Weddings

The magnificent castle, manicured gardens and marvellous location make Crossbasket a truly beautiful setting for a wedding. The castle provides an impressive backdrop to your celebration, with versatile facilities that will make your wedding day a joy for you and every one of your guests.

The castle holds a licence that means you may choose to have both the wedding ceremony (religious or civil) as well as the reception there.

The ceremony

A marriage ceremony at Crossbasket is a very special experience. There is a range of beautiful, spacious rooms to choose from; the gold leafed Ballie Room can seat 80 people for a ceremony, or the Stewart Room, with its lovely bay window and space for up to 120 people, overlooks the beautiful gardens. 

Floral displays can be arranged to complement the bridal bouquet and, with music to suit your taste together with the historical décor, paintings and antiques, the setting could not be more romantic.

The wedding breakfast

Guests are able to enjoy a dining experience where the superb cuisine is overseen by Chef Albert Roux, OBE, KFO, and Michel Roux Jnr, leading members of the famous cooking dynasty behind such establishments as Le Gavroche, which was the first ever restaurant in the UK to be awarded three Michelin Stars.

Parties of up to 60 guests

You can be married in the Stewart Drawing Room, followed by drinks in the Baillie Dining Room and an intimate wedding breakfast in the Stewart Room, overlooking the front lawn. This option is ideal for a medium-sized party looking to have intimate ceremony followed by exquisite food.

For a group of this size, you would require the castle on an exclusive use basis; this will ensure complete privacy and give you and your guests uninterrupted access to the grounds throughout your stay...perfect for photographs!

Parties of up to 12 guests

With the ceremony held in the Lindsay Tower, and drinks in the Kincaid Library, Crossbasket acts as the perfect venue for groups of all sizes. This is the oldest part of the castle, built in the 16th century, with the intention of improving its defensive position, it is now used as a fabulous four storey suite with a sweeping spiral staircase, perfect for the bride and groom!
