Drumtochty Castle and
St Palladius Church, Auchenblae


We're not allowed favourite wedding venues... but if we were, Drumtochty would be up there

Drumtochty Castle and St Palladius Church


If we asked our kids to draw a picture of a castle, most likely they’d model it on Drumtochty Castle. Drumtochty Castle rocks our photography world. From our very first wedding of Rach and Ian all those years ago we knew that this was a special, special place.

Drumtochty is designed for wedding celebrations that put friends and family at the heart of the party. It’s an exclusive use venue like few others. They’ve adopted the term home from home and take it to another level. The philosophy at Drumtochty is simple; it’s your home away from home. Weddings at Drumtochty Castle last a whole weekend – and that means loads of time to spend with your friends and family so it just turns into the best house party ever.

Wedding breakfasts are held in a wood panelled ballroom (complete with crystal chandeliers, Highland stags and Canadian byson) with the fairytale St Palladius Church literally at the end of the driveway, oodles of bedrooms you can invite your nearest and dearest to spend the night, cracking food (and a BYOB policy to boot!) and you’ll see why this venue ticks so many of our favourite boxes.

Another part of Drumtochty’s brilliance is the team who will be there throughout the celebrations to plan and guide as you create a wedding like none other.

Niels & Alie love…

The beautiful Estate and woodlands just at the end of the driveway (and if you time it correctly you’ll get shafts of sunlight cutting through the trees).

The spectacular  viewpoint at the Cairn o’ Mount. All on your doorstep…

We love how Drumtochty have redefined the statement home from home – it’s your castle for your wedding. End of.

The team headed up by Nikki. Oh and we also love Fluffy the Wild Mountain Goat. He just can’t but help get involved in the wedding shenanigans.

Lottie & Cam’s romance has been filled with the most incredible adventures, so a travel-themed wedding for them was so more than a theme – it’s really at the heart of who they are.
