Regarded as one of Scotland’s most beautiful natural woodlands and glen, Kelburn offers you the perfect setting for that memorable day.
The Castle has a blend of styles and periods, from the elegant 1700 Drawing Room to the Victorian Dining Room with it’s original William Morris wallpaper.  Kelburn Castle is simply the perfect backdrop to make your event a memorable one.
Alternatively, we have our Pavilion.  A ‘blank canvas’ with open spaces, which can be decorated to suit your style and vision. Enjoying views of the Firth of Clyde and the islands of Bute, Arran and Cumbrae. With large sliding glass doors which open out on to a private patio and lawn, offering the opportunity to catering such as BBQ’s and Hog Roasts.

Our whole wedding experience with Kelburn could not have been better. We had several meetings with Louise to organise how we were going to bring our vision to life and she couldn’t have been more accommodating or helpful.  We fell in love with the venue, the ability to have our ceremony outside in nature, and the pavilion as a reception venue couldn’t have been more ideal for us to explore our own creativity to make the most personalised wedding we could.  On the day, the staff were incredible, they were so helpful in the setting up, and the day ran so smoothly we didn’t have to give anything a second thought.  

If you’re thinking of booking Kelburn for your wedding, do it! From the gorgeous venues, beautiful views, quirky accommodation, great staff and overall vibe its the best setting for the most perfect day. We cannot recommend enough!

“Thank you so much for all the hard work Louise – we could not have envisaged a more perfect day.  

 You made the whole process incredibly easy and were always there for every question we possibly had, nothing was too much of a bother, you were a rock throughout all our changes, in the lead up to the big day and on the day itself!  

 It was our real life fairy-tale!  All of our guests commented on how unique and breath-taking the venue was, it captured us as a couple perfectly!  

 Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - Mr & Mrs Wright” 

When we attended a wedding fayre at Kelburn Castle and Country Estate we knew we had found our perfect venue. Our heart was set on the Walled Garden and the Pavilion.  From our first correspondence with Louise via email we knew our wedding was in the right hands, she was enthusiastic and approachable, no question was a daft question.  

Louise is a calming presence in what can sometimes be an anxious and stressful time planning your wedding. Her professionalism and passion is evident , which gave us confidence when planning our special day. 

The walled garden venue was beautiful , the walk that the bride had from the castle to the tree was majestic.  While we were whisked away for photos, Louise and her team were there to take care and cater for our guests every whim. 

The Pavilion was decorated and tables were set by Louise just the way we wanted. Waiting and Bar staff were polite and helpful, meaning our meal was provided without any problems.  

We would do it all over again, as our wedding day was one of the best days of our life, thanks to the great venue, surroundings and of course Louise and her staff.

Kelburn was the most amazing venue to have our wedding.  Louise and her team went out of their way to make us feel supported right from the first meeting to the actual wedding day …. And boy did they graft on the day/night of our wedding. Nothing was too much of an ask and even our wacky ideas were most welcomed and accommodated.  The cost is certainly value for money as the venue allows couples scope to “build your own perfect day”.  

The day after our wedding I was told of one of the small children staying on the nearby campsite saying that he had saw a fairy in the forest….how magical that I was thought of as a fairy in my wedding dress, in the most scenic, beautiful surroundings on our big day! 

My husband and I would definitely recommend Kelburn for your wedding 

Mr and Mrs Paterson 

We were married in the beautiful Walled Garden in spring 2022, followed by a party in Pavilion.  Everything was perfect to the finest detail. 

The whole experience of the planning and then the actual wedding itself was seamless, stress free and everything we could have ever wished for.  Louise and her team work tirelessly to make sure the weddings are bespoke to the client and the end result is the most personalised and magical day in stunning surroundings.  We could not recommend Kelburn and its function team highly enough for a wedding.

“Perfect wedding venue for a laid back, untraditional wedding. Beautiful setting and such a great team to work with to achieve your dream day!”   Becky – November 2019

“From the first day we went to view Kelburn for our wedding the girls were great, so accommodating and friendly. We loved the outdoor/ woodland feel and wanted a totally relaxed intimate outdoor/woodland wedding and Kelburn was able to accommodate this perfectly. Gemma and Louise were brilliant throughout the whole planning process and made planning my wedding enjoyable. I would highly recommend Kelburn for a wedding- the majority of our guests complimented our venue several times. We had the best day- thank you to all at Kelburn.”   Lauri and David – September 2019

“Our experience was great from start to finish, not only on our wedding day but on the run up to the day as well. We dealt with both Louise & Gemma who were helpful but not overbearing. On the day everything ran so smoothly and our guests all commented afterwards on how good the staff were. I used to work in wedding service myself so I can really appreciate how much effort went into our day and how seemless the staff made it feel. I also think it’s worth noting bar prices were pretty good for a wedding and our band were also amazing (The Invitations). If your looking for a relaxed, outdoorsy wedding with a magical and intimate feel, this is the place for you”    Gillian – September 2019
