Tie the knot at Carfraemill

A Rural Wedding

Your wedding day will be the best day of your life.  At Carfraemill we will make sure it's relaxed, fun and totally unique to you.  

This is definitely a 'best-of-both-worlds' location - rural with a real sense of the remote amid the Lammermuir Hills, yet very easily accessible from the buzz of Edinburgh (just 30 minutes) and close to all of the gorgeous Scottish Borders towns.  

We love small, intimate weddings (as few as three guests!) as much as we love full blown affairs, and can accommodate up to 300 guests.  You can choose from our four wedding spaces to perfectly fit the style and scale of your day: our beautiful marquee, an oak-panelled reception room, a country-chic private room and an exclusive site on our hillside farm. Please get in touch to request our wedding brochure.

Carfraemill Marquee

Our beautiful marquee is ideal for larger weddings as we can seat between 80 and 300 guests.  It’s fully-lined, has a large dance floor, a bandstand and its neutral decor means you can style it however you like.  A truly stunning space in which we can help you create a wedding completely unique to you. 

Reception Rooms

Our oak-panelled reception room - The Campbell Room - seats up to 140 guests.  It has a springing dance floor and a proper bar area - it's been designed very much with weddings in mind!  It's a room full of character and history, while still allowing you to style your day exactly as you would like it.

On the Hill

You also have the exclusive option of getting hitched 'On the Hill', a remote spot on our farm which is a mile from the hotel.  The views here are truly magnificent, stretching far down the valley over Lauderdale.  In a marquee, a tipee tent or even a yurt, you can enjoy your day with open skies and herds of sheep picking through the grass nearby. 

Locally-sourced menus

Wonderful food is at the heart of all the best weddings we’ve ever been to, and that’s why we are passionate about creating stunning menus for our brides and grooms. We work with some incredible local suppliers so you can be sure of the best seasonal and farm-to-fork ingredients – great news if you and your guests are dedicated foodies!

Gorgeous bedrooms for the wedding party

There is something special about having all of the wedding party gathered in one place for a wedding. If this appeals, we have 10 individually designed, country lodge bedrooms which can be exclusively hired for your wedding party and guests.

All bedrooms are stylish yet cosy with immaculate ensuite bathrooms or shower rooms.


We are licensed for civil and religious ceremonies at our main site at Carfraemill as well as at our "On the Hill" site. Otherwise, the gorgeous rural church of Channelkirk with its views across Lauderdale is just 5 minutes away.

Real Weddings

As you make your plans, we hope you find it useful to browse these photo boards of some gorgeous weddings we've had at Carfraemill.  We can recommend fantastic photographers based in the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh to really capture the spirit of your day.   

Luxury hen weekends

Carfraemill is a lovely place to hold a luxury hen weekend. Stay in our country-chic bedrooms, enjoy a locally-sourced dinner menu in a private room and have a lot of fun with our fab hen activities.  All packages include a delicious breakfast for your group. We cater for parties of 4-24, from £80pp including rooms, meals and activities.

Boutique Wedding Fairs

Our most recent wedding fair was in October 2016. Carfraemill's marquee was transformed by the incredible Get Knotted team showcasing 2017/18 wedding trends. Some of the region's most creative wedding suppliers also exhibited. We hope all of the lovely couples and groups who came took away as many ideas as we did.
