When you are getting married one of the first decisions you will need to make is where to hold the ceremony and if you are looking for an intimate unique venue what could be better than an historic medieval castle.
The peace and beauty of the surrounding area makes Branxholme Castle, our enchanting historic venue dating back to the 16th century, the ideal intimate wedding venue offering numerous opportunities to ensure that your wedding day flows seamlessly, leaving happy memories to look back on.
Ancestral home of the “Bold Buccleuch” and a master stronghold dating back to the times of the Borders’ troubled history when marauding bands of “reivers” plundered the border between England and Scotland, this timeless enchanting historic venue has been lovingly renovated by the current owners to create a magical setting for your intimate wedding.
The Great Hall of Branxholme with its grand fireplace, as well as the beautiful Buccleuch Room, are the perfect settings for an unforgettable wedding ceremony.
The Great Hall can seat up to 40 guests and the Buccleuch Room up to 60 guests.
The Great Hall and Buccleuch Room also are the ideal places for a drinks reception, with your guests mingling within these historic places.
Alternatively, couples preferring be married outdoors within Branxholme’s extensive gardens, can hold their ceremony within the elegant outdoor wedding pavilion, amid stunning panoramic landscapes.
For your wedding reception, the unique historic Great Hall or the outdoor pavilion is the perfect place for a memorable occasion.
For the evening of your wedding the Bridal Suite within the Castle is provided as complementary as is exclusive use of the “Spa” containing a five seater hot tub, housed within the 15th century tower.
We understand your wedding day is important to you and we want to ensure that you have a fabulous day.
