Within Haddo House, the Library and Drawing Room can host civil, religious and humanist weddings, whilst the beautiful chapel in the grounds is available for religious ceremonies of all Christian denominations.

The elegant interconnecting public rooms are ideal for drinks receptions, allowing guests to relax, mingle and enjoy the surroundings before dinner.

From the House, a short stroll through the grounds leads to the Canadian Hall for ceilidhs, dancing and the evening's festivities. Inspired by Lord & Lady Aberdeen's first trip to Canada in 1890, the Hall is also available for dinners, receptions and parties.

For larger wedding receptions, a marquee can be erected on the Lower Lawn, adjacent to the Canadian Hall.


Haddo House is an exceptional venue for both relaxed corporate hospitality and fine dining. The Canadian Hall provides additional flexible meeting and conference facilities, and is also suitable for gala dinners, champagne receptions and concerts.
