Throw an all-weekend wedding party in the Scottish Borders
Are you looking for a relaxed, laid-back wedding party with just your closest family and friends? Somewhere where your celebrations can extend over a few days rather than be one day that goes by in a flash?
At Aikwood Tower that’s exactly how your wedding will be. You hire our sumptuous, cosy castle exclusively for a week or weekend and make it your home from home, creating the perfect intimate wedding atmosphere for all your guests. Having had a busy month meeting lots of newly engaged couples and talking to them about their wedding ideas, we wanted to share some thoughts on what makes Aikwood such a special wedding venue.
Make a weekend of it
On the eve of your wedding, celebrations begin with a small wedding party get-together, giving you all time to catch up, properly relax and make Aikwood your own. The challenge will be pulling yourself away from the fire to ensure you get a good night’s rest!
On the big day, whether your guest list is ten or sixty you will be perfectly at home in our function spaces. Smaller weddings can take place in the orchard or in front of the Great Hall fire, both having a wonderful sense of occasion without feeling too big or austere. For larger groups, the Cart Shed with our long refectory-style tables is perfect for the most convivial of Wedding Breakfasts.
Something for everyone
Throughout the day all your guests mingle and mill around the Tower and our gorgeous gardens. And in the evening, whether you want live music and dancing in the Laich Hall or a more laid-back gathering, relaxing in front of the Great Hall fire with fizz and whisky, then Aikwood Tower has it all.
But your Aikwood Tower wedding doesn’t finish at the end of the day. You can choose to stay another night or two in five-star style - invite guests back for an after-party brunch, lunch or have a private night, just the two of you, remembering and reliving every moment of the day you said ‘I Do’.
