"We held our wedding at Thainstone House on 1st March 2015 and it was all we could have hoped for and more. Throughout the planning process, Angela was great to work with and extremely helpful, answering all of my (many) queries at the earliest opportunity. The night before the wedding we had a large family meal at the hotel (which we had only arranged that morning) and although the hotel were extremely busy with another wedding, they arranged a private room for our party to dine in which was fantastic. Everyone was commenting on how delicious the food was! The wedding day itself really couldn't have been any better. The staff were so attentive all day and nothing was too much trouble. They did an amazing job dressing the Green Lady for the ceremony and the ballroom for the reception. It truly is a stunning venue for a wedding. The wedding meal was exceptional and all of our guests were impressed. As we live locally we will definitely be returning!"

Wedding of my Dreams...

"I don’t know where to start really! 10 months ago, we decided that Thainstone House Hotel was our perfect wedding location, based just out the outskirts of Aberdeen, but far enough away to feel like you are a million miles away. From planning to the day itself I cannot describe how wonderful it was. Angela and her team could not have been more attentive, helpful and accommodating. The bedrooms are immaculate, I stayed in a family room the night before my wedding with my 2 bridesmaids and the bridal suite the night of the wedding. Lots of guests commented on the very high standard of the accommodation. The food is outstanding, we ate in the Stockmans bar on the Friday night – it was beautiful! We had a fantastic waitress who looked after us the whole weekend. The wedding meal itself was a very high standard and lots of people again commented on the food and canapés! The haggis bon bons especially! The ballroom is a big, bright spacious room that was perfect for our wedding meal and evening reception, we had our ceremony in the Green Lady room – again it was just what we imagined. The real fires in the reception rooms and the bar areas are cozy and very welcoming! Although it was a beautiful sunny day, it was nice to come inside to see the fires were on! The spa is great, with good size pool and outdoor hot tub, we didn’t have any treatments but we would have if we had time. 

I have nothing but praise for this hotel and staff and I can’t wait to go back!"

Sip Champagne and sample delightful canapés as you explore Thainstone House hotel’s idyllic grounds – could this be your ideal wedding venue? Bursting at the seams with history, tradition and grandeur, with an authentic ballroom, luxurious bedrooms and scenic gardens that make the perfect backdrop for wedding photos, Thainstone House is delighted to show you around and give you some inspiration for the big day.

On the last Wednesday of every month we host an open evening from 6pm – 8pm, allowing you to envisage exactly where your wedding will be held, or you can come along to our Wedding Fair where a range of wedding suppliers will be exhibiting including photographers, wedding dress suppliers, florists and many more! You can meet our wedding co-ordinator who will be delighted to answer any queries you may have.

Our next walk around will be held on Wednesday 30th September. We look forward to welcoming any expected brides or grooms to be.
