From all the team at Thainstone House, congratulations on your engagement. Whether you've been dreaming of your fairytale wedding for years, or decided that now is your time, we'd be delighted to welcome you to our unique VOWS award-winning venue in Inverurie, 30 minutes outside Aberdeen.
VICTORIA AND PAUL
“Team Thainstone went above and beyond and really gave us such a special day that we will treasure forever. We felt complete trust in Emma and knew that we could rely on her to keep us right and check things were in order. We are eternally grateful.”
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.
The parkland and manicured gardens make Thainstone House a wedding contender for any bride looking for a traditional and grand house, with plenty of room for an outside ceremony or bucks fizz and canapés on the lawn. Parking is ample and free of charge, meaning guests can arrive stress free with ample time and space for a quiet stroll in the parkland.
The Ballroom is a grand room and suited to those with a large number of friends and family sharing their big day. Capacity for up to 150 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. Capacity for up to 100 guests.
If you have an intimate wedding in mind, then the seclusion of our Laird's Room will suit your needs. The Laird's Room can be used for small ceremonies and your wedding breakfast celebrations.
The lounge and gallery can be used as an area for guests to use between your ceremony and wedding breakfast as well as a space to welcome your evening guests.
Ceremonies can be held outside on the lawn and our acres of woodland ground provide plenty of opportunities for photos of the newlyweds, friends and family.
