A Victorian palace of Gothic splendour, a select number of weddings are arranged here for couples who cannot resist the glamour and drama of the house and its beautiful island setting (just a short scenic sea-crossing from the mainland and only 90 minutes from Glasgow Airport.)

Starry in every sense

As befits the Mount Stuart code of discretion, we do not publicise weddings here, but suffice to say those who have been captivated by Mount Stuart include stellar names in the world of fashion, music and film.

Wedding Ceremonies can be held in the breathtaking Marble Chapel or the glorious gardens – there are seven entrancing places licenced for weddings at Mount Stuart. With interior intricacies of quite extraordinary beauty; art, antiques, ancient books and a honeymoon suite with a night sky ceiling and its own glasshouse garden terrace, a wedding here is never anything less than a spectacular affair.

For complete privacy and a wonderfully decadent wedding weekend, the whole house, grounds and our cottages can be hired in their entirety: the bride, groom, family and friends take up residence and can enjoy Mount Stuart as their own.
