The ceremony was held in the 15th-century Gothic church, set in the heart of the Estate and is one of the finest examples of its period and design in Scotland. The building provided a wonderful acoustic for the music and was a very memorable setting for a wedding ceremony.

Following the ceremony the Ritz Trio moved outside to play their usual fun set of music for the champagne reception, which included some great swing numbers such as “Fly Me To he Moon” and a few pop numbers including  “Isn’t She Lovely.”

When getting married at Dunglass you are able to have exclusive use of the Estate with charming yet contemporary accommodation in the grounds either at Dunglass House or one of the other cottages on the Estate. The team at Dunglass are also able to host a range of activities and events to keep guests entertained through the afternoon.
