Mid-Week Weddings at Dunglass Estate

If you’re looking to have a relaxed, unique wedding, Dunglass Estate may just be the perfect venue for you. But have you considered having a mid-week wedding? When you have one of Scotland’s most beautiful country estates all to yourselves, your big day should be as enjoyable as soaking in the gorgeous landscape is.

One of the main benefits of a mid-week wedding is not only cost, but you have more options than you think for your chosen date. This means you can have the venue of your dreams much sooner than you think!

Middle of the week weddings are more flexible and relaxing. Choosing a less obvious day of the week can make it even more unique and special for both you and those close to you. Your guests will also love having a mid-week holiday from work to celebrate such a special occasion with both of you.

The Uniquely Wonderful Gothic Church at Dunglass Estate

The 15th-century Gothic church set in the heart of Dunglass Estate is one of the finest examples of its period of design in Scotland. The church was founded in 1450 by the Lord of Dunglass, Sir Alexander Hume. Originally, it was served by a small college of priests, comprising a provost, three chaplains and four choirboys.

Overseen by Historic Scotland, the warm, grey stone resonates with tales of times gone by, and the half-ruined nature of this incredibly unique cross-shaped church makes it all the more atmospheric. Perfect, therefore, for the most romantic of ceremonies.

Both religious and civil ceremonies* can be held in Dunglass Church, depending on the kind of ceremony you choose to have.

The fine Gothic window arches have been opened out over the years, allowing light to flood into the building, creating the perfect blank canvas for your big day. At Dunglass, couples have an unusual level of freedom here to decorate and enhance the church to suit their style. Just imagine flower petals sprinkled on the floor and an abundance of flowers and foliage. It’ll be everything you’ve ever imagined and more.

Dramatic, romantic and unlike any other venue, Dunglass Church is a place where dreams can come true and unforgettable memories are made.

To hire the church for your ceremony contact our team.

Stone roses – how to decorate a 15th century church

That moment when guests begin to arrive at the church and step inside is always an exciting one: it’s when everything begins – with that atmosphere of happy anticipation. And at Dunglass Estate, that moment can be particularly dramatic, because our church dates from the 1400s and in its semi-ruined state is the most romantic of backdrops. Combine the faded carvings and beautifully coloured stone with the softness of flowers and even fabrics, and you get a remarkable and utterly unique effect which can mesmerise guests as they wait for the big entrance.

Unusually, we allow brides and grooms pretty much a free rein when it comes to adding their own style to the church; some places can be very strict but although the building is precious (and looked after by Historic Scotland), within reason you can allow your imagination to roam. We’ve seen dark red rose petals scattered on a rustic hessian aisle runner; masses of candles in storm lanterns clustered around the altar; end chairs or pew ends decorated with little bunches of wild flowers tethered with raffia.

For the ambitious, you can hang muslin or tulle to create a draped, tented ceiling effect, or use vintage rugs and bold blooms for a striking look. Dunglass Church is your plain but beautiful canvas to do with as you wish; or leave the ancient stone to speak for itself and make  the bride and wedding party the main attraction.

The Beauty of Dunglass Church

The beautiful, half-ruined nature of Dunglass Church makes it the most romantic place to get married. Our 15th century Gothic chapel is set within the heart of the Estate and is a stunning example of its period and design.

Cared for by Historic Scotland, Dunglass Church offers unique flexibility with creative décor and our authentic, recently-acquired church pews. The seller of the pews said:

“The pews came from Freuchie United Free Church built in 1868 and came to Corstorphine along with the organ in the mid 1950’s shortly before the former closed.”

The fine Gothic window arches have been opened out over the years, allowing light to flood into the building, creating the perfect blank canvas: imagine petals on the floor, fabrics, flowers and foliage suspended and draped – couples have an unusual level of freedom to decorate and enhance the church to suit their style.

Dramatic, romantic and unlike any other venue, Dunglass Church is a place where dreams are fulfilled and memories made.
