Humanist Wedding Ceremonies
For couples who dream of walking down the aisle and experiencing the unparalleled romance and enchantment of marrying in the Great Hall of the Auld Keep, but do not wish to include a religious element to their service, a humanist ceremony is a perfect option. Humanist ceremonies are legally binding in Scotland so only one service is required, (as opposed to a civil ceremony followed by a humanist ceremony in other countries). The ceremony provides you with the opportunity to be as personal and expressive as you desire.
Humanist ceremonies may also take place in the Croquet room within the main house.

Outdoor Wedding Ceremonies
The spectacular Dundas estate is a breathtaking outdoor wedding venue with a variety of locations to fulfil any dream. For an open air wedding ceremony that is both romantic and unique, choose from a ceremony on the immaculate lawns with the dramatic backdrop of the castle façade or on a hill overlooking the sun glistened waters of the tranquil Dundas loch.
On the rare occasion that the Scottish weather is unkind, you will always have the option of inviting your guests inside where we will have transformed your chosen location into your ceremony room.
