Imagine having your wedding in your very own castle ...
There can be no more magnificent setting for your celebrations than this spectacular fairytale Scottish castle. During the celebrations, wedding parties enjoy full use of the castle grounds and its thirty-six acres of glorious Gertrude Jekyll gardens. Set high on a hill looking out across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Arran, the Mull of Kintyre and the magical Ailsa Craig, Glenapp Castle Hotel is an Ayrshire wedding venue like no other, with exquisite individually appointed rooms, outstanding cuisine, fine wines and exceptional service.
The castle is available all year round to host exclusive use weddings, both in the castle and for greater numbers with the benefit of a marquee.
Glenapp Castle can host bespoke small weddings accommodating up to 34 guests at the castle, with potential for a further 40 guests being accommodated in five-star quality cottages within two miles of the castle along the River Stinchar and the Harbour front. For further accommodation, nearby Turnberry (25 minutes by road) has up to 200 rooms. Complimentary transfers can be provided for guests staying in local accommodation and indeed our concierge team provide breakfasts and hotel support into the cottages.
We are able to host receptions in the castle Drawing Room for up to 75, and up to 250 in a marquee.
We are happy to accept one-night exclusive use reservations at the quieter times of our season, but we recommend that, if possible, wedding parties should stay for two nights. We have found through experience that a stay of two nights is generally a much more leisurely and relaxed occasion, which also allows more opportunities for activities to be arranged for the guests.
Where a couple wish to be married at the castle, either alone, or with a maximum of four guests, we can, at quieter times of year, arrange this on a non-exclusive use basis, with a private ceremony being conducted in one of our suites or in the gardens. Please contact us for further information.
