Historic house, modern weddings

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

We believe this grand old Palladian mansion house and its grounds offer a stunning location suited to any couple looking for a traditional Scottish wedding venue.

Thainstone House is licensed for civil, religious and humanist ceremonies, which can take place outside on the lawn, or inside in the Ballroom or other smaller rooms. All rooms are large with tall windows throughout, ensuring your special day is one of grandeur and brightness.

 

Before and after the big day

Drinks receptions are often held by the log fire in the Drawing Room, and our acres of woodland ground provide plenty of opportunities for gorgeous photos of the newlyweds, friends and family.

With advance booking, any of the wedding party can enjoy a spa experience to pamper themselves and relax ahead of the main event. Later, close the night out with a firework display before you retire to one of our elegant accommodation options. For an overnight stay, Thainstone House really is the ideal escape for an intimate wedding. 

 

Let the bridal party or groomsmen get a feel for the venue - ask about hen and stag do packages.

Award-winning venue

In November 2018, Thainstone House was thrilled to be awarded Wedding Venue of the Year for the Aberdeen & Grampian Region at the Scottish VOWS Awards. 

The VOWS Awards recognise companies within the Scottish wedding industry that deliver customer service of the highest standard. Suppliers like ourselves must receive at least 10 nominations from different wedding parties to be shortlisted, so a huge thank you to all the brides and grooms who voted for us. 

 

The ceremony

The Green Lady Restaurant (up to 100 guests)

The Green Lady restaurant is a long room with Wedgewood green walls, grand paintings and huge windows drawing in the natural light from the parkland. It's well suited to a long aisle for that dramatic entrance.

 

Ballroom (150 guests) 

The Ballroom is a grand room and suited to those with a large number of friends and family sharing their big day.

An outdoor service can be conducted on the lawns in the summer months, which is always weather permitting - please ask for details.

 

Suppliers 

Thainstone House has relationships with many wedding suppliers, ranging from car hire to wedding cake experts. 

Room decorations are one of the most common requirements we are asked to assist with and we can recommend suppliers to help with table décor, chair covers and bespoke room décor. 

We often host wedding fairs and open days throughout the year where we welcome these suppliers along, a great chance for you to discuss options with them.
