On the 29th March I was lucky enough to get married at this beautiful castle. We had the most perfect day, from the planning to the day of our wedding nothing was to much hassle. Every single detail was discussed to ensure it was perfect and it didn't dissapoint. The staff are amazing and made us feel so relaxed on our big day!! I can't recommend this venue enough for your wedding or even a break away (breakfast is fantastic). Thanks very much to everyone for making our day perfect!!

Unforgettable wedding!!! What a gorgeous venue and gardens. Online photos don't do it justice. My fiancee and I were speechless when we walked in and saw it for the first time - after 8 months of long distance planning from the US. Tracey and the castle staff made us feel like royals from the first moment. Also, the food was spectacular. Incredibly delicious. Thank you for the best day of our lives.

We had the most amazing wedding at Blairquhan on 10 March 2018. The grounds and castle itself are 5 stars, but the staff and people there are really what made it so spectacular. They were incredibly helpful and patient as we planned our wedding from Chicago and London. They went above and beyond in making our wedding weekend exactly how we envisioned it. From our first enquiry email to saying goodbye on Sunday morning after our wedding, Tracey, Anne and the whole team took care of us with extra detail and care. Additionally, the food was exquisite! The rooms were spacious and our guests loved being able to stay on the premise in the self serving cottages. We loved having most of our guests at Blairquhan with us all weekend - it made for such a unique experience. We cannot recommend Blairquhan enough. Thank you to everyone who made our weekend one we will never forget.

I got married here in 2016. Could to have picked a better wedding venue. Was just stunning. The staff were just an absolute credit loved them so much. But top marks go to their wedding organiser person Tracy . Still love her to bits. Would recommend anyone to get married here. You will not regret it.

My husband and I got married here in August and would definitely recommend as a wedding venue! Both the venue and the grounds are stunning! We rented the venue and all the cottages from Friday to Sunday, it was an amazing weekend! The staff could not have done more to support us on the run up to the wedding or to make our guests feel welcome - everyone commented on how nice the staff were as well as how great the food was! Thank you Ann, Tracey, Martin, Calum, Gail and the rest of the team for everything you did

My husband and I were married in Blairquhan in August, and what a fantastic place to get married in. We stayed on the estate for 3 days with family and friends, most of them coming from abroad. The whole event, from the dinner before the wedding day, to the wedding, to the breakfast after the wedding, were organized perfectly and executed super smoothly. Tracey and the whole team of staff were all very so kind and organized and they made this 3-day event a memorable one for us and our guests (our guests still talk about all the fun time they had). A big thank you to Tracey and the staff, and to Calum for the delicious dishes. We miss you Blairquhan; hope to come back for a visit and perhaps stay in one of the cottages again. Bahar & Misha
