Over in the west, Glasgow has some secrets up its sleeve, too. Greenbank Garden is an idyllic oasis in the south of the city. Utterly tranquil, it’s the perfect spot for a chilled summer wedding – get married in the open air, sip champagne by the flower beds, and make the most of the famous fountains for your wedding photography.

Also in Glasgow, Holmwood is a classical villa with space for up to 50 guests. And what a space it is! Built by the legendary Scottish architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thompson, it’s a family home with grand imagination. Vibrant colours, columns and cupolas make this a must-see wedding venue for anyone who wants to turn up the style.

Culross Palace in Fife is another charming Outlander location that doubles as a unique wedding venue. The historical village around the cosy palace is picture-perfect, with steep cobbled streets and medieval-style gardens, and has starred in films like 39 Steps and Captain America. Could this be the place to say your starring lines opposite your own superhero?

One of the most surprising things about Robert Burns Birthplace Museum is quite how modern and stylish it is. The historic home of the national bard is a breathtaking space in a prime Ayrshire location, where everything is designed to bring Burns and his work to life. Theme your big day around Scotland’s most famous poet, with a traditional Burns Supper, a viewing of the museum artefacts, and an ode to the haggis – nothing could possibly ‘gang a-gley’ …

Finally, for happy couples with artistic tastes, Broughton House offers something completely unique and unexpected. Once the home of ‘Glasgow boy’ E A Hornel, it houses an incredible collection of art, and you and your guests can mingle in Hornel’s original studio. There’s an extra surprise in store, too, in the form of a quaint Japanese-inspired garden – perfect for canapés and alfresco ceremonies.
