"We fell in love with Carrick Castle Estate the moment we saw the views! We loved the idea of having a wedding weekend with our friends and family. Also, it was important for us to have our own personalities within the wedding, and you can really make it your own at Carrick Castle Estate. I still love seeing all the other wedding couple photos because I know every one will be so beautiful and unique. 

 

We chose to use the barn, lodge and guest accommodation and everything was luxurious and outstanding! We had around 100 guests at our wedding, with lots of entertainment for kids (bouncy disco castle)! 

 

The team at Carrick Castle Estate are wonderful and accommodating in every way. Hannah and Darius looked after us throughout our wedding planning journey, especially during the most difficult time with covid rearrangements. They supported us and helped keep our spirits up throughout the most uncertain times. They made us feel so special and cared for on our wedding day, with nothing being too much trouble.

 

Our guests still talk about our wedding venue, and we cannot wait to revisit and meet the alpacas! We would highly recommend the best venue with the most wonderful staff and views.

 

Love the O'Donnell's ❤️"

"Our wedding at Carrick Castle was everything we hoped for and more. The reason we chose Carrick Castle to start with was because of pretty specific criteria - we wanted a rustic barn wedding overlooking a Loch! And that’s actually pretty difficult to find. When we visited for the first time, Hannah showed us around the estate and we knew it was perfect. We loved the fact that we could really make it our own - with everything from the decor through to the food and drink.

On our wedding weekend, we booked all the extra accommodation options, and it meant our whole family and wedding party could be on site with us which was really special. 

We were unbelievably lucky with the weather and had a whole weekend of sunshine! Pushing our wedding back one year due to covid made it all worth it just because of that. 

Hannah and Darius were so helpful throughout all the planning process and the wedding weekend itself, giving recommendations for suppliers etc. and running through what was available to use on site with us.

We can’t wait to come back and stay at the Estate in the future!"

Wow!!!!! We had the most magical weekend here at Carrick Castle Lodge. We had the pleasure of dealing with the loveliest, most helpful hosts, Hannah & Darius. They were so welcoming, organised, down to earth with great communication. From the very beginning and knew after only visiting one venue that this was the one for us.

The grounds, location and facilities were everything we wanted and more. Nearly 1 year married we would love to revisit. The memories and day was one to remember and will stick in our hearts forever.

Thank you so much!

“Had a marvellous wedding weekend at Carrick Castle Estate including hire of the Main Lodge, cottages and barn for the wedding reception. The Estate was presented beautifully all weekend while Darius and Hannah were fantastic in dealing with all our queries and requests! Carrick Castle Estate has some of the best scenery in Scotland and all the facilities are fitted to the highest quality. We also made great use of the sauna and steam room after our wedding which were a lovely bonus!

"My husband and I got married at Carrick Castle Estate in July 2021 after we got engaged in July 2019. We chose Carrick Castle Estate the same month we got engaged, and for the two years that followed, the run up to our wedding and the work Hannah and Darius put in was impeccable. From our initial visit, to coming back up with my besties to surprise them by asking them to be bridesmaids here, and recommending excellent suppliers whilst also giving us freedom to choose our own - it was everything we could have wished for and more. The communication was excellent, and even though we had so many questions, we were never made to feel like we were taking up too much of their time. All the special touches that you could think of, Hannah was one step ahead. Because we were doing all the decor ourself we were also made to feel welcome to come back up a few times before our day to give us the time and space we needed to plan and pull everything together.

The actual day itself could not have been more perfect. I absolutely love looking at our photos (from recommender supplier Darren Mitchell) because the setting is just unbelievable. The houses are also all stunning, and the barn is so light and airy.

We had the houses for the whole weekend and our guests felt like they were on a luxury weekend away - because they were! We had a great day at our bbq the next day, catching up with all our loved ones about the day before.

Hannah and Darius have thought of everything. If I could go back I’d literally make no changes. Thank you to the team for giving us our best day."

“Words fail to describe just how amazing Carrick Castle Estate is as a wedding Venue. The views of the loch and surrounding hills make this venue have a magical presence that we simply fell in love with as soon as we viewed it.

 

The options you have here make the venue even more unique, with the lodge, summer house, lawn and barn all options for both the ceremony and reception. This flexibility to choose where we wanted each element to take place and design our own weeding meant we had the freedom to make our vision a reality.

 

Our day couldn’t have been any better- the weather was tremendous and we had a sunny, Scottish September wedding! We were lucky enough to get married on the lawn overlooking the Loch and have the drinks reception in the courtyard before partying into the night in the barn.

 

A critical part of our experience was having the ability to have family and friends onsite. Carrick doesn’t disappoint with the exceptional lodge and cottages providing all the flexibility we needed. Did I also mention the hot tub, steam room and sauna?

 

Huge thank you to Hannah, Darius and the team as well - couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the whole process”

"Where to start here I’m not sure! Maybe with five stars ***** I cannot recommend Carrick Castle Estate enough. The lodge is out of this world beautiful. When you stay there it’s like a dream. We stayed 4 nights over our wedding with our bridal party and used the houses around for our families. There was nothing better than sitting out the back balcony that over looks the mountains on the morning of my wedding, having a few glasses of fizz watching the birds of prey. The beauty of Scottish wilderness and wildlife right there while you are in the comfort of the Luxury lodge. The whole process of wedding planning was very easy and Hannah was helpful in every way she could be. There were so many options for us on the day! We had such a great time and the weather was great so we got our outdoor wedding! Darius even took us both up the hill in the tank to get some cool photos. Legend! We already can’t wait to go back up to the lodge. Thank you to the Carrick Castle Team for not only the best day but the best 4 days of my life! The new Mrs Jones"

This is a new and spectacularly built lodge. It is hard to justify with mere pictures. We expected a fine place but we were blown away by the quality of the house and its contents. The house was even bigger than expected and easily big enough for the 13 guests that we were. There are two en-suites and a whole ‘spa corridor of (I don’t know how many (5?) other shower and bathrooms, not to mention the hot tub, sauna and steam room. The surroundings are magnificent but we have to split the time outside and in as we loved the house so much. The reception from Hannah and team was fantastic and they went out of their way to make sure we were welcome, happy and comfortable. Thanks Hannah!

"My husband and I got married at Carrick Castle Estate in April and it was a truly magical weekend. We had a marquee out on the front lawn to make the most of the view and boy, did it not disappoint! All of our guests were blown away by the location and the lodge itself is one of the most luxurious places I’ve every stayed. Hannah and Darius were so accommodating and so helpful, we couldn’t have asked for better host. It was so wonderful being able to stay on site with all of our families in both the lodge and the surrounding houses, it made the whole weekend that much more special. WE can’t wait to all come back for the next big family party!"
