We are delighted to hold weddings either inside Traquair House or in a marquee in the Traquair grounds. The maximum numbers for a sit down meal in Traquair’s Dining Room is 34 guests; however we can seat up to 50 by using the adjoining Lower Drawing Room. The Still Room is bright and friendly room which is perfect for very small wedding meals of up to 8 people. The stunning 17th century Drawing Room on the first floor of the house can take up to 50 people for a stand up drinks reception and if your party is under 30 guests dancing can be arranged on a small scale, a perfect room to have drinks before and after dinner.
Marquees are advised for weddings over 50 people or if you wish to have music and dance into the night. There are two main areas we would recommend siting your marquee. These are on the wine glass lawn in front of the house or in the old walled garden near the 1745 Cottage Restaurant.
Marquees can be luxurious or as simple as you like. We work with our preferred marquee specialist and we would advise you to contact us at the earliest opportunity to discuss your exact requirements.
The Cottage Restaurant may also be used for a more informal gathering in the evening. Up to 50 guests can be accommodated here and there is some limited space for dancing. A Bar and refreshments can also be arranged.
The Wedding Breakfast
Traquair House is proud of the fact that all our food is homemade and we specialise in using the finest quality Scottish produce sourced locally if possible. Please see our example menus. We are happy to interchange or offer alternatives if requested.
