Venue overview

Weddings

Within the castle, the beautifully restored Library is an elegant setting for civil, religious and humanist weddings. In addition, nestling in the grounds and surrounded by remnants of the ancient oak forest, Drum’s 16th-century chapel is available for religious ceremonies.

During spring and summer, the Garden of Historic Roses is a feast for the senses: a kaleidoscope of colour, and sweet with the scent of flowers from around the world. This is a romantic setting for alfresco weddings, photography, drinks receptions or a relaxing stroll before being seated for the wedding breakfast in the castle’s richly appointed Dining Room.

For larger wedding receptions, a marquee can be erected in the grounds.
