Whether you’d like to bring your family and friends with you to celebrate your marriage, or elope just the two of you, we look forward to welcoming you to our home. We can accommodate up to 19 guests overnight in our 10 bedrooms, and up to 40 guests in total for a ceremony and/or reception.
Blervie House offers a variety of options for where to hold a ceremony of marriage, blessing, vow renewal, handfasting or commitment. You might choose to be inside in one of our elegant rooms which can be dressed and set up with seating if you wish. You could also choose to be outside in nature on the terrace or on the grass beneath the old oak tree, with a view of the hills in the distance, or more rustic in the woods next to the loch. Where you choose might depend on your ideas or number of guests.
Depending on your chosen date Blervie House can be available on an exclusive use basis for a group, or you can book just a room if only the two of you. There is no additional charge to hold your ceremony at Blervie House, we just ask for a minimum two night stay (three nights if you have a larger group and need time to set up), and if just the two of you are travelling to Scotland and would like to be married legally, we would be honoured to act as your legal witnesses as our wedding gift to you.
To enter and marry in the UK, depending on where you live and where in the world you will come from, you may need marriage visas. All couples who wish to marry legally have to apply to the local Elgin Registry Office to have their marriage administrated – a simple advance application is necessary whether you’d like a civil, humanist, interfaith, religious or spiritual ceremony of marriage or handfasting. You can also choose have a non legal ceremony of handfasting, blessing or betrothal and we can guide you with where to find further information about the kind of ceremony you would like, whatever that is.
We can pass on contact details for whomever you need for your perfect day, beginning with the basic necessity of someone to lead the ceremony for you. Beyond that whatever else you need in the form of trusted and reliable suppliers – a photographer, caterers, a cake, florists, musicians, venue dressing, hair and make up artists – Blervie House even has its own dedicated room for getting hair and make up done, or relaxing with a pre-ceremony massage to calm your nerves!
We personally deal with all enquiries, and don’t currently have a brochure because every wedding couple is so different. So we invite you to call or email us to begin to talk about your initial ideas, and how we can help you to achieve them here at Blervie House.
