Wedding Venue in Inverurie by Aberdeen

Congratulations from the team at Thainstone House on your engagement and we welcome you to weddings at Thainstone online. 

The house…

Built in the 18th century Thainstone has a rich history as a much loved family home, grand Aberdeenshire landmark and now a hotel and wedding venue.

Whether you have been planning your fairytale wedding for many a year, or decided on a whim that now is your time, we believe at Thainstone we have the perfect mansion style wedding venue suited to every couple looking for a traditional venue.

A wedding should be one of the best days of a couple’s life and we want to be a part of that memory. What we offer is:

  • Acres of woodland and grounds
  • 18th century Palladian mansion house
  • Grand ballroom
  • Drawing room with log fire for pre-reception drinks
  • Civil, religious and humanist ceremonies
  • Outdoor ceremonies on the lawn
  • Grounds for a marquee
  • Wedding co-ordinator

Grounds...

In addition to the grand house, Thainstone is all about the grounds.  They are extensive and consist of woodland and parkland, which means there is a huge amount of flexibility in what you use them for.  The grounds are suited to a service, pre-reception drinks, holding a marquee, outdoor activities and entertainment and fireworks.

Rooms...

Bridal suite accommodation is included on the evening of your wedding as part of the package at Thainstone.  With our 48 stylish guestrooms, we can also host many of your guests at a reduced rate.

Private hire of Thainstone House on your special day.  The house is only 15 miles from Aberdeen Airport, making it an agreeable traditional wedding venue in Scotland for a private house hire.  When having a wedding at Thainstone House on ‘exclusive use’ this means that clients have complete privacy and means we will close the doors to any other guests for the duration of your wedding. Additionally, ‘exclusive u’se means that you can use any area within the house as part of the celebrations.

Any bridal party who would like to take over Thainstone exclusively must be happy to fill all bedrooms at 100% occupancy at special accommodation rates (bridal parties may often also choose to subsidise the rate for accommodation rates).

To hire Thainstone exclusively, we charge a facility hire charge which covers the period from 11am on the wedding day until 11am the next day, and this means that there will only be your guests within the house during the time period stated. Exclusive weddings are completely subject to availability and seasonality and due to the complexity of hosting such an affair this type of wedding must be handled with the General Manager directly. 

Please contact the wedding co-ordinator, Angela Dow, in the first instance by email weddings.thainstone@crerarhotels.com.

We have taken care in tailoring a few packages to choose from at Thainstone, which means that every couple has the choice to match their budget and/or requirements to suit them.  The packages are as a guide and can be flexible, and will be re-priced accordingly, just ask our co-ordinator.
