Your Wedding/Event at Ardmay House
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding or event! We understand that 2020 has been a difficult time for many, and plans have changed at short notice for many.
Ardmay House is available to hire on an exclusive use basis for small weddings, events and celebrations of up to 30 guests. There are various large spaces, both indoors and outdoors where you can hold your wedding ceremony. We can accommodate up to 22 guests in our accommodation.
Ardmay House is hired out on an exclusive-use, self-catering basis. We do not charge any more to hold your wedding/event at Ardmay than for a standard self catering let and it is a ‘blank canvas’ for couples to create their relaxed, intimate Scottish wedding.
The current guidance (July 2020) from The Scottish Government on wedding ceremonies indicates a maximum of 20 guests at the ceremony, and a reception that will allow for 1 metre physical distancing. We ask that couples ensure that government guidelines are adhered to at all times, and will ask for a signed copy of our Covid-19 Policy and Risk Assessment, as well as keeping a register of attendees.
