Garden

Recently restored to its original Georgian design, Hercules Garden is a nine acre walled garden of fruit trees and colourful planting borders, complete with a large landscaped pond, Chinese bridge and a trail of contemporary and 18th century sculptures. The peaceful and romantic atmosphere of the garden make it an ideal setting for a wedding ceremony or drinks reception.

St Bride’s Kirk

The ruin of St Bride’s Kirk dates back to Celtic times and is a popular venue for wedding ceremonies. The ancient walls and open roof give it a historic and romantic atmosphere in which to exchange your wedding vows. Perfect for an intimate wedding, the kirk provides a quirky alternative to a traditional church wedding and can hold up to 70 guests.
