You may consider holding your wedding ceremony in the Dryburgh Abbey itself. The Abbey sits right next to the Hotel and can be accessed from the Hotel grounds. Many of our guests choose to have the ceremony in the Old Chapter House which is enclosed and still complete. The Abbey and grounds add a special romantic dimension to any wedding and we work closely with the staff at Historic Scotland, who are the custodians of the Abbey, to create a truly unique experience.
A typical Abbey ceremony would see the bridal party walk from the Hotel, accompanied by a piper, through the Abbey grounds to the Old Chapter House. After the ceremony we would serve drinks and canapes or strawberries in the Abbey Grounds.
