An 18th century love story at Dundas Castle
To mark World Outlander Day, luxury Edinburgh residence, Dundas Castle is inviting couples to love and live like the Laird and Lady with its gorgeous new Outlander Wedding package.
Inspired by the best-selling novels and TV phenomenon, couples will be able to get married like their favourite characters in an authentic Scottish castle, with a number of special Outlander touches.
The brand new wedding offering, which launches on 1 June, includes a stunning, candle-lit ceremony in the Castle’s historic Auld Keep, a Scottish piper to add to the atmosphere, and a medieval banquet. However, the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the special package, is a beautiful replica of Claire’s ring as described in the book, designed and crafted by Scottish jeweller Hamilton and Young, and will be gifted to every bride who books an Outlander Wedding. Couples will also be offered an appointment with local supplier, ScotlandShop, who can tailor some tartan for their special day.
The wedding itself will be complete with traditional Scottish handfasting – a cleaner alternative to a blood vow – and there is an option to have the ceremony fully or partly in Gaelic.
The all important wedding breakfast will be a lavish eighteenth century inspired banquet, which can be enjoyed in the Castle’s main house, or for an intimate wedding party, can be hosted in the medieval Stag Chamber, to offer a truly authentic and unique experience.
And finally, guests will be offered a tasting of Claire and Jamie’s much-loved whisky, before dancing the night away with a ceilidh. Fireworks and a dramatic ‘Beating of the Retreat’ will provide the ultimate Scottish finale to a perfect day.
Dundas Castle is perfectly situated just 15 minutes from Edinburgh Airport, and 25 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh, yet nestled within its own 400 acres of secluded estate. The Castle, still the home of owner, Sir Jack Stewart Clark and his wife, Lady Lydia, is available on an exclusive use basis. It is an idyllic hideaway for a romantic wedding, with an expert wedding team which ensures every couple has the perfect day. From a genuinely welcoming smile on arrival, the focus is on luxury, comfort and a true five star experience.Prices start from £11,500.
