Thainstone Weddings 3 

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.

Thainstone Green Lady Wedding Ceremony 2

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.

An idyllic setting

Thainstone House is surrounded with idyllic parkland and woodland and right from the main entrance, there's a feeling of space and tranquility. 

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.  


Private hire for a personal touch

Thainstone House is a unique and intimate wedding venue, without the restriction of packages (unless you want them!) 

An exclusive use wedding at Thainstone House means you have complete privacy, with doors closed to any other guests for the duration of your wedding. Additionally, 'exclusive use' means you can use any area within the house as part of the celebrations.

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 subject to availability and seasonality.

Any bridal party who would like to take over Thainstone exclusively will also recieve use of all bedrooms at a special accommodation rates. Please contact our wedding co-ordinator in the first instance:
