Weddings. The wedding day you've always dreamed of....


If you are looking for a wedding venue that offers something truly remarkable, then look no further. Dumfries House is an exquisite 18th-century country home which offers everything you require for your big day. The regal Tapestry Room sets the scene, providing an atmospheric space to host your Wedding ceremony. Flemish tapestries bedeck the walls of this stately room whilst the marble fireplace ensures a warm welcome for guests. The cedar-panelled room is home to the House’s Grand Piano. This majestic location allows for up to 120 of your dearest friends and family to witness you both ‘tying the knot’.

Once the ceremony is concluded, you and your guests will then enjoy drinks and canapés in the elegant Entrance Hall. On sunny days, guests are welcome to stroll around the gardens and fountain at the front of the House. Alternatively, if presented with inclement weather, the Tapestry Room is an ideal backdrop for group photographs. Post drinks and canapés, your guests will join the processional walk to the Dumfries House Pavilion, awaiting your joyous entrance. Witty speeches, delicious food and an evening of music and dance will follow.

The Ceremony

Our beautiful Tapestry Room is licensed for wedding ceremonies and provides an elegant setting for up to 120 guests seated theatre-style.
