WeddingsAt The Hope Scott Wing

The Hope Scott Wing provides the ideal setting for you and your guests to celebrate your special day. Set above the murmuring waters of the River Tweed, nestled in a secluded spot amidst the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders, this accommodation is effortlessly romantic. 

The Venue

We offer intimate wedding packages, including your stay in the Hope Scott Wing, allowing you to prepare for your special day in quiet calm and end it in lavish comfort. You can share your beautiful ceremony with up to 28 day-guests and the luxury five-star accommodation with up to 14 overnight guests.

The Ceremony

Choose between saying your vows in the exquisite Wedding Suite, ideal for civil ceremonies, the intimate Catholic chapel or outside at our beautiful icehouse terrace with 28 of your closest family and friends.

Wedding Photography

The natural beauty of Abbotsford provides a unique stage to capture those precious moments. The wedding party will have full access to the stunning Regency Walled Gardens and the surrounding picturesque woodland and riverside areas. After public visiting hours, you can also choose to have your photographs taken in Sir Walter Scott's home, including in his magnificent library.

The Reception

Drinks and canape reception, of up to 28 guests, can be arranged in the public rooms of the Hope Scott Wing (the Reception, Welcome Hall, sumptuous Sitting Room and Lockhart Library), on the exquisite ice house terrace, or in the fascinating Sir Walter Scott Exhibition in our Visitor Centre.

Wedding Breakfast and Evening Party

After the wedding ceremony, day-guests can dine in the Hope Scott Wing's Dining Room (up to 24 guests), Sir Walter Scott's grand Dining Room (up to 18 guests) or can retreat to our events space, Ochiltree's, for a lavish Wedding Breakfast (up to 94 guests). Ochiltree's can also cater for additional night guests, where you can dance the night away.
