Mount Stuart is a wedding venue like no other. Steeped in history and adorned with some of Scotland’s most celebrated art and design, this hidden gem offers the perfect backdrop for your special day, surrounded by those you love.
Mount Stuart House and Gardens provide a variety of spaces for both indoor and outdoor weddings and can cater for up to 200 guests. Our dedicated events team can work with you to tailor your day to make it truly unique.
We can also accommodate your wedding party, with 6 bedrooms in Mount Stuart House sleeping up to 12 guests and cosy self-catering properties located across the island.
Stepping into the Marble Chapel will transport you straight into the pages of a fairy tale, with its floor-to-ceiling white Sicilian marble. Part of the main building, the Marble Chapel was designed with architectural inspiration taken from The Sistine Chapel. It offers a dramatic yet elegant grandeur for you to say your vows, whether in a religious or humanist wedding ceremony. On sunny days the colourful reflections of the stained glass windows on the marble floor add a magical feel to this unique wedding ceremony space.
The Marble Hall, at the heart of the house, provides the perfect space for you and your guests to raise a glass and celebrate your special day. Soaring to a height of 80 feet and constructed from rare Italian and Sicilian marble and alabaster, the Marble Hall combines astrological decoration with the luxurious palaces of Greece. Your guests will be seated beneath the stars of the night sky, as the vaulted ceiling is adorned with crystal stars and ethereal figures representing each constellation.
The Drawing Room is an elegant, ornate space ideal for your drinks reception. Guests can relax on the comfortable furnishings whilst enjoying live music, surrounded by some of the finest paintings in The Bute Collection. Why not treat your guests to a chance to explore the house with one of our enthusiastic tour guides whilst you nip away for your wedding photographs?
It can also provide a private space for your first few moments as newlyweds and a stunning backdrop for your first photos together.
