Brodick Castle, Garden & Country Park

Celebrate in style at a quintessential island castle
A bride and groom stand on a lawn in a walled garden, with Brodick Castle on the hill above them. The couple are holding each other and looking into each other's eyes. The wind has caught the bride's veil, which billows out behind her. She is wearing a tartan shawl over her long white dress.

Venue overview


A Scottish castle wedding

Teeming with history and surrounded by mountains, Brodick is every inch the quintessential island castle ... and an incredible wedding venue. The present building was fashioned in 1844, but the seat dates back centuries to when its strategic position overlooking the Firth of Clyde made Brodick a fortress to be reckoned with. The castle was the ancient seat of the Dukes of Hamilton and contains a fabulous collection of treasured artefacts.

Outdoor wedding venue

The woodlands, waterfalls, bathing pools and exceptional views towards mainland Scotland conjure up an island charm that will beguile your guests. With three National Collections of rhododendron offering colour and fragrance throughout the year, Brodick’s romantic gardens are a picturesque setting for your wedding ceremony, alfresco reception and photography.

Alternatively, a marquee can be erected on the south-facing lawn, with the castle forming a spectacular backdrop.
