Culzean Castle

A trip to Culzean might be the closest you’ll ever come to exploring a fairy tale castle and its grounds. The sprawling, soaring cliff-top mansion is one of Ayrshire most incredible wedding venues. Culzean dates to 1792 and boasts an exquisite Georgian interior that is sure to wow your guests.

Brig O’ Doon House

If you’re looking to bring your love of literature into your big day, look no further than Brig o’ Doon House & Gardens.
