Weddings at Dalmunzie
Dalmunzie Castle must have one of the most spectacular and romantic locations for weddings in Britain. For ceremonies locally there are churches in Glenisla or Kirkmichael, just a short drive from the hotel.
Alternatively, you may wish to hold the ceremony in our Drawing Room or on the spacious front lawn with wonderful mountain views. A marquee can also be erected on the front lawn to provide further areas for dining and celebrations of larger parties in excess of 40 people.
A piper can be arranged to provide atmosphere, Dalmunzie’s bell rung and a Ceilidh and Fireworks organised to celebrate your evening in style.
MAKE YOUR DAY EXTRA SPECIAL
WINE & CHAMPAGNE
A wide range of sparkling and still wines are available from our extensive wine list. For specific accompaniments with meals, we will be happy to offer suggestions. Corkage is available on request.
BAGPIPES & CEILIDHS
A piper can be arranged to provide atmosphere and tradition to your wedding. Dalmunzie’s bell rung and a Ceilidh band can be organised to celebrate your evening in style. Dance your night away to traditional music and/or modern. We can organise the music and a caller for your reels if required.
Dalmunzie estate offers a wide array of activities to keep your guests satisfied. Golf, clay-pigeon shooting, mountain bikes and more are all available. For full information see our leisure page.
By arrangement, a variety of firework displays can be staged in the evening to provide a great finale to your unique day.
THE PERFECT VENUE
We would recommend that if you are considering getting married at Dalmunzie Castle you book an appointment to see our Events Coordinator. During this appointment you will be shown the public areas of the hotel, the grounds and a selection of bedrooms. We take detailed notes on the look and feel of the wedding you are planning. We listen to your ideas, make appropriate suggestions and help you to visualise what is possible for your special day.
Following on from your initial meeting we will be there through every step of the planning stages to offer as much or as little help as you require. There will be timely updates when organising entertainers, menus and guest rooming lists.
Every wedding is different and we tailor the wedding breakfast, evening buffet, canapes, or midnight nibbles to your requirements.
We involve our Head Chef in the initial conversation and he will often be present for part of your hotel visit. Once we have an idea of what your requirements are, Chef will create a customised menu plan which we then send to you for approval.
Once final arrangements have been made, we can offer you a tasting of your chosen wedding breakfast.
Generally, we will require you to choose the same menu for the whole party, however we are able to attend to individual dietary requirements.
Dinner itself may be taken in the Restaurant or James Graham Library depending on numbers or you may wish to explore the option of a marquee on the lawn. Our team of professional staff will look after you throughout the event and ensure your special day is a memorable one.SAMPLE WEDDING MENU
