– Hannah and Michael”
Set at the end of a half mile long medieval driveway in 20 acres of private estate, it has secluded, mature gardens and lawns surrounded by its own ancient woodland, waterfalls and river. All in all it oozes character, adds a unique element to YOUR special day.
Couples and families can enjoy their ceremony in the Chief’s Room of the Tower, the barrel vault and a number of unique spots in the gardens. There is a tremendous variety of niche locations for wedding photos. Parties can take flowers from the garden when they are in bloom and we will provide petal confetti. Please view our Photo Gallery.
Why not have a piper playing on the parapet to welcome your guests as you arrive and after the wedding?
Enjoy an environmentally friendly, green wedding. Bonshaw Tower has its own micro hydro-electric generation system powered from the Caul Burn beside the Tower. The micro hydro-electric scheme provides enough power for ceremonies, the house and when is not being used is fed into the National Grid.
The Tower is also heated entirely by a biomass boiler that burns logs from the estate and other local sources. All our waste is fully recycled.
Please call us to discuss whether you would like a registrar or a local minister. Times can be adjusted to suit couples’ requirements, but generally take place between 1:00pm – 4:00pm.
There is plenty of parking for cars and minibuses around the house. We will be delighted to provide more details on numbers for different locations on the estate.
