As a past winner of Best Country House Wedding Venue, not just once but twice, and more recently CIS Hotel of the Year 2014 – 2015, we know how to look after you and your guests, ensuring your wedding is simply unique and personal. Enjoy an outdoor ceremony if the weather allows followed by a champagne reception on the lawns.

Chilled champagne is sipped, as the tradition of the cutting of the cake is observed, guests are then led into the beautifully decorated Wedding Breakfast Room, overlooking the famous River Tay.

Behind the scenes, Head Chef, Scott Scorer will be preparing the final touches to the food, he has carefully prepared for your sumptuous wedding breakfast, food at Ballathie is a celebration in itself, great passion along with the use of local fresh ingredients are part of the menu for the day.

Glasses are charged, toasts are made, laughter rings out along with a rousing few minutes of applause, and the blushing Bride and dashing Groom leave the wedding breakfast room to refresh and prepare for an evening of fun and dancing.

During our summer season, we exclusively reserve all 25 bedrooms in the main house for your wedding – which allows you to enjoy an evening party with music and dancing. Exclusive hire of the main house at Ballathie will give your special day the grandeur it deserves.

If the number of guests is likely to exceed 90 during the day, we would recommend you consider hiring a marquee. We have the perfect spot for the Marquee to sit beside the house, and be connected with a covered walkway, to ensure guests do not need to go outside to gain access to the hotel. Our Deputy Manager, Gail Schofield is very experienced and has overseen many Marquee events at Ballathie, she is adept with the knowledge of what is required and the most cost efficient manner in which to equip the marquee to your requirements. We work alongside Henderson Gray Marquee Hire. They are specialists in clear span frame marquees that can be used all year around. Numbers can then increase to approx 200 guests. Gail will work with you and provide you with a comprehensive quotation, should you wish to consider a Marquee for your wedding breakfast and evening party.

We will only ever accept one wedding on any given day, our belief is that you and your guests deserve our undivided attention throughout your special day.

Please note we are unable to accept weddings with evening entertainment between 1st August and 15th October each
