Weddings - a few more details

The Perfect Wedding Location

Cringletie is located in the rolling countryside of the Scottish Borders, near the pretty market town of Peebles.  Only 30 minutes’ drive from the exciting city of Edinburgh, and well connected to the rest of the UK by rail, and to the rest of the world via Edinburgh’s International airport.

Guests can, and do, come from all corners of the globe and arriving up Cringletie’s sweeping driveway and seeing the house for the first time is always a special moment.

If you are thinking of proposing to your loved one or if you have already decided to get married, get in touch with us, let us be part of this very special occasion.

A Private Affair?

We hold large weddings for up to 100 guests and smaller weddings for a select few – We can offer the entire castle for ‘exclusive use’ or just keep your chosen rooms private for you and your guests.  The choice is yours.

Saying ‘I do’

We are licensed for cival, humanist and religious wedding ceremonies. Scotland is one of the few countries in the world where humanist marriage ceremonies are fully legal and recognised, and since the 31st of December 2014 same-sex couples are able to get married in Scotland.

It is an honour to be able to share our experience and expertise to help couples turn their dreams into reality at Cringletie House, celebrating all love and backgrounds.  We offer a selection of spectacular rooms as a setting for the occasion.  Our conservatory is a popular choice or if weather permits what could be nicer than an open air service in the garden.  We even offer a red carpet arrival should you wish to make an entrance!

Drinks reception and photo opportunities

Should you wish we can serve drinks and mouth-watering canapés on the lawn, in the conservatory, or the lounge whilst you make the most of the photo opportunities around the hotel and gardens for your wedding photos.

We’ve seen it all, from trampolining brides to BMXing grooms, we’ve even delivered Highland cattle on request for the photos.

The Wedding Breakfast

We pride ourselves on our reputation for good food and a wedding is an occasion for us to shine. We have some suggested packages, but you can pick and choose between them or create something entirely bespoke.  We offer a complimentary tasting 6 weeks before the big day, we then tailor the final menu, simple or extravagant, around your own tastes, preferences and even guest peculiarities!  The Restaurant makes a truly romantic setting for dinner with its hand painted ceiling and views across open countryside.

The Entertainment

Whether you dream of an early night with your newlywed or partying until dawn.  Whether you want live music, a ceilidh, a disco or a waltz. You may have it all worked out and if not we have heaps of suggestions to help.

And So To bed

Spend your wedding night in the sumptuous Selkirk Suite, with Jacuzzi bath and half tester bed – not quite a four poster but just as romantic.  We have an additional 12 luxurious bedrooms and a 2 bedroomed cottage for your guests.

Of course we can’t possibly share all of the details of your big day here.  If you want to take this further, please phone us on 01721 725750 (asking for Louise or Johanna) or send us an email; and they will be your "one stop shop" for the entire wedding planning.
