Marble Chapel

The 3rd Marquess of Bute commissioned the building of the Marble Chapel in 1896 and it was finally completed in 1998, almost 100 years after the 3rd Marquess’ death.

The chapel combines both French and Spanish architecture, lined with stunning white Carrera marble, the ruby red glass in the windows of the Clerestory illuminate the space with a gorgeous warm glow. The floor is inspired by the Cosmati style designs in the Sistine Chapel and Westminster Abbey and represents the elements of earth, fire, wind and water.

The soaring, elegant shape of the chapel finishes in the lantern painted in the 1990s by decorative artist Tom Errington, including a choir of angels. A truly romantic location for your special day.

Marble Hall

The Marble Hall is the heart of Mount Stuart soaring to a height of 80 feet with arches upon arches of rare Sicilian marble and alabaster. Designed by H W Lonsdale for the 3rd Marquess of Bute, from the starry ceiling designs to the stained glass windows, astrology and astronomy create an atmosphere of awe-inspiring mystery in this impressive space.

Whether your future is written in the stars or waiting to be created  there’s no better place to begin your journey than the Marble Hall.

This space is also perfect for your reception and wedding dinner with room for plenty of tables or you can dance the night away under Londsdale’s stars.  Baronet David Hunter Blair, in 1897, said ‘was there ever such a hall for hide-and-seek?’

Rock Garden

The Rock Garden, directly opposite the House, is home to a rare collection of Asiatic plants, evergreen trees and the gentle cascading of waterfalls and serene pools. As intimate and private as any room in the house the Rock Garden is perfect for small weddings for only your closest friends and family.

The garden was originally designed by Thomas Mawson in the 1890s using an ingenious system of pumps that draws the water from half a mile away. Since then the garden has been growing and changing under the watchful eyes of the Marchionesses of Bute, including Eileen Bute, wife of the 5th  Marquess, in the 1950s and, more recently, Jennifer Bute, wife of the 6th Marquess.

From the Wee Garden you can stroll along the Via Dolorosa up to Calvary Pond. This series of streams and pools which winds down to the sea is based on the 12 Stations of the Cross with Calvary Pond, a heart shaped pool, carved out from the woodland at the top of the hill. For adventurous brides and grooms only!
